In this episode Jim and Tyson discuss how to get attention from the marketplace; how to differentiate yourself and let people know that you are not a typical lawyer.
Focus on the customer; what do they want? What does the client want from us?
It’s not only just about pounding your chest and showing in your website all the awards and diplomas you have. Create content, answer questions.
The more competitive your legal area is, the more important it is to have a greater quantity and quality of content (It doesn’t cost anything!). A good way to create content is to write down the questions people make you and answer them to all the ones having that same question.
You can do videos, podcasts, or even keep it simple and just do a blog. Just keep track of your topics and put a simple system in place.
