Do You Hate Marketing?

By Kristina Schneider

When it comes to the idea of marketing, most lawyers cringe.

For many lawyers, marketing seems tacky, unprofessional, and perhaps even “beneath” them.  They didn’t study for countless hours and pay thousands of dollars to get all those degrees and credentials behind their name to then be bothered with the idea of marketing.

But, here’s the reality.  If you run your own practice, you are a business owner.  And, if you’re a business owner, marketing is essential to the success and, frankly, the survival of your practice.

Marketing your business doesn’t mean you have to go out and plaster your face on the nearest billboard off the highway.  But, what you should be willing to do is open your mind to what kinds of marketing strategies successful lawyers out there are currently doing.  These are the lawyers, regardless of area of law, that are going to make it.

Take a moment to check out this great article, “Three Marketing Best Practices for Lawyers Who Hate Marketing” by Chans Weber, the CEO of Leap Clixx, a digital marketing agency.  This article covers just three strategies that you should consider for success.

One strategy, in particular, is the idea of giving seminar presentations or workshops to drive in new business to your firm.  If you are familiar with our President, estate planning attorney Phil Kavesh’s, law practice, then you already know that Phil’s law firm has been doing seminars for well over 30 years now and continues to utilize seminar marketing as the most effective way to drive consistent, predictable revenue into the law firm each month.  If there’s one of those three strategies worth considering, consider adding seminar marketing to your marketing strategy!


Through The Ultimate Estate Planner, Inc., we have a number of different training programs and products that can assist you with your seminar marketing efforts.

  • UPCOMING PRESENTATION: At the upcoming WealthCounsel Symposium in July, Phil Kavesh will be giving a special lunch talk on seminar marketing that you won’t want to miss!  If you would like more information about the upcoming Symposium, click here.


I am pleased to offer estate planning attorneys the opportunity to schedule a free 30-minute consultation with me, where I can go over your current marketing plans or brainstorm with you the most effective marketing strategies for you and your practice.  You will walk away with some ideas for what would be the best way to get started with your marketing efforts and I will also discuss with you ways that we at The Ultimate Estate Planner can help you and your practice!

    Marketing is essential for any business, for lawyers you can always give free advises through blog or answering some legal questions on the forum as a part of marketing.

      This could be true, but our philosophy here is that attorney time is valuable and should not be wasted on blogging and getting too lost or caught up in providing guidance to usually non-serious candidates seeking out free legal advice online. There are far more effective and efficient means of marketing a legal business besides blogging and free legal advice/questions. Those may be helpful, but not provide any immediate and measurable results like the strategies that we practice.
