Immediate Results with Niche Content a conversation with Jim Shenwick

At a Deliberate Solos meeting at the end of 2017 I heard Jim Shenwick recount how he’d built a niche content strategy to reach taxi medallion owners facing financial stress in the face of the industry disruption from apps like Uber, Lyft and Via. In this conversation, Jim describes how after reading an article in Crane’s business he recognized this un-met client need and business development opportunity and began creating content to reach these potential clients. Deftly implementing a strategy of writing content of value for these clients, he’s become a go to resource not only for underwater taxi medallion owners but also journalists and investors.

You can read his writing on the topic at his blog.

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.
