Why Your Attorney Video Stats Won’t Help You With Your Lawyer Video Marketing

Many video production companies hype the fact that they will give you lots of cool graphs and stats about your video views. They will tell you how you can login to a secret website to learn about your Google analytics and how beautiful your graphs are. I'm going to tell you right now that the video statistics you get either from a website or from your video company are 99.9% meaningless. Continue reading

Should You Use Your Attorney Video as a PR News Release?

Let's say you are at a dinner party and you meet someone new for the very first time. You innocuously ask them what they do for a living and they proceed to spend the next 30 minutes telling you all about themselves. They tell you how great they are.

Have You Ever Shot Attorney Video Outdoors at Night? I Have and Let Me Tell You About It…

The first video I shot was relatively well lit. By the time I was on my third video, I realized I needed an external light source and ran to grab my lights. Continue reading

Do Your Viewers Thank You For Your Great Attorney Video Content?

As I have repeatedly said, if the company you hire to create your content does not understand who your ideal clients are and what their legal problems are, how can they possibly help you create content that will get a viewer interested to watch what you have to say, compel them to watch till the end and then call you up and say, “Thank you so much for the great information you provided.” Continue reading

Should You Post Your Attorney Videos on “Other” Video Sharing Sites Besides YouTube?

I tend to focus more on just three or four video sharing sites. The first and most important one is YouTube. The other two or three I will leave to your imagination for now.

Testimonials

Gerry, I've read your book and watched at least 100 of your videos, and follow your blog, so "I feel like I know you already!".

I wanted to introduce myself, I work for an attorney, David Aylor, in the Charleston, SC area. I do all his in house marketing, and most recently have focused on video marketing, using your approach.

We started exploring the strategy last July, started filming by September, and published the first video to YouTube Nov. 1. I am now publishing 2 videos per week and the response had been great.

I want to share with you how we have be utilizing the material on Facebook, to build a community of "friends" of the law firm. These are previous clients, referral sources, friends of the staff, other attorneys, new media (radio, TV, and print) as well as other prominent folks in the community.

I really was against the idea of Facebook marketing at first (because I think there's alot of hacks and snake oil salesmen in the "social media/SEO marketing" world). But I was very wrong, the content we are creating is being liked, shared, and commented on, and Facebook's strong community platform (and it's EdgeRank algorithm) is giving us a great way to keep our "inner circle" close to the office, and relevant in the minds of them and their friends.

This was the first video we posted to Facebook-

The local NBC anchor actually saw it in his Facebook feed from a friend sharing it, and interviewed David Aylor for a 6 o'clock news story on Social Media and Privacy in the legal system. (you can see here if you'd like http://bit.ly/VyALj4)

I would love to show you more about how I'm strategizing these videos for YouTube use as well as Facebook now. I think there are definitely some areas of practice and law firms that it wouldn't work for, but I'm sure there are a bunch that would benefit from it.

Thanks for all you do, and I hope I get the pleasure of meeting you soon!
