The Learning Curve

New tricks for an old dog.

Selling your expert advice – online options

I’ve identified several different providers of pay per call technology.

1. AT&T Group:

Ingenio Live Advice

– Keen Personal Advisor


2. Kasamba (soon to change its name to LivePerson)

3. BitWine

There may be others, but these look to be the major players in this market. My next step it to dissect them, poke them, prod them, and see how they work.

  1. Hey, any luck on what you have found out by dissecting and poking the above sites around, have you had time to find any pro’s and con’s to them yet, etc?

    Would love to hear what you have found out if anything!

    God bless

  2. Hi –

    I’ve written or collected information in a few other posts on this subject. Links to the posts are collected here:

    Advice business.

    My partner Carmen is an ordained minister and teacher, so I have been working with her to actually build a business offering spiritual counsel by phone, here:

    End Painful Cycles & Begin Anew

    I selected for this because of its established user base and the wide variety of marketing tools it offers. Keen’s basic fee structure is not the best, but I think that the earning potential through its referral and affiliate programs more than make up for it.

    We have just spent three months learning the inner workings of, the type of people one is likely to encounter as callers, and the various problems and misunderstandings that can happen. The next phase, starting right now, is refining the offer and marketing outside of the existing Keen community.

    I’ll be writing about it again sometime, but actually making it work has priority.
