How did Noisy Little Monkey help Porter Dodson climb to the elusive 'position 0' spot on Google? By writing targeted content, supported by search term research, which answers the question their prospective clients are typing into Google.


The blog post 'can my ex-wife get my pension?' provides an answer to their problem  and supports them with valuable information during the research phase of the buyer's journey. This content is what attracts strangers to the website.


When the prospect clicks to read this blog post, they see a call-to-action which offers additional useful information. In this case, the call-to-action is to download a free guide called '6 Key Decisions For A Successful Divorce'.


In order to receive the guide, prospects are asked to fill out a form submitting a few key details including email address and location. These prospects are then entered into an automated email workflow which sends them the guide and qualifies them as a lead based on the criteria they submitted on the form. 

The Results


Inbound marketing is a win-win; the prospective clients are receiving help and advice tailored to their specific needs, and our legal client are receiving highly qualified, nurtured leads - and in this example, since our client is the first solicitor the prospect will speak to, our client is in pole position to win the business.
