Facebook boasts 3.03 billion monthly users. Instagram reports that 500 million individuals log on to the platform every day. The chances of a potential law firm’s client being on the platform are pretty high. Owned by Meta, advertising on the platform can be an effective way of educating and reaching potential clients.
Before delving into the strategies and benefits of Facebook and Instagram advertising, law firms must consult their State's Bar rules and regulations. Advertising practices for legal services can vary widely, and it's essential to ensure compliance with local guidelines to avoid any potential ethical or legal issues.
Understanding the Landscape
Facebook and Instagram cater to different demographics and engagement styles. Facebook is ideal for reaching a broader audience, while Instagram appeals to a younger, visually oriented demographic. Both platforms offer unique opportunities for law firms to showcase their expertise and engage...
Social media has become an indispensable tool for marketing businesses. It allows for connecting with target audiences, showcasing work, and building brand awareness. However, the psychology of social media goes beyond business promotions. It's about understanding human behavior and the need for a delicate balance between business-focused and personal content.
In this blog post, INGAGE’s marketing team will delve into the psychology behind social media and why every post shouldn't be solely business-oriented.
Understanding the Social Media Landscape
Before we explore the psychology behind social media content, let's take a quick look at the landscape of social media. Platforms like Facebook, Instagram, X (formerly Twitter), and LinkedIn have billions of active users. Each of these users engages with content on a daily basis, and their motivations for doing so are diverse. Some seek entertainment, others crave information, and many desire connection and...

Marketing In the AI Era: Why The Need For Human Creativity Will Always Prevail
In an era dominated by technological advancements, there is an increasing concern that artificial intelligence (AI) might eventually make us perceive human creativity as an “unnecessary skill.” In addition to this, some individuals already perceive creativity as inconsequential and irrelevant – especially in the scientific, legal, and financial fields. In marketing, this can be recognized in the way some marketing companies limit their strategies to a strictly analytical and conservative approach.
What people seem to forget is that a straightforward AI-generated pitch would never suffice to capture the attention and loyalty of consumers. In an era of constant digital noise, technological development, and ever-evolving consumer preferences, creativity has actually become more important than ever before since it plays a pivotal role in breaking through the clutter and establishing a...

In today's digital age, social media has become an indispensable tool for businesses to engage with customers, promote their products or services, and generate leads. However, finding the perfect balance in posting frequency is essential for maintaining a strong online presence without overwhelming your followers. It can be tempting to treat social media with a waterfall effect, posting in a stream of consciousness; however, posting too much can have a negative impact on your business.
Understanding Post Frequency
Post frequency refers to the number of times a business (you!) shares content on its social media channels within a given period, usually a day or a week. Depending on the platform, this includes posts with images, videos, links, or just text. The frequency of these posts plays a role in your marketing strategy, so it is key to find the sweet spot that garners the most engagement and potential...

What was your return on investment?
Lawyers and firms must be very careful when advertising in print ads, online, or other mediums. Each state has its own take on marketing for law firms, and California has some very interesting rules. One, in particular, applies to any misleading or false information in ads.
Advertising may apply to any public solicitation or private communication, such as email campaigns. Rule 7 of the California Bar rules on marketing state that any attorney or law firm's website must not contain any information that may be perceived as confusing, deceptive, or misleading.
Absolute statements like "best," "lowest," "most," "highest," "will," and
"better" should not be used in advertising or marketing as they imply assurances you cannot guarantee. Additionally, you cannot make false, misleading, or deceptive statements about your fees, services, or results.
The law also points out that the...
By now, you have probably heard about the exclusive new social platform called Clubhouse. However, if you have tried to join and been put on a waiting list, you are not alone. So, what is all the fuss about?
Clubhouse is a unique iPhone-only social media platform that allows users to join audio chat rooms to discuss topics. You can choose to participate (meaning speak and listen) or listen only.
Clubhouse was launched in 2020 by a small group of Silicon Valley tech workers and venture capitalists who wanted to stay in touch during the pandemic. Today, Clubhouse is worth $1 billion and has millions of users, many of them heavy hitters like Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk, and other well-known celebrities.
One interesting note about this platform is that Clubhouse has a moderator who allows each person to voice their opinion and can kick someone out if they see fit. Depending on the topic, Clubhouse has individual “rooms” or groups, and people can also...
The ad boycott against Facebook was supposed to be a drumbeat signaling change; a steady, crescendoing chorus of dissenters whose buying power was so strong that their absence would be noted and would bring true change to Facebook.
“There hasn’t been a lot of change,” said Katherine Doble, the president of INGAGE Biz, a digital marketing firm that helps small and medium-sized businesses. “Companies are finding themselves in a Catch-22. Some might silently transition back, they might be feeling the impact of diminished sales and lower traffic.”
“Facebook and Instagram ads are huge in the sense of, that’s where you’re going to find your target audience,” she said. “Especially when it comes to businesses that don’t have recognizable names. When you’re an REI, and you’re looking for hunting supplies, you know you’re looking for REI. But when you’re a beginner, you’re really...
