I was privileged to serve on a panel last Saturday at the American Bar Association’s Annual Conference in San Francisco to address the subject, Tweeting Won’t Make You a Twit: Effective Twitter Marketing and Networking for Lawyers.
I wanted to share some of the most common questions I usually get asked when I talk about social media marketing for attorneys at our Rainmaker Retreat events. I’ve included links to past posts here that provide the best answers:
1. Do people and companies really use social media to find attorneys?
2. I’m nervous about my state Bar thinking I’m advertising — how can I protect myself?
3. I don’t have anything to say that’s interesting in 140 characters.
4. What types of things should I tweet about?
5. Can I mix personal and professional on Twitter?
If you’re looking for ways to use social media to boost your referrals and attract new prospects, you should attend an upcoming Rainmaker Retreat; here are the dates:
