Have You Explored the Lure of Social Media?
I've gone fishing a few times, with a very low catch-and-release success rate. My numbers have been unacceptable by any stretch of an angler's imagination. But looking back, it wasn't such a great mystery as to why my line got so few bites compared to others: I used the wrong bait.
It's the same with online legal marketing. If you're not using the right tactics to attract leads, your result may be the same — lots of near misses that may result in a boatload of lost opportunities with potential clients.
Social media may be the hook your firm needs to attract new business.
What can a social media presence do for you? It's a way to establish your firm's personality, showcase your legal expertise, maximize your online visibility and improve your search engine rankings.
FISH WHERE THE CLIENTS ARE AND QUICKLY GET A BITE
Which social media strategies and tactics "reel them in"? There are a few that will make a difference:
- A blog that matches your website design and weekly blog posts written by seasoned legal copywriters can improve visibility in search engine results
- A content plan and calendar tailored to legal practice areas and a content management system to edit and post in real time
- Submission to major blog directories and legal blog lists for targeted exposure
- Creation of your firm's Facebook® page, LinkedIn® company profile and Twitter® account — all fed automatically by your blog posts — and a Google+TM profile
All of the above can get your law firm involved in the social media conversation.
