Why Create Educational Video to Market Your Law Firm?

Video allows a viewer the ability to see us, hear us and get to know us before they ever meet us. Being a great lawyer is only one key component to success. Learning how to market your law firm using video is the next key. You got paid to practice law. You were helping people solve their legal problems.

Most lawyers coming out of law school have no idea how to make it rain. Continue reading

“What Does it Cost To Participate in Your Attorney Video Marketing Programs?” Asked the Attorney

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.

You know, you have to go to a studio somewhere, it’s on site. And I would definitely – the ease of this – I would definitely recommend it to any colleague or friend.
