Lawyer Video Marketing: Are Your Videos Related?

Not in the incestuous way, but are they related in terms of the content? At the end of your YouTube video, you are presented with a 12 panel grid. The videos that show up are, according to YouTube, somehow related to the content of the video that you just watched. Continue reading

You think I'm joking right? I'm not.

Take Charge Using a Key Negotiating Tip From a 9-Year-Old

You are an experienced attorney and you scoff at the idea that you could learn anything from a nine-year-old. You are skeptical. Yet, you have read the title and the first line of this post. That's a good start. There many lawyers who are afraid to take the bull by the horns for fear of change and fear of the unexpected.

I decided to create a whole video library to help educate consumers in my market about auto accidents and other injury claims, and also to help supplement other advertising. I chose not to do this on my own because I do not have the time to sit down and put all this together and figure it all out. And I wanted sort of a turnkey solution. I definitely recommend Gerry.
