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 😉
