    Just reaching out to anyone that also does SEO for personal injury lawyers in large cities 1mill+ population minimum.

    L.A., Atlanta, Jax, Philly, NYC, Minn, Houston, Miami, etc

    General convo here, or more detailed via email or phone

    One of my main curiosities is of course $$$...how much other large firms are spending for their monthly expense budget, your margins and how you structure your payments (flat fee or per lead/case/etc to keep things legal and avoid fee splitting problems, etc)

    For reference, I'm not asking for SEO strategy or anything that would cause either of us more competition. And I've been, and continue to be very successful in some of the larger ones, ie it won't be a one sided convo with me just begging for info with nothing to give in return.

    No theory or guessing, only interested in others in the trenches actually getting it done FIRST HAND.

    It's the mesothelioma of lead gen (my adsense-keyword analogy for you)....there's $100s per lead but there's easier money made with other niches. Just my opinion.

    Thanks but meso/asbestos is something I'm into but I also at the same time consider it a different animal than the main personal injury/car accident type cases which is what I'm mainly interested in discussing

    Search out Perry Marshall and Zamir, best PPC resource I have ever read, and they use legal and dentistry in their examples, although it's not SEO, their elements of a landing page should be very useful for local seo as well.
    There's actually quite a few legal seo companies out there with informative posts on their blogs, pull them all into a FEEDLY..

    The thing with the more competitive niches is that depending on how you approach it, it could be costly both in terms of energy and cash or it could be completely the easiest thing you've ever done. That being said you have a few options within each:

    1. Offer to run their digital marketing setup for them that way you can keep first-hand tracking on all of the leads that come in via a phone or lead capture system.
    2. Try and keep them accountable or run your own independent operation for general leads within that niche without helping build their thing.

    In terms of bartering potential, the first allows you to establish a solid relationship with that particular brand and allows you to make more upfront and on the backend. So basically pay per lead and then percentage.
