What is JustAnswer?
JustAnswer.com is a question and answer website. You ask a question and you pay a certain amount to get the answer. It was created by Andy Kurtzig. Before its existence, Andy’s wife was pregnant at the time. He had a ton of questions, yet there was nobody to answer them. Due to his frustration, he decided to make this website. This allows people to get their questions answered by experts in their spare time. With close to 12,000 experts, you will be able to get your answers quickly. JustAnswer contracts experts from all places. Doctors, Lawyers, Home-Improvement Gurus, Mechanics, and Veterinarians are some examples.
How does it work?
It’s simple. You post a question, pay a fee, and then you will be matched with an expert. You will then be able to communicate with them through talk, text, voice chat. You will also be able to send the expert documents and photos to aid in your help.
You then give them a rating. If you get your question answered, that’s great. It’s what you paid for. If it doesn’t get answered or feel unsatisfied, you can ask for a refund.
As an expert, it’s as easy. You log in, find the questions you were paid with. Answer the question. Then you get paid. As I said, it’s that simple.
