Talk Fusion: What Don’t They Have?

When discussing Talk Fusion, there is a lot to talk about and a lot to like with the company. First and foremost, they have the best video services on the planet. When it comes to video newsletters, this is something that is really taking the world by storm in so many ways. It can be hard to get a lot of people in the room at the same time. As a matter of fact, it can be next to impossible with certain people’s schedules. It is why Talk Fusion is there with video conferences to make sure everyone is heard, seen, and understood. It is crystal clear video too, as a matter of fact. It brings everything into focus, even the important facial reactions. Those allow for people to really see what someone is thinking and feeling, which is very important when running a business.

Video emails are a great way to say a lot to someone without having to type it all up. I don’t know about you, but I tend to talk faster than I type, which is saying something because I feel like I can type a lot over a period of time. However, with video emails, people that want to get into your business and jump on board can really get into it by seeing a video email of you and seeing and hearing your enthusiasm for your business. As they say, if you are not excited about it, why should anyone else be? People will see how excited you are about it, and it will rub off on them. It is infectious to say the least.

Right now, those two features along with video chats and video conferences are some of the great things that Talk Fusion is offering. This is in addition to the 30-day free trials for new customers (http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/video-marketing-leader-talk-fusion-launches-30-day-free-trials-300249666.html). They get to see all of the perks and all of the benefits without any of the risk. Once they stick with Talk Fusion and pay for it, they will see it is a great deal that pays for itself and then some.

 

Handy Provides a Winning Service

Finding a cleaning service is not an easy task, and the average homeowner has numerous reservations about asking a stranger to come into their home on a regular basis. Honesty, integrity, professionalism, and a willingness to do a good job are traits that any employer wants in an employee. For busy homeowners with a job and children, there is not enough time to find competent people to provide needed cleaning services. A relatively new company has changed all of that by providing a convenient way in selecting a cleaning service. That company is Handy Home Cleaning Service.

The company began in 2012, when two Harvard Students shared a dorm room, a messy dorm room. Oisin Hanrahan and Umang Dua were throwing out ideas for startup companies for themselves. This brainstorming took place in the midst of their messy room. Their mess and disorder provided the inspiration for what would become a very profitable company. If they needed help with cleaning, then so did thousands of other people. However, their company took an innovative twist.

Hanrahan and Dua knew they had a great idea but decided to do something a little different by providing customers with an app and a website. With a tap of the finger, customers could enter their zip code, the number of rooms needing cleaning, and the start time. In return, Handy set up the appointment with an employee and the customer got a price quote upfront and knew exactly what their fee would be. In addition, customers knew that the work will be done by a Handy employee or freelancer who had been thoroughly screened with background checks, reference checks, and a personal interview. The customer’s worries about dependable, trustworthy cleaners was eliminated. Although thousands of people have applied to work for Handy app on Crunchbase, only 3% have been accepted.

It is a winning opportunity for both the customer and the employee. The customer enjoys the ease and convenience in selecting reliable, trustworthy service. The employee has dependable pay and flexible hours. No more payments under the table with no 1099’s at the end of the year. Handy takes care of all payments, payroll, and scheduling.

In three short years, Handy Home Cleaning Services has enjoyed a rapid growth and expanded to include plumbing and handyman services. Sales have grown each month, as much as 60% over one three month period. Currently, it operates in 25 cities in the United States and two in Canada. It has several employees and thousands of freelancers that can supply the 10,000 job requests each month. Plans are in the works to expand to other cities.

According to Hanrahan, “Our vision is not to build just a cleaning company, but a brand that takes care of your home.” Finding a need and filling it is something that Hanrahan and Dua have done well. By combining technological advances with providing dependable and trustworthy service for customers and employees alike, all of them are winners.
