Think how much time you'll save and how much more effective you'll be when you get the information you need when you need it.
Answers start at $10.
It's risk free to try. You don't have to pay if you don't like your answer.
Here are three ways you can ask a question right now:
Here's an example of an actual question & answer session using Facebook Messenger. It takes you through the entire process of accessing Probot through Messenger and asking the question. The Slack and Web versions are a little different, but the idea is the same.
The user who asked the question rated it as excellent and it was all done with very little effort by the user...
In the past if you wanted to ask this sort of question it would have been a long complicated process that took a lot of your time. You would have had to search for an expert to ask and that's usually the hardest part, just finding the right person.
Then you would have to schedule a time to talk.
Then you would need to actually meet. And if there were any follow up questions this whole process would need to be repeated.
Then you would have to figure out how to settle the bill.
Think how much time you'll save and think how much more effective you'll be when you get the information you need when you need it.
On Facebook Messenger answers are at an introductory price of $10. You get a quality answer that best fits with Messenger.
On the Web and on Slack there are three types of answers you can ask for: quick, complete, and indepth.
If you think the answer to your question sucks then you don't have to pay. If it later turns out the answer is wrong your money will be refunded. If your Pro can't answer your question there's no charge. If a question can be answered at a lower rate that's all you'll be charged. Guaranteed.

Probot doesn't have a dramatic origin story. No spider bites. No particle beams. It started out long ago in an Internet far far away as a website called BizTaxTalk. People would drop by, ask all kinds of questions, and receive excellent answers to very personal and specifc questions. BizTaxTalk helped a lot of people.
Probot just takes it to another level.
