Lawyers and Blogging

Whenever we want to learn something new, we search for that online. Let me tell you a small story about when I used to work for a company in the early days of my career. I resigned from the company after working for a couple of months. And the company didn’t pay my salary for the last month. And after waiting for three months, I was thinking of taking action. So, I started to search for blogs regarding employment and related legal matters.

First of all, as a lawyer, you are already aware of many situations where common people need to know about the law. And reading laws and regulations is not an easy task. So, you can elaborate on the law in simple language and then can give examples of any situation where the law is actually used. This way, normal people who have no idea about a specific law and regulation, then they will have knowledge about the laws. 

One of the most important things you must know is that most law firms have their legal blogging websites. This way, they can get more clients, do their branding, and spread awareness. When you write legal blogging, that website will increase your reputation and authority. 

So, enough knowledge about legal blogging. Now it is time to start it. Here are the steps that you need to follow.

1. Choose A Niche

When you are planning to start a blogging website, the first thing you need is to choose a niche. There are already existing legal blogging websites, so you need to choose something different that will get you more followers. You can write blogs on a specific law, or you can start writing on different cases.

Suppose there is a blogging website about property law. If someone is thinking of relocating with their family, in that case, they will need some blogs and articles about proper selling and buying. And if you are providing details about property lawyers, then that will be an advantage for sure.

While writing a blog, you need to keep SEO in your mind. When it comes to reaching more audiences, you can’t do that without SEO. This is the most important thing about ranking. But there are bloggers who only think about SEO and do not give attention to the quality. While writing a blog about legal, you should remember that your audience has no idea about the law. So, the blogs should be easily readable, and you need to ensure the quality also.

3. Engage In Conversation

In the ocean of blogs, you need to take part in the ultra-niche conversation. Laws are difficult to understand as there are so many clauses in them. So, do your writing as if you are making a conversation. You can do that by asking simple questions that a regular person can ask and then giving answers to those questions in a simple way. 

4. Remember Your Clients

Other than educating people, there is another thing that you need to remember. You are not only writing for followers but there will be your loyal clients who want to know and learn more about your stories. Also, remember to answer the questions that your clients are asking. You can also ask the audience which topics you should write about. You should also know the confidentiality in legal blogging.
