5 Ways to Heat Up Your Social Media during the Summer

The summer months can mean slower traction on your business' social media content.  It's not unusual to see lower engagement rates on social media posts when the kids are out of school, people are away from their desks more and often times traveling. 

Instead of abandoning your social media efforts altogether, summer provides the perfect time for business owners to catch up, analyze and get creative.  

The top five things you should be doing this summer to heat up your social media: 

  1.  Bring in new connections. Who else has a stack of business cards sitting on their desk?  Now is the time to go through them, send LinkedIn connection requests, add the emails to your email marketing system and schedule appointments with the ones that you should have followed up on.

Attorneys, the time is now to embrace social media

Typically, when one thinks of an attorney, the image of a sophisticated professional surrounded by paperwork comes to mind. From online documents and filings to video depositions and sophisticated virtual models, the reality is that technology has made its way into law firms. Yet, we still find that many lawyers are slow to embrace social media.
