Ep. 165 – The Care and Feeding of Social Media for Attorneys – with Megan Zavieh & Erin Gerstenzang

Today we’re joined by a familiar face and a new face, Erin Gerstenzang and Megan Zavieh, who recently delivered a fabulous presentation at the ABA techshow titled “Care and Feeding of Social Media: Enhancing Your Presence Online.”

 

So, this episode is about why attorneys should be using social media – because it is an essential tool for communication with clients and potential clients – and how attorneys can do this more effectively and efficiently. We discuss overcoming the reluctance to join social media, how you can make the process of maintaining your online presence easier, the tools that will help you stay on top of using multiple platforms, and the evolving rules covering lawyers’ use of social media.

About the author, Neil Tyra

All through his legal career, Neil has been a pioneer in the use of leveraging technology to allow for the growth and prosperity of his law firm while providing outstanding client service. Recognition of his expertise and leadership in the legal technology space culminated in his creation of the popular legal podcast “The Law Entrepreneur”.

The podcast addresses the statement “What They Didn’t Teach Us about Running a Business in Law School”. It focuses on what it takes to start and run a solo or small firm law practice. Mostly the podcast includes interviews with successful solos and small firms to learn what they are doing right, what they have done wrong, what they wish they would have done differently. In addition, Neil interviews other entrepreneurs and business owners whose skill sets might be of interest to new law firm owners. Lastly, he loves to have what he calles “gadget folks” - those who have a product or service to sell that might help solo attorneys - on the show.
