The launch comes almost a week after at least two tornadoes were reported to have touched down just north of the city on November 17th. Although no damage was reported following the tornadoes, Denver residents now know all too well the value of being prepared for the unexpected. Having TalkLocal is like having local pros in over 50 service categories on speed dial and knowing that they’ll always be ready to help.
TalkLocal, which was founded by the owner of a small computer repair shop who was inundated with mismatched service calls, was created as a way to match and connect businesses and consumers based on location, service need, availability, and even consumer ratings and reviews. In about 90 seconds, consumers talk to a pro who wants to help on the consumer’s schedule. That’s 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, snow removal 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.
“It’s difficult finding the right professional to get a job done, especially for people who are short on time. That’s why TalkLocal is here to make the process much easier,” said TalkLocal founder, Manpreet 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.
