Practicing Lawyers Embrace Social Media
Here's the catch; the good folks at Avvo.com, a website designed to interface consumers of legal [and health care] services with the providers of those services, wanted a panel made of practicing attorneys; not just the usual "social media marketing" consultants.
Lawyers are not just dabbling in social media these days. For most, getting connected and developing a robust electronic profile is now a "catch-up" exercise.
So I will be addressing conference attendees on how, as a busy practicing attorney, I have utilized social media in my law practice. Along with the other panelists from around the country, I will be sharing my experience with utilizing social media to get our law firm message out to our target audience.
Thanks, in part, to the followers of this blog, I can point to sustained search results placing us near the top of hyper-local searches for legal services in Northern Oakland County.
As a preview to this presentation, I was interviewed by Colin O'Keefe [from the Seattle area] of LXBN TV. Here is a link to Colin's interview.
