Tom Willis’s deep respect for marketing has resulted in a business that gets around 350 sign-ups every day, has over 10,000 5-star Google reviews, and four million website visits annually. And no, the business doesn’t have some astronomical marketing budget … It’s a simple legal advisory service for small businesses in Australia. It’s a mind-expanding episode 604, full of proven and inexpensive marketing ideas, of The (13 year-old, award-winning) Small Business Big Marketing podcast with your host Tim Reid.


A little more about Lawpath’s Tom Willis

Tom Willis is the co-founder of Lawpath, a business he started with some mates in 2014, and today Lawpath is the number one online legal platform for Australian small businesses.

In a large part thanks to Tom’s deep understanding of his prospects’ needs Lawpath:

  • Is responsible for starting six percent of all companies in Australia
  • Has assisted over 300,000 Australian business owners with their legal needs, saving them over $100M in legal fees
  • Has 350 businesses sign-up every single day to seek help with contracts, company registrations and legal advice
  • Has over 10,000 5-star reviews on Google 
  • And the website gets over four million visits annually

So, seriously … grab a pen and paper, or open up your Notes app as Tom shares his secrets to success including Lawpath’s:

  • Customer acquisition strategy
  • His cake method for combining various campaign activities
  • How to leverage key partners
  • The power of news-jacking
  • And why a blog post about driving without shoes became a powerful lead magnet!

I started by asking Tom what problem Lawpath solves for business owners … and I must say, his answer is beautifully to the point … A lesson for us all, right off the bat!!!
