Prospecting is the first step in the client acquisition process.

It’s all about identifying ‘potential’ clients – in other words; prospects.

The main goal of prospecting is to create a database of potential clients and then regularly communicate with them to eventually turn them into actual clients.

These potential clients are individuals/businesses/companies you have previously made contact with and had some interest in seeking a lawyer/your services.
