Frequently Asked Questions

We're here to help you solve your talent needs.

You set your budget, and pay no more than that. Your concierge consultation is free. Once you have a defined project you can post that for free. You don’t pay a dime until you pick an expert you like and begin your project.

Once you’ve picked an expert, we help you negotiate to ensure your budget aligns with the expert’s rate. Your total cost depends on the complexity of your project, the experience of your expert, and other variables, but you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 an hour. 

TalNow charges consultants a 20% service fee out of the total project budget. Once the project budget is set, there are no additional charges to clients.

The way people work is changing across the board. Companies have lighter workforces to better manage costs, and more employees want greater flexibility with where, when, how—and how often—they choose to work. The brightest minds today often work as experts-for-hire, gaining more experience solving business problems than they ever could under a single employer.

You might be able to … if you invested hundreds of hours in research and then got lucky. We assume you’re too busy for that, so we’ve done most of the work for you by rigorously screening our talent pool through interviews, skills assessments, and reference checks. For example, you MIGHT sell your old VW minivan by posting one ad. But you stand a much better chance of selling it faster and fetching a better price if you offer it through an established market that already has an infrastructure and critical mass on both sides of the transaction.

TalNow is unique because of the time and effort we put into helping you define and articulate your needs. You’ll start the process with a project outline that perfectly expresses your goals and allows us to find the best talent for you. Once we have generated a short list, you can choose an expert based on the criteria you value most.

TalNow invests time and resources into screening our business experts to ensure they are authorities in their fields. Our roster of experts includes only the brightest professionals who hold tenures from leading companies and degrees from top MBA programs. Finally, our rigorous quality assurance process ensures your satisfaction.

With our vetted experts and quality assurance platform, we sincerely doubt that will happen. But if it does, we’ll fix it. Our permanent staff will address your issue and work with you and your experts to resolve any issues, or we’ll find you a new expert at no additional cost.
