It’s “Moving Day”; My E-mail Address is Changing After 23 Years!

After 23 years, I’ve finally decided to change my primary email address.  You can now reach me at stephen.seckler@counseltocounsel.com.

In 1997, when the web was really starting to take off, I acquired the domain Seckler.Com. Soon after, I set up the domain CounseltoCounsel.Com.  My email address became legal@seckler.com and despite the fact that I was using CounseltoCounsel.Com for my website (and eventually Counsel to Counsel became my blog and my podcast), I’ve never used the CounseltoCounsel domain for my email address.

In truth, I’ve never really liked legal@seckler.com.  But it took a pandemic to overcome the inertia.

Making change in your business always involves an initial investment of time and energy.  While I’m pretty busy with work right now, it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be.  Most importantly, I really like the fact that my branding is now more consistent.

The C2C Podcast Now Has 10K Downloads; But the Number I Care About is 43

This month marks the 10,000th download of the Counsel to Counsel Podcast. While I’m proud to have passed that threshold and very pleased that so many lawyers are finding it useful, the number I really care about is 43.  Since launching C2C in 2018, I have interviewed 43 guests. With each recording, I have come to appreciate the great value I receive from the guests who are willing to participate.

Podcasting is similar to other forms of marketing.  Producing a podcast is a great way to highlight your expertise and to differentiate yourself in the marketplace. I have certainly gotten clients who have listened to episodes of C2C. Some of these are individuals who I already knew; but others are individuals I might never have reached.

For me, however, the greatest value in producing podcasts is that I get to learn something from the guests that I choose to interview. I choose topics that I want to learn about, and the person I interview gives me a tutorial.

How About Adding a Podcast to Your Legal Marketing Toolkit?

In the latest episode of Counsel to Counsel, I speak with Jared Correia, one of the pioneers in legal podcasting.  Jared was a huge mentor to me when I was launching the Counsel to Counsel podcast back in 2018 and I’m very pleased to welcome such a seasoned veteran.

As of 2019, over half the US population had listened to at least one podcast. In 2019 over 100 million people listened to at least one podcast every week. There are over 700,000 active podcasts and 29 million podcast episodes available.
