Blog Post Ideas for Law Firms

Meeting with clients all day and managing the financial aspects of a small but growing law firm is hard enough. Adding to the difficulty is managing the website. Part of managing a website is adding regular blog content. Yet, for many attorney's, writing is not the hard part. The hard part is getting ideas...finding the kinds of questions people are really asking online.

Oakes Writing Website Services Has 208 Ideas for Criminal Defense Blogs

When we get a new client, the first thing we do is develop an editorial calendar for them. This is because we do not want to just create blog posts and web pages on-the-fly. We want to find trending topics, sure, but we also want to know the questions people as day-in-day-out about their business.

So, we do extensive research. We have gotten so good at doing this research that we decided perhaps we should share the gravy. To help our readers who have criminal defense law firms create their own blog posts, we compiled a list.

The following list contains 208 of the most common questions people are asking online about legal topics. This list is specific to southwest Louisiana, but is applicable virtually nationwide. They are provided in the order of the most popular starting with the first.

If you blog at the modest rate of four posts per week, this list will provide you with enough ideas for a year.

And of course, if you ever need any other help with blogging, your website, online marketing, get in touch.
