1) I paid approximately $220 a month for a website through www.lawyers.com.
2) I wanted to increase my visibility as an attorney and obtain more client contacts, which I thought would be best accomplished through getting a website and a listing on ww.lawyers.com.
3) It was part of a deal with www.lawyers.com to be listed and to get a website listing that I could then edit and customize.
4) I was called by a salesperson from the company and thought that it was a good idea to obtain the website for my business.
5) Since it is the priXXXXX XXXXXsting site for attorneys, I thought it was very reputable and that a listing on the site was crucial to my success as a solo practicioner. I thought they would be good for helping with a website as well, since a lot of attorneys have websites with them.
6) Price was an important figure. I wanted to pay a low monthly amount. If it were a higher upfront charge, I probably would not have agreed to pay it.
7) I'm not really sure what this means. Online marketing is online marketing. It is important to the success of a firm.
8) I would expect to have a good website. Although I was primarily in charge of editing and creating the website, which I actually preferred.
9) I'm not looking for a firm's assistance, so I don't know how to answer this question.
10) I'd prefer that that be done via email, but only if I had expressed an interest first. If it's a random person contacting me about building a website, I'm highly unlikely to agree to a contract with that person. I'd prefer to solicit services myself.
