Social media is increasingly recognized as an acceptable component of your marketing strategy in a professional context. The American Bar Association reports that ninety six (96) percent of lawyers are using LinkedIn and thirty eight (38) percent of lawyers are using Facebook for career development and networking.

And best of all, it can all happen amazingly close to real time with social media apps for a range of devices, including iPad of course.

by Heather Hale

As primary decision maker of any business, particularly a law firm, and especially a solo practice, my job is made significantly easier when someone else narrows down the choices for me.

The good news for you is that you have me. Continue reading
