On top of all of the great legal work, NMR pumps out incredible content which is published on their blog and youtube channel. This isn’t your typical lawyer speak boring blog posts: blah, blah, blah, big word, some jargon, some other words I don’t know. NMR simplifies what they produce, so the people who are actually (not lawyers) reading and watching the content can understand it. This epiphany of a concept has been very fruitful for NMR’s online traffic.
How I Helped
Hence, where I can in. NMR knows their legal side of things, and intuitively, they know a lot about how to market and leverage the internet. But online marketing is not their job, they are lawyers. We started by looking at an overview of NMR’s web analytics and talking about their overall goals. Soon we transitioned into how they can leverage what they are currently doing to develop more followers and charitable contributions. I was already impressed with NMR’s style, but I was double impressed with their forward thinking and understanding of growth opportunities. We literally were talking about analytics performance and within in twenty minutes brainstorming about marketing through a microsite.
NMR is running an Indigogo Campaign to help support all of their great services
