The 1-Page Marketing Plan by Allen Dib

Lawyers have so much to do every day in the office, particularly when they’re starting out or in their growth stages. The one thing lawyers must spend time on to be successful and separate themselves from the crowd is their marketing. As your practice grows, you lose the bandwidth that is needed on marketing activities for continued growth. The successful lawyer knows the solution to this problem – delegation. Delegating your marketing to trusted and trained staff is the key to a successful practice. The 1-Page Marketing Plan serves two purposes for the lawyer. First, it simplifies marketing. Things you are already probably doing can be summarized and systematized following the teachings in this book. The second great thing this book allows is providing a guidebook for your marketing staff. When you are done with the book and your 1-Page Marketing Plan you and your marketing staff (with your delegated tasks) are set up for success. I highly recommend it!
