The Problem – No Targeted Strategy

Firms often mistakenly:

  • Post random news and links without context – lacks value.
  • Overly share content from other sites vs original perspectives from their attorneys.
  • Focus too much on firm activities vs useful info for social followers.
  • Fail to promote content or run ads to expand reach beyond existing followers.
  • Do not target content and engagement by ideal avatars and buyer types.
  • Neglect encouraging conversions with offers and lead gen forms.
  • Lack integration between social media and website/blog content.
  • Do not track ROI – conversions driven by social channels.

This scattered approach erroneously expects organic reach alone will generate leads. Targeted, promoted content aligned to each platform’s audience wins.
