Set your goals. Boost your bottom line.
Too many lawyers share mixed experiences with digital marketing. More often than not, we think it’s due to lack of industry knowledge and experience.
In short, it’s about understanding not only your own needs and goals as a lawyer, but also understanding legal consumers and their needs, behaviors, and more. From search engine optimization and paid search to content marketing and social media, our resources on these topics have you covered.
Case studies are a great resource for solo attorneys because they provide a detailed analysis of how different strategies have been applied in actual practices. Gain valuable insights about how to better approach your management style and business plan.
Plus, learn from others’ successes and failures from a broad range of practice types.
Webcasts are an effective way to learn about running your own firm because they provide you with real-time access to experts in the field. They’re often interactive and allow you to ask questions and receive direct feedback from an expert.
