AdvocateWire is the cost-effective solution for lawyers and their marketing managers to make media releases public online.

Via AdvocateDaily.com, those in the legal industry now have a reliable way to deliver this information with a guarantee it can be found online by the public and the profession. It’s a great solution for those releases that just won’t get traction with the media, but you’d like the public to see. And, when potential clients are Googling, they will find it thanks to our industrial-strength search engine optimization.

Gone are the days of dependence on mainstream media outlets where your content has to compete for limited space and only a fraction can be found without a subscription.

For a low annual fee, you can now post to AdvocateWire unlimited firm press releases, articles, appointments, announcements, photos and more pertaining to any topic, practice area or individual. AdvocateWire extends your reach far beyond your own website. As a bonus, to drive traffic to your website, we link all your content back to you.

For both big news announcements and routine press releases, AdvocateWire allows you to save money by being very selective about which you choose to broadcast through expensive traditional wire services. Finally, an audience outside of your office will read about the latest achievement within your firm.
