Episode 3: The 60-Minute Thought Leader

Jay and Tom address one of the most commonly expressed obstacles to becoming a thought leader: the confines of time. In this episode, they demonstrate how carving out 60 minutes every two months just might be enough to build a well-oiled content marketing machine.

Matters Raised

  • How do lawyers overcome the downward pressure on their bandwidth to find enough time to devote to thought leadership?

  • Making the distinction between "unicorn content" and "donkey content" and that distinction's importance for lawyers looking to become thought leaders.

  • Going deep on one topic, versus wide on many topics.

  • What resources will a lawyer need to limit their personal day-to-day involvement in the nitty-gritty of content marketing?

  • How can one blog topic be enough fodder for a multi-media, multi-sensory content campaign (written arguments, infographics, video, keynote addresses, presentations, podcasting, etc.)?

  • I'm a lawyer, and can only carve out 60 minutes of my time to get started, how would I spend it?
