Businesses spend so much money trying to connect with consumers. Consumers spend so much time trying to connect with businesses. TalkLocal removes those barriers.
Plano, Texas (PRWEB) November 07, 2014
talklocal is launching in Plano, Texas to connect consumers to the right service professionals by phone in about 90 seconds. In a city once named one of Forbes “Top Suburbs For Living Well”, the local services marketplace will bring time-saving convenience for residents facing everyday challenges like home renovations, help with broken heating and cooling systems, and car repair.
TalkLocal matches and connects live professionals to live consumers in about 90 seconds - at least 50x faster than other local services marketplaces out there, according to the TalkLocal team’s own research.
The service was founded by a small business owner whose phone lines were inundated with frustrated consumers who were calling 3 or 4 companies before finding the professional who matched their needs.
To hear from an available service professional in about 90 seconds, consumers follow only 3 simple steps:
1) Enter location, availability, and service details at http://www.talklocal.com.
2) Standby as TalkLocal's algorithm rapidly filters through the city’s thousands of businesses, finding the best match based on…
- Online consumer ratings/reviews
- Social media interactions
- Call analytics
3) Pick up the phone to talk to a local pro who knows the problem and wants to help on the consumer's schedule.
Free to consumers, member businesses get a free preview of each matching job and only pay a small flat rate when they opt-in and talk to an actively searching customer.
In over 50 service categories like roofing, cleaning services and heating & cooling, TalkLocal takes the hassle out of finding the right local professionals.
For privacy, consumer contact info is not shared, sold, or visible on phone records or caller IDs. TalkLocal conversations occur over a secure line. Consumers decide whether and when to provide their contact information to a business.
“Businesses spend so much money trying to connect with consumers. Consumers spend so much time trying to connect with businesses. TalkLocal removes those barriers” said TalkLocal founder and small business owner Gurpreet Singh.
TalkLocal raised $3.9 million in venture funding, has served in 49 states and recently marked its one-millionth service request call. Connect on Facebook and Twitter.
