Raleigh, N.C. (Vocus/PRWEB) March 17, 2011
Consultwebs.com, a leading Web marketing consulting company for lawyers and law firms, has started a new LinkedIn Lawyer Social Media Listserv to help law firms leverage their social media presence.
"We want to help attorneys and law firms gain the fullest advantage of this exploding technology’s potential," says Consultwebs.com CEO Dale Tincher. "Social media provides law firms with an amazing opportunity to locate and communicate with potential clients in need of their legal services."
The Law Web Social Media listserv provides a forum for legal experts and lawyer marketers to provide suggestions, tips and techniques that will help law firms maximize the potential of this powerful medium, Tincher said.
Social media networking, which includes the popular sites Facebook and Twitter, is among the fast growing segments of the Internet. Facebook has more than 500 million members, and 50 percent of all Facebook users log in every day. Twitter offers the ability to network and quickly share tips, techniques and information.
LinkedIn, another popular Social Media site, is reportedly the most popular business social networking site used by attorneys. LinkedIn has proved useful for developing lawyer referral relationships, hiring employees, and meeting other lawyers and prospective clients who may not be available through other sources, according to Consultwebs.com President Lisa Vaughn.
Social Media platforms offer impressive design and programming capabilities, Vaughn notes. As examples, Vaughn points to Munley, Munley & Cartwright’s Facebook page, as well as Consultwebs’ Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn sites.
"We have encouraged our law firm clients to obtain a LinkedIn presence, and we have helped them set up custom pages," Vaughn said. "It's one more tool we believe law firms should be using to complement their other online and Web marketing campaigns."
