    Video has become more prominent than ever. From video streaming platforms and internet content to large-screen TVs in living rooms and lobbies, this digital medium is surpassing other marketing channels. While lawyers can be slow to adopt new technology, many are posting videos to their social media pages. How can you leverage video to market your law firm?

    With deep expertise in video production for lawyers and law firms, Rob Kates has observed a significant surge in video content among these professionals. Video generates client engagement and drives traffic to your website at higher rates than written content. You can shoot scripted videos or record live speaking engagements and repurpose them as short-form thought leadership content on your social media pages. Analyzing video engagement through likes, comments, and shares allows you to measure and boost ROI.

Rob explains the benefits of this medium, the most effective video forms for law firms, and how to identify and select a video production company.
