It is a myth that people do not consume long content. They do—but only if it is engaging. “Gone with the Wind,” originally released in movie theaters in 1939, is the highest-grossing film of all time.

After all, when lawyers want to demonstrate that they are thought leaders in a particular area of the law, they have to come with the goods. Their analysis…
It is a myth that people will not consume long content. But in order for them to consume YOUR long thought-leadership marketing content, you need to make sure your content engages them in three particular ways. Let’s get this out of the way. It is a myth that people don’t consume long content. Actually, it isn’t just a myth. It’s balderdash. Bunk. Drivel. Malarkey. Nonsense. Poppycock. Pure applesauce. People will consume content they’re interested in…

The biggest mistake attorneys make when they craft headlines and email subject lines for their blog posts, bylined articles, and client alerts?
