How much time do you spend on social media promoting yourself professionally or your company?

A blog by Andrea Davis on our sister publication’s website IBJ.com made me look at how much time I spend on social media promoting Indiana Lawyer. Preliminary survey results by Carmel-based company Roundpeg say that more than 30 percent of small business devote an hour or more to social media every day.

You can read more at Andrea’s blog.

As Indiana Lawyer’s social media operator, I don’t, on average, spend an hour every day promoting the paper on Facebook or Twitter. There are some days when I don’t even have a chance to launch our Twitter feed and see what’s of interest to those we follow. I do check our Twitter feed more often than Facebook, though. I think more people pay attention to Twitter and LinkedIn than Facebook these days, unless you’re looking for your friend’s vacation photos.

Do you use social media to market yourself to potential clients or to promote your firm or company? Are you on social media (for professional reasons) more than an hour a day? On average, how much time do you spend on social media every day?

And perhaps the most important question, do you find social media has helped you land new business?

    Hello Jennifer, I try to spend about half an hour 4 days per week. Sometimes it ends up being more because I find some really good content to read and pass along. SM has helped strengthen relationships formed in "real life". It has definitely helped with my business.

  1. For many years this young man was "family" being my cousin's son. Then he decided to ignore my existence and that of my daughter who was very hurt by his actions after growing up admiring, Jason. Glad he is doing well, as for his opinion, if you care so much you wouldn't ignore the feelings of those who cared so much about you for years, Jason.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  4. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  5. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.
