Are you an attorney who wants to get into the social media space? In this podcast episode, Jim and Tyson discuss the importance of creating engaging and entertaining content for law firm videos and social media. Creating social media content is a difficult skill to master. It takes time and effort to not only understand how certain apps work but also what type of content is going to reel people in. Social media can be used to attract clients, especially those of a younger demographic. Tyson and Jim explore the idea of creating entertaining videos and if it will lead to more viewers and clients. One thing to consider is creating TikTok content that is a mix of fun and legal advice. The fun aspect allows viewers to get to know you as a person and then the legal advice will showcase the expertise.Tyson and Jim talk about how viewers do not like the “ask” in social media content. The point of social media is to attract people to view your content and subscribe. The last thing people want is to have to go the extra mile for a creator all the time if they are asking their audience to do something. Sprinkling in the “selling” is a good way to get your message across. Giving away your best tips and advice will get people to listen. It is a risk because nobody wants to give everything away for nothing in return, but Tyson and Jim promise it is the best way to get the views without throwing things in people's faces.When creating content on apps like Tiktok, it is important to include all the necessary information without taking too much time. Make sure to address the question, provide a solution and have a call to action. It is really important to ensure videos are kept short. No one is going to listen to a video if it is too long because you lose the viewer if you do not get the point.To be successful on social media, it is important to understand the rhythm of the platform. What are people talking about? What are the trends to know and follow? Get to know your audience and understand what they want to see and what questions they need answered. As attorneys, find out what legal advice people want to know. Is it about immigration, privacy, criminal or copyright? From here, you can create content in a way that will help you attain more clients.Take a listen!2:09 The significance of creating engaging and interesting videos5:42 Balance entertaining content with informative legal content10:04 Giving away valuable content to attract clients18:35 The need for law firm videos and social media content to be short19:56 Advice on how to make TikTok videos interesting by following trendsJim's Hack: Read the book $100M Leads: How to Get Strangers to Want to Buy Your Stuff Alex Hormozi Tyson's Tip: Get your personal life organized through a Kanban board.

There's a common misconception circulating about solopreneurs... The idea that solopreneurs can go it alone without any assistance or resources is entirely untrue. Take it from me. I've had to shift this perspective for many of my students. While embarking on the solopreneur journey can be an incredible experience, there are certain essentials needed to excel in this game. With a solid foundation as a solopreneur, scaling becomes much more achievable, and you can finally reach those revenue goals you've always aspired to achieve. You might even find yourself working just 5 hours a week, like me (if that's your choice), and crafting a fulfilling life. However, without building this foundation, you'll remain one step away from that breakthrough, unsure of why you haven't reached it yet. That's why I've dedicated today's podcast episode to the three crucial elements every solopreneur requires. Trust me, mastering these three aspects will revolutionize your entrepreneurial journey. So, if you're determined to navigate your solopreneurial path the right way, be sure to tune in to this episode. In today's episode you'll learn: -Why having a community is a great way to stay motivated. -How to use digital tools to save you time, energy and money. -My A.C.E formula for supercharging your business. -And much, much more. Enjoy!
Sometimes, it's an entrepreneur's ability to neutralize their weaknesses that paves the way to their success. By prioritizing important tasks and removing themselves from activities they aren't skilled at or simply don't like, entrepreneurs can focus their talents on areas of their business where they can make a measured difference. Implementing systems like these helped Lauren Tickner turn her side hustle as a fitness coach into a 7-figure online business by the age of 21. But Lauren didn't stop there. She realized that the systems she used to grow her fitness coaching business could be applied to all industries. This revelation inspired her to create Impact School, a 7-figure coaching company that helps digital entrepreneurs implement systems that allow them to free up valuable time and scale their businesses to new heights. In this episode, Lauren joins us to discuss the advantages of systematization, the steps business owners should take to systematize their business, and how implementing systems has helped her own business thrive. According to Lauren, “As a business owner, you have to fill your weaknesses. I became so systems oriented through my own lack of organization. A big lesson for me was hiring someone who was my opposite, who could ensure that those systems were set up. But only by being honest about my weaknesses was I able to find the right person.” Lauren also sheds some light on the bad industry advice that entrepreneurs should avoid, how she diversifies her income streams without succumbing to shiny object syndrome, and some of the biggest challenges she faced when building and scaling Impact School. Topics Discussed in This Episode: How Lauren helps people detach their personal brand from their business (05:06) Lauren walks us through her origin story as an entrepreneur (07:55) Hiring people who compliment your weaknesses (13:48) How systemization can benefit entrepreneurs (15:10) The right time to implement systemization in your business's lifecycle (18:03) The V.I.L.E. system Lauren uses to prioritize tasks (24:33) The bad advice Lauren has heard floating around the industry (29:41) How Lauren plans to diversify her income streams moving forward (39:35) How Lauren avoids shiny object syndrome when acquiring businesses (44:05) Why Lauren decided to exclude investors from her own business (50:35) Mentions: Empire Flippers Podcast Empire Flippers Marketplace Schedule a call with our expert sales advisors Impact School Notion Sit back, grab a coffee, and learn how systems can help you scale your business without losing your freedom.

Does your firm need better Wi-Fi? Do you struggle to have good connectivity during meetings? This episode features Tyson who discusses tech tips to improve Wi-Fi speeds for law practices. Regardless of the type of industry you are in, reliable Wi-Fi is a necessity, especially in this day and age. It is one of the only ways we are able to stay connected and know what is happening around us. Tyson talks about the need to understand what you are paying for. He suggests people google an “internet speed test” to check how fast the internet is and to test it all around the office. If the speed and the price don't match, it means it is time to make some changes.Tyson provides some tips to use to solve connectivity and speed issues. One tip is to simply reboot your router, which involves unplugging the router for 30 seconds, pressing the power button and plugging it back in. This can reset your internet and bring it back to a good speed. Another tip is upgrading your router. Older routers are not able to keep up with the newer demands of Wi-Fi and can really slow everything down. Disconnecting multiple devices is something that can also speed up your Wi-Fi. Most times, people have their phones, laptops and TVs connected to the Wi-Fi which can really slow it down. Encourage people in the office to disconnect devices that they do not need.Where your router is located in the office can really determine how strong the connection and speed is. If your Wi-Fi is slow, consider moving the router to a more central position. This could be a boardroom or office in the middle of the space. What this does is clear the path and not allow the connection to hit walls or barriers.Take a listen!00:24 How Wi-Fi speeds affect law practices2:33 How to test your internet speeds using Google's internet speed test4:29 Tips for improving Wi-Fi speeds
Do you need some help in changing habits to reduce stress? In this episode, Tyson discusses the importance of stress reduction and shares practical tips for managing stress in the legal profession and as a business owner.Tyson talks about the various ways to reduce stress as well as some things he has implemented. One of his tips to reducing stress is the method of box breathing. Box breathing involves inhaling for 4 seconds, holding your breath for 4 seconds, exhaling for 4 seconds and then holding your breath once more for 4 seconds. What this does is help center yourself and reach a state of calm.Another tip is to turn off notifications. People are on their phones way too much and get distracted by all the apps. It can cause a lot of stress and many people can become addicted. Tyson suggests doing this as it allows you to control the flood of information that gets to you. You can control the amount and when you absorb it.One final tip is to schedule your workouts. Realistically, if you do not schedule it, it's not going to happen. Scheduling it allows you to proactively plan and stay accountable to yourself. If you decide one day you are not in the mood to workout, schedule that time frame for a walk around the neighborhood or around the office.Take a listen to learn more tips on how to reduce stress!2:04 The technique of box breathing for stress reduction4:47 Have you turned off notifications to reduce stress?5:35 The importance of scheduling workouts
In this episode of the Thoughtful Entrepreneur, your host Josh Elledge speaks with Business Coach and Mentor, Jonny Cooper.Jonny's unique perspective on marketing, especially for online solopreneurs, is a breath of fresh air in an industry often seen as a necessary evil.The name "Jonny Hates Marketing" was born during a podcast interview where we discussed marketing practices that lacked respect. Johnny realized that many of his community members shared his sentiment, viewing marketing as a pain and a necessary evil. But Jonny's hatred for marketing isn't about the concept itself but how it's often executed.Jonny believes marketing should be about solving someone's problem rather than self-promotion. He quotes Seth Godin's definition of marketing as the generous act of solving someone's problem. This approach requires a deep understanding of your ideal client's challenges, hopes, and dreams.One of the critical points Johnny emphasizes is the importance of building communities and creating a sense of belonging for ideal clients. When people feel that people like them work with a particular service provider, they will likely trust and believe in that provider's products or services.Johnny works with coaches and therapists either starting their businesses or struggling to attract clients. He helps them clarify what they do in simple terms, identify their target audience, and develop their signature programs or offers.Key Points from the Episode:Jonny Cooper's work and why he hates marketingFocusing on working with online solopreneurs (coaches, therapists, consultants)How the name "Johnny Hates Marketing" came aboutMarketing as solving someone's problem rather than self-promotionImportance of understanding ideal clients and their challenges, hopes, and dreamsBuilding communities and creating a sense of belonging for ideal clientsHelping coaches and therapists clarify what they do, identify target audience, and develop signature programs/offersThree pillars of online therapy or coaching: what, who, and howRecommendations for taking action: reviewing language and copy, understanding the audience, sharing client transformationsAbout Jonny Cooper:Jonny Cooper is a British author, accomplished piano player, and international racing driver. He is best known as the founder of JonnyHatesMarketing, where he has significantly impacted business and coaching.Having successfully grown a business to 8-figures and subsequently exited, Jonny now dedicates his expertise to supporting coaches, trainers, therapists, and consultants in establishing their personal brands and thriving practices while achieving a life of abundance. His Client Attraction Blueprint program consistently attracts eager students and aligns with his goal of impacting the lives of 1,000,000 transformation professionals by 2025.Jonny's Three Pillars of Effortless Marketing blueprints universal success and growth, particularly benefiting aspiring coaches and therapists. He is passionate about elevating the average income within the profession.Additionally, Jonny is the driving force behind the influential Jonny Hates Marketing Facebook Group, which has generated over $1 million in sales despite his humorous insistence that he still hates marketing.Apply to be a Guest on The Thoughtful Entrepreneur: https://go.upmyinfluence.com/podcast-guestLinks Mentioned in this Episode:Want to learn more?

So this means I love plans, I love color coding, I am just a really extreme type A person… so incorporating fun and going off script can feel super awkward and stressful for me. My mindset coach is always reminding me that because I'm so logical I forget to believe in magic and so I thought this would be a great conversation for us to have as we wrap up Q3 and head into the last quarter of the year. Because when I do infuse fun and magic and playfulness, that's when I usually have the biggest breakthroughs and I hope that you can too. Here's the lowdown of what we're going to cover: - My personal experience with infusing more fun and magic into my business - Some journal prompts to help you start to implement this - A few tangible action steps for you to round this up (because I know you love those!) I truly believe in having a plan. And for you to be in business for the long-term you need to make sure that you love what you're doing and that you're loving the everyday activities you're doing too. For me, the long game means enjoying what you do, infusing fun and magic into your business, and also really thinking about how do you want to live first and then work your business around that. I would LOVE for you to share with me how can you incorporate more fun into the work you are doing - head over to Instagram, pop me a message and let me know. I think you'll be surprised with how motivating it can be to help you get the results that you have been dreaming of. xo Coach Holly For full show notes go to abranchofholly.com/podcast ...

Sam Walton loved this principle, and he used it as one of his top 10 concepts to drive Wal-Mart to meteoric heights. In 1988, I took a chance with this mindset, and it turned our 5.5-million-dollar company into a 12-million-dollar company in 2 years. Imagine exceeding corporate expectations by exchanging a company-centric formula, for a customer-centric recipe? Today we tell a pretty cool story (at least I think it is cool), about building a productive sandbox that is a polar opposite from the competition. This valuable lesson changed my standard business approach forever. Cheers!Support the show
Are you a practicing attorney who struggles with closing a deal? In this episode of the Maximum Lawyer podcast, Russ, a salesperson with a law degree, presents the five most important factors to closing a sale. He talks about the skills and qualities an attorney needs to close a sale with a client.Building Trust People will buy a product or become a client because of trust. Trust is essential in gaining the support and rapport of a client. Trust comes from credibility as well, in that you are good at what you do and you have the evidence to show for it. Now the question becomes: “How do you begin to build that relationship with a client?”5 Steps for Closing a SaleRuss talks about the five steps for closing a sale and how it can pertain to attorneys.The first step is engagement. As lawyers, engaging with the client at the beginning is easy because the client calls you for help. As long as you are quick with getting their needs met, you have them. Once this step is done, you need to focus on discovering the client. Get to know them and their needs. Spend time understanding their real needs and the needs they don't even know about. Walk the client through the process of how their needs will be both met and encourage them to take your recommendations. This leads to the third and most important step, which is building value. Clients are going to buy what you're selling, only if you convince them you or a product has value. To build value, communicate with them when you will be in touch, when you are available and all the information the client will need.As attorneys, gaining the trust of the client comes from passion. You need to be passionate about them and their story. Working in the legal field comes with countless stories about people who have gone through turmoil, trauma and heartache. Clients need to have attorneys that are just as passionate as they are to solve the issue. This passion is important in showing clients that you care and are with them until the end. It will stem from the discovery stage, where you ask questions to get a better understanding of what the client needs and why they came to your firm.Most of the time, potential clients don't know what they want because they are stressed out from their legal situation. As an attorney, you need to get them to commit to something. After showing them your value, have them commit to a phone call from you, a follow up call from your assistant, or signing the agreement. You need to give them a choice to make a decision. This is where you close the deal and retain the client.Take a listen to learn more!1:19 The importance of trust, credibility, and rapport in closing a sale3:28 Engaging the client10:04 The importance of building value.19:30 The strategy of providing the client with a choice

Are you a new lawyer and need help getting your name out there? In this podcast episode, Jim and Tyson introduce Vaidas Cikotas and Steve Williams from RizeUp Media, a digital marketing agency specializing in law firm marketing. They all discuss how attorneys can establish an online presence and set the foundations for their business.First Thing to SetupWorking as a new defense lawyer involves a lot of marketing to get those first few clients. People need to be able to find you as a lawyer. One thing that is important to set up is Google My Business. This allows someone to add and edit business info and allows you to know how people find your business. This makes sure all information is up to date so you do not lose a single customer.Make ConnectionsNetworking is an important aspect of any business. In the legal field, networking with fellow attorneys is crucial to not only making connections but letting others know you are in business. If a fellow attorney cannot take on a case, they may refer a client to you. Being new in the business is all about making connections. Creating an online presence is another way to get your name and business out there. In relation to the legal field, commenting on various cases that are making headlines is a great way for people to understand your perspective. Social media like Twitter or Facebook is a great tool for this. The more online presence you have, the easier it will be for people to find you when they search on Google.Consistent Online PresenceVaidas and Steve talk about how a lot of great law firms exist but because they don't have a solid and consistent online presence, people are not aware of their work. They emphasize the need to keep an up to date website with the correct contact information, staff directory and biographies and the cases that attorneys have worked on. Think about this: If you need someone to landscape your backyard and the companies you are searching up do not have pictures of their landscaping work, you are not going to hire them. The same thing goes for law firms! Law firms and lawyers alike need to show their successes to get clients. Jim's Hack: Don't give your cell phone number to your clients when they are your clients, but give it to them after so they can refer you cases. Vaidas's Tip: Understand what you are spending for marketing and ask for help. Steve's Tip: Give your clients your office phone number of your firm when they sign up.Tyson's Tip: Use Zoho voice! Episode Highlights: 2:15 The initial steps attorneys should take to establish their online presence 5:59 Importance of creating content to build presence on social media 14:13 Exploring the long-term benefits of organic search results 19:22 The significance of having a good online reputation

Today we look at the all-to-common dilemma of mismanaging customer questions. I once worked with an ex-TV news reporter, who actually created a company devoted to teaching the art of “question deflection.” In fact, this person did quite well. Why? Because there is an enormous corporate appetite for manipulating customer questions. Do we really think that customers like our clever, devious, and manipulative ways of managing their queries? Or, how about the recent trend to just “ghost” customer questions altogether? Do we really think these behaviors lead to a bounty of repeat and referral business? Join us as we look at a solid way to raise the bar on customer satisfaction. Come on folks…JUST ANSWER THE DANG QUESTION!Support the show
Do you need help improving your law firm's client journey? Are you finding it hard to get clients? In this episode, Matt Spiegel, the co-founder and CEO of Lawmatics, discusses the importance of providing excellent customer service in the legal industry and improving the client journey.It is evident that lawyers are not CEOs. They don't run businesses. But, Matt emphasizes the need for law firm owners to run their practice like a business. Law firm owners need to go out and find clients to grow their firm just like a CEO would go out and make connections to grow their success. Part of growing your business and law firm ensures the client is always happy because a happy client equals a happy practice. Matt delves into the ways to prioritize the happiness of a client.1 | Client Begins The client journey begins the moment a client reaches out to your firm via email or phone. This is part of the “client intake phase”. This phase is crucial to getting a client because they are reaching out to multiple firms at once. You need to ensure staff are engaging right away so they don't lose the client. Immediate engagement shows the client exactly how you will respond to them throughout the process. It shows that those in the firm care and are ready to provide the client with what they need, even if it's just basic legal information.2 | Active ClientThe “active matter phase” is the communication throughout the length of a client's case. Like phase one, communication is key to getting and retaining a client. It is important to provide the client information throughout the journey. Make it a habit to market to them. Send them information like newsletters that include things that are external to your firm. It is a good idea to set up a client portal, where individuals can go into a system and get updates on their case. If email communication is too much (and it can be in this industry), a client portal is a great way to input all necessary information and the client can retrieve it on the other end. 3 | Former Client The “former client phase” is a neglected but important phase in the client journey. 75% of clients come from referrals. Even when a client's case is complete, the relationship between the attorney and client needs to continue. There are many ways to maintain a good relationship with a former client. Send a birthday and holiday email every year or add them to a mailing list for networking events. What this does is let the client know the firm has their best interests in mind even after the working relationship ends.Matt speaks about only doing things in your law firm that you can measure. You need to be able to back up your success with KPIs and numbers. Think about the conversion rates of initial screening calls that lead to actual clients. This will measure how successful the intake process is for your firm. Cost per lead and cost per client is another metric to consider to ensure the amount it takes to bring a client on board and how much you are making from that client makes sense.Take a listen!6:57 Immediate engagement and rapid response to create a positive first impression8:45 Focusing on maintaining the relationship with a former client8:58 Providing excellent customer service from the very first contact with a client9:53 Delighting clients through effective communication during the active matter phase17:29 The importance of automation

Why do many business leaders expect other people to just "understand" their value in the marketplace?You created an LLC. You bought a domain. You built a website. You posted on LinkedIn, Instagram, and TikTok.And you're just expecting folk to come running to you after you announced you exist as a business or provide a new service?I'm sorry to bring you back to reality, but that's a dream that typically won't come to pass out of the gate.Profitable businesses become profitable businesses from great leaders who can provide a clear understanding to others about the value of the business, the impact of the service, the why behind your existence, and where you can take others.Whether you're a solopreneur, a co-founder, an executive leader, a director, a manager, or somewhere in between, a business doesn't grow, survive, thrive, scale, and expand without high-quality leadership across the board to drive revenue, leverage effective marketing, produce concrete sales tactics, and cultivate great company culture.The question becomes, are you that leader? Can you be that leader? How do you be that leader? And what does that look like?This episode will expand on questions you must answer to know what type of leader you are and where you fit into your business. We will also explore the honest truth behind the key metrics to pursue to scale your business and the myths we debunk behind what many leaders need to stop focusing on because it's a waste of time, money, and resources.This episode is full of heart, energy, and a barrage of reality checks served with a side of truth. iDigress Exclusive: This is the first iDigress episode with a video recording counterpart on YouTube.
