[Video & Slides] Best Practices for Client Alerts

by Good2bSocial • June 19th, 2018 • Legal Marketing | Blog

Most law firms send weekly or monthly client alerts to their clients (and sometimes prospects) in order to demonstrate the thought leadership of their lawyers and to provide the latest updates on legal issues.

While client alerts are a common marketing and business development tactic employed by law firms, it is not entirely clear what the impact of client alerts is and how to make client alerts an effective tool in the legal marketer’s tool belt.

In this webinar, our all-star team of legal marketing leaders share best practices on client alerts and how to ensure that they are an effective client retention and business development method.

  • The value of client alerts and how they help maintain relationships with existing clients, influencers, the media, and prospects
  • How to identify your audience and further segment lists to deliver the right alerts to the right people
  • The best length and style for client alerts and when to use visuals
  • How you can use client alerts to differentiate your law firm from other firms
