I'm impressed. The mantra of any Slightly Famous marketing strategy is to become the resource for your target market. That means providing valuable information of interest to your prospects that both attracts potential clients and customers to your business while showcasing your expertise.
Law firm Spencer Fane Britt & Browne has created an entire information rich portal for one of their key target markets: the Midwest construction industry. At Midwest Construction Law, a web site rich with free information including articles, special reports, teleseminars and a blog.
