Episode Notes

Lawyers who listen to podcasts or read marketing blogs will have heard many times over that they should be using social media to market their practices. But who has time to maintain Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Tumblr, Instagram, and multiple other social media accounts? Furthermore, what really is the purpose of an online social presence for a law practice? Can lawyers really attract clients through social media?

In this episode of Lunch Hour Legal Marketing, Jared Correia interviews Leigh McMillan, vice president of marketing at Avvo, during Mass LOMAP’s 5th Annual Marketing Conference in Boston. Leigh explains the importance of participating in social media, how a lawyer’s presence can affect search results, and how to choose the right channel to increase your law firm’s visibility online.

Topics include:

  • How lawyers can attract clients on social media
  • Showcasing knowledge on Facebook
  • Google search results tied to Google+
  • Creating snackable content for YouTube
  • Accurate naming for searchable information
  • Opportunities for lawyers on Tumblr
  • The importance of having a mobile website
  • Developing your social profile and owning your real estate
