TIPS FOR EXPERTS

Your Expert listing allows your clients to learn about your qualifications and experience, your fees, and to view any other relevant information that you wish to share with them. Having a good Expertise description is the most important factor in getting clients to contact you.

  • Choose the category and the subcategory that match the most your expertise.
  • Choose the language appropriately. Your listing will be displayed to your prospective clients according to the language of their choice. A user who is browsing ASKOOL's site in English will only see listings written in English. If you are fluent in many languages, you should create a listing for each of them (for now, ASKOOL is only providing an English and French version of its site, but other languages will come soon). Of course, if you select English for your listing, the information contained in it has to be in English, and you must be able to provide your service in English.
  • Give an attractive title to the service you are offering.
  • Write a clear Expertise description. It will appear next to your name when clients are browsing through your category. Allow clients to identify your strengths rapidly, and tell them why they should call you.
  • Be sure that all your Expert information matches the category in which it appears. You can create a unique listing for each category where you have expertise.
  • Indicate keywords that are related to your Expertise. Members will be able to make a keyword search to find the Expertise they are looking for.
  • Add a picture to your Expert profile! Listings with a picture attract more visitors. You can upload an image from your computer (follow the link "Add / Change picture" in the “Expert Office” section of My ASKOOL). You can also link to images that are located on another server by pasting the URL of that image into the Expertise description field (if you are familiar with html coding). To edit your listing/s, go to your Expert Office.

Promote yourself with your ASKOOL listing!

  • Let your friends and colleagues know that you are now offering your professional services online, and encourage them to pass on the word.
  • Attach a link to your "ASKOOL listing" in all your emails and on your website, if you have one. The link is available in the “Link for my site” section of your Expert Office” in MY ASKOOL.
  • Answer questions on the Forum regularly. Build a reputation and a clientele.
  • Appearing "Ready" tends to increase your business as an Expert. If you use the Internet regularly, you may want to include in your listing and/or your Member page the time zone and the hours that you are normally online.

You are not allowed to show, in your listings or on your personal page, your email address, phone number and other personal information or to indicate the address or name of other websites. For more information, please read our Member Agreement.

If you know someone who may benefit from knowing about ASKOOL, please take a moment to tell them about us.
