Content Marketing and Online Customer Engagement for the Cyprus Legal Sector
Training Programme | 17-18 May 2022 | Hilton Hotel Nicosia
This Training Programme is co-organised by the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce & Industry and the Cyprus Bar Association, and is financially supported by the Human Resources Development Authority of Cyprus
The Cyprus legal sector is bound by formal requirements not to advertise in any form. This advertising is defined as the paid marketing of legal services and specific legal brands or entities, including individual lawyers.
In an age when online marketing and social media play significant roles in informing the general public, the line between advertising and promotion may be difficult to define. However, there are numerous opportunities for lawyers in Cyprus to inform their current and potential audience and customers, without engaging in online advertising.
In order to support the legal sector in Cyprus, we have consolidated five methodologies for online promotion which do not violate the stricture on advertising:
a. Content Marketing
b. Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
c. Inbound Marketing
d. Audience Segmentation
e. Content Distribution
These issues will be covered in a strategic training programme defined and implemented by the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Navigator Consulting for the Cyprus legal sector.
Day 1 focusses on content marketing. We will explore this through the prisms of drafting relevant content (such as press releases, articles, and website service descriptions) while at the same time using the principles of search engine optimisation to ensure high ranking.
