We posted the other day about the advantages to new grads and solos of establishing a practice-related blog as an inexpensive way to promote yourself. Included in that post are numerous tips to help get you started. Over at Above the Law, a new and popular column devoted to small firm practice addresses a number of concerns expressed by those wading into the social media waters for the first time. Here they are:
- How to get established on Twitter.
- How to maintain a professional aura in your social media use.
- What about "billing" for time spent on social media? (short answer - you can't)
- Can you get sued for something you post (always a possibility but if you use commonsense you should be able to avoid it)
- What if you offend someone? (sometimes it happens, but if you use commonsense, you should be able to avoid it)
- Do I really need a social media presence if I'm already in the Yellow Pages and Martindale-Hubbell? (yes).
