1: Setting up your membership: You must first create a unique user name and password in order to allow secure
access to your profile in future. Thereafter, please ensure compulsory
fields are completed. There is an optional field relating to lawyer references.
You have the potential to increase the number of times you are retained
if you are able to include the details of two lawyer references (who may be from
the same firm) in your profile - please include contact names, telephone
numbers and email if available. Alternatively, indicate that you are willing
to provide testimonials upon request. You can choose to be listed in any number
of categories, across three main headings - Medical, Non-Medical and Attorney
Support. These are not mutually exclusive.
2: Editing your profile: The information supplied in the online form is uploaded directly to the Register
and can be viewed online immediately.You can access your profile at will with your
user name and password. If either are forgotten or lost, go to the relevant link on
the Experts Login page. As can be seen, all profiles are
full-page, and can display as much
or as little information as you like. In addition, zip codes are always linked through
Google Maps, pinpointing your location for site users. Individual experts also have
qualification hyperlinks that take the user to our explanatory database.
3: If all is in order, we will register you for a period of 12 calendar months following the date that payment was made. Thereafter, you
will be able to
update or modify the profile directly and instantly, without interference from X-Pro.
4: A photograph or company logo may be uploaded electronically with the form. Experts may also
include their own web site and email details, and we will provide direct links to these in the
profile. Up to 2 postal addresses may be included per profile.Details of any further addresses
can be included in the profile details (ie under 'Expertise & Experience' or 'Career'),
but please note that these will not link through Google Maps.
5: Selected Accreditations/Affiliations: Users of the site will be reassured by the expert's membership of an
accreditation organization or professional body (American Medical Association, American Society of Mechanical Engineers, etc.).
Provide details within your profile & we will include the appropriate logo(s) & link(s).
6: OUR POLICY: Updates received from existing experts are free, as is any advertising carried out on the
experts' behalf. We don't believe in simply providing a list, and we therefore have a proactive
policy in promoting our experts which will involve regular contact with attorneys and
circulation of our newsletter.
7: Articles / Writings: Once registered, you have the option to upload your articles for inclusion
in your profile. If not in Acrobat (pdf.) format, we'll convert them for viewing by site users.
There is no charge for the inclusion of articles. You may wish to upload your CV here too.
8: Sound: For an annual supplemental fee, experts can include a short 'soundbite' which can be a very useful
marketing tool, as well as allowing you to expand upon your skills and experience. Go to the
individual sample profile to see (and hear) how this works.
Again, files are uploaded after
registration. Please note that the sound clip in our sample was studio recorded. The quality of your clip depends on the source.
We are not able to improve the quality of a clip with poor sound.
9: Video: X-Pro is the first online register worldwide to offer embedded video in experts' profiles.
Web video is a hot topic on the Internet right now & we feel that many experts will take
advantage of this exciting new facility. Click here to see what can be achieved with just
a one minute clip. Film length must be a maximum of 1½ minutes in duration (but we are flexible!)
and is uploaded to us after registration. Completed clips featuring video and/or stills are ideal.
Please remember that we're lawyers, not film makers, but we may be able to help you reduce
longer footage into something that's a little more concise. There is no charge for this
extra assistance - just email us for details. Please note that the sound clip in our sample was studio recorded. The quality of your clip
depends on the source.
We are not able to improve the quality of a clip with poor sound/film.
10: All experts are automatically subscribed to our "Callout" facility - go to our
'Contact/Help' page for further details.
If you wish to opt out of "Callout", let us know and we will unsubscribe you.
11: Fees can only be paid in $US. Annual fees appear below:
|Optional Soundbite or Video|
12: Payment can be made by using a credit or debit card through our secure
server - fast, efficient and 100% safe. Please do not send a check - we do not accept them.Registration Form
13: Your Membership: Once paid, fees are deemed non-returnable. When you initially make your payment
an annual subscription is set up on the secure server. You can check your profile hit rate at
any time online, so you can come to an informed decision as to whether X-Pro has given you value for money.
If you do nothing the subscription will renew for another 12 months, otherwise you may cancel your subscription
and the renewal will not take place.
It is for this reason that experts must make a note of their renewal date. If members take advantage of a special offer extending their membership period beyond the usual 12 months, payments may be taken before the due date but we will ensure your membership is extended for the agreed period.
14: We reserve the right to remove experts from the Register if deemed appropriate by X-Pro.
15: A note about contact / help: X-Pro is able to offer a low subscription fee to
experts because we don't employ a large staff - we simply don't have the overheads
of our competitors. We are always available to help you but prefer to do so via email.
In our experience it's a fast and efficient method of dealing with any queries you may have.
If you require one to one telephone consultations, then X-Pro is not for you.
