Because this internet marketing effort will require ongoing attention in order to be successful, don’t hesitate to contact the professionals at Epic Web Results for help with social media marketing for your law firm.
Tip 1: Use professional photos of yourself and/or your firm.
Using professional pictures of yourself and/or your law firm can help your social media pages stand out from your competitors while establishing a “face” to the name or message you are sending the people who follow your account. Here, it’s usually better to use a professional photo of a person (rather than a firm’s building) because people will be more likely connect with a firm – and be more likely to remember that firm in the future – when there is a personal, welcoming visual image of you or another partner associated with that firm.
When you use personal professional photos and post in conversational language, people will be more likely to feel comfortable with you and ready to trust you with their important legal matters even if they have never met you or have not been referred to you by a loved one.
Tip 2: Include a short yet insightful bio about you and/or your firm.
A personalized professional photo can be the first step to connecting with internet users. To really draw people in, make sure to include a short, well-written bio of you and/or your firm on each of your social media pages. In this bio, briefly explain:
- Who you are
- Who you serve/represent
- Why you do this (e.g., your passion for justice, your dedication to helping injured people, etc.)
- How long you have been practicing this type of law (to establish your authority).
A short bio including these facts can go a long way to establishing your credibility as a legal professional and, in turn, keeping your audience attentive to your social media posts.
