Rewards and Challenges of Podcasting with Matt Steinberg

Matt Steinberg, Akerman employment attorney, appearing on the Legal Marketing Studio podcast, June 2017.

Podcasting is a growing segment of the content marketing pie, and one that law firms are beginning to exploit in earnest. Akerman’s Matt Steinberg visited the Legal Marketing Studio podcast to discuss Akerman Worked Up, the employment law podcast he hosts. Our conversation covers how the podcast fits into his personal marketing and the larger Akerman brand, the rewards he’s found in producing and hosting the podcast, and the challenges that he and Akerman have overcome in launching the podcast. The episode runs a bit longer than usual, but it is packed full of valuable insight for everyone from veteran podcasters to those just dipping their toes into the podcasting waters.

Adapting to the New LinkedIn Interface with Bruce Segall

In early 2017 LinkedIn began rolling out its new interface. The changes were met with a mix of delight, acceptance and gnashing of teeth. Regardless of how one feels about the changes, in what ways is it necessary to adapt one’s business development strategy on the platform? What will continue to work? What will get a lower response? And what new opportunities are there? Bruce Segall of Marketing Sense joins me on this episode to explore what the changes to LinkedIn’s interface portend for users and suggest about the direction the platform will move in the future.
