FiLife Gives Users Private Answers to Financial Questions

NEW YORK, Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- FiLife.com (www.filife.com), the leading personal finance question and answer site, introduced a fee-based "private question" feature that allows users to get confidential and direct answers to their specific financial questions.

The introductory price for asking a private question will be $10.00.

The answers are supplied by FiLife's community of experts, including financial professionals (Certified Financial Planners(TM)), experts, writers and members with real world experience in overcoming personal finance challenges. Questions range from "How can I improve my credit report?" to "Why are people comparing the current U.S. recession to the Great Depression?" FiLife is the #3 personal finance site, with over 4 million monthly unique visitors.*

"The number of people asking questions for free to the open FiLife.com community continues to grow. However, there are those who want to divulge specific financial information and are uncomfortable doing so publicly," said Ezra Kucharz, President of FiLife. "This new feature gives them the opportunity to ask confidential questions directly to an expert."

FiLife's open API allows third-party publishers to offer their users access to FiLife's question and answer experience. FiLife will provide certain publishers with a share of the revenue generated by the private question micro-transactions.

The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
