If you’re in the market for a new website for your law firm, you’ve likely come across OneFirst Legal and LawLytics. While the initial pricing for each is comparable, that’s where the similarities end. Below, we break down some key differences between the two law firm website companies, exploring important plan and site features like underlying content management system (CMS), accessibility and contract terms.
Why it Matters: WordPress is the leading open-source content management system. When your site is built on WordPress you have more flexibility and freedom to move it to another host, without significant cost. Although they may not come with formal long-term contracts, sites built on proprietary platforms create a phantom contract lock-in with no termination date.
No. LawLytics sites are built on their proprietary platform.
Yes. With OneFirst, you own your site and are never tethered to a proprietary system.
Why it Matters: One in four Americans is living with a disability. Having an accessible website is imperative to expand the reach of your practice and serve ALL members of your community.
Why it Matters: Over time, websites become outdated and often fail to remain a dynamic resource you’re proud to share with clients, prospects and colleagues.
No. With the click of a button, you can generate a new design for your law firm without a professional designer.
Yes. Every two years, one of our expert website designers will redesign your site. You’re not paying for a DIY solution and with OneFirst, you’ll have expert support every step of the way.
Why it Matters: High-quality content is an essential component of every law firm website, helping to establish credibility with prospective clients and the search engines.
Yes. OneFirst is pleased to offer a library of attorney -written content to all clients. Our team of attorney content writers is also available for custom content projects.
Why it Matters: When it comes to local search engine optimization, your firm can’t afford to neglect your Google Business Profile which should be optimized for placement in Google’s Map Pack and loaded with reviews that serve as social proof in the attorney-selection process.
Why it Matters: Even if your firm isn’t looking to rank well for highly competitive search terms, you will benefit from having a team of SEO experts who can advise on website development best practices and are just a call away, in the event you decide to dial up your marketing efforts.
Why it Matters: When it comes to protecting your bottom line, being able to predict future marketing costs is critical. All too often, website hosts provide a low-introductory cost in year one and then continue to increase fees in subsequent years.
Yes. You are guaranteed the same low monthly fee for three years after signing.
