When you need assistance with a problem at work, you typically ask someone for help, but what if there is no one around to ask or no one knows the answer to the question you have? 24Sessions provides an online network for those looking for expert advice in the business industry.
At 24Sessions, users can sign up and search for experts to video chat with in eight different fields: Marketing, Legal, Tech, Financial, Strategies, Sales, Coaching and Training, and Other. Within those fields, there are countless tags such as CRM, Social Media Marketing, Personal Branding, and Networking. Experts are searchable by topics, tags, language, or the users can send out a general request for an expert. To book a session, users simply click on an expert and hit “book me!” 24Sessions also offers practice sessions for users test out the service. Signing up for 24Sessions is free! Experts have the option to charge by the hour for their sessions, but 50% of the 269 experts on the site offer free session . Currently, the most expensive experts charge 250 Euros, or about 345 US Dollars.
Anyone can sign up as an expert on 24Sessions. The website does not look into proof that you are an expert in what you are claiming unless you receive a negative review, in which case it is possible to be kicked off the site. It is encouraged for you to link to a website or provide a short description explaining why you are an expert to those looking for help. You can set your own fee per hour and you can empty your 24Sessions account into your own bank account after making 50 Euros. Again, there is no fee to join the site, but 24Sessions takes a 15% commission from your account. So whether you’re an expert and wants to share your knowledge or a green entrepreneur looking to get an advice from one, 24Sessions is here to make the connection.
