Attorney Social Media Tips from YouTube:
ignite.avvo.com - If you've decided to join the Twittersphere and launch a handle for personal use, or to promote your firm, this week's Fireside Chat with Megan Olendorf provides the key steps lawyers should take to get started. Megan provides basic tips on setting up your account and handle, as well as building your Twitter network through finding and following other community members. Megan also addresses several key questions we get from attorneys, including "Why is Twitter valuable to my business?" and "Will Twitter bring me more clients?" While it's unlikely that a potential client will search for, or find you through Twitter, there is the potential to receive referrals through the connections you make with other attorneys via Twitter. One of the main benefits of Twitter is the ability to make connections and maintain relationships that just wouldn't be possible in an offline world. In addition, Twitter allows you to demonstrate your expertise and thought leadership, which can absolutely help a potential client make a decision when they're researching possible attorneys online.
