How many times have you found a business on an online directory only to discover that the number is disconnected and the web url broken? How often do you get so caught up in reading consumer reviews that you didn't notice that the company you're reading about doesn't even serve your location? What about the countless times you've been sent to voice-mail, waited ages for a response to an email inquiry, or called three or four companies before finding someone who will help you? You're not alone.
There's a gaping disconnect between consumers and businesses. Consumers are quick to adopt new technology and typically research businesses online. Businesses, meanwhile, are spending very little on digital marketing and are still relying on word of mouth and inbound calls to get work. Luckily, there's TalkLocal- a smart local services marketplace that essentially converts online service requests to inbound calls to top rated matching pros who are available to respond in real time and do the job on your schedule.
With TalkLocal, consumers simply enter their job details, location, and phone number. Then TalkLocal's algorithm filters through area businesses and sends a lead preview to the top businesses based on location, job preferences, availability, and consumer reviews. Once a business opts into a call, we patch them through to the customer using Voice Over IP. Consumers typically hear from the first pro in about 90 seconds with a national average of 4 minutes for cities we haven't yet launched in. And, we never share consumer contact information.
The app features: - GPS enabled search to find pros "near you" - Voice recorded job details submission option - Auto-populate and profile settings - VoIP for consumer privacy The app is available for free on iOS and Google Play.
