As we cope with the loss of our old friend Google Plus, we can now say hello to a new(ish) and improved way for your business to share news: Google Posts.
Your law firm has updated all of its digital assets, you’re posting regularly on social media channels, adding content to the website once a week, and scheduling your Q2 e-newsletter to go out. Now what should you do in terms of marketing?? Below are four innovative ways to market your law firm you may not have tried… yet.
Despite the proliferation of digital communication tools, in-person events remain a crucial component of law firm business development best practices. In 2015 alone, companies poured $572 billion into experiential marketing or engagement marketing initiatives – this type of marketing directly engages consumers and gets them to participate hands-on with a brand (e.g. SWSW, sporting events, and large product launches). Live events have even been called a “critical component” of every outbound marketing strategy by some of the biggest players in the digital marketing business. In-person events continue to top various lists as one of the most effective tactics for B2B content marketers.
If your law firm is like any business, you need to conduct at least some form of marketing or business development to keep in touch with your customer base and to stay relevant in your industry.

I get new cases for firms using social media. Period.
