lorrinda's insight:

The retainer is a  projectized version of the lawyer's billable hour.  Content marketing can be the current day "retainer" for lawyers.

Had fun writing this post after reading a Neil Ferre post encouraging lawyers to embrace content and social marketing or pay the consequences (slowly decling billable hours).

Neil's post is here:

Neil's post got me thinking, "If I were a lawyer how would I create a website to win fast..."

After scooping a Neil Ferree post about lawyers needing to accept content and social marketing I realized my 2008 Infinite Inventory, Moore's Law, Saving Ford ScentTrail Marketing post didn't go near far enough. 

This post is about difficulty of powerful branded manufacturers and widget makers have with embracing that the most important product they created today was digital and online. If your online presence isn't as great as your real world experience a slow decay will rot your brand's foundation. 

Digital First is a revolution, a revolution that never slows for anyone to catch up or understand. This revolution only knows one speed - FASTER and only happens in one time NOW.

 

Neil's post made me smile because if lawyers, traditionally the antelope at our Internet marketing waterhole, are beginning to understand the need for content marketing supported by social media surely the 7th sign is here. Better stock up on canned goods, water and plenty of content and social media marketing if we want to survive :).
