Continual improvement is a recurring theme for the marketing team at Stewarts, the UK’s largest litigation-only law firm. Their Senior Digital Marketing Manager, Andy sought fresh ways to start conversations with potential new clients and referrers worldwide. He was keen to tap deeper into the reputation of the firm and lawyer-led referral networks as an avenue to win new instructions.
Andy’s research revealed Employee Advocacy as a contender – an approach that would be new to the firm and relatively fresh to the legal sector. It matched the desire of some colleagues to enhance social media use to grow their networks whilst allowing the firm and marketing team to manage the risk.
Andy enlisted Tribal Impact, trialling their Employee Advocacy Launch and Embed Service within a small pilot team before rolling it out wider across the firm.
With the help of Helena Sundarajoo, Marketing Executive at Stewarts, the programme was a resounding success and within nine months Stewarts’ results included:
- +89% Increase in Social Media Driven Web Traffic
- +60% Meaningful New LinkedIn Conversations
- +33% Offline Meetings with LinkedIn Connections
