According to Forbes, digital marketing will overtake television ads in 2017 for the first time ever. Even so, commercials are still one of the most popular forms of marketing due to the fact that so many consumers still watch TV. Recent data compiled by Total Audience Report shows that Millennials watch 22 hours of TV per week, while older generations watch even more. Adults aged 50-64, the sweet spot for most Social Security disability firms, watch a staggering 43 hours of TV every week. This equals about 6 hours of TV every day.
According to data collected by the Pew Research Center, older Americans are using the web more than ever before. In 2016, 64% of people age 65+ used the internet, while 87% of users aged 50-64 were online. This means that if your firm doesn’t have a website, you should invest in one as soon as you can. Unfortunately, this older audience may not be as tech-savvy as other populations. Social Security disability attorneys in particular may be at a disadvantage when trying to get consumers to contact your firm online. Here are some tips you should keep in mind when building your website.

Here are some tips to help your firm succeed in a saturated market by simply modifying the copy you use on your website.
