Website helps people find and talk to the next generation of talents.

| June 1, 2010

San Francisco – Talk2pros announced the launch of its new search engine, the first online destination for individual professionals to connect with clients and peers. Talk2pros aims to empower individual professionals to share their knowledge and services with the world, showcasing talented people and their craft.

"The ability to instantly connect with people has opened a world of opportunity for independent professionals, in both growing their professional network and in getting found by searching consumers." said Peter Kim, co-founder of talk2pros. "Whether it's a writer, chef or yoga instructor, these pros have a great deal of pride in their work and an expertise that people want to find."

Green industry professionals who sign up with talk2pros can upload images, list their services, talk to potential clients, and network with professionals in and out of the industry. The platform is designed to index these profiles in search and social media, ultimately acting as the technology partner that lowers cost to do business as an independent.

“The new generation of independent pros have difficulty finding appropriate avenues to market themselves, and we are bringing them together in one consumer destination where people can easily search, view and talk to them,” says co-founder Michael Quoc. “An open platform that streamlines communication between the clients and the professionals helps save time in finding the right match."

Talk2pros is currently recruiting its national network of top professionals, but is also working on the website's future expansions, focusing on improving the search experience.
