Clio’s Client Satisfaction Pilot Program in beta
Be honest: Do you really know how well you and your firm are performing for your clients?
Collecting feedback is an often overlooked part of the client-relationship experience—according to the 2018 Legal trends Report, 37% of customers surveyed don’t regularly collect feedback from customers, while 42% collect feedback only casually. But, neglecting client feedback can be a big mistake.
BTI research shows law firms that invest in client relationships see serious returns. Specifically, they reap 30% higher profits, double the fees from a single client, and 35% higher client retention rates.
Clio’s Client Satisfaction Pilot Program helps you easily collect, review, and monitor client feedback so you can offer better legal service to your clients. Sign up for Clio’s Client Satisfaction Pilot Program, now in beta, and you can use Clio to collect more—and more consistent—client feedback. This lets you benefit from negative feedback, close feedback loops, and make more informed decisions.
Also, the Client Satisfaction Pilot Program helps you track your success with client satisfaction using a widely-recognized metric, Net Promoter Score (NPS®), so you can get data-driven insights into whether clients would recommend your services.
Note: The Client Satisfaction Pilot Program feature available to North American users only. You must be an account administrator to enable and use the feature.
Manage your potential clients with the Clio Grow Lead Inbox
You want to capture every potential client (“lead” in marketing lingo) and prospective opportunity, but when you’re managing these leads manually, new business can easily slip through the cracks.
The Clio Grow Lead Inbox offers a central location in Clio Grow where you can sync new leads and potential clients from your WordPress website, chat bot, virtual receptionist and more. It captures lead information automatically, so there’s no risk of the error that comes with manual entry.
With the Lead Inbox, you also have the opportunity to assess whether a client is a fit for your law firm, so you can take the next steps quickly and efficiently—whether you want to prioritize a lead as a potential new client, or refer a lead to someone better suited to their need.
With the Clio Grow Lead Inbox, you can better manage and convert potential clients into new business, because:
- You’ll capture interest, and information—without the manual work. Use the power of multiple marketing channels as you capture information (via an intake form) and sync information directly and securely (to Clio Grow). Bonus? If you choose to convert a lead to a client, this data syncs from your client intake software to Clio Manage—removing duplicate data entry.
- You know your best clients, and your business. By clearing your potential backlog of time-consuming and unsuitable leads as early in their intake process as possible, you’ll save time—so you can focus on those that are the best fit for your firm.
- You can focus on the channels that convert best. Over time, you’ll discover your most valuable sources of business, whether that’s your website, a state bar listing, or a colleague who often refers business your way. You can then use this information to make better decisions about where to spend your time and budget for marketing and business development, so that you can find the right clients more efficiently.
That’s it for March! Stay tuned next month for more updates (and new ideas to help your law firm grow even more)!
