Thinking About Starting Your Own Podcast?
As you listen to more legal podcasts, you may start to think about hosting one of your own. Starting a legal podcast can be a great way for lawyers to reach their target clients.
There are several benefits to starting your own personal injury podcast, such as:
- Sharing your thought leadership
- Building trust with referral partners
- Attracting new staff or attorneys to your firm
You can also repurpose podcast content for other marketing channels. For example, you can use clips from your show to create demand for your services on social media.
As you can see from the list above, many PI podcasts are geared toward other attorneys. That’s great if your goal is to build your profile and trust with peers. Many attorneys can leverage that into a solid referral network.
If your goal is to reach personal injury clients, a podcast may not be the top priority for your attorney marketing plan. Setting a firm foundation with content marketing efforts like SEO may be a better place to start.
