54% of small businesses in Ohio don’t have websites, but rather than teach them about digital marketing, Seva Call connects them to consumers so that they can offer their know-how and the skills their consumers actually need
Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) May 29, 2013
Seva Call (Save-A-Call) has launched in Cleveland, Ohio. The free service finds and connects consumers to local service professionals within minutes. In North America, digital media advertising is a $40 billion dollar industry, and yet the average consumer spends about 30 minutes searching for the very companies trying so hard and spending so much to reach them.
Now, Clevelanders will be able to hear from an available service professional in 90 seconds, (rather than 30 minutes), by visiting http://www.sevacall.com, entering their location, availability, and description of the problem at hand. In minutes, Seva Call’s algorithm filters through the city’s over 10,000 businesses and picks the best matches based on proximity, availability, the job needed, and even quality control measures like online consumer ratings and reviews, social media interactions, call analytics, and other forms of consumer and business feedback. First time users are often stunned that it takes only 90 seconds to get their first call, and pleased when each local pro already knows the problem and wants to fix it on the consumer’s schedule. By using Seva Call, consumers save time and energy while finding the skilled professionals who match their schedules, service their needs, and answer their questions right away.
Of course, not only consumers, but businesses also will benefit from using Seva Call. When Seva Call receives a request from a consumer, the request is relayed to the appropriate businesses by email, phone call, or text message. Once the business receives that request, they have the opportunity to accept/reject the client based on details provided, saving valuable company time. Rex Hayden of JDI Windows raved that his first connection through Seva Call turned into an $11,000 job. Notably, businesses pay a flat rate per conversation, so Seva Call does not take a percentage of any revenue.

Seva Call connects the right small business to the right searching consumer and without compromising personal privacy, charging membership fees, or interfering with the quality customer service that small businesses are known for. That’s why over 11,000 people consider Seva Call the best way to get real-time quality connections to businesses in over 50 service categories like tree removal, dentists, and roofers.
Plus, in the near future, the Seva Call team will launch its iPhone and Android app so that customers can enjoy the same instant responsiveness to their service needs even when they are far from home. This will certainly help even more busy Cleveland residents.
Seva Call raised $1.3 million in Series-A funding last fall and has launched in 32 cities across the United States including Miami, Atlanta, Birmingham, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Columbus, and Boston. Connect on Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube.
