Law firms can increase their website presence and connect with prospective clients through blogging, search engine/pay-per-click (PPC) campaigns on Google, Bing, and Yahoo!, social networking on Facebook and Twitter, and public relations campaigns.

Step-by-step instructions are provided for creating PPC ad campaigns on Google, Bing, and Yahoo!, registering domain names, transferring domain names to a hosting server, and creating business pages on Facebook and Twitter.
