We offer a paid listing for which you can pay for three months so you can decide weather the listing is generating sufficient new business. The cost is $90.00 plus GST/HST for each area of practice. There is no refund. When the listing proves its worth, you can convert it to 12 months. If you decide to cancel the 12 month listing you will receive a full refund for all full unused months. The three month listings cannot be renewed. You will either let the listing lapse or renew by taking a 12 month listing.
Three month paid listings will rank ahead of free listings. When you convert to a 12 month listing all free listings for your area of practice and city will be removed.

How to tell if the website you are contemplating
The sad truth is that many websites simply lie about the results you will get if you list with them. It is easy for them to use hyperbole such as: "Fantastic results"; "Dominate your market"; "Generate more new leads than yellow pages" etc.
Here is how to do some research so you can minimize your risk:
Does the site allow you to pay on a monthly basis or cancel a listing at any time if you are not satisfied? If it does, this is a good sign that the website operators are confident that you will be satisfied with the results and stay with them.
Do some key word searches that are relevant to your industry. For example, a law site might search on "Canadian law". Where does the site in question rank? If it is not on the first page then the chances of you getting any business is poor.
Say you do the search on "Canadian law" and the site does rank on the 1st page. Ask yourself, "How easy will it be for people searching for a lawyer to find my firm?"
Ask yourself the following questions:
Is the site professional looking?
Is the site easy to navigate?
Is there valuable content on the website?
If I were looking for a lawyer would I trust this site?
Does the website offer more than just lawyer listings?
"page views per user". Is the trend up or down? One of the best measures of how relevant and useful users find a site is how long they stay on the site. Website surfers are notorious for clicking on a site, having a quick look and then clicking away. The higher the number of page views per user the more interesting and valuable the site;
Time on the site - According to Alexa.com (October, 2010) The time spent in a typical visit to the Canadian Law Site is roughly eight minutes, with 59 seconds spent on each pageview. This is an extraordinarily long time in the Internet world, where web surfers are notorious for their short attention spans.
