Like the title says, have you guys heard about this at all?

Curious to hear people's thoughts here regarding this as it sounds pretty interesting.

    Nope but looks interesting. I signed up but waiting for access. They said they have just been aquired by Google.

    Does anyone else have any thoughts regarding TalkBin? I could see this making mobile a lot more interesting...maybe not though.

      Just found this "real world" example photograph on a blog:

      Google’s TalkBin CRM Tool in the Wild

      Also another video explaining it briefly:

      And a success story:

      I figured Google was looking for a way to solve one of small businesses' MAIN "marketing issues", and thus, an offline marketer's main issue: EFFICIENTLY AND COST-EFFECTIVELY STREAMLINING CUSTOMER FEEDBACK.

      If Google can get this "direct, quick, anonymous feedback" platform out there like they have been doing with boost, etc (and not just in the typical techno-progressive areas like the NW and California), I don't see how the majority of third-party "review solutions" will be able to hold a candle to Google's "ease of use", trust, brand awareness, etc.

      Of course, the issue I then think about is people gaming the system...but it looks like they've got some protections in place by the sounds of it. I'm wondering how they handle it, just assigning different numbers for different questions, testimonials....

      Who wants to register on 3rd party sites, fill out several fields of info confirm e-mails, etc just to write/text "You guys are doing a great job! I come to Derral's Auto whenever my car is acting up, and I always get treated right and quoted with a fair price!"?

      Time will tell I guess, but it is nice to see Google is being proactive and really going after the stuff that most SMB's are struggling with.

    Hello. I want to be successful internet marketer. I have the zeal and passion to achieve this aim. But what restricting me to do this is money. As heading of my post says you would know that am from India. If you compare price of dollar with India Rupee its somewhere around $1=Rs. 66 which is increasing day by day. My budget would be $100/month which is equal to Rs. 6600. This is maximum I can spend. I dont have high paying job and also I have to pay rent, bills, etc. I need to pay for domain, hosting, bing ads, fb ads, landing page and so on. I know there are free methods too but as you say free methods take time to show result.

    Have a very special client. I like to call him the Sheikh. He does not mind. In return, he says that I am a Petrol Writer. This client is generous when it comes to pricing and payments. I have never been greedy. Just like Tom Cruise used to say in the Oblivion: We are an effective team! This gentleman is born and raised in Kuwait. He earned his degree in some prestigious London business school. Yet, when it comes to the business culture, he obviously follows the region of his origin. We do not discuss the price. We do not negotiate. Never. He orders the work. I deliver. Then, he asks how much needs to be paid. I get my money. That is it. Smooth and simple. For what is worth, so far, we have worked only on relatively small projects. Until recently. This was a client only to wish for. Guess, it is not only in my nature, but I was not quite satisfied. I wished we could do some more work. And, you know what happens when you wish for something. It happens to you, but not exactly the way you wanted to get it. So, one fine day, the Sheikh approached me with an unusual proposal. Like I passed all the test, and the time has come for the real thing. What he had on his mind was a book about his personal and professional journey, somewhere around 200 to 300 pages. A brand new website. We are talking about a few dozen pages at least. Then, there was a package of 30 blogs, give it or take. He also needed some scripts for promotion videos, but he was not quite sure how many of them.
