Title: Shameless self-promotion?
Post by JimIvey on Sep 6th, 2007, 9:54pm
I may have an announcement soon -- you know, the sort that typically goes out on 4x6 cards to all clients, associates, acquaintances, etc.  Some announce a new member of the firm.  Others announce a new address.  That sort of thing.

I care about these forums and hope this continues to be a friendly place for people to "talk shop" and answer questions of the innovating public.  In short, I don't want to start or further any trend toward shameless self-promotion.  

My interpretation of the "Announcements" forum was that it is for that purpose -- or perhaps to announce things like CLE workshops, inventor workshops, seminars, etc. as well.  

Would using the Announcements forum for such announcements (new firm members, new addresses, etc.) be considered unseemly?  

Thanks.

I say if it's an IP related announcement (e.g., for new services, etc.), then it's ok.  I don't know what the admin thinks, but I'm ok with it.

IMHO:  The more useful info the better.  The forum will serve the purpose better.

The announcement section was set up for that purpose.  Have at it.

Shouldn't you always leave them wanting more?

I thought about posting there way back when I went from the Law Offices of James D. Ivey to Ivey, Smith & Ramirez -- then again when I went back to Law Offices of James D. Ivey.  Then, the topic of shameless self-promotion has been coming up elsewhere, so the topic was on my mind.

Yes, a few things are in the works.  But you know how it takes forever for anything to happen in this business.  

Regards.
