lawyer’s professional background, a photo, and subpages where the lawyer can shamelessly brag
about:
  l verdicts, summary judgments, settlements, large transactions and client testimonials

  l speaking engagements and publications that can be retrieved as a PDF from the profile page; and

  l firm specific information - like a firm’s diversity policy or other practice areas and success stories –

    this is where the firm’s brand is highlighted amongst the lawyer’s achievement

Blogs BC blogs allow subscribing lawyers to establish themselves as reliable, helpful authorities on
particular legal subject matters. For lawyers and law firms, achieving this level of recognition builds
loyalty among visitors and is critical to successful online marketing.

will feature short articles and breaking legal news stories about recent law suits, verdicts, settlements
or major transactions by and for African-Americans. Articles regarding changes in the law will allow the
lawyer to highlight their knowledge and experience in a practice area, while reminding their customer
that they are ready and able to handle their next matter. We seek submissions from lawyers. Please
contact submissions@BlackCounselorOnline.com.

less write-up that allows the lawyer another chance to get infront of the 56,000 users and
decision-makers. Submissions are due on the 15th of the month. When you have a new lawyer join
your organization, provide the announcement to BC to produce a press release that will be distributed
to major news outlets, and featured on the Lawyers On the Move section of the website.

Connectivity
BC Connects You With Prospective Clients!
Internet visibility is just half the battle - these enhanced marketing tools will connect your lawyers with key decision-makers:

    Infomercials Online video is quickly replacing TV ads as a less expensive means to reach the millions of internet users. Our
    professionally produced videos will highlight your lawyers greatest asset – practice area knowledge – in two distinct formats that
    will connect your lawyer with a decision-maker. Infomercials are produced either in:
          an interview format - where the lawyer is interviewed by a BC host, which gives prestige and credibility to the lawyer who will
          discuss a relevant practice issue in the interview; or
          a teaching format - wherein the lawyer gives a 5 minute mini-lecture on an issue in their practice area

    Both formats allow the lawyer to demonstrate their expertise and management style while connecting with valued clients
    searching the internet for their services. BC offers affordable productions that are less than our competitors. Content is produced
    by the client, unless the BC Professional Services Team is requested to produce content.

    Webinars Lawyers can host and lead out in webinars specifically tailored to meet the needs of in-house counsel, government
    decision-makers or target consumer groups who will receive special invites that include the lawyers bio and presentation
    materials. The webinar is free to the end user and offered at a inexpensive rate to the host lawyer – all webinars will be listed in
    the news and events section of www.BlackCounselorOnline.com and can be hosted weekly, monthly or annually.

    BC Events Coming soon! In third-quarter 2010, BC will host the GC Summit –where over 20 African-American general counsels
    will be invited to produce the GC Summit webcast on a hot topic selected by the GC’s. Only BC subscribers will be invited to
    attend this annual event to connect with these decision-makers!

    Webcasts These specially produced TV webcast series are titled The BC Advocates Report and The BC Business Law Review –
    which are shows that can feature your lawyer and a prospective client in an exposé on a hot topic, issue or event that the
    African-American community nationwide wants to view. You provide BC with the name of the potential client, and BC will
    arrange an interview and produce the professionally prepared content to air a webcast that viewers will view time and time again.

    Practice Groups Coming October 2009! – Subscribers will have the ability to join practice groups to connect with African-
    American lawyers that practice in a given area. As a group member, you can share experiences, research, templates,
    successes, and share a database of documents that are private to your group - all at a low additional subscription fee.



Lead Generation Through Market Intelligence!
Through its specialty pages and user search tracking services, BC will gain market intelligence from your prospective corporate clients
or consumer clients. Every search for a lawyer on BC is tracked and a monthly report is generated to summarize the top practice
areas that are searched by users that will be featured in a short news article on the homepage.

Legal Department Surveys: Knowing what your prospective client needs and when they need it, is half the battle in landing a new
engagement. BC takes the guesswork out of the process! BC will perform bi-monthly surveys of corporate legal departments and
government subscribers to identify novel or hot issues for which those decision- makers need assistance. BC will share the results of
the survey (without identifying the decision-maker) with all BC out-side counsel subscribers, so that subscribing members can pro-
duce and submit an article that directly addresses the issue. The article will be featured on the In-House Executive Page or Govern-
ment Lawyer Page and e-mailed directly to the decision-maker who requested the information. This high impact marketing tool is
almost guaranteed to result in lead generation. Participating lawyers can been seen as knowledge leaders and crisis managers when
they respond to such requests, while developing a business relationship that is based on confidence – the key ingredient in business
development.

Consumer Surveys: Your clients may not be corporate legal departments, but instead you want to increase your con-
sumer client base. BC can create consumer surveys that will produce market intelligence for your firm to target con-
sumers based on their immediate legal need. Monthly, BC will survey its consumer subscribers to identify their
immediate legal needs in order to generate leads.
Optimizing Your Visibility
Besides performing extensive search engine optimization for the BC website to keep it as the #1 website for locating African-American
lawyers, Black Counselor will market and advertise the website and provide additional services to ensure we meet our internet traffic
expectations.

Marketing The Website: BC has committed to spending approximately 15% of its revenues on marketing and branding its services
and subscribers to its end user corporate legal departments, key government entities and leaders and the 30 million African-American
