Social media has taken a huge part in business development/growth within all industries. Want to make it into the business? You should probably familiarize yourself with some of the most popular social media platforms for small businesses.

What is Social Media for law firms

Social Media offers law firms a valuable opportunity to connect with their client base on a more emotional and personal level. Law firms do social media mainly through influencers and thought leaders, but also by directly engaging with clients and prospects through their own pages and profiles.

Here we are going to see some great examples of law firms that succeeded in using social media to grow their business and get more brand awareness. We’ll take apart each example and discuss each law firm’s social media strategy.

2. Blumenreich Law Firm

According to social media marketers, 80% of the content that you share on your page should be about your customers; answering their questions, increasing engagement, retweeting links, and sharing articles that they will find valuable. The 20% can be sales-oriented shares and directed towards gaining leads.

As you can see, The Blymenreich Law Firm does a good job of following this rule. In their Twitter feed majority of tweets are links to outside articles that would be of interest to their followers. You can also add an occasional sales pitch.

7. Pushor Mitchell

A good, frequently updated blog, is a key element in having a strong online presence. It helps establish your firm as knowledgeable on the topics that you address. It provides you with content to share on your social networks. This will help draw readers back to your website.

What makes a good blog? Well, it has to be interesting and appealing to your target audience. Unless your audience is lawyers, you want to avoid legal jargon! Speak in a voice that your readers will connect with.

Posting multiple times a week is a good idea! It will keep visitors (and search engines) coming back to your blog.

Take a look at Pushor Mitchell’s blog, Legal Alert, for an example of how this is done.
