Week of December 8, 2014 on ILNToday – A Roundup!

This week’s radio silence has been brought to you by the worst head cold I’ve had in years. I actually took a couple of days off of work, which, for those who know me well, will come as a big surprise.

You are in for a treat today, while I’m away at the ILN’s Regional Meeting of the Americas – we have a very special guest post! We’re welcoming Joanne Thorud, the Director of Marketing for the ILN’s Boston member, Davis, Malm & D’Agostine. She’s talking about one of my favorite subjects – client service – and shares with us an excellent post on why communication is so important in keeping clients happy.

Last week, I attended the Legal Marketing Association New England’s annual regional conference in Boston. The theme of this year’s conference was Simplify to Maximize. There were a dozen programs and over 30 speakers who presented topics focused on cutting through clutter and static and delivering clear and concise messages.

It is not a new or revolutionary concept, but it is extremely relevant, especially in today’s legal climate.
