Niche Celebrity Through Content – Michael Schein

Today’s social media and content platforms offer a valuable opportunity to build a targeted niche celebrity. The breadth of the internet means that even a narrow topic area presents a deep well of interested and engaged people. Michael Schein of Micro Fame Media joins me on this episode of the Legal Marketing Studio podcast to talk about using strategic niche content creation to build a kind of micro-fame within these audiences and extending one’s marketing reach and amplifying one’s influence.

Content requires purpose. Reframing content as part of the sales process helps it to drive lead intelligence gathering and ultimately generate more qualified leads. Jason Myers of Flightpath joins me on this episode of the Legal Marketing Studio to discuss why he frames content marketing in this way and walks us through his approach to content. Whether your firm is just starting to consider a content marketing campaign, pumping out content to no avail or driving significant business from content already, Jason’s insight will prove incredibly useful.

Good Photography is Vital in Effective Legal Marketing with Michael N Meyer

Good photography echoes and amplifies your marketing messages while effectively boosting engagement with written content. In this episode, I encourage attorneys (and marketers working with attorneys) to expand their concept of how they can and should use photographs or other visual content in their marketing. It is no longer enough to have a mediocre attorney portrait; nor is it enough to have only one’s attorney portrait. At the very least that portrait should be built around the firm brand; ideally it will be built around the firm brand, support its marketing strategies and exist within a library of like images that can be repurposed across the full range of communications that an individual attorney or larger firm is making use of.

Simplifying Content for Effective UX with Alex Acker and Nathan Crandall

As a kind of bonus to last month’s web design series, Alex Acker and Nathan Crandall of Adventure House join me to discuss the importance of simplifying content in order to effectively engage a firm’s website users. The challenge of focusing the wide range of content available on most law firms’ websites is one that has come up often in my conversations with legal marketers. Alex and Nathan discuss in detail their approach to content from a user experience (UX) perspective. The bottom line is that a considered approach to a site’s UX can lead to increased engagement and, ultimately, new business.
