Lead Generation – Using LinkedIn Search

  • Profile these individuals
  • Use shared connections to reach out.
  • Add value, or request help.
  • Connect, build relationships on shared experience.
  • Plan to set up a 1-2-1 call in 2-3 weeks
  • Stay in touch – follow through.
  • Rinse and repeat.

Lead Generation – Using Groups / Q&A
  • Join as many of the “right” groups as possible - LinkedIn maxes you out at 50.
  • Contribute quality posts and answers that advance the discussion, demonstrate thought leadership and start an open dialog, not a monologue.
  • Be personal and personable.
  • Follow your company guidelines and consider disclaimers so as not to create an attorney client relationship.
  • Immediately “connect” with quality people who respond in the group. Use the momentum of the discussion to follow through.
  • Do not start your own group without the approval of the CMO - Manage not own
guideline questions
Guideline Questions
  • Who officially speaks for the firm?
  • Who owns the information in the profile? The attorney or the firm? Can the firm request the removal or editing of inaccurate, confidential or unpalatable information in an employee account?
  • Can the firm take over any groups or twitter accounts associated with the employee or partner (but work-related)?
  • Who owns the IP in any comments made by the attorney? The attorney or the firm?
  • Does publishing a comment expose the firm to liability? Is it considered legal advice? Do your profiles require a disclaimer?
