But before doing this, you have to understand that the 11,273 visits to your website aren’t necessarily potential or existing clients or referral sources. A significant proportion will be visits from organisations that you simply can’t understand their motivation for the visit, not to mention spambots and opportunists.
If you’re a commercial legal practice there’s good merit in running some tracking under your firm’s website (granted that there may be issues if your firm is located in the UK). Whilst the tracking technology isn’t definitive, it can identify IP addresses and give your firm a heads-up what company that IP address is connected to.
It goes without saying that there’s real value in this because it can flag to your firm’s BD personnel of potential leads before they become leads if that makes sense!
In this respect, Leadworx isn’t a bad platform to kick off with.
If your firm isn’t a commercial practice, then tracking IP addresses etc won’t be helpful in retrieving the personal data associated with the address.
