The aim of this section is to exchange services on a win-win basis. A publisher (of news, blogs, articles, reports, journals etc.) can publicise the media request for firsthand knowledge or expert opinion. The intelligence can then be used in the publication. On the other hand, the expert can gain publicity when he/she is cited in the publication.

Publishing companies and researchers are encouraged to use this option to search for firsthand knowledge/experience.

To be an authority, it is quite crucial to have the name/brand out there in the news or in the relevant trade journals.
This is an ideal service for companies where they occasionally need experts to help them in their projects. Most crowdsourcing marketplace, freelancing sites and learning membership platforms cost money and time. Some membership sites cost fortunes to get access to freelancers and in returns, consultants are paid very little.

We want to bring transparency to the expert network industry. We provide the opportunity to both experts and clients to directly contact each other without a middle party. Both can verify each other and do the vetting process for the project.

Therefore, it is quite important for both parties to build trust and authenticity.
