Share your content on social networks
Social networks can be a great medium to push your content through. Using both organic and paid social promotion can give your content marketing the awareness it needs in order to establish your law firm as an authority in its field. At Hit Search, we’ve found advertising through Facebook Audiences has returned some impressive results for our clients.
Focus on your firm’s niche
Even if you’re firm tackles all sorts of legal issues, there must be a main niche that’s driving the majority of your revenue? Try and focus your content marketing around a particular niche, at least on a campaign basis. This way all your content marketing will support that one topic, a scatter-gun approach to your content marketing, will never capture the eye of your market, instead it’ll just dilute your campaign, confusing your readers so your firm’s name will just get lost amongst the competition.
