Why You Need a Rocketbook to Take Your Law Firm to the Next Level
The Rocketbook is an amazing tool that can help take your law firm to the next level.
However, we don’t want you to give into the shiny object syndrome. That is why we are taking the time to explain the Rocketbook in-depth today.
We are going to teach you how to use it to become more successful and help your law firm grow.
The Rocketbook is a spiral-bound notebook. It comes in different sizes and with different lines. You can get it with a spiral on the top or a spiral on the side.
It also has reusable pages. It has fancy paper that allows you to wipe it clean when you’re done. You don’t have to keep buying new notebooks because you can fill it all up, wipe it all down, and reuse it again.
Finally, the Rocketbook works with a particular type of pen. If you don’t use this particular type of pen it won’t erase. Each Rocketbook comes with the type of pen you need.
The Rocketbook also comes with an app. With it, you can scan a page or multiple pages from your notebook and program the app to tell it where you want that page sent. At the bottom of each page in the Rocketbook, there are little symbols. When you’re done writing your notes, you can check off one of those symbols and that’s how the Rocketbook knows exactly where to send the scan of your document.
The other part of the app that comes in handy is the ability to run OCR (optical character recognition) on your document. It reads your handwriting and turns it into typed text. This can be very nice if you want to save a copy of the text into your practice management software or if you’re trying to copy and paste it into another digital document.
Why You Need One
The number one reason you should get a Rocketbook is because the investment is so small compared to the benefit you’ll get from it. It’ll allow you to cancel your Amazon subscription that keeps delivering legal pads to your office regularly.
It also will help you in building new habits. It provides a great way to be able to still capture and share information across your team without handwritten notes. There are also plenty of situations where handwriting works better than typing onto a computer or a tablet. For example, in an intake scenario where a potential client has come into the office and you’re sitting across from them at a table, you don’t want a big computer in between you and you don’t want the constant noise of the typing or your tablet to get in the way. It can be much easier to build a rapport with the client if you have a notebook (such as a Rocketbook) sitting right in front of you.
Another great reason for having a Rocketbook is because holding information in your head is not allowing you or your team to grow. Your team probably comes up to you a lot and asks you tons of questions. This makes you frustrated but they’re asking you all these questions because you didn’t take the information out of your head and give it to them so that they can use it to do their job. Therefore, the more information you get out of your head and write down, the better you’ll be helping your team help you.
Finally, you should have a Rocketbook because your team is tired. They’re tired of hunting through your office to find handwritten notes and yellow sticky notes. They’re tired of looking like a fool by asking clients the same question multiple times because they can’t find where you wrote it down and they don’t know that you’ve already asked it. Having a Rocketbook will lead to much better communication and service.
One of the best ways to use the Rocketbook is for forms. Clients can fill out intake forms on them when they come into the office. You can also use it for forms that your firm uses internally. It’s a very consistent tool for handling those documents.
You can also use it to keep a running list of to-dos for other team members. You can write a note and then, with the click of a symbol, have the app scan it and send it right over to your assistant or associate.
