JDB 078: Big Changes at JDBlogger!

JDBlogger Tools

The JDBlogger podcast launched on December 5, 2012 with the goal of providing solo attorneys with valuable information on how to market a law practice without paying thousands of dollars each month to the SEO salesmen.  With a goal of taking things to the next level I am now excited to announce that I will be providing new great written content each week from some of the top industry experts.

Every Wednesday a new article will be posted on the JDBlogger.com website from lawyer marketing experts like Gerry Oginksi (Lawyers’ Video Studio), Luke Ciciliano (SEO for Lawyers), Michael Whelan (Lunch with Lawyers Podcast), Jacob Sapochnick (Enchanting Lawyer Podcast), Andy Cabasso (Jurispage), Adrian Lurssen (Jdsupra), and John Fisher (author of The Power of a System).

These aren’t just blog posts – these are actionable go-to resources for entrepreneur attorneys looking to make the most of the time they spend marketing their law practice.

I already have the first three months booked, but if you would like to submit an article to published on JDBlogger please shoot me an email at [email protected] .

Announcing JDBlogger Tools – Take Your Law Practice to the Next Level in 2016

Are you ready to take the your law firm marketing to the next level in 2016?  I am proud to announce a new premium content marketing course and community dedicated exclusively to solo and small firm lawyers – JDBlogger Tools.

JDBlogger Tools will launch in early 2016 and be made of the following three areas:

Advanced Content Marketing

If you are a regular listener to the podcast you likely get why you should do content marketing but most people struggle in executing a content marketing strategy.  You don’t need get bogged down in the details and tech.

In this part of the course you will learn how to create valuable written content, including blogging and ebooks.

The course will also cover video creation, including equipment, lighting, camera settings, editing, and publishing to YouTube and Vimeo.

Ever thought of starting a podcast?  The course will walk you through step by step how to set up and launch your own podcast.

Social media – can you really get clients with social media?  The answer is yes and in this part of the course I will show you how.

JDBlogger Community

A bonus of the course will be your membership in the JDBlogger community which will include a private Facebook group.  No matter where you live or what area you practice the challenges of marketing a solo practice are similar.  Membership in the JDBlogger community will grant you exclusive access to other attorneys going through the same daily battles you are and allow you to share what has worked for you (and what hasn’t).

Strategy Sessions with John

You will also get one-on-one strategy sessions with John Skiba to discuss your challenges and create a game plan on how to move your practice forward using advanced content marketing strategies that will benefit you for years to come.

The creation of JDBlogger Tools has been a long time coming and I am excited to share it with you and work with you to help you grow your practice and take everything to the next level.

Because the JDBlogger Tools is focused on building a community and one-on-one instruction (and because I am still a practicing attorney:) it is going to be necessary to limit the number of people who can participate.

I anticipate launching this course in mid – January 2016, just in time to kick off the new year.

Be Part of the First Group to Be Notified!

If you would like to receive the absolute first notice when the course is ready to launch I invite you to sign up by going to JDBlogger Tools (www.jdblogger.com/tools)

OR by texting the word JDBLOGGER to 44222.

I look forward to working with you all in the new year and am excited with what this group will be able to accomplish!

    Listened to your podcast this am. I ordered Content Inc on your recommendation and listened to it last week. If you have not already interviewed Joe, I would like you to inquire how a local lawyer can find his/her “tilt”. I can understand this when you have productivity site or content site but I do not see how it translates to an individual law office. I went on google trends and buzzsumo and couldn’t see anything for my practice area of personal injury and insurance disputes.

      Hi Guy:

      Thanks for the comment. I haven’t interviewed Joe yet so I will be sure to bring up your question. As I listened to his book I had the same thoughts when it came to the “tilt” and legal services. When I look at my practice and my “tilt” I have looked to a couple of things that can help me stand out. First, I looked to narrow my niche. Instead of representing consumers in everything from bankruptcy to lemon laws I narrowed it to bankruptcy and debt buyer defense cases. Next, I looked at how my competitors were marketing themselves and found that if I gave away helpful information on different platforms (blog, YouTube, podcast) that I could reach people that I might not otherwise. So basically I boiled my “tilt” down to what subset(s) of the law do I focus on and my willingness to share legal information with people regardless of whether they are my client.

      Thanks for the question. It will be one of the areas I want to spend a lot of time on with Joe.
