Law firms and internal marketing departments are grappling with the lightning speed at which social media marketing is moving. Chances are prospective clients are already looking for you on LinkedIn, or for your firm on Facebook, before they visit your firm website. This half day course will provide your associates, partners and support staff with the basic skills necessary to ensure they use social media responsibly and profitably.
This program was designed by our very own former lawyer turned social media expert, Mike Rabinovici, LL.B., and the internal AR Communications team. For more information, please visit Mike’s LinkedIn profile at http://ca.linkedin.com/in/mikerabinovici or see one of his presentations at http://slidesha.re/social-media-for-lawfirms.
What: This half-day course offers a basic introduction to the primary elements of social media including: LinkedIn, Facebook, Social Media policies and more. Advanced courses focusing on each individual element are also available. It covers not only the marketing opportunities social media offers but also the very fine line separating an employee’s use of the medium for business rather than pleasure.
Why: The potential benefits of social media are enormous, as are the potential pitfalls. Any business where both management and employees have a basic understanding of social media will be positioned to take advantage of the tremendous upside of social media networks and tools, while minimizing the downside. A basic social media skill set is no longer a luxury, but a mission-critical necessity.
Where: In-house at your offices or online (requires internet access)
How long: This is a half-day course from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm with a 20 minute break halfway through
Cost: $249 online and $329 in-house (internet access and a PC required)
