Presentation: The Business of Blogging (for Lawyers)
Presented by: Gene Quinn, Patent Attorney and Founder, IPWatchdog.com
One of the primary reasons for undertaking a blog is to engage in business development of one kind or another. People who will find you online are searching for answers. If you want to capitalize on this opportunity it will be necessary to provide intelligent, insightful information that the reader did not possess prior to visiting your website. Over time your job will be to provide lots of that information that ties together little by little to demonstrate that you have a deep level of understanding. The lesson is simple: It is far better for a prospective client or customer to come to the understanding that you know what you are talking about for themselves than it is for you to tell them you know what you are talking about directly. It should go without saying, that the plan requires that you are read by others, which means you absolutely, positively cannot write like a lawyer!
