Maven: Everybody Knows Something

Maven: the global knowledge marketplace - connect, consult, profit.

Maven is a global network of professionals and thought leaders who seek to connect with others to share their knowledge. Maven’s proprietary “micro-consulting” platform allows its members to profit from their knowledge by participating in paid interactions with researchers, including short Telephone Consultations and Electronic Surveys.

Did you know that you are already a consultant?

Have you given someone advice on which product or service to choose? Answered a question about how you do your job? Explained a key technical term or concept? Described an accounting standard or law in “layman’s terms”? Shared your opinion on the future of your industry?

Think about it – when was the last time a friend, colleague, customer, or other acquaintance asked you to help them to better understand a topic or to make a more informed decision? Happens all the time, right?

That’s microconsulting – short bursts of knowledge, perspective, insight, and opinion that help others make better decisions.

So, how to profit from what you know?

  1. Sign up: becoming part of Maven‘s microconsulting network is quick, easy, and free. Simply select an hourly consulting rate and describe your background and knowledge, and Maven will handle the rest. It only takes a few minutes.
  2. Consult: when you are identified as potential match for a microconsulting opportunity, you will receive a notification from Maven. If you are qualified, accept the invitation to participate in a Telephone Consultation or Electronic Survey.
  3. Earn: you will be paid for your time spent on the phone during Telephone Consultations or a flat fee for responding to an Electronic Survey.

That’s all!
