How to Build Legal Products: Productizing Through Document Automation and Legal Applications

Turning legal services into legal products can be done by creating document automation workflows and legal apps, and by structuring new revenue models. To build legal products, you’ll want to think strategically about the process of scoping, building, and launching your legal products. We created this series on “productizing legal services” to educate you on what we and our clients have found to be most successful. We cover everything from defining your initial audience, to tools to help you build, to marketing and monetizing your legal applications.

Launching, Marketing, and Monetizing Legal Applications

  • Building a Custom Landing Page and Payment System. Create a custom webpage for your clients. Add resources other than document automation and create custom payment plans. These websites help you do it all without code. Note that many Documate users choose to use our Stripe integration to collect client payments, but these websites are a great option if you want to further customize your landing page, payment, membership, and client account process.
  • Legal Service Delivery Revenue Models. We discuss ways in which you can monetize your legal apps through alternative fee structures – everything from flat fees to subscription-based recurring revenue models.
  • Common Legal Questions. We cover the legal issues around building legal products, and why legal apps have been deemed in certain jurisdictions to be “legal information” not legal advice.
