YouTube URL | Lawyer In The Making

So excited to say that I finally hit 100 subscribers on YouTube so I now have my own custom url.

https://www.youtube.com/c/LawyerInTheMaking

I am so pleased you all said you wanted more videos after my Q&A video, and whilst I had always considered filming more I was very anxious in case it wasn’t what you wanted… so thank you for encouraging me to step out of my comfort zone.

I am planning on filming a lot more content in September again, so make sure you hit that subscribe button!

p.s. a slight shameless plug but I am going to be sharing a lot more tips on how to engage better with LinkedIn on my 7 day social media online training for lawyers so make sure you sign up to that here.

It is available to purchase all year, but if you book before the launch on 1st September 2017 you receive the training for £30 instead of £70.

 

Launching | Social Media Summer School For Lawyers And Law Firms

Welcome to the Lawyer In The Making Social Media Summer School! 

The Social Media Summer School for lawyers and law firms is a great way to work on your social media, improve your engagement and really understand the role social media can play for you and your business.

Social media is fundamental for lawyers and law firms; it is a place to share and discuss legal news, engage with lawyers around the world, and show potential clients that you are active in the legal sphere!

Who is the Social Media Summer School for?

The Social Media Summer School is for lawyers and law firms predominantly (though the information is useful for law students!).

Whether you have just set up your social media accounts, are thinking about doing so, or have had them for a while – there is something for everyone.

Plus the information I am going to be sharing is applicable to anyone based anywhere in the world!

A bit of background about me

I have been building up my law blog for approximately 8 years now and have written content and trained lawyers and law firms all over the world on all things digital marketing.  I am a law geek, but I also understand the importance of social media and blogging for lawyers.

Having had over 8 years experience working in the legal sector, I get lawyers (and I also understand clients).  That means I can tailor the training to what you (and your clients) need and want!

So why have I created the Social Media Summer School?

Some of you have had my 1-1 and group training sessions on social media and blogging (whether that be online or in person). However I wanted to create something that is accessible to even more of you, and something that you can use time and time again!

What is covered?

There are 6 lessons and 1 bonus session included in the summer school.  These sessions will include the essentials from setting things up to the frequently asked question “How often should I be posting?”, to what you can share, who to be following, and how to make life easier!

The topics covered are:

  1. Social Media Overview – basic tips and tricks, why social media is fundamental and what your audience want from you!
  2. Twitter
  3. Facebook
  4. LinkedIn
  5. Instagram
  6. Videos – YouTube, Periscope, Instagram Stories, Snapchat and platforms such as Facebook live.
  7. *Bonus* – blogging for lawyers and law firms!

Each session includes a video, and some useful information to take away and action.

 

 

Why should I sign up?

It is only £30. For that £30 you get 6 video lessons and documents and resources, plus one bonus session! You also get to email me any of your key questions (and I will respond as always, to each and every single one of them).  The videos and resources you can use time and time again.

Sign up here and you will receive the videos starting on the 1st September 2017.

This will be available after 1st September for you to sign up any time but the price will be £70.  So purchase before 1st September and save yourself £40.

Don’t worry if you don’t have a PayPal account, just pay as a guest!

Featured | Roll on Friday

So today my inboxes on various social media platforms (as well as my whatsapp) have been flooded with people sending me screenshots showing a picture of me on a Roll on Friday article.

You may remember years and years ago that I wrote a few blog posts about Roll on Friday, and some interesting/funny articles that they had shared.

Well today, on Roll on Friday, they featured a story about a parent who has got pretty involved in her son’s legal education through her social media accounts.  The reason I am featured, is because this particular parent happened to contact me ages ago via social media to ask some questions.

Lots of people have trawled through her social media history to find some of these tweets and comments.  Some of the tweets I have seen today so far about this story have been pretty harsh, and whatever you make of this parent’s actions, I am sure she had a good reason to do so, and she clearly just wants to be involved in her son’s education (rightly or wrongly).

If you do want to read the article you can access it here.

As always, Roll on Friday published this article, and Legal Cheek followed suit.

What have you been up to on a not so sunny July Friday?

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:

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!
