Networking doesn't end at legal marketing seminars. A good lawyer has friends in all sorts of places, from doctors to plumbers. You never know who may be the link to your next big case. That's why it's important to get your client newsletter in as many hands as possible so people can see who you are and what you do.
Reaching out to other professionals to contribute to or be featured in your client newsletter helps you in 2 ways:
1) it adds some fresh, new content to your articles - something a bit off the beaten path but interesting;
2) it shows that you're involved with other well-respected professionals and businesses in your area. This builds both your community reputation and professional status.
You can form these networking ties in different ways. Asking around for article submissions is a great way to get businesses who are actively interested in marketing endeavors excited about contributing.
Another way is to approach interesting businesses or people for an interview, showing them that you're just as interested in them as your clients may be.
Whenever you write about or mention other businesses or professionals in your client newsletter make sure they receive or have access to copies of your newsletter to distribute to their clients.
