Subscribe | YouTube channel

Have you seen that I have my own YouTube Channel?

Before we kick things off, and if you don’t want to read lots of info on my YouTube channel you can just check it out here.

I set one up in 2015/2016 to host my Q&A video and short Q&A promo video which you can view by clicking the links.  However a lot of you really liked those videos and asked for more video content, so I did start playing with creating content on that platform for you.

Thank you so much for all of the views, likes and comments (both on YouTube and on social media) it really is amazing to see.

So if you don’t already, please hit the subscribe button, it just means that you are informed every time a new post goes live.

What is on my Youtube channel?

My content is split between my two audiences, law students and lawyers.  It ranges from study tips, useful events and other information for law students.  There is also information for lawyers on creating content and using social media which really helps boost your client engagement.

Some of my videos include:

Q&A – Get to know me, Lawyer In The Making

What content is coming on my YouTube channel?

There is going to be a lot more of the same, I am very happy that you asked for more video content.  I have really loved making these videos, and can’t wait to film more.  I also have a couple of mini-series coming in the near future for both lawyers and law students.

2017 | Let’s talk about my company a little more!

2017 is the year that I want to show what I am capable of doing for law firms, lawyers and law schools. 

In 2016 I was quite reserved in showcasing and documenting what I can do as a company.

I really can’t wait to share with you more about that (and I have a specific website coming) but I was very fortunate that last year all of my work was word of mouth and recommendations which is and was amazing.

However this year I want to help more companies and law schools, and the only way to do that is talk more about what I can do, successes of previous clients and also why digital marketing is essential in the legal sector.

You know that I’m a massive law geek, and I am totally proud to say that.

I also love social media, producing content and writing blog posts which share legal news, events etc.

So when you combine those two you get my company.

There are so many benefits in terms of being on social media, but is is also really important that you manage social media properly.  There is no point in a having a social media account if you share updates, links and news once a month.

I love helping law firms, lawyers and law schools on all of these topics; social media, blogging, client engagement and website content – and I really do love training people on this (and the benefits of using social media and a blog to market your business).

So if you need help on any of the above or maybe your current marketing material could do with a revamp, then get in touch.

I like to think that I have a slight advantage in that I have worked for 7 years in the legal sector, and I understand how lawyers work and what clients want.

I hope that my insight and knowledge on how the law work,s means that I am able to easily demonstrate to you the benefits of an active social media strategy and what you can be doing to really enhance your business.

2017 needs to be the year that law firms and law schools are far more engaged online!

What do I do?

I get a lot of emails asking about what I do on daily basis so I thought I’d share with you just a few things that I do for law firms and law schools all over the world.

I don’t really have a standard week so here are just a few bullet points summing up a few of the things I might be getting up to.

Social media training

You know I love social media, and there are so many benefits today for the legal sector with social media however some people just don’t quite know how to do it or they don’t do it correctly. So my training sessions show you the best ways to engage with clients, potential clients and the legal sector as a whole.

Social media management

Some people just don’t have time to manage their social media accounts themselves and that’s totally okay, as that’s where I come in.  I can help by managing the social media platforms ensuring that there is consistency.

Writing blog posts

Sometimes you may stumble across a website and be reading their content whether it be a blog post or website content (service pages etc.) and that content might actually be written by me.

I write content for people that just don’t have the time to write it themselves.  Sometimes I might be named on the website as the author, or sometimes I am writing as a ghost writer.

If you’re particularly busy law firm or law school this is a great way to get content out if you don’t have the time to do it yourself, especially as you should be blogging or updating your news pages regularly.

Training on blogging

Now you all know I love blogging and I love showing other people how to do blog effectively.  Blogging is so important for law schools,  lawyers and law firms so my training helps explain why it’s important, the benefits, how to do it effectively, why it doesn’t have to be a time consuming exercise and also some of my top tips.

Speaking at events

I’m very lucky that I get invited to speak at events, from legal conferences to law schools.  I get to talk about social media for lawyers, why blogging is so important, what life is like as a law student (and now law graduate) as well a many other subjects.

I love speaking with you all, having great conversations and sharing some of my knowledge with you.

Rewriting website content

Very often I get asked if I can rewrite some of website content, whether it is services page, an about us or any other pages on website.

Conducting social media or website reviews

Very often people will have social media channels or a website and they just aren’t seeing the results or engagement that they want.  What I do is conduct a social media or website review where I check out various things online and then produce a report which shows you exactly what is and isn’t working.  How you can improve what you are doing, as well as how to make the most of these platforms. I throw in some of my top tips as well!

Writing content my blog

Part of my week is spent writing my own content for Lawyer In The Making.   I am so lucky that this still feels like a hobby to me which I think is the most important part.  I am a genuine law geek and writing content is so exciting, I love reading news stories, finding out the legal aspects of things, sharing events, books etc.  So if you do ever see a story that you think I might be interested in do share the link with me on social media.

Writing content of the other online platforms 

Sometimes I get asked to write content myself which is then shared on other platforms or online magazines. I absolutely love doing  this and recently I wrote a series of 30 blog posts for law students which are being shared on the Thomson Reuters website and as and when posts go live I will be sharing the links on here.

So there you have it a mini-breakdown of what I do, and if you are interested in any of the things I have mentioned above, or believe I might be able to help you, then please do get in touch.

2017 Law School Mission

Have you seen my 2017 law school mission?

At the end of 2016 I made a decision to have a series of things I wanted to achieve or start moving forward with in 2017, and one of them involved  law schools,

Nearly every law school around the world has a blog or news page on their section of the university website so it is quite frustrating to see them not be used to their full potential.

It got me thinking that maybe I could assist in that, but first I needed to ascertain why they weren’t getting used properly.

Is it because they think they don’t have time to write content?  Or maybe they don’t know how to share the content properly online? Or are they concerned about what to write, or who should be writing?

There are so many benefits to you as a law school and your students with  sharing  content online.  Plus it is a great way to engage with other law schools and also future students.  Prospective students check out your content online and what your website is offering, but an up to date blog or news page would give them such a great insight into what is going on in terms of extra-curricular activities, events, public lectures, student thought etc.

It would give them a far greater insight into life as law student at YOUR law school, rather than them just checking out the standard list of modules

You can check out my blog post and video about this portion of my 2017 mission here.

So I want to help you as best I can with this. 

Do you need help with knowing how to write blog posts? How to share the great content online? How to build up a bank of writers through your staff and students?

I am going to be running some very basic training sessions for your law school, and academics and students are welcome to attend.

So if you think you would benefit from a 1 hour session with some Q&A time, then  why not get in touch and book a session.

My training sessions can be in person or by a webinar link so that way if you do live abroad then you aren’t missing out.

I really do mean it when I say that I would love to help more law schools engage better online through this type of content, plus there is nothing worse than going onto a blog or news page and the last bit of information being dated 2014.

Why not start showcasing some of the amazing things you are doing!
