Lawyers Get More Phone Calls From Google Maps 3-Pack Optimization
The 3-Pack commands the largest area of prime screen real estate on local search results pages, and the companies in the Top 3 spots garner the lion’s share of the clicks.
Even better than clicks or website traffic, law firms that rank in the top spots of the 3-Pack can expect to get more phone calls from prospective clients. A lot more phone calls. Google has changed the way consumers behave when searching for services online.with the Maps 3-Pack.
Potential clients are more likely to choose a firm in the top spots of the 3-Pack based on the reviews posted by previous clients, and then use the click-to-call feature in your Google My Business listing to contact you… often without ever visiting your website.
If you want more phone calls from prospective clients, optimizing your firm’s listing for the Maps 3-Pack is the highest-ROI marketing investment any attorney can make.

PRO TIP: Most legal directory sites will offer you a ‘badge’ to add to your website for the purpose of promoting your directory profile. DO NOT add these badges to your website.
