Top Five Reasons Lawyers Should Blog


Published on

These slides accompany LexBlog's recorded webinar, available at

The way you used to build your business simply doesn't work anymore. Referrals, local meetings and lunches won't get you where you need to go. The marketplace is too crowded and your potential clients are too discerning and time constrained.

In this free webinar licensed attorney, Kevin McKeown will walk through how blogging can create the visibility online that today's lawyers need. Law firm CMO Eric Fletcher will offer additional insight into how building an online network to demonstrate subject matter expertise will take lawyers and firms to the next level.

After you've reviewed the slides and watched our webinar recording, please provide us with some quick feedback so we can improve future LexBlog client webinars. Survey Link:
