What is Bail Bonds SEO?

After Google banned all Bondsman ads in 2018, bail bonds have been deprived of a valuable lead generation tool and an easy way to marketing. The advertising ban looks like an irreversible loss of prospective customers. After the initial shock, bail bonds, of course, looked out for other means of sourcing online traffic. SEO was and still is, the main driver in generating traffic, often overlooked by many because it takes more time and work. Paid ads are too expensive by themselves, and in comparison to SEO, as nearly 80% of people ignore them and click on organic results. If you did run ads before the policy change, and you haven't been on the first page of Google, regardless of the leads you got, you were losing month over a month, almost 8 out of 10 prospects. What SEO will do for you is list your business in the top 10 results for bail bonds queries in your area (see image below).

 

 

 

How can bail bonds be found?

Go ahead and fill in the form on this page, sharing your site and location, and I will make sure you rank for bail bonds keywords in Google. I will fix all the issues that block right now your website from showing up on the first page and start building your traffic. The second step is checking the local competition to see what areas we can improve and keyword opportunities to exploit. Then, I group the keywords based on relevancy and map them on landing pages. Content improvements can make the difference in rankings as most of the competitors' sites will not be optimized the right way. The final step is to make sure all mentions of your business on external websites, i.e., Google My Business, have the same information and enough details.

 

 

How does local search work for bail bonds?

Local search results feature bail bond agents that are close to the defendant's location and has to do with Google Maps. If you do a search or take a look at the image above, you'll see a map embedded in Google search results. Google Maps listings appear in mobile devices, and that's important as your defendants (and their relatives) won't be sitting in front of their PCs looking for an agent to bail them out but will be using their phones. Due to screen limitations in mobile phones, bail bond services need to show up in the first results to get calls.

 

 

What is the cost of SEO for a bail bond company?

The SEO Starter package is priced at $289/month. My packages include the same things in terms of content optimization, content marketing, keyword numbers, etc. The only difference is in the intensity of the campaign. You understand that a campaign that costs $289/mo will not have the same results over time as a campaign of $1,200/mo. It is best to share with me exactly what you need so I can give you the best offer.

 

 

When to Expect Results?

Depending on the package you sign up for, it can take from 1 to 6 months to see local page one rankings. If your site is close to the first page, it may reach the top 10 in a few weeks. Fast results require, first of all, an SEO package that provides speedy results. Other factors that come into play are: i) low competition, ii) website and server free from SEO issues, iii) proximity to page one. If you're not close to page one, a ballpark figure is 3 to 6 months.

SEO for Bail Bonds

 

 

What Are Bail Bonds

A bail bond is a set amount of money one pays to avoid jail until the court trial. The bail bond amount is regulated by state laws and is proportional to the offense or crime accused. Some offenses don't require bail bonds, whereas others require a bail hearing before releasing the accused. Some US states don't allow bonds for bail. When the court session is over, the bail money is returned to the payer. Bail bonds can be denied to persons who don't comply, i.e., skipping court dates or commit unusual crimes.

 

 

What Are Bail Bond Contract Violations?

The contract doesn't allow moving to another house or city without a permit issued by the authorities. It also forbids the consumption of alcohol and the use of drugs. Regular checks may be another requirement. Failure to appear in court is a severe violation, and when the defendant is arrested, he/she loses the option to set another bail and will remain in jail until the next court date.

 

 

What Are the Types of Bail Bonds?

Cash bonds have a relatively low amount required to be paid fully in cash. Surety bonds, on the other hand, are high, so bail bond agents step in and help to pay the bond. Typically they agreed with their defendants and their co-signers (who guarantee the agreement conditions and give collateral assets to secure the payments) to present themselves on the court date and charge them with around 10% of the total bond. Collateral assets are anything valuable that the co-signer can put into the agreement, i.e., vehicles, real estate. There are also other types of bonds (immigration and federal).

How to Find the Right Bail Bond Company?

When the stakes are high, as in the case of your freedom, reputation is key to doing business. Professional bond agents score high in reputation grades at their association Better Bail Bureau lists and will show you their license when you ask for it. They will take time to explain the contract conditions, their fee structure, and how the state regulates it. They should also explain the payment terms and schedules, the collateral, the interest charged, and what happens when the defendants violate contract conditions or skip the court date. The defendants need to carefully read the entire contract before they sign it and get a written copy of it. Most states set at 10% of the bail, and all bond companies need to comply with the minimum fee. So, for a bail of $20,000, the bail company will charge a nonrefundable fee of $2,000. The defendants have been served with a court date. If the defendants skip the court appearance, they and their co-signers are required to pay the bond company the remaining fee of $18,000. The contract provides collateral to cover the bond, and the agent is required to explain to the defendant and the co-signer what happens to the insurance they put in the contract when they breach the agreement.

-- Prisons have been struck from the COVID-19 virus with hundreds of reported cases in inmates and employees for the following reasons:

1. Inmates are kept in close quarters which favors the quick spread of the contagious virus through wards;

2. People in custody are moved in and out of prisons which brings new cases into less affected prisons and spreads to other systems;

3. The prison system, with loosely followed medical protocols, is not ready to fight a pandemic.

-- Local bond agents see a decline in bonds being done because of the COVID-19 restrictions. Accused people don't search for bonds because some of the court dates have been pushed out. The 30-day postponement in the most district and superior courts, plus the issuing of citations and releases, reduced the number of arrests and the need for bonds. There is also a significant decline in people who have skipped out on bail. Bond companies expect things to normalize and rebound gradually as an immediate increase will crash the system with people not on bond.

-- A door-to-door bail bond (grandparent) scam is running in 35 New Jersey towns. Several law enforcement agencies have issued warnings about a phone call fraud from someone posing as a lawyer or relative claiming a child or grandchild has been arrested and needs to be bailed out of jail. The scammer instructs older people that a bail agent will come to collect the cash because of the executive order requiring people to stay at home.
