Want to Get More From Your Social Media Strategy? Get Your Team to Help!

Business growth and team engagement go hand in hand. When your employees enjoy their jobs and are aligned with the firm’s mission, they’re your biggest cheerleaders. That motivation can also help your social media strategy succeed.

At first glance, engaging your employees appears to be easier said than done. According to a Gallup survey of roughly 67,000 workers in 2022, only 32% are engaged at work. However, getting everyone on board and backing your social media strategy is not only relatively easy to do, but the time and effort can have an enormous payoff. 

Benefits of Engaging Your Team

Engaging employees can have a number of benefits for a law firm, including:

  • Increased Productivity: When employees are engaged, they are more likely to be motivated and productive, which can lead to higher levels of output and efficiency.
  • Improved Morale: When employees are engaged, they tend to have higher levels of job satisfaction and feel more connected to their work and their company. 
  • Reduced Turnover: Engaged employees are less likely to leave their jobs, which can help to reduce turnover and the associated costs of recruiting and training new talent.
  • Enhanced Client Service: When employees are engaged, they are more committed to providing excellent customer service, which leads to improved client satisfaction and loyalty.
  • Innovation: An engaged workforce is more likely to come up with new ideas that can lead to innovation and growth. As you’ll see, this aspect can give your social media strategy a tremendous boost.

How Can Your Team Help Your Firm’s Social Media Strategy?

Here are a few ways you can inspire your employees to support your social media strategy.

  • Social Media Training: Provide social media training so that everyone understands the firm’s social media strategy and can effectively support it. This can also help to ensure that your employees are aware of any guidelines or policies related to social media use.
  • Content Creation: Encourage your team to create and share their own content related to the firm or its areas of practice. This can help to increase the diversity of content on your social media channels and can also help to showcase the expertise of your employees.
  • Engaging with Followers: Encourage your employees to engage with followers on social media by responding to comments or direct messages. This can help to build relationships with your audience and can also demonstrate the company’s commitment to client service.
  • Employee Spotlight: Highlight your employees on social media by featuring them in posts or stories. This can help to build a sense of community and connection among the team as well as showcase the culture of your company.


In conclusion, employee advocacy can bring numerous benefits to your social media strategy. As such, it’s essential to encourage and support employee advocacy by providing training, guidelines, and incentives, as well as by creating a company culture that values and recognizes the contributions of its employees.
