We do a lot of marketing on the Internet by writing informative articles or blogs. This is how we get the word out about our Santa Clarita Divorce Service.
The other day, a friend of mine recommended we advertise on Craigslist. He said why wouldn’t you? It’s free?
So being the savvy Internet marketer I am, I decided to do a little research on Craigslist to see if this would be an appropriate place to market our divorce paralegal service.
So I went to Craigslist and researched the “Legal Services” section.
My first reaction was “I won’t be caught dead advertising my service on this site!”
When I searched for divorce services I found all kinds of hole-in-the-wall divorce services. What I found interesting is that the major idea behind advertising on Craigslist is to say how cheap you are. Everyone is talking about price. You would think they are selling used tires.
I also found that non of the people advertising divorce services actually have a website, business address or even a business phone number.
I looked up a phone number that was listed on one of the Craigslist ads for divorce services. I Google’d the phone number which was tied to a someones home. I dug a little deeper and found that not only was this company not a company at all, but that they were not even licensed to provide divorce document preparation at all.
This is the biggest problem with this industry. There are too many people saying they are paralegals when they are not even allowed by law to provide services to people.
This is most likely why they advertise on these underground sites so they can stay under the radar.
If you are going to do business with a Santa Clarita Divorce service, make sure they are licensed to perform divorce document preparation.
You can find our Santa Clarita Divorce Document Preparation Service license right on our website.
These folks out there give a bad name to us reputable companies. We end up having to fix everything they do wrong and they have zero accountability. Don’t fall prey to the low cost hole-in-the-wall-won’t-be-there-tomorrow divorce services.
Give us a call. We would be happy to help with your divorce case in Santa Clarita.
