Wizdiary.com official launch; interactive recruitment and client growth



I’m very pleased to say that a former crowdfunding project which I’ve been writing about for no less than three years has finally made it to launch.

Wizdiary.com is a collaboration and social media platform which aims to put companies in touch with clients or staff within a five mile radius of their address. So if you’re recruiting, you can post free job ads online to attract suitable staff in your area, whilst job seekers, freelancers and companies looking for new clients can advertise their business for free to see if anyone in their locale needs their skills.

The advantage of this is that if employee and employer want to meet over a coffee, you can easily do so. Unlike many online job markets, where a freelancer works for an anonymous buyer in another country and/or time zone, here, you have the best billboard short of a formal CV and a job interview.

Post your ads for free online with Wizdiary.com and see who comes along. A full small business help desk service team will ensure that everything runs to plan, and recruiters may just reach that elusive staff member they’ve been wanting to find for months. Equally, freelancers and small businesses may find a new regular client.

Wizdiary.com offers clever billboards with your company name, a business IT support team no matter the size of your business and the chance to reach employers and clients you might not otherwise find.

So, how to post free ads online?

Wizdiary.com’s team has posted videos in most common languages on their YouTube channel. The company aims to reach anyone and their staff or clients within 5 miles of the given address. All posters on the Billboard or Post a Job sections will also receive free small business tech support services relating to their use of the site. No matter your location, Wizdiary.com hopes to help you hook up.

Wizdiary.com is a totally different way to recruit and find clients. Companies looking for specific staff can post an ad on the Post A Job section, while businesses looking to expand can post on the Billboard section, which is almost an online version of the old style newspaper classified pages.

No matter which marketplace you are using, the Wizdiary team offers IT business support services should you run into any problems. The site does not run local services, so there is nothing to download and foul up your laptop, desktop or server. If you yourself are in the same line they are happy to see your advertisement too.

Business IT services are not the only field where Wizdiary can help recruiting levels, though. No matter who you’re looking for, whether you’re a company boss looking to expand or an individual searching for a job; Wizdiary.com may well be able to help.

I’m happy to see Wizdiary.com finally make it to launch, as they’re a new player in a very important market. In these testing economic times, businesses need to find their clients where they can, and staff need all the help available to keep the pennies rolling in. Wizdiary takes a different view of the job seeker/client expansion market, and aims to offer comprehensive free services, backed with a full support team, to help both sides to benefit.

Draw.chat free online whiteboard (etc) collaboration tool

Screengrab of draw.chat's homepage.

Draw.chat is an innovative collaborative progressive web app, or PWA, which allows users to communicate in visual drawings as well as through text chat, audio, videos and by uploading files.

Progressive web apps are technically normal web pages available through modern browsers such as Google Chrome, but they look more like something users would see on a mobile. They allow all kinds of tricks that regular web pages wouldn’t too, such as being able to draw a response in a chat window, swap files and work on a mobile as seamlessly as a PC.

Draw.chat describes itself as a free online whiteboard, but the site also allows video conferencing and text messages with offline notification. The video conferencing side allows images and files to be dragged and dropped into the chat, while the text messaging option will suit those more used to chatrooms than video conferencing.

Draw.chat is powered by Sketchpad.pro and has an extensive lexicon of keyboard shortcuts available for Windows and Mac systems, These cover all aspects of tool use, navigation and editing functions. It looks fairly simple to use, whether on the elderly Mac laptop I own or my more modern Android phone.

A meeting is initiated via the Start Meeting button available on most pages of the site. It’s as simple as that. Collaboration is easy, whether users write, draw or speak their ideas by preference. I can see this PWA appealing to the severely dyslexic people I have worked with, who were able to understand pictures much quicker than words, as well as those who prefer to speak to someone face to face and people like me who prefer words on a page.

Yes, there have been drawing apps before which have a chat element; the similarly named DrawChat or Draw Something (both 2012 releases), for instance. But this isn’t an app. It doesn’t appear in Google Play. Users simply type draw.chat into their browser and the site will load. On a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile, it looks and works the same. And unlike many apps, this PWA has a solid business purpose. It can bring together collaborators from around the world in a couple of clicks, and allow them to share ideas across different media simply and quickly, crossing boundaries of language and expression.
