Lubbock, Texas (PRWEB) November 13, 2014
Talklocal is launching in Lubbock to connect consumers to the right service professionals by phone and in about 90 seconds. Luddock, once named one of the best places to launch a start-up, has earned a reputation for being hungry for and reception towards innovation. Now, TalkLocal is bringing innovation to the local services market to transform how Luddock residents find local professionals.
TalkLocal was founded by the owner of a small computer repair shop. Inundated with service requests that conflicted with his schedule and service offerings, he created a way to match and connect businesses and consumers in about 90 seconds - at least 50x faster than other local services marketplaces out there, according to the TalkLocal team’s own research.
To hear from an available service professional in about 90 seconds, it only takes 3 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 the right local pro, right now.
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, plumbers and heating & cooling, TalkLocal takes the hassle out of finding the right local professionals. And, consumer contact info is not shared, sold, or visible on phone records or caller IDs. TalkLocal conversations occur over a secure line to protect consumer privacy.
“Personal customer service through a search engine is really new and exciting to our customers,” said TalkLocal founder, 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.
