LMS IRL: Michael on “Podcast Savvy” Panel at LMANE Conference

I’ll be at the Legal Marketing Association’s Northeast Regional Conference speaking on the “Podcast Savvy” panel later today. Susan Peters of Greybridge PR is moderating and Angela Robinson (Marketing Communications Manager at Finnegan) and Robert Ambrogi (host of Law Next) are my co-panelists.

If your firm is planning a podcast or looking to take one to the next level the panel will provide a wealth of information. And, if you can’t make the panel do at least say hello!

Boosting Visibility as a Legal Insurance Preferred Vendor; a conversation with Attorney Brian Zimmet

Attorney Brian Zimmet appearing on the Legal Marketing Studio Podcast

In this episode, Brian Zimmet of the Zimmet Law Group joins me to expand on how he recognized the opportunity that being a preferred vendor on legal insurance plans presents, their place in his marketing strategy and the business development benefits that they have reaped for his firm. We also go on a brief tangent to discuss his firm’s use of digital and social media and why he’s brought these efforts in-house.

The Attorney’s Role in Business Development with Steve Wilson

As the head of Osborne Clarke’s New York City office, Steve Wilson has a unique perspective on attorneys’ need to develop new business and manage existing client relationships. In this wide ranging conversation we circle around the role of the attorney and its evolving relation to business development.

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.
