Starting Your Solo Practice: Marketing 101 (01/18/22)
Solo and small firm practices provide unique benefits to clients, but the challenge is to get noticed and hired in today’s highly competitive legal marketplace. So how can someone who is starting a practice or firm create and implement a Marketing strategy that will raise their profile and the profile of their firm?
This Marketing 101 webinar will start by defining and differentiating marketing, business development and client service—and identifying the interrelationships between these three areas of practice development. From there, it will outline the basic elements of a Marketing program, and drill-down into effective and efficient strategies and tactics that work. Finally, since no one-size-fits-all, the discussion will center on how you can select from among the tools in the Marketing toolbox to customize the right approach for your needs.
