I’ve created a video lesson on how to use Scribd.com, a document sharing site. Scribd enables users to easily upload and share documents. As with other social media sites you can follow people and they can follow you.
Share your knowledge with clients and potential clients
Document sharing, when used appropriately, can be a great way to get your name out on the web. Every time you can provide unique and useful content to potential clients, it is a good idea to do so. It will improve your search engine ranking and provide an opportunity for people to get to know you and evaluate your skills as an attorney.
I suggest sharing powerpoint presentations from when you speak, answers to common questions in your area of practice, and similar types of documents. With appropriate tagging of the document, along with your own efforts to share what you upload, people can find you when searching the web for information relevant to their legal needs. Hopefully, after people read what you have shared, they will pick up the phone or email you for more information about hiring you as an attorney.
