Episode 126:

The New Landscape of Legal Marketing With Social Media

Welcome to episode 125 of the Grow Your Law Firm podcast, hosted by Ken Hardison. In this episode Ken sits down with Ali Awad and they talk about why social media is the way you should be marketing your law firm.

Ali Awad is the owner of CEOLawyer, a multi-million dollar law firm servicing personal injury victims nationwide. Before becoming an attorney, Ali had seven different companies where he went from making $10,000 a week in middle school doing online sales to running a 7-figure car audio business. By age 24, he earned his doctorate in law and masters in business, making him one of the youngest JD/MBA graduates in the entire state of Georgia.

One of his main strategies for client acquisition has been social media marketing. Because he provides free legal advice on Instagram (@ceolawyer) and many other social media channels, he has amassed a following of over 1.5 million followers. Engaging with followers through giveaways, polls, trivia and replying to every comment has allowed the CEOLawyer community to grow greatly in size.

Ali is dedicated to content creation and has developed a unique content strategy for developing ‘blastable’ videos in bulk. He has monthly content shoots with his media team where he creates 60+ videos in a single day. Whether it’s a video post, a meme, a car crash video, or a graphic post, any content can be run as an ad. This is his main marketing strategy. Ali also runs a media company, CEO Media, that is dedicated to teaching attorneys and other professionals how to brand and market themselves through social media. He believes most professionals need help with understanding and leveraging platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn, and Ali is now on a mission to change the way professionals use social media.
