Think Twitter’s for Kids? Think Again


There is a common misconception that Twitter and social media is for the younger generation.  It just isn’t true.  The teenagers may know how to upload pictures to Facebook- but they have no clue how to identify, qualify, and engage new clients online.  These “soft skills” for lack of a better term, are much more unusual.  The ability to turn a contact into a client- that takes talent.

I have always said that partners that already know how to network, and aren’t afraid to pick up the phone, have much more potential for success online than young associates.  On this podcast conference call you will have the chance to meet Attorney Bob White, a shining example of an experienced partner level attorney that is landing new clients through Twitter.  You can read more about Bob at the Gunster Website and you can follow his tweets at @soflatechlawyer.
