One more thing–I notice this is from August 2008 – do you have current stats on this?

Brian – I am conducting a “Build your Network–Foundations of Business Development” training program for a law firm in Ohio later this month. I would like to quote this statistic — and also share the best practices of profiles from another post. Can you tell me if there is a cost to add photos, telephone numbers, email addresses, etc. to lawyer profiles? I’m sure it depends on the contract – perhaps we could email about it offline? Deborah
