Clarksburg, NJ (PRWEB) September 27, 2007
The days where pay per click and pay for calls were the only options is a thing of the past. By simply claiming and registering their free business listing and profile on AskPoodle.com, small businesses can start promoting their business and get targeted online sales leads from real people with real consumer needs.
AskPoodle.com is a human-powered local yellow page directory set up for businesses to respond to customer requests for good or services. A customer first submits a search request. The search request is then routed to all the businesses that match the location and category the customer selected when submitting their search request. Businesses can then visit AskPoodle.com and respond to the customer.
AskPoodle.com uses IP telephony and open-source Asterisk to alerts businesses of matching customer requests in real-time. This gives all local businesses the opportunity to respond to matching search requests and creates a level playing field for local sales leads. Customers get price quotes and answers from local merchants that compete for their business within seconds.
With just one simple click, consumers now have the power to instantly contact all of the businesses in their local area and let them know what they need. "Now you don't have to call business after business and leave messages on different answering machines," says Luis Pereira, Founder & CEO of Ask Poodle, Inc.
Ask Poodle is currently welcoming questions from investors, the media and the IT Community.
