Legal marketing ethics: How specific can a law firm get with targeted social media advertising?

Law firm advertising and social media. These two subjects are complicated enough on their own, not to mention when you put them together.

Unlike radio ads and the Yellow Pages of yesteryear, today’s social media platforms allow marketers to appeal to users in a more targeted and personal way than ever before.

How to get your employees to share your content (and why it’s so important)

February 5, 2019

How to get your employees to share your content

You’ve written thought-leadership blog posts. Designed beautiful infographics. Developed engaging videos. Created valuable e-books and white papers.

You’ve then shared the content on your company’s social media accounts, sent it to industry influencers, promoted it on your email newsletter, sent out a press release and more.

Now, wouldn’t it be fantastic if all of your employees shared the content to their social media networks? “Yeah, right, like that will happen,” you’re thinking. But it’s not a pipe dream. In fact, it’s one of the biggest trends in B2B and professional services marketing.

Behind the Screens: A glimpse inside our content marketing process

June 1, 2016

Behind the Screens

Turning another year older makes you reflect on all you’ve accomplished. Five loooonnnnngggg years ago this week, I launched an agency focused on creating great content, from blog posts to e-books, infographics, case studies, website content, checklists, videos and beyond.

Throughout our five years, content marketing has become THE marketing buzzword. “Content marketers” are now a dime a dozen. But truly great content is rare. And, man, is it hard to create.

That’s why, to celebrate our 5th birthday, we’re pulling back the curtain to give you a glimpse inside Rep Ink’s creative process so you can see what goes into creating content worthy of the spotlight.

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.

The Social Saga: 3 Exciting New Social Media Tools for Content Marketers

It’s no secret there are (literally) millions of potential prospects just waiting to be found on social media. The hard part is figuring out how to engage them. Marketers spent years waiting for technology to catch up to the capabilities they envisioned. Soon, it’ll be marketers catching up to all the potential social media has to offer. Not only do social media channels inherently support the inbound strategy — creating and promoting informative, non-salesy content to engage consumers and convert prospects — but now they’re beginning to offer ways to track progress. Thanks to innovative new tools, social media is becoming more than just a convenient way to reach a massive audience, but a prime platform for strategic content marketing.

[Free Download] Crimes Against Content: The content marketing & PR party game

If you know Rep Ink, you know we do it up big with our annual holiday card. Last year, we unveiled a custom-illustrated storybook, telling the tale of  how little Timmy wooed Santa with some good ol’ content marketing. Could we really top that? Abso-friggin-lutely. It may have taken us a few months of late-night brainstorming over cabernet, but we did it.
