The Legal 500: Law firm submissions 101

April 4, 2022

We love legal rankings. It’s true.

We love a lot of normal loveable things, like dogs and books and hot coffee. But we may be unique in our affinity for keeping tabs on the best legal rankings in the game and sharing that information with our clients. 

In the past, we’ve chatted in depth about Chambers and Partners, Best Lawyers and Super Lawyers

Today’s star is The Legal 500.

Warm up your coffee ’cause here we go!
(Note: We refreshed this blog post in November 2023 to reflect new insights from The Legal 500 and common questions they hear.)

The Best Lawyers in America: Law firm submissions 101

We love legal rankings.

Well. Let me rephrase.

We love legal rankings that are worth your time, and also carry credibility when awarded.

Recently, we did a deep dive into why we are fans of Chambers.. 

Another legal ranking we recommend? Best Lawyers®

On our Spill the Ink podcast, Michelle chatted with Elizabeth Petit, Director of Research and Development, and Managing Editor at Best Lawyers. I listened to their conversation a few times (because I’m a big fan of the podcast and it was chock-full of incredible information), and have boiled down the highlights for you here!

Attending virtual conferences: How to get value from a socially distanced event

October 27, 2020

While attending a conference used to mean skiving off work for a few days to listen to industry-specific keynotes with boutique coffee in your hand, these days … not so much.

Conferences are now being held entirely online, with participants watching presentations on one screen while checking in with work on another. This is all before we take into account that the farthest most of us can travel these days is to our porch. 

So even if you’re a rare unicorn of a human who can focus entirely on days worth of online presentations, odds are you are sharing your space with a partner, enthusiastic pet or homebound children.

This doesn’t mean you should throw in the towel.

B2B and video: A match made in ROI heaven

December 16, 2016

Reputation Ink’s exclusive interview with Ed Heil of StoryTeller Media + CommunicationsB2B and video: A match made in ROI heaven

Content may be king, but video has taken the crown for queen.

Don’t believe me? Casually scroll through your Facebook feed. Check out a competitor’s website. Sign up to receive INKsights email newsletters from your favorite agency.

In November, the Rep Ink team dug out our gloves and scarves and headed to Boston for HubSpot’s INBOUND conference. There, our team interviewed Ed Heil, Owner of StoryTeller Media + Communications. We wanted to learn from Ed why B2B companies should be using video, and how to do so effectively and strategically.

When it comes to marketing, B2B companies don’t have the luxury of playing to impulse and low-commitment buys like B2Cs can. What do you do if you aren’t selling cookies, but rather production equipment to cookie manufacturers?

July 27, 2016

How to deliver content that Google (and your prospects) love

What B2B marketers must know about SEO: the basics

Newsflash: Writing great content is NOT enough in the world of search engine optimization (SEO).

Wait. Pump the brakes!

Have we not been told forever to raise our right hands and proudly swear to produce great content and the rest would follow?

In the good ol’ days, marketers could develop a thoughtful editorial calendar, produce topical blogs and promote an e-book that solved prospects’ pain points and consider it a job well done. Case closed.

But SEO has changed the content marketing landscape. If you want the right people to find your content at the right time, implementing SEO best practices is a must.

3 Ways the Jacksonville Sheriff Builds Bridges With Social Media

We’ve all done it.

Dinner is simmering on the stove and, hey, I have a few minutes to kill. Let me just give social media a quick scan.

Then, before we know it we’ve watched three Tasty videos, an adorable (but worrisome) clip of dogs playing with a bear and received some life motivation from a pre-kindergartener. BAM.

Dinner burns and we find ourselves scraping burnt pasta from the bottom of our cast-iron pot, and eating Nutella out of the jar. Again.

Good content does that. It grabs ya and pulls ya in and makes ya want more.
