Social media and the tremendous potential for lawyers: Stephen and Gavin interviewed for Thomson Reuters' LegalPD

Ben_Clayton_Social_Media_Business_Opportunities_for_LawyersEvery week, more law firms and lawyers use social media to develop their business. For those solicitors looking to learn more about the benefits and best practices of social media, Sweet and Maxwell (Thomson Reuters) interviewed Stephen, I and a few other lawyers and social media enthusiasts for their LegalPD.com website (see the screenshots in this post and visit the links below to watch the video).

Stephen_Moore_Social_Media_For_Solicitors_-_Business_GenerationAmong those interviewed include legal blogging ('blawging') champions Adam Wagner (barrister) and Brian Inkster (solicitor), IP lawyer Shireen Smith, employment lawyer and blogger/blawger Michael Scutt, corporate lawyer and social media expert Jonathan Lea and various others.

Each of the participants, including Stephen and I, gave an overview of some of the main benefits of social media for law firms and lawyers - Gavin_Ward_Lawyers__Law_Firms_Social_Media_Best_Practicesparticularly what we have got out of it through our own experience. 

This included discussion of the following:

  • marketing yourself and your practice online through the best (and free!) social media networks including LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+ and blogs;
  • finding and retaining clients;
  • staying up-to-date with the latest industry news and developments by listening to the most relevant people, posts and feeds;
  • Adam_Wagner_Social_Media_for_Legal_Professionalsnetworking and developing relationships with relevant people; and
  • improving your online visibility.

The discussions also took a look at the 'how to' guides of effective social media use including the following:

  • the best social media platforms for lawyers and tips for getting started and getting into them more effectively and efficiently;
