In case you haven’t already heard, we here at SLS Consulting have been hosting a weekly tweetup to discuss SEO, blogging, social media, and more in relation to lawyers as well as in general.
For our second tweetup, we decided to exclusively discuss the many issues facing attorneys and law firms when it comes to Internet marketing. For many, social media is seen as being for younger audiences, and some don’t realize there is great value in engaging with such a large audience participating in social networking. We also covered the pros and cons of using accident victims’ names in blogs, which is a controversial topic in the legal community. We talked about whether it appears as though Google+ can benefit attorneys while the social media platform is in its beginning stages, and discussed why law firms and attorneys should have a mobile site for their website. Lastly, we talked about how press releases, typically seen as “old school,” fit into today’s fast-paced, social media-heavy marketing plans.
