What did we talk about in this episode?
- 1. Social media is more about connecting with the people there and not necessarily your practice.
Share employees, clients, and telling stories. Instagram & Facebook are great for developing your brand and help recruit employees that fit your culture.
- 2. Janine talks about how NextChapter does newsletters, beyond the normal articles or webinar signups.
Facebook ads take time to learn but try them for $10 per day and see what happens. Play around with targeting to find your ideal audience by occupation, interests, and more. Use Facebook pixel to track and retarget website visitors.
- 3. Twitter for law firms- how are people using it in 2018?
- 4. Social media marketing is more than putting stuff out there- you have to have a strategy or goal in mind, whether it is brand awareness or getting more clients.
