What is Araam.pk?
This online portal is a single page solution for professionals and clients. It allows the potential clients to select the type of work they need, fill in some info regarding the job, mention recommended price and get quotes and responses from professionals.
Araam.pk is specifically designed for professionals and businesses with a niche market. It provides proper visibility to the businesses and allows them to get in contact with potential customers. The best part is that these professionals do not need to setup their businesses online as Araam.pk does it for them via the portal.
The public can use online retailers, they might even get access to a few other services online but most of the day-to-day tasks or work which specifically requires a certain professional in inaccessible to them.
Customers have to thrive to find good professionals/companies but it is hard to find people who meet your exact requirements. Directories, online ads or search engines do not link you to the exact professional you are looking for and for those who know time is precious, it is a pain to spend so much on just searching.
Araam.pk solves that by allowing users to access professionals and businesses from different fields. Whether it is accounting, event planning, photography, videography, construction or lawyers, designers, IT Specialists and Marketers, you can avail their services while sitting in your home.
How it Works
The portal targets the clients and keeps its professionals/business database at the back end. The fluid design of the website is pleasing to the eye gives the professional look missing from normal business websites.
The user has to just enter the field of the professional they require and mention the area where they need the service. The field starts providing recommendations as soon as you start typing so that you can choose the right field.
Once done with the first step, the user needs to enter some details regarding the work they need done. The questions are tailor made for each category.
Select some options, fill in some blanks, enter some details, mention your budget and finally provide your contact info (for signing up).
Araam.pk will contact you with up to 5 quotes from professionals near your area. You will get an estimated price, custom response, prior experience and customer reviews of the professional on the user dashboard.
