Episode 1: The Importance of Finding Your Niche

Jay and Tom discuss the value and attendant benefits of establishing a narrowly defined niche, both in your practice of law and especially in your content marketing strategy.

Matters Raised

  • Why should lawyers develop a niche in their practice of law?

  • What are the benefits and payoffs of building a reputation for having such a niche?

  • How does that niche translate to your content marketing strategy, in the form of thought leadership?

  • Scott Becker: A case study in the power of the niche law practice.

  • What is the Thought Leadership Flywheel, and how does that self-perpetuate the building of a legal practice? (See below)

  • If you don't currently have a niche practice, can you still employ a niche thought leadership strategy?

  • How will this niche approach ultimately lead to better opportunities, bigger engagements, and greater rewards?
