Hello everyone, finally the time has come for me to share my work on Ning. I have spent many sleepless nights working on this - I have even given up at times but convinced myself to come back to the site and continue. This obviously is not a one man project, I have worked with very smart developers and designers from this site and outside Creators for the more grueling coding and development. Check us out here - www.consultoclock.com
Consult O'clock is a social network for business professionals with the added functionality of 'Jobs' (check out the tab on my network).
Consult O'clock Jobs (http://consultoclock.com/jobs) is a global online employment platform. Clients can hire independent consultants and use our communities and resources to share, learn and collaborate. Consultants use the social network features to create online profiles and portfolios, submit proposals for jobs, and collaborate and receive payment through the Consult O'clock website for projects they have worked on.
I would appreciate any and all feedback. Also, if you would like to register and play around - even try out the 'bidding' functionality of our Jobs page, go ahead and register, I will approve with no hesitation.
Hadi, love what you're doing in the business space with this.
Thanks Jeff. Feel free to join if my site can help you professionally in any way.
Thanks. Having looked at it before from a design perspective, I will take a look at the substance of it now!
I love your website Hadi, just 1 question, how did you put the Give Feed Back floating bar on your site.. this would be great for my sight would you consider sharing how you did this :-)
Hi Dave - thanks for your comment. For the Give Feedback, there are many sites that allow you to add a button free of charge. For my site I use http://www.webreep.com/ easy to configure and you can ask multiple questions in a form and customise the button. Check it out.
Thank you very much Hadi :-) and once again your site looks Fantastic :-)
i like it, very professionally done, especially the advert. let me add my 2 marketing cents (even if my opinions are normally getting harassed here)
basically in the very populated online business networking world, it is very imporatnt for a new site to have a niche. my advise would be to change 'social network for business professionals' in to a different (more niche) headline , like 'business platform for consulting professionals', 'professional consulting network' or so on.
what i mean, that is 'business' not generally consist of the consulting only, there is financing, marketing, execution etc
Hi HELP SEEKER, thanks for your input. I honestly think your marketing comment was good. I have been back and forth on the niche and the name of the site - overall I honestly think I want to target all business professionals (consultants and clients in any area of business). The niche I have here is that in addition to the social networking feature of sharing, collaborating and learning I give clients the ability to post their project requirements on my site and consultants the ability to bid on projects and make some extra cash through my application. If I limit my website to just consultants - I can easily lose the job bidding feature if my members are all consultants.
Hadi, nice website, very clean and straight to the point.
which tool are you using for the jobs section?
