Want a roundtable on blogging and social media at your New York City or Cleveland law firm next week?

I am going to be in New York City next Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, October 5, 7, and 8. On Wednesday I fly over to Cleveland for the day. I return to Seattle on Saturday.

As part of my travels I’ve started doing roundtable discussions at law firms on blogging and social media. They’re about an hour long at breakfast, lunch, or any time of the day where lawyers and other professionals of the firm are invited to attend. No beating anyone with a stick to attend, just an invitation to pick my brain for those who may be interested

Let me know if you’re interested. I am working with a number of law firms, both who are clients of LexBlog and those who are not, on scheduling times. Right now I am wide open except for 12 to 2 on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Generally I talk for 20 to 30 minutes and a discussion with Q & A follows, but I’m certainly open as to what would work for you. I’ve enjoyed the meetings and the law firms have gotten nothing but positive feedback from their lawyers.

Here’s a list of possible items to be discussed.

  • Review of existing blogs (if current bloggers in attendance)
    • How are they doing?
    • Are you getting the results you expected?
    • Questions/concerns you may have?
    • My feedback on what I am seeing on your blogs.
    • New ideas/best practices.
  • Social media/social networking
    • General principals of social media.
    • How is it being used effectively by law firms like yours.
    • Which forms of social media offer the highest ROI? (LinkedIn, Blogs, Twitter, Facebook?)
  • Blogging
    • Who’s blogging?
    • Who’s reading them?
    • How much time does it take?
    • What are the legal and ethical implications?
    • What are the best practices?
    • How to best conceive and launch a firm’s first blog?
    • How to get seen/market your blog?
    • How do you measure the ROI from blogging?

    If a roundtable’s not the right the fit, I’m happy to get together for coffee, breakfast or dinner, or a beer.

    I look forward to seeing some of you next week. And stay tuned for word on a beer for bloggers (and friends of bloggers) we’re pulling together.
