Three Strategies for Law Firms Looking Make Marketing Work in 2017 image

Standing Out in Law Firm Marketing

Ahh, legal marketing, how you have changed since the days that I was a one-man content farm (unpaid intern) at a personal injury attorney.

Combine this with the fact that you still need to close new business after getting someone interested in your services, and you realize that you have a robust challenge ahead. With legal services being one of the most competitive industries, as well as one of the most heavily scrutinized ones by Google, marketing can be an immensely ...

Chiquita PR

Chiquita’s brand image comes across as fun and playful, but the company has some dark history. Chiquita’s original name was United Fruits before rebranding and was an extremely powerful business in South America; so powerful that it had great influence over the local government. When the government tried to regain control in the 1950s, UF launched a PR campaign in retaliation, portraying the Guatemalan government as communist. Meanwhile, UF was branded as the crusader against communism in South and Central America (PS: The Guatemalan government was not, in fact, communist). The campaign was successful and led to a CIA coup to overthrow Guatemala’s leaders. So how did all of this unfold? A Little Bit of Background… United Fruits: South America’s ...
