Q. Ek is 'n Afrikaanse Prokureur - hoe sal die werf my help?

A. Jy is welkom om jou besonderhede in Afrikaans te lys (baie ander het dit alreeds gedoen). Ons is besig om 'n taal soek filter in die toekoms aan te skaf en ook 'n spieëlbergwerf vir die prokureur in Afrikaans te begin (met geen ekstra subskripsie koste nie).

A. You can unsubscribe at any time after one month's written notice.

Q.Our firm has already invested in a website and we have been disappointed with the response. Why should FindanAttorney be different?

A. Most people (including many website designers that develope individual websites for clients) grossly underestimate the time, expertise and resources required to successfully market a website. It is a full-time, ongoing job. They also do not realise that Website construction and Website marketing are two completely different fields which website developers usually do not have the capacity to execute. Nevertheless, if you do have a website our internal statistics have shown that click-throughs from your listing on our site to your website are substantial (justifying your investment in your own website).

 

Q. Won't certain attorneys always appear at the top of the list on the initial search results page?

A. No, we have an algorithm in place which orders the list in a totally random fashion so that every attorney has the chance to be at the top of the list.

 

Q.How do I make changes to my profile once listed?

A. You log directly into your profile using the "Login" link at the top of the left menu bar using the Username and Password you selected at the time that you applied to join. If you experience any problems, please email us.

 

Q. As more and more attorneys are listed - won't my listing get lost amidst the crowds?

A. We aim to limit the number of attorneys that appear on the initial search results page. This will be monitored on an ongoing basis and achieved through the application of a series of progressive filters. We have specifically not broken the dial code area in the main search into suburbs, as we do not believe that choosing the attorney down the road is necessarily the best way to find the most suitable attorney. Bear in mind too, that in a traditional directory where all that is supplied is a name and number, a large selection of attorneys is much more of a problem. Our attorneys can be easily differentiated according to their offerings by the astute web visitor.

 

Q. Our firm employs several attorneys - how do we list?

A. We have tried to give this website a very personalised flavour. People want to deal with people, not corporations. Every attorney is therefore listed individually. However, the "employer" field for all your attorneys will contain your company name and if you have a website there will be a link to it from every employee. On each individuals page there will also be a "Other Attorneys in Firm" section which will link through to the other members of the firm. We do offer group discounts though, so contact us for a detailed quote. Bear in mind too that as searches go by individual attorneys, the more attorneys - the more exposure. Alternatively you may decide to list only one or two of your key people.

 

Q. Do I have to have a photograph?

A. Photographs are optional, but we believe that it is in your best interests to have one. If you wish we can load your company logo instead of a personal photo.

 

Q. How do you market the website?

A. We market the website through a comprehensive multi-layered strategy:

  • Our experience with our two sister websites FindanAdvisor.co.za and FindanAccountant.co.za has shown that the sites generate a lot of cross traffic to each other. The other 2 sites are well established, high traffic sites and this will benefit FindanAttorney considerably.
  • On-line advertising in several prime niche positions.
  • National press advertising (print and radio).
  • Comprehensive publicity campaign(publicity already achieved: Features in Sunday Times, Men's Health, Personal Finance Magazine read article, Die Burger, Femina and Cosmopolitan. Numerous websites have also featured our story, including the Proudly South African website who decided on their own accord to put us on their front page as an example of South African innovation. Radio 702 and Cape Talk have interviewed us comprehensively on air.
  • Ongoing Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). We are employing top consultants to assist in this regard.
  • Keyword sponsorship.
