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.

Using Print; Balancing Marketing, Business Development and Business Process Improvement: a Conversation with Mark Messing

Mark Messing, the CMO of Duane Morris, kindly joined me on the Legal Marketing Studio’s last episode of 2016. What was originally intended to be a conversation focused on the way Duane Morris uses print publications within (and throughout) its marketing ended up covering quite a bit more ground. Mark generously shared his thoughts on the relationships between marketing, business development and business process; forging strong client relationships; building engaging pitch teams (and the need for them to rehearse!); the perception gap between a given marketing tool’s aesthetic value vs functional value; and where Mark sees the legal industry and legal marketing moving over the next few years. All in all, lots of really interesting insights in this fascinating podcast.

The print publications discussed in the episode can be seen on the firm’s website here.

20160923_123437_er

At the heart of nearly all marketing materials are words. How well those words are written will determine how effectively they reach the intended audience. Edie Reinhardt and I sat down to discuss writing well, writing with purpose and writing to strategic effect. With a background in both the law and publishing, Edie has a unique perspective on how to tailor one’s writing for a particular audience in a consistent, personal voice and maintain that writing over the long time span required of content marketing. Whether you’re writing for a legal audience composed of other lawyers or seeking to reach potential clients who are not legal experts, you’ll find plenty of insight in this conversation.
