Emoji Marketing: Are We Speaking the Same Language?

Apple-Emoji-KeyboardI’m (hopefully) rounding up a rather intense fall full of travel, with a trip to Boston for the Legal Marketing Association’s Northeast Conference, where I’m speaking on Content Marketing (my favorite subject!). We had two guest posts last week, and you’re lucky to be getting a republished post this week. This article originally appeared on Sprout Social‘s blog.  They are talking about something that’s a little out of our comfort zone here in legal – emoji marketing. Molly Porter of Seyfarth Shaw spoke about this at the LMA Technology Conference recently, so it’s not altogether foreign in legal, and worth paying attention to.  See how Sprout Social talks about other companies using emoji marketing as well!

Use Social Media to Ignite Your Content Marketing

iStock_000021185501SmallIt’s no secret that I love social media – I was an early adopter, and I still regularly engage on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. And it’s even less of a secret that I love content marketing, if 9 months’ worth of Two for Tuesdays’ posts have given you any indication.

The connection between the two is a fairly clear one – social media provides an excellent array of distribution channels for you to deliver your content to your intended audiences. That’s a lot of marketing-speak, I know, but basically, all I’m saying is that if you want to get the words, thoughts, and ideas that showcase what a smart, talented and passionate lawyer or legal professional you are in front of the people that matter to you, an important way to make that happen is by being in the same places they are.
