Your intention might be general, like increasing your client base and law firm revenues. Some law firms want to target specific new clients, like people who got harmed by exposure to asbestos in the workplace.
If you already have a Facebook page, a social media advertising agency could update it to work better for you. At our agency, we can upgrade your existing Facebook page or build a new one for you. We create custom landing pages for each of your marketing campaigns.
For example, you might want to go after clients with possible claims for harm from Round Up, Invokana, or the shingles vaccine. You do not have to confuse the reader by having all three of these separate topics on one landing page. We can make a unique landing page for each of the three subjects.
We use eye-catching images that attract attention. Once we capture the reader’s interest with graphics, we can educate the individual about the type of lawsuit. We might share information about symptoms, complications, and causes of injuries from defective products.
The Facebook landing page can then capture the prospective client’s contact information to make it easier for you to convert the person from a lead to a client. We can prescreen leads so that you do not waste your time on people who do not qualify for the litigation. We can ask a few simple questions in a user-friendly format. The prospects who are eligible can get sent to your law firm website.
Unlike traditional advertisements in media, like newspapers and television, Facebook ads offer great flexibility at a lower cost. Traditional ads do not prequalify potential clients or gather their contact information for you.
We track the results of Facebook marketing campaigns with precision so that you always know what worked best. It is guesswork to try to correlate traditional marketing methods to results. You merely know that you spent a certain amount of money on some ads. After that, your business either increased or it did not. Any change to your client base could be from an unrelated cause.
You can target a narrow niche or cast a wide net with Facebook ads for your law firm. You might want to go after one manufacturer of one model of a chainsaw, or you might want to let the world know that your law firm merged with another. You can tailor your Facebook ads to create a perfect fit for your goals.
Depending on your area of practice, you might generate lots of new leads by giving away information for free. That might sound counterintuitive, but people trust companies that help them without asking for anything in return. You can build your brand as a law firm that cares about people and wants to help them.
When you share information that people can find useful, they are likely to stay on your site longer. So that potential clients can get more information, your Facebook ad can send them to your law firm’s website. At that point, potential clients may already feel as if they have a relationship with you.
According to the Pew Research Center, about 70 percent of American adults are on Facebook. That number has remained constant since 2016. Facebook leaves Pinterest, LinkedIn, Snapchat, Twitter, WhatsApp, and Reddit in the dust when it comes to daily users. Nearly three out of four adult Facebook users visit the social media platform at least once on a daily basis.
Many businesses find Facebook ads to be an effective marketing tool because their audience is already there. You do not have to go out in search of your intended market. You merely need to tap into that audience with targeted ads that make the most of Facebook’s guidelines and algorithms.
Facebook provides useful information about the demographics of its users, such as their gender, age, level of education, personal traits, interests, and ad preferences. The more you know about your intended audience, the more effectively you can reach your desired market.
When you put your name out there to the public, you want to look professional. An ad that looks amateur can damage your law firm’s reputation. Working with an advertising agency that specializes in helping lawyers grow their practices can help you project the image you want.
At X Social Media, we want to help you reach your goals of financial success. You can call us today at (888) 670-0006 to get started.
Instagram has the advantage of immediacy by getting your message out to your existing and potential clients in real-time. Your audience can feel as if they are having a conversation with you. When people feel engaged, they are more likely to come on board as a client and hire you to handle their legal matters.
In the past, significant commercial brands needed to spend millions of dollars and many years to create an image for themselves in the eyes of the consumer. Thanks to social media tools like Instagram, a law firm can craft their image with regular postings. This type of brand building is far more effective than traditional marketing.
Savvy use of hashtags lets you tap into specific niches that you want to reach. People who identify with certain hashtags will want to connect with your firm because they will see you as “like-minded.”
Hashtags can be a gold mine for your firm’s online presence, sending scores of leads to your Facebook page or your firm’s website. People tend to follow others who use the hashtags that interest them, which means that they will see your future Instagram postings as well.
You can use Instagram to educate your existing clientele about your areas of practice and recent success stories. Let’s say that you handled a mesothelioma case for a family. Later, if a member of that family gets severely injured by a dangerous prescription drug, they can see your Instagram posts about that medication, which could lead that family member to turn to you again for legal consultation.
Your existing clients might think your firm only handles the specific type of case that they initially reached out to you for. If they see your Instagram posts about different kinds of lawsuits, they can realize that you could help them in a new case.
It seems as if there is a new social media platform nearly every day. Despite this fact, only Facebook and YouTube have more American adult users than Instagram when you compare social media trends in the United States. In this regard, every law firm should be on Instagram. When you integrate Instagram and Facebook into your marketing campaign, you can reach a massive audience.
If you advertise in a print magazine or newspaper, you only reach the people who read those publications. Even if the reader notices your ad, they will likely throw the print item out after looking at it one time.
About 60 percent of Instagram users hop onto the site daily, and many use Instagram more than once a day. If they do not see your Instagram posts immediately, they can see them later, particularly if they follow you.
Your followers can share your Instagram posts on their Instagram stories, Facebook, and other social media platforms, which can expand your reach well beyond your followers. Some of the people who see your posts through shares might become followers, and the cycle repeats, which increases the net you can cast with every additional Instagram post.
A well-written Instagram ad can bump up your client base by making time-limited offers to bring in new business. You can promote your webinars, provide promo codes for an e-book that you give to clients, and run other special promotions. We write tasteful content to make sure that your brand and reputation get enhanced—not diminished—by these Instagram offers.
Americans love winners. The World Series and the Super Bowl attest to this fact. People want to associate with people and companies that succeed.
When you announce your settlement and litigation wins on your Instagram account, you reinforce to your clients and your intended audience that your firm is the right choice for people who want to be victorious. When someone sees, for example, that you won $5 million for a client, they may think of you when they need a lawyer for a similar matter.
Because Instagram is in real-time, your followers and potentially their followers can feel as if they are celebrating with you. Positive and uplifting content can help potential clients remember your law firm in the future.

Yes, social media can help grow your law firm. Having a presence on social media can help to create your brand identity, get the word out about your law practice, and develop relationships with potential clients.
You might already be on social media as an individual, but not yet feel comfortable using this tool to increase your business. Here are some of the reasons you might want to consider taking advantage of social media to generate more clients:
You went to law school to practice law, not spend your time learning about marketing, algorithms, and computers. You might worry that if you try to make a splash on social media for your law firm, it might look amateur and do your reputation more harm than good.
No worries. There are advertising agencies that specialize in social media as a means of helping businesses become more successful. You tell us your goals and the types of clients you want to attract, and we can take it from there.
Americans use social media on their cellphones, other mobile devices, and computers, so your message can get seen whether people are at home or on the go. The Pew Research Center says that nearly 70 percent of American adults use Facebook. Instagram is at 37 percent, but on the rise, while Facebook’s numbers have been steady for several years.
Not too long ago, if a person wanted to find a lawyer, he grabbed the nearest phone book and looked through the attorney ads. If he did not have a phonebook handy, he would have to wait until he found one to look up a lawyer and the telephone number.
A potential client can easily find a lawyer who has a prominent social media presence, regardless of the day of the week, time of day, or where the individual is at the moment. Your contact information can be available immediately to the public.
Unlike advertising in prior decades, social media advertising can get changed whenever you decide to modify the message. For example, you might target harmful prescription drugs for a while and then launch another type of mass tort campaign after you learn about a new defective product. You can run multiple campaigns for different kinds of lawsuits.
Back when advertising was in print or on the radio and television, law firms had to pay a lot of money to get their message out to the entire public so that they could reach the people they wanted to attract as clients. Thanks to algorithms on social media platforms, you can get the results you want without having to waste money on irrelevant portions of the market.
“Old school” advertising was not a conversation. Agencies had to shout their message and hope that the right people heard it.
Social media offers two-way communication. When a potential client can interact with you or your message, the individual can feel more connected and engaged. This feeling can increase the likelihood of that person converting from a lead to a client.
Facebook and Instagram allow people to ask questions, post comments, and get feedback right away. You can learn more about your target market, which can help you fine-tune your marketing campaigns.
Unlike traditional marketing, which could only present some catchphrases and slogans for the potential client, social media allows you to provide a wealth of information about your law firm. You can anticipate the questions a prospective client might ask and answer those issues. This approach can make it convenient for a client to decide to hire you because they do not have to wait until business hours to contact your office.
Social media advertising highlights your law firm on platforms where your potential clients are already spending their time. Using an advertising agency that specializes in social media can give you the freedom to devote your attention to your law practice instead of marketing.
X Social Media would love to talk with you about how we can help your law firm grow. If you want to find innovative ways to attract people to your law firm through pre-qualified leads on Facebook, call an X Social Media Facebook Xpert today at (888) 670-0006.
The makers or users of asbestos products can be liable when people develop mesothelioma or other forms of cancer from asbestos exposure. Experts say that public health organizations across the globe failed to protect the public, allowing cancers from asbestos exposure to claim millions of lives.
Since the 1970s, companies that mine, process, and distribute asbestos or make products containing asbestos have been the subjects of a multitude of lawsuits from people harmed by this substance. By the year 1991, legal experts estimate that there were 115,000 personal injury cases pending in state and federal courts across America for asbestos exposure injuries.
Mesothelioma and other asbestos cancer lawsuits continue to get filed today because it takes decades for these deadly diseases to develop after asbestos exposure. Also, people still get exposed to asbestos today.
Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that tends to target the outer layers or linings of internal organs in the abdomen and chest. Asbestos exposure on the job is the most common cause of mesothelioma. Additional potential risk factors of asbestos exposure and cancer include living near an asbestos mine or factory and living with a family member who experiences asbestos exposure in the workplace.
It can take 20 to 60 years or even more for mesothelioma to develop. You cannot escape the risk from exposure by the passage of time. With some other forms of cancer, like lung cancer, a person can reduce some of the chance of developing cancer by stopping smoking, for example. Once exposed to asbestos, however, the risk of mesothelioma does not decrease.
The link between asbestos and cancer risk has long been established. Exposure to asbestos can cause other forms of cancer in addition to mesothelioma. The American Cancer Society reports that people exposed to asbestos on the job face:
Asbestos exposure can also cause scar tissue, fluid buildup, and other conditions in the lungs that make it difficult to breathe.
Asbestos used to be much more widely used in construction, roofing, shipbuilding, car parts, and many other products and industries than it is today. Asbestos was a popular insulation and fireproofing material for many years.
People started to notice in the early 1900s that people who breathed asbestos on the job tended to develop lung scarring. Few laws protected people who got harmed by dangerous products then, so little changed about the use of asbestos.
After 1950, the medical community realized that asbestos could cause cancer. It became illegal for construction companies to use asbestos when constructing houses and other buildings. Also, laws prohibited the use of asbestos for insulation and many other products.
Although new construction cannot use asbestos, the law does not require people to remove existing asbestos from buildings. When an older house, school, or factory gets renovated, workers and people who live, work, or attend school in those buildings can get exposed to asbestos.
Specialized asbestos abatement professionals should remove asbestos when the substance is detected in a building undergoing renovation. Left undisturbed, existing asbestos under layers of other materials is not supposed to be dangerous. Old asbestos can harm people, however, when the substance is in water pipes or on the surface.
Asbestos used to be a popular material in home siding and roof shingles. If a person comes into contact with those items, there could be unwanted health consequences. Also, if a worker gets exposed to asbestos on the job, the asbestos fibers can stay on the worker’s clothing and end up in the family home, harming other members of the household. A high number of American workers still get exposed to asbestos in the workplace.
At X Social Media, we can help lawyers find potential clients who have developed mesothelioma or cancer caused by asbestos, or those who have lost a loved one to one of these diseases.
We can target the specific audience your law firm wants through ads on social media and other marketing strategies. We can help you grow your practice. Call us today at (888) 670-0006 to get started.
Some of the descriptions of human sex trafficking include coercing the victim by:
The actual trafficker can be liable both criminally and in civil court if the conduct satisfies the state’s human or sex trafficking statutes.
Although many sex traffickers are individuals or small groups of criminals, a business can be engaged in this practice. Some states provide criminal and civil penalties against business entities that knowingly participate in these crimes. Depending on the state, a company could lose its business license, get dissolved or reorganized by the court, and/or face fines as well as criminal charges.
Some commercial establishments appear to be legitimate businesses but are actually fronts for sex trafficking. Also, reputable companies in the hotel and hospitality industry might not participate actively in sex trafficking, but their employees turn a blind eye to suspicious behavior.
Since the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000, there have been many additional legislative developments to ban and penalize human sex trafficking. Hotels can face criminal and civil liability if they notice possible trafficking but fail to act.
The justification for this liability is that failing to act allows the crimes to take place at the hotels. The perpetrators rent rooms at the hotels, which means that the venues receive financial gain from the illegal activity on the premises.
Hotels should train their employees to report instances in which they observe possible indicators of sex trafficking. Traffickers seldom bring their sex workers to the front desk of the hotel, so hotels need to be vigilant.
The workers who are most likely to notice suspicious activities are room service and housekeeping employees. Some examples of these factors include:
Of course, some of the more obvious signs of sex trafficking include when the victim looks frightened or anxious, wears inappropriate clothing, or gets mistreated in public by the trafficker. Many criminals, however, make an effort to hide their conduct.
Attorneys can increase the awareness of human sex trafficking issues through social media that targets trafficking victims and hotel employees. You can generate leads that provide evidence that a hotel ignores suspicious behavior that endangers the victims of these crimes.
At X Social Media, we specialize in helping businesses grow through the savvy use of social media advertising on Facebook and Instagram. We take pride in delivering personalized service.

The term multidistrict litigation (MDL) refers to many individual cases that get transferred from multiple districts around the United States to one federal district court because these cases involve at least one common factual question. MDL cases originally get filed in state and federal courts around the country.
When the legal community realizes that there are hundreds or thousands of similar cases making similar allegations against a defendant or group of defendants, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) decides whether to consolidate and transfer the cases to one federal district court. This is among the steps that lead to a multi-district litigation.
Since 1968, the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (also called the MDL Panel) has evaluated whether to transfer individual lawsuits to one federal district. The rationale behind this process is that doing so:
The MDL Panel has two tasks:
When the MDL Panel answers the first question of common factual issues as “yes,” the individual lawsuits get transferred to the federal district the MDL Panel selected. Unlike a class action case, however, MDL lawsuits are still individual lawsuits. Any claims that do not get dismissed, settled, or resolved at trial in the MDL coordinated proceeding get transferred back to the courts where the plaintiffs filed them.
MDL cases tend to center around products or events that allegedly harmed a large number of people. Prescription drugs, medical devices, chemical substances, and natural or environmental disasters can lead to MDL cases.
Identifying, transferring, and administering large numbers of lawsuits from many different judicial districts around the country requires the consistent implementation of an organizational strategy. The stages might differ, depending on the subject matter of the individual lawsuits. Here are the MDL steps the courts follow in managing multidistrict litigation in products liability cases:
There might be hundreds or even thousands of individual lawsuits consolidated in one MDL action. Very little will happen in the vast majority of those cases until after the bellwether trials. The unresolved cases that get transferred back to their original courts from the MDL action can go to trial in those courts.
A legal advertising agency can help you reach potential clients for lawsuits that could become part of MDL litigation. At X Social Media, we help law firms target an audience for specific kinds of legal claims. Call us today at (888) 670-0006 to find out how we can help you grow your practice.
A PNC is what lawyers refer to as a potential new client. For lawyers, a PNC is considered a “good lead” or a qualified lead. When looking to increase their qualified lead generation, lawyers can attract a PNC with advertising that targets a specific audience.
If your law firm is looking to attract PNCs for a mass tort, ads can be strategically placed across social media channels to pinpoint individuals that may require your law firm’s services.
One method of doing so is via social media advertising, such as through Facebook and Instagram. These popular platforms have millions of users across the U.S. and lend helpful tools that allow your marketing team to measure user engagement and client conversion.
With so many daily active users, Facebook and Instagram are considered marketing giants in today’s digital advertising world. In fact, according to Facebook’s fourth-quarter 2019 report, the site features over 1.66 billion daily users worldwide.
Facebook and Instagram are constantly collecting user information, some of which is voluntarily given by an individual user, some of which is generated based on their search history.
The user metrics on Facebook and Instagram allow you to target users based on their:
When your law firm is ready to run an ad campaign around a specific practice area or mass tort, your ads can be hyper-focused to attract qualified leads. For instance, if your law firm is looking to run an ad campaign for a specific product liability tort, your ads can be tailored around the product itself or the manufacturer through various user metrics.
Furthermore, you can improve your law firm’s PNC count by diving into the enhanced audience data gathered from your ad campaign. This data can tell your law firm about the types of users that clicked on or engaged with your ads. From there, you can track which ads have worked and which ads have not.
Once a PNC encounters your ads on social media, they will need a call to action that influences them to follow through with your services. After clicking on your ad, they can be directed to your law firm’s custom landing page.
Custom landing pages are a tool used to determine whether or not a PNC is qualified to participate in a mass tort based on their answers to various questions. These inquiries can relate specifically to your ad’s purpose, such as the side effects of a drug, damages from a product, and other valuable details. Many custom landing pages also ask for a PNC to provide their contact information, which then allows your law firm to directly follow-up with your services.
At X Social Media, we understand the potential that advertising on Facebook and Instagram has to offer. Our goal is to create a digital marketing campaign that puts your law firm on the newsfeeds of millions of users at any given time. Not only can this work to boost your client conversion, but it can also help to establish your brand and image at the same time.
Right now, you might be seeking to gather clients for a mass tort. Yet, no matter how genuine your intentions are or how dedicated your law firm is, if you cannot reach the people where they are, you risk being invisible.
Some of the ways that we can promote your law firm’s success include:
We wxrk with you and your team to make sure that PNCs get through your funnel and convert.
At X Social Media, our passion is to see your law firm grow its reach across the web, while also providing you with a customized experience. We use our expert industry knowledge to review what digital marketing plan you already have in place and, from there, take measures to boost its influence.
