It’s true. Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you might miss it. The same is true for marketing. Staying up-to-date on emerging marketing strategies is a full-time job. If you’re an attorney looking to get your name out there, make connections, or generate more clients, check out our Marketing 101 tips.
Marketing Is a Must
It might go without saying but we think it bears repeating. Your product won’t sell itself, so don’t be afraid to put yourself out there! Need some inspiration? Take a look at your competition. What are they doing? Don’t forget about your social media as well.
Utilize Social Media
Social media is one of the most cost effective and beneficial types of marketing available, With over 1.5 billion people on Facebook, it’s easy to get lost in the crowd, but it’s also 1.5 billion pairs of eyes that could be seeing you! Be smart about your social media strategy. Know your target audience and which social media channels work best for your content. Take a great photo of the cityscape outside your office? Post it on Instagram. Have a quick update about an upcoming company event? Compose a short tweet. Your message won’t fit in 140 characters? We recommend making the jump to email.

Ditch Snail Mail for Email
There are a myriad of tools available for small firm owners to help get their name out. Utilizing an effective email marketing campaign will be far more beneficial than traditional snail mail. For example, email allows your potential clients to receive news from you wherever and whenever. Having an email subscription sign up option on your website’s homepage will help you stay top of mind long after visitors have clicked out of your homepage.
