But for now, let’s get back to basics.  This is just something to think about.  In the next few months there will be many more blogs on how to use various marketing and rainmaking tactics to grow your visibility and book of business.  (Please keep an eye on the blog.  There’s some changes-a-comin’…..)

There is a huge difference between marketing and rainmaking.  It is a difference that many attorneys seem to forget when they try to become rainmakers.  They launch a website, have a Facebook or Linked In page. They write blog posts and give seminars.  They publish newsletters and even books.

Then, they sit back and say “it doesn’t work” or “I never get any clients from this!”

Marketing is about creating the visibility you need to generate the interest for people to contact you.  If people do not know who you are or what you do, then there is no chance they will hire you for their matter.

However, marketing is only one step in developing the prospects you want as your clients. The next step is to create relationships with these prospects.  You have to connect with these people, and referrals sources.

Rainmaking is about creating relationships which turn into business and referrals.
