Seven Critical Factors & Four Underlying Principles
For years CRM systems, sales coaches, pipeline reports have annotated contacts/organisations as ‘Suspects’. Suspects being turned into ‘Prospects’ is a ratio often reviewed by the Management team with key metrics around how many suspects become prospects, then are taken through the sales pipeline to being a ‘demonstration’, then ‘proposal’ onto ‘negotiation’ and finally ‘closed – won’.
Sales is a process. There should be a process to identify the people/organisations that are looking for the type of solution your business delivers, so that time, effort, energy, and cost can be spent in the right areas.

Legal IT professionals have an important seat at the table when it comes to managing a law firm’s portfolio of domain names. In fact, their participation in the process is critical. Domain names are essential to law firms because they, along with the websites and email accounts they enable, represent the firm’s digital identity to the world. However, legal IT is often spread thinly with other diverse responsibilities, including hardware, software, network, training, help desk tech support, partnerships, and more. Their overwhelming workload leaves legal IT little time to focus on domain-related issues. Therefore, the best strategy is for legal IT to focus on the most pressing domain management needs to ensure they are tended to sufficiently.

When I first entered the legal world in 2006, there was a distinct lack of technology available. People were starting to send emails and use Microsoft Word, but much of my time was spent leafing through mountains of paper infested with different Post-it notes. Over a decade later, in early 2020, I was introduced to legal technology, and I could immediately see its potential impact. Fast forward to 2022, and law firms and corporate legal departments are beginning to recognize the value of technology. Indeed, research is beginning to show that it is no longer sustainable to offer legal services without utilizing technology, particularly when an automated, simplified and ultimately more efficient way of doing things is available.
