What are the 12 steps to creating visual blogs?

1. YLR research team reviews questions received from viewers, suggested by the news media and develops questions based on the continually changing legal environment.

2. Questions developed by the research team are reviewed by the news director, and the editorial staff.

3. Selected questions are then reviewed by the YLR news anchor and recorded in the television news studio.

4. Attorneys in specific practice and geographic areas are given the opportunity to review the recorded questions to determine which they will select.

5. The attorneys, who have selected the questions they are going to answer, use the YLR provided HD webcam to record their answers.

6. They electronically send their answers to our news producer.

7. Our news producer reviews the recorded footage and instructs his team to make any adjustments to image and audio quality. The footage is then placed into the visual blog news packages.

8. The completed visual blogs are electronically sent back to the attorneys for their review.

9. Once approved by the attorneys the finished visual blogs are uploaded to the cloud server in formats suitable for their websites.

10. Their website administrators (or YLR) then places the link to the visual blogs on the designated location of the attorneys’ websites.

11. The website administrators then take any previously posted visual blogs and place them in accessible archive locations on the website.

12. Visitor traffic to the attorneys’ websites increases as a result of the visual blog news packages.

How long should my answers be?

The Your Legal Reporter visual blog system does not limit your answer in length. We find, however, that short answers with short sentences create the most attention and interest of the viewer.

Think of Your Legal Reporter visual blogs as television news interviews. News interviews are kept short – 3 minutes or less – to keep viewers watching. In Your Legal Reporter visual blog programs, Patrick Comer, a recognized television news reporter, is going to ask you a question just as he does when he interviews on television news. If you give him an answer that’s too long, he and his producer will have to edit it down before the news segment airs. This editing could lose what you regard as the most significant points. To make sure your main points get across, we suggest you answer the question as you would in a news interview for your local television station.
