Digital, Social Media and Ethics with Ethan Wall

Digital marketing is no longer an also ran in marketing discussions. In many ways, digital is front and center. Within the digital realm, engaging social media is becoming a necessity. This creates a number of challenges, both practical and ethical. Ethan Wall joins me on this episode of the Legal Marketing Studio Podcast to discuss the state of digital marketing in 2018, engaging in social media strategically, planning content production and staying within the ethics rules. He shared so much good content I had to break it out into three separate episodes.

Ethan walks the walk. You can find him on Twitter (@SMLawandOrder), Facebook, LinkedIn, Youtube and Instagram (@socialmedialawandorder). Oh, and he blogs about social media marketing for law firms, too.

And he wrote a book on social media for lawyers.

Learning to Sell as Young Attorneys

Chris Seleski and M. Frank Francis discuss learning to sell as a young attorney on the Legal Marketing Studio podcast; New York City, May 2017

One aspect of legal marketing that I have always found fascinating is the career shift that occurs when it becomes incumbent upon associates and new partners to begin selling their services and those of their firm in order to move their careers forward. Chris Seleski and M. Frank Francis join me to discus their experiences navigating this shift. We discuss the strategies they have employed, the firm resources they have taken advantage of and the role played by various bar associations to which they each belong. Experienced partners at small and mid-size firms will find this conversation useful as it hints at ways they can support and encourage their associates’ business development efforts.

Recorded May 24th, 2017 at the offices of Tolmage, Peskin, Harris, Falick.
