LexisNexis®, a leading provider of content and technology solutions, announced today an agreement with JD Supra®, which hosts a rapidly growing platform for law firms to market their expertise online, to enhance the LexisNexis® Social Media Visibility Advanced service for small law firms. JD Supra will syndicate blog content from LexisNexis Social Media Visibility Advanced customers to JD Supra’s established LinkedIn®, Twitter® and Facebook® distribution channels, where thousands of prospective clients, referral sources and media members subscribe to dozens of subject feeds. By distributing this content to a broader audience, LexisNexis customers are able to expand their online footprint, help improve website performance on search engines, and engage prospective clients via popular interactive communities.
“The agreement we’ve reached with JD Supra will provide a tremendous boost to LexisNexis customers who are looking to increase their online visibility, demonstrate thought leadership, and generate more leads,” said Phil Livingston, CEO, LexisNexis Marketing & Business Solutions. “JD Supra’s syndication network enables our customers’ blog posts to reach thousands of recipients who have opted in to receive legal updates on various subjects, and because these channels include high-quality links back to a law firm’s blog, they’re able to greatly enhance a firm’s SEO efforts.”
“Through our relationship with LexisNexis, we’re able to deliver high-quality and focused content to our large and growing audience for legal insights and commentary,” said Aviva Cuyler, Founder and CEO, JD Supra. “JD Supra is always looking for new ways to deliver valuable content to our subscribers, and we’re excited to work with LexisNexis to help its law firm customers share their legal insights with a broader audience.”
The LexisNexis Social Media Visibility Advanced service was launched earlier this year as part of a comprehensive portfolio of website solutions and social media engagement services offered by LexisNexis to small law firms. This family of LexisNexis® Web Visibility Solutions includes websites that combine superior website design with built-in search engine optimization (SEO), comprehensive social media strategies, and the tools and tactics designed to help lawyers and firms establish an effective online presence, engage more prospective clients, and compete effectively in specific practice and geographic areas.
