I’d never even heard of this law firm – until this made a very good impression

If you specialise in a particular area of law – you can learn a lot from this example of increasing your awareness to your target market.


I was driving to band practice and I stopped at some lights.  That’s when I noticed a cool car in front of me. It was the “lines” and the red and black and white paint job  that attracted my eye – then I noticed a sign on the back of  car – for a law firm!

I thought  – what a great way to get your message out to your audience and to establish a point of difference!

This guy is a lawyer who likes cars like I like cars.  He dares to be different. I’d never heard of this firm before until the car and the sign was brought before my eyes.


I then wanted to find out more – so I searched for the firm on-line. I then saw photos of  the office – that  “echoed” that car paint job and reminded me of a car racing team. Same dramatic colour scheme.


Apparently this lawyer specialises in one area of law – helping you save your licence.


I’m usually a very cautious and “cruisey” driver – but I now know who to call if I need help.


So how can you get your name out in front of your audience?

Blokes check out cars. They can’t help themselves. Musicians check out musical equipment.

Maybe if you’re an entertainment lawyer who happens to be a drummer as well – you could get your logo emblazoned on the front of your kick drum. At least you’d be getting your message in front of your potential audience.

Plus, your audience would know you are a lawyer AND you share their interest in music and entertainment. I’m not an entertainment lawyer. Some may argue – I am NOT a drummer either 🙂 – but you get the idea. Dare to be different.

Maybe, it’s the business part of me speaking – but two other words jump out in my mind – TAX DEDUCTION!!!


I imagine you’d be able to claim as a business expense deduction part of the cost of your “promotional props”.

MMMMMMM… I wonder if I can get and claim part of a cool set of wheels like the Wiseman’s lawyer car driver. 🙂

Why Australian Law firms should learn from the Canadian legal profession – and  this Canadian expert 


If you work in Australian Law and especially if you want to know about the future of Law Firm Marketing and Practice, you really should follow this Canadian legal social media expert – Jordan Furlong  who now uses his legal background (Toronto law firm, Canadian Bar Association) as a senior  social media consultant  – specialising in helping law firms.

I have no business connection with Jordan. I’m just a fan of his work and his writing style. We do connect by twitter and I  seriously study his writing style and his analysis of legal websites.

You can learn so much about the latest developments in the law and social media.

Jordan’s thought pieces are insightful and he’s plugged into other great writers from around the world on this  niche topic.

If you want to improve how you use Twitter for business – strategically reveal your interests.


This post follows hot on the heels of a post about how you can borrow the writing techniques of one of my social media writing heroes –  Justin Furlong (a Canadian Law Firm Social Media Expert).

In your twitter profile you don’t have much spaceyet Jordan  goes to the effort of  concisely including some of  his outside -of-work interests – 80s music, C.S. Lewis and something I’d never heard of until today – Settlers of Catan.

I thought it may have been some Canadian folk band – so I searched out what it was!

In the earlier post, I wrote that I suspected that this interest would be  strategically “of interest” to Jordan’s business audience. Heis an expert in strategy after all!

I’m sure it’s true that Jordan DOES like…
