Luckily, the internet has given you options like SEO, PPC and Avvo to market your business in a way that’s more conducive to your brand. In this article, I’m going to cover: Why you should invest your time into optimizing Avvo The “ranking factors” Avvo is looking at when showing attorney profiles Simple and easy tips to optimize your Avvo profile to get more organic views   In a nutshell, Avvo allows users to leave reviews (between 1 and 10) about an attorney’s work.
