Most lawyers have LinkedIn profiles, but many aren’t updated or optimized for their target audiences. An inactive profile with outdated credentials deters potential clients, limiting attorneys’ recognition and authority. How can you leverage LinkedIn to communicate your value proposition and clarify your WHY?

As a renowned LinkedIn coach and marketing consultant, Marc Halpert understands the platform’s value in distinguishing yourself and creating lasting impressions. Prospects will likely browse your profile after receiving a referral, so posting engaging and informative content and crafting a bio that aligns with your professional purpose keeps you relevant. Each post should demonstrate your area of expertise, encourage commentary, and include calls to action. However, most lawyers must maintain ethical and professional standards, so ensure your posts are accurate and justifiable.

In today’s episode of The Lawyer’s Edge Podcast, Elise Holtzman is joined by Marc W. Halpert, the Managing Partner of connect2collaborate, who shares techniques for using LinkedIn to market your WHY. Marc discusses the top LinkedIn marketing mistakes, how law firms can build their brands on the platform, and how to use AI responsibly to develop LinkedIn profiles.
