Some time back, a friend of mine desperately needed some advice related to IAS coaching and guidance institutes, optional subject to choose, the subjects to opt for and more. Then I realised that there is a genuine need of reliable and quick solutions to many day-to-day problems. Although professionals are there but the interactions between the information seeker & experts is not organised still. So it motivated us to create an online platform where these interactions can take place & each interaction is going to help someone realise his/her goal & solve their day to day problems without much confusion.
How is Advisome different from traditional forums or something like Quora?
We are providing verified advisors whose profile is actually a virtual office at advisome. Appointment system integration, Direct marketing of products and services via enquiry by messages/ chats. Payment system integration for consultations. It is more of one to one interaction in a virtual space with privacy maintenance.
