LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 2, 2012) - Rerisa (www.rerisa.com), an expertise enablement platform matching experts and expertise seekers, launches its beta site for users today. Rerisa leverages the LinkedIn ecosystem to help professionals showcase their competencies, build detailed expertise profiles and thought leadership portfolios to enhance their reputations, and find real-time "gigs" that leverage their skills. Companies and organizations needing subject matter experts, speakers, advisors, or even product testers can find the right person quickly, with the help of the site's intuitive interface and end-to-end platform.
Today, looking for experts in niche areas can be frustrating. Most people turn to their rolodex, look at relevant publications and start cold calling, or they turn to expensive expert networks that link to a set of over-used opinion leaders, reinforcing the same thoughts and opinions previously heard and used. On the other hand, experts outside the selected few who make it onto these elite lists are forced to start their own sites, blogs, and alternative ways of "advertising" their skills, hoping to be noticed by expert seekers.
Rerisa democratizes and intends to dramatically expand the expertise marketplace by helping all experts showcase the full breadth of their capabilities and interests and connecting them to exciting gigs that match their experience. Rerisa makes it easy and fun for hiring firms to find the right experts, no matter how niche the area.
Rerisa is not just a posting board, however, but an end-to-end expertise management platform that helps build detailed profiles, evaluate and award gigs, manage delivery of the work, and pay and evaluate experts. "Rerisa is more than a matchmaker. Our service enables experts and hiring firms to build their reputation and conduct business using our online communication tools including click-to-call, click-to-chat and a private message board," said Nora Iluri, founder of Rerisa. "From orators to oracles, from consultants to consumer advocates, from product testers to research experts, Rerisa is a simple and easy to use expertise management platform."
The expertise industry is estimated to generate approximately $360 million in revenues each year. This covers only the handful of traditional expert networks that work mostly with hedge funds and consulting firms. However, beyond this narrow niche, there is a need for a service that matches fresh voices and unique perspectives with companies that need them in a variety of sectors.
Any professional with areas of expertise and interest can sign up with Rerisa.com using their LinkedIn ID and create a profile. Rerisa.com is free to use and is available for both experts and hiring firms at www.Rerisa.com
Rerisa is a new expertise enablement platform that lets users list their expertise and build their reputation in order to connect with potential customers or expert seekers for expert consultations, media interviews, speaking engagements, startup reviews, focus groups, product councils and more.
