Here’s what I don’t do:
- Post to your law firm’s social media channels on your behalf just to fill a quota.
- Assume that organic social reach is still strong enough to drive lots of leads for the average law firm.
- Fail to integrate your legal content marketing strategy with your social media strategy.
- Help you build a personal brand on the social media platforms that are the most relevant to your potential clients.
- Focus on thought leadership and authority building.
- Streamline services to save you time and money by deeply tying advanced SEO content with proven social media marketing strategies.
- Teach and empower you to get actively involved in social media and create conversation and communication with potential clients – this is where the engagement happens.
- Ensure that your accounts are either active or closed, so that prospective clients, visitors, and referrals see only recent, relevant content.
The LinkedIn sessions at legal marketing conferences are always packed for good reason. LinkedIn is a great way for you to build thought leadership and authority, as well as foster new relationships with peers, mentors, and other legal professionals.
I created the 9-Step LinkedIn Road Map for Law Firms that provides a solid foundation for LinkedIn marketing for lawyers. With this framework, I can help ensure your law firm’s company page and individual attorney profiles are up to date and optimized for maximum exposure. Together, we’ll make sure your firm is taking advantage of all of the best ways to promote your content and services.
By 2022, web videos will represent more than 82% of all consumer internet traffic, according to Cisco. Pew Research states that 73% of adults in the U.S. use YouTube. What many law firms don’t know is that YouTube is the second largest search engine after Google.
Video marketing is clearly booming, yet many law firms aren’t taking advantage of using video to create a personal connection with potential clients.
I’ve personally seen the excellent results of video marketing after having done numerous user tests on our landing pages and law firm websites with and without video. It’s always a pleasure to see how well visitors react to videos of attorneys answering questions or discussing topics their target audience wants to know about. I use a personally developed, Google-approved video marketing strategy that positions your law firm as an authority in your niche and improves your SEO.
I can work with you directly to handle your YouTube marketing, or I can help train your staff on effective strategy and optimization skills.
Facebook’s organic marketing reach is so low that you may be tempted not to post at all. However, Facebook ads can be a very quick and powerful way to get leads, particularly in certain legal niches like mass tort, estate planning, or elder law.
Since you need a Facebook page to run ads, it takes minimal effort to also do organic marketing. Then, it’s critical to test each to determine which type of Facebook marketing is most effective for your law firm.
Some benefits of Facebook marketing for law firms is the ability to showcase legal content, promote upcoming events, demonstrate results, and build relationships and credibility.
Facebook Messenger also works well as a conversion and customer service tool.
Many law firms avoid Twitter marketing because it just seems too difficult or unfamiliar. However, with specific strategies, you can take advantage of the unique type of exposure that Twitter has to offer. Twitter can become a powerful asset for your law firm when you engage with journalists who look for experts to feature in various articles. Engage with journalists who may want to consult or quote an attorney in your field. When a journalist or other notable figure refers to you, their following will naturally be directed to your social media pages, creating the opportunity for you to engage with multiple potential new clients.
Marketing on Other Social Media Platforms
There are many other social media platforms that attorneys have had success with. What is most important when choosing where you’ll establish your presence is ensuring you’re on the same platforms your target audience is on and where you can stay consistently active and relevant.
