Top 10 tips for Solicitors Client Development

There are some greats tips client development for solicitors on Marvin Winthorps blog www.solicitorsmarketingtips.co.uk

I particularly like Tip 8: No random acts of lunch. "Be purposeful; call people who can refer you business and take them out to lunch. You’re going to eat anyway, so don’t eat at your desk. Invite estate agents, accountants, lawyers at larger firms, insurance brokers and bankers. Also, contact your law school friends, to find out what they’re doing and let them know you can handle their referrals."

Forget law firm websites - The future is time based streams 

Kevin O'Keefe from the excellent Lexblog writes that the future of the internet in not with static websites but with time based steams. He advises lawyers on getting the most from their internet pressence.

"Irish academic, journalist, and author, John Naughton (@jjn1) wrote yesterday that we ought to forget about the website, the page and the visit. The dominant metaphor for the future of the internet is the time-based stream.

 

Communication theorist Marshall McLuhan observed that “We look at the present through a rear-view mirror and we march backwards into the future.” Amen, says Naughton. (Amen, I say as to most law firms)

So although the web has changed out of all recognition in two decades, our underlying metaphor for it probably hasn’t changed that much. And this has the downside that we’re effectively blind to what is actually happening, which is that we are moving from a world of sites and visits to one that is increasingly dominated by streams. The guy who articulates this best is a Yale

computer scientist named David Gelernter.

The title of his latest essay on the subject – “The End of the Web, Search, and Computer as We Know It” – conveys the basic idea. “The space-based web we currently have will gradually be replaced by a time-based worldstream,” he writes. “This lifestream — a heterogeneous, content-searchable, real-time messaging stream — arrived in the form of blog posts and RSS feeds, Twitter and other chatstreams and Facebook walls and timelines. Its structure represented a shift beyond the ‘flatland known as the desktop’ (where our interfaces ignored the temporal dimension) towards streams, which flow and can therefore serve as a representation of time.

 

Look at the big movers in the net today. Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and LinkedIn. None are based on websites – corporate or personal. Even LinkedIn is focusing on publishing and sharing initiatives for this year, not pages or sites.

Look at some of the real leaders on the net. Leaders who have strong word of mouth reputations and who have built relationships leading to business – Dave Winer, Charline Li, Guy Kawasaki, Amy Jo Martin, Robert Scoble, Brian Solis, Fred Wilson, Jeremiah Owyang, and Steve Rubel.

None of them used websites to grow their reputation and business. Each of them networked through the net using ‘lifestreams,’ including blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and RSS feeds.

"When folks in your law firm say we need to update our website before any other Internet initiatives, you ought to scream, ‘Bunk.’ When folks say let’s use blogs and social media as part of our website, tell them ‘You’re all wet.’

Get your lawyers out on Internet time-based streams if you want them to build relationships and grow their reputation. Websites, though needed in simple form, ought to be your rear view mirror when it comes to key initiatives."

Hospitals Outsource Transcription, Coding Despite New Technology

As hospitals implement electronic health records and prepare for the impending transition to the ICD-10 diagnostic code set, many hospital information management (HIM) departments are outsourcing transcription and coding services for a variety of reasons, according to a recent survey of HIM executives conducted by KLAS Research.

The KLAS report found that 11% of respondents predicted their use of transcription would increase; most of those executives worked in hospitals that were adding new physicians or new facilities to their organisations.
