Deborah Dodson called on our firm years ago to offer her expertise in setting up our website being the Neanderthal that I am, I went with a cheaper competitor. We got an abysmal and not interactive website and no business. The Pandemic hit and I scrambled to increase our exposure. I called Deborah and she got to work immediately with analysis of the problems and innovative cutting edge solutions. We now have a “kick ass” website that has trafficked good business to the firm. Deborah Dodson is the Ninja website advisor and I strongly recommend you do not make the same mistake I did and not get her on your team at the first opportunity. I say this as my butt still hurts from me kicking myself.

I’ve had the privilege of working with Deborah over the past several years. She is a true professional and is very hard-working and diligent. She cares about her clients and works to make sure they are her priority and more importantly, that her clients’ priorities are being met. I recommend Deborah and Strategic Alliance Marketing Group to anyone or any entity who is looking to boost their bottom line.

Deb has really helped us understand the analytics of our web traffic and understand where to spend marketing dollars, more importantly where not to spend. She is a great resource. If you don’t truly understand your web site reports, hire a pro, which is Deb.

According to the American Bar Association’s annual Legal Technology Survey Report:

  • 60%
    Over 60% of firms with 2-9 lawyers and over 80 percent of solo attorneys don’t take the time to make an annual budget for marketing; suggesting they primarily engage in "random acts of marketing and don’t intentionally plan marketing activities at all".
  • 60%
    Over 60 percent of respondents either don’t have access to or do not know whether they have web analytics which would provide insight into the effectiveness of their marketing efforts.
  • 75%
    Seventy-Five percent of people base the credibility of a business on how their website looks.

Your law firm’s marketing strategy must be skillfully planned, implemented, and managed. If your firm is engaging in “random acts of marketing”, your competitors will continue to beat you again and again.

We are here to help you win!

Meet Deborah

Hi! I’m Deborah Dodson, the founder of Strategic Alliance Marketing Group (SAM). I founded SAM in direct response to what I learned as a marketing manager with a large national legal marketing company.

Law firms need an advocate to look out for their best interests so they can focus on running their firms. Yes, it seems obvious, but a true advocate for your firm’s business is not easy to find.

I’ve seen lawyers bullied and outright lied to, so sales reps could meet their quotas. I’ve seen firms sold expensive marketing services with promises of big returns only to have their representatives disappear. Often the products didn’t produce results, leaving firms stuck in expensive long-term contracts.

Before starting SAM, clients often asked me to assist them in finding marketing products that produced results. I advised them when something my company offered would pay off and when it wouldn’t, even if it meant walking away from a sale, but I could not assist them with products that were not offered by my employer. I wanted to do so much more for my clients, but my hands were tied.

I founded Strategic Alliance Marketing with one goal, to provide the very best legal marketing advice, guidance, and services available with no ties to any one marketing vendor. Let’s do this!
