Rainmaking Recommendation from Jaimie Field: It’s Not What You Know

I’ve been traveling on an 11-day trip around the world, currently in the Philippines for our 2013 Asia Pacific Regional Meeting. So I’m glad to be able to share Jaimie Field‘s recommendation this week while I’m on the road!


It’s not what you know.

It’s not who you know.

It’s about who knows what you know.

How are you making sure that the public knows about what you know?

You have to proactively tell the public what you know. Not by shouting from the rooftops but by intelligently, systematically and consistently showing others how you can solve their legal problems.

There are so many marketing tactics which you can use to showcase your knowledge. For example:

  • Networking
  • Social Media
  • Blogging
  • Public Relations
  • Seminars
  • Social Events hosted by your firm
  • Writing Articles

And this is only a partial list of how you can showcase your knowledge and expertise as an attorney.

But if all you are doing is grinding out work from behind a computer, you are an anonymous figure and no one will really know what you do. (In fact, others may take credit for your work.)

So carve out some time from your week, EVERY WEEK, to do something that will get your name and your knowledge out in the public eye.
