Running, Mountain Lions, and FOMO

There was a mountain lion sighting yesterday here at Wood Canyon. I thought I’d grab my GoPro and take a run during lunch to see what all the excitement is about. Join me!

THE LIABILITY OF SELFIES- A Lawyer’s Perspective

This week a Royal Caribbean passenger was observed dangerously standing on her balcony railing while posing for a selfie. She was booted from Allure of the Seas cruise ship at the next stop. Earlier this month, four members of the same family drowned at a dam in India after slipping into the water while trying to take a selfie.

According to a study in India’s Journal of Family Medicine and Primary Care, some 259 people worldwide have died while taking selfies from October 2011 to November 2017. I think the number is probably a lot higher, especially when you take distracted driving in to account.

As a lawyer who has a pretty good understanding of the law and, social media (have you read my book?), I want to share my thoughts on the risks of taking dangerous selfies and, who may be legally responsible when someone is injured or dies while taking a selfie. You may be surprised by some of the information I share.

Before we dive into the post, please known and understand that while I am a California lawyer, I’m not you’re lawyer. No legal advice is being given in this post or website. The laws are different in each state, so check with a good lawyer in your state if you have questions or legal needs. Now having gotten that out of the way, here are a few quick thoughts about selfies and selfie liability.

Persuasion in the Courtroom and on Social Media

Good trial lawyers know that giving a great opening statement or, an effective closing argument, involves more than simply sharing the facts and evidence.

They know that to build trust and be persuasive, they must weave the facts and evidence into an interesting and sometimes entertaining story that in the end, adds meaning and value as to why everyone is in the courtroom.

Respecting the time and attention of your jury is critically important. Making sure your presentation is timely, relevant, and strategically transparent is not an option. Doing so builds rapport and trust. Empowering your jury to take that next step, that desired action, will all but guarantee a win for your client.

Creating and sharing content on social media involves the same strategy.

Just like a lawyer in court, your content must be relevant and interesting. It must be timely and in most cases, entertaining.

Strive to create and deliver content in your own unique way and in your own voice. Depending on the circumstances, add the right amount of emotion and in the end, you’ll be creating memorable content that others will talk about, share, and take action on.

I hope you found this approach useful 😉

SOCIAL MEDIA TIPS FOR LAWYERS

What is the “P-U-B” method of communication on social media? Have you tried Tamsen Webster’s “Red Thread” approach to persuasion when creating and sharing digital content?

If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, then you’re going to enjoy this video.

Once or twice a year, I share private content from my LegalMinds Mastermind with the public. This is one of those times.

During this week’s Tuesday live video, social media marketing and branding expert, Erin Gargan King, presented outstanding tips to help lawyers create better content and build their brands on social media. In addition to the “P-U-B” and “Red Thread” methods, Erin also emphasized the importance of training yourself to show your “authentic self” to the world and shared ways to do so consistently.

What I’m sharing in this video are a few clips/highlights that I put together from the regular hour-long weekly Tuesday Q&A.

The content is good. I hope you enjoy the tips!

Stop by LegalMinds if building your brand on social media is of interest to you. You can connect with Erin at Socialite.
