MyCase Websites: Read Our Exclusive Report

By Neil J. Squillante | Thursday, October 23, 2014

Originally published in our free TL NewsWire newsletter. Instead of reading TL NewsWire here, sign up now to receive future issues via email.

THE LAW FIRM WEBSITE YOU THOUGHT YOU COULDN'T AFFORD

During the heyday of the yellow pages, a small law firm could create an advertisement that looked just as good as everyone else's. However, designing a website that works on all devices, and which has a blog, client portal, payment processing, and other modern amenities that clients expect can cost tens of thousands of dollars.

MyCase Websites … in One Sentence

MyCase Websites provides law firms with a modern website that integrates with the MyCase cloud practice management application.

The Killer Feature

MyCase pioneered the client portal. The company's founders felt that secure communications should reside at the heart of a practice management system. With MyCase Websites, your client portal becomes part of your website. And your website resides at the domain name of your choosing, further reinforcing your brand and making it seem like you built everything yourself.

Clients can go from reading your latest blog article to communicating with you, downloading case documents, paying a bill, reviewing upcoming calendar events and tasks, and accessing other case information you make available.

"MyCase Websites was a direct request from our customers," Founder and VP, Product Management Matt Spiegel told us. "It provides a professional online storefront, and enables law firms and their clients to easily and securely access the MyCase practice management software directly through the law firm's website."

Other Notable Features

You start by working with MyCase to select from a collection of professional designs with custom color options and layouts. These templates are "responsive," which means your website automatically adjusts to the size of the screen of each visitor to provide an optimal user experience. Google ranks responsive websites higher.

Speaking of Google, MyCase Websites ensures that you always use best practices for search engine optimization without having to learn what this means. For example, your web pages will contain keywords related to your practice, especially in the all important page titles and URL slugs.

The MyCase Websites content management system enables you to create new web pages and publish a blog without having to know HTML. Social media integration means you can automatically post links to your new blog posts to Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and more.

MyCase sets up a Google Analytics account for your website so that you can review traffic statistics and measure the performance of your marketing activities.

What Else Should You Know?

MyCase Websites costs $500 for the initial setup. Thereafter, the ongoing service costs $50 per month. The practice management software costs $39 per month per lawyer and $29 per month per non-lawyer staff. Learn more about MyCase Websites.
