Stop Talking About Shooting Attorney Video and Just Do It!

stoptalkingI know attorneys who have been thinking about creating great educational attorney video for years. They think about it. They contemplated doing it. They daven over it. (That means a think about it a lot and pray over it.)

The problem with many of these attorneys is that they don’t take action. Something always gets in the way. Something more important and pressing always takes over. That’s okay, I understand where you’re coming from. I’ve been there myself.

Case files, client emergencies, deadlines and getting a motion out and responding to motions. Prepping for trial. Who has time for marketing and creating attorney video?

The reality is that unless you take action now and begin to create great educational video to market yourself you will be invisible to the second largest search engine in the world.


That means you do not exist.

Imagine if you were invisible to the first largest search engine in the world, Google. Nobody would be able to find you online. Nobody who is searching for an attorney with your experience would ever be able to find you unless they had the direct URL to your website.

Well, guess what? If you have not yet started creating attorney video, you are, for all practical purposes, invisible to the second-largest search engine world… YouTube.

I know why you haven’t created video yet. Let me share with you some of the reasons and ask you whether any of these reasons resonate with you.

  1. You are fearful of how you will appear on video
  2. You’re worried how you’ll sound
  3. You’re worried what others will think of you
  4. You don’t know what to say
  5. You don’t know what equipment to use to create your video
  6. You don’t want to become a video producer
  7. You don’t want to spend time, energy and resources to create something that you know nothing about
  8. You don’t know if this is going to help your bottom line
  9. You like doing things the way they are.
  10. You don’t know how to present your material in an engaging and interesting way

I know exactly how you feel. I was in your shoes when I first started creating video in 2006. In fact, when I first started creating video there were no other attorneys in the country who were creating educational video to teach their ideal clients and consumers.

I have been told that I am the ‘father’ of creating education-based video for lawyers. Others have called me a pioneer. That’s pretty cool.

More importantly, the fears you have today about creating lawyer video are valid. Let me say that again. Your fears are valid.

However, as with all fears you must take steps and action in order to get over those fears. Doing so, you will quickly realize that most of those fears are totally unfounded. However, if your fear is paralyzing you from taking action, there is nothing I or anybody else can do to help you overcome those fears.

As an experienced trial lawyer who tries cases here in New York and as the founder of the Lawyers Video Studio, my goal is to help you overcome your fears and help you to package your material in a compelling and interesting manner that will have your ideal clients and consumers wanting more of your information.

Gerry, We were so happy to finally meet you. We thought that we knew a thing or two about using video in our law practice until we discovered you.
You are the man. Meeting you last week prompted us to completely rethink our video strategy AND we decided that we weren’t doing nearly enough. You light a fire under our butts!
We are now back in Seattle and refocusing and redoubling our video marketing efforts! Thanks Gerry!
