No longer do law firms need to be convinced that content marketing is a trend. There is a growing understanding that it is a non-negotiable legal marketing tactic. But legal marketers still struggle with how to best strategize and execute their content initiatives, particularly as they face real-world challenges. These include:
- An oversaturated information marketplace
- An audience with limited attention
- A lack of time and resources to generate a high volume of content
Fortunately there is a single solution to help overcome all these hurdles, and that is to rely on niche content marketing.
What Is Niche Content Marketing?
Niche content marketing is simply narrowing the scope of the subject matter and audiences for your content campaigns. The strategy is a time-tested one and has been used successfully by major brands (e.g., Coca-Cola’s water replenishing campaign) and publishers (e.g., NeedlePoint Now). By providing a narrow topic with substantive coverage, your thought leadership will reach a more concentrated and highly engaged audience. This means you actually have the capability to “own” a specific subject matter, rather than competing with dozens of other law firms, or worse, major legal and business publications that are already writing about certain topics in-depth.
Here are some examples of law firm niche content marketing:
- The Art Law Report by Sullivan & Worcester
- The Canna Law Blog by Canna Law Group
- Cruise Law News by Walker & O’Neill
