New York, NY (PRWEB) October 26, 2010
Betterfly (http://betterfly.com)], a website that helps people find tutors, trainers and other individual providers of self-improvement services, has been named one of “The 9 Best Job Sites on the Web” by MainStreet.com, a leading financial news portal powered by TheStreet. The ranking praised Betterfly for helping people find work as well as helping consumers better themselves in many different categories.
“To be included alongside well-established job search sites like CareerBuilder.com, Indeed.com, SimplyHired, LinkedIn and TheLadders demonstrates that we are filling a critical need in the market: helping freelancers and company employees in the betterment space build a clientele,” said Joshua Schwadron, founder of Betterfly. ”We offer tools for these people to take their career into their own hands, even if they’re just getting started.”
Tutors, trainers, stylists, coaches and other service providers can build a dynamic online presence through customizable Betterfly pages that actively promote their services across the web. Detailed information on each service provider makes it possible for users to search by highly specific criteria, receive more relevant search results, and zero in on the best match for their needs.
Unlike Yelp or Citysearch, Betterfly focuses exclusively on the actual people who provide the services, rather than schools, salons, studios and other businesses. "When looking for someone to teach you Spanish, give you a massage or improve your yoga technique, it’s more important to know the person providing the service than the business they work for,” Schwadron noted. “That’s why our site offers benefits for consumers as well as for those looking for clients.”
Betterfly offers free listings for individuals offering self-improvement services ranging from coaching and cooking to training and tutoring. Consumers can use the site to find the best people — not companies — in more than 1,000 self-betterment categories. Service providers can use the site to market themselves and manage their business. Betterfly is based in New York, NY. For more information, visit http://betterfly.com.
