Facebook Nation has more denizens than the USA, and the Twitterverse is not far behind. Does this matter to business attorneys? Well, if your practice has adopted other technological innovations in the communications arena – like e-mail and cell phones – then you won’t want to ignore the world of social media. Used properly, social media tools can enhance your marketing and communications efforts.
• Intelligent use of social media has become critically important for all professionals
• Engaged users of social media connect with each other
• Virtual connections yield real-world client and referral relationships
• Social media can be a key part of the marketing strategy for your practice
