2021 Trends for Professional Services Marketing
If we want to take anything away from such a challenging year, being agile and digital savvy are key for any business.
The world of marketing has changed for many businesses and in particular professional services firms such as solicitors, barristers, accountants, chartered surveyors and financial advisers.
Social media influencers and professional services marketing
Professional Services is often seen as a traditional sector, with little place for modern ‘trends’ like social media influencers. But perhaps it’s time to look again.
Top Tips for your Email Newsletter
There is often a lot of debate surrounding email newsletters – Does anyone read them? Is social media a better platform building connections? In fact, email can be a very effective way to connect with your target audience.
Having a mailing list means you have already captured ‘interested’ parties from your target audience and having subscribers means they do want to receive updates from you.
How to Run Remote Workshops
As we are now all getting used to a ‘new normal’ and remote way of working, webinars have become for many, a big part of their routine. With so many online presentations, whether you are the presenter or participant watching, we might find ourselves getting a little tired of them and what to do next for a subject matter, especially in the professional services sector.
It is important, with any digital marketing strategy to keep things moving and fresh. With face to face events unlikely to happen anytime soon, shaking up your online webinar to more of an interactive workshop can help to engage participants and keep the audience’s attention and energy level.

Camera shy? Is there an Alternative to Webinars?
There is no denying that relaying complex or technical information through the written word can be difficult. Hearing someone explain it, and seeing it illustrated with diagrams or images, often resonates better with the audience and helps get the message through.
But what do you do if you are not keen on webinars, either live or pre-recorded, where your face is visible to the audience, and you feel every fidget will be exaggerated by your nervousness?
Webinars and Best Practice
Lawyers, Accountants, Financial Advisers are all used to standing up in front of people delivering and hosting presentations, seminars and events as part of their marketing plan. Webinars can now take that place as the ‘virtual conference’ and keep you connected with your audience and generate leads.
Webinars can be very engaging, aren’t very expensive to create and can be done from the comfort of your own home!
Managing online accounts when you sell or rebrand your business
Recently, we worked with a client whose firm had been completely rebranded. New website, new domain, new email addresses. Unfortunately, before the old accounts disappeared, they didn’t update Google My Business, Twitter or Facebook.
These accounts were registered to an email address that no longer existed, meaning login details couldn’t simply be updated – passwords couldn’t be recovered, and email addresses couldn’t be changed.
