Getting Inside Your Ideal Client’s Mind

Tapping Advanced Analytics to Pinpoint Target Clients

Today’s data platforms allow unprecedented client insight. But firms first must identify the appropriate pool to analyze. Resist spreading efforts thin across too many audiences.

Start by examining past clients and prospect interactions. Look for patterns around the industry, size, growth stage, tech culture, legal budgets, and more. Use statistical modeling and AI to determine which attributes correlate to becoming an active client.

These insights allow you to create profiles of your most valuable targets. For example, mid-sized biotech firms preparing for an IPO have distinct needs versus mature F500 retailers. Outreach can then be tailored accordingly.

Continuously Track Performance Data

Analytics is an ongoing initiative, not a one-time effort. Instrument online content with click-tracking pixels, embed engagement prompts into research papers, and tally referral traffic driven by owned channels and shares.

Setting up an executive dashboard brings this data together to observe trends and outliers. Monitor the response rate lift when switching formats, such as a webinar vs. whitepaper. Track how seniority level impacts downloads of specialized research reports.

Map Client Journeys to Pinpoint Triggers

Also, when there’s a change in the company’s leaders, it’s common to hire corporate lawyers to assist in reshaping how the company is run.

This shows how closely legal needs are connected to a company’s developments and changes.
