A partner at a large national law firm wanting to make a more personal connection with the Colorado legal market.
Although the client was getting marketing assistance from their national law firm’s marketing and business development team, they wanted to have a more “hands-on” approach to building their own business development strategy in the Denver area. Through word-of-mouth, they sought out Meranda and requested a personalized marketing plan that would specifically put them in front of large players in business and law in Colorado.
The goal for this client was to clearly identify the specific people that they wanted to connect with in the Denver metro area (individuals of influence in the Colorado political and banking scene, entrepreneurs with high socio-economic status, leadership of major companies, partners of law firms in complementary practice areas, etc.) and then create a marketing strategy that catered to those handful of targets based on brand building, event attendance, and practice credentialing.
Met with client to determine preferred client, audience, industry. This included individuals of influence in the Colorado political and banking scene, entrepreneurs with high socio-economic status, leadership of major companies, and partners of law firms in complementary practice areas.
Performed research on all areas of interest including litigation in banking and finance. Connected with individuals within DLM’s personal network of influencers to find create the best strategy for face-to-face, digital marketing, and direct marketing choices.

Developed recommendations for social media (LinkedIn) including posting style, consistent brand messaging, frequency, engagement, groups to join, and unique thematic content.
The attorney chose to use the research and projected calendar to give them an advantage when building business in the Denver area.

The entire strategy increased visibility of this attorney and potential client leads dramatically.
