TalkLocal Launches in Garland, Texas to Make Small Business Digital Marketing Simpler and Smarter

Garland, Texas (PRWEB) November 18, 2014

TalkLocal is launching in Garland, Texas to connect consumers to the right service professionals by phone in about 90 seconds.

The launch of the local services marketplace is only the latest development in series of turn of the century revival efforts, including the opening of Hawaiian Falls in 2003 and the opening of a small business park called Firewheel Town Center in 2005. The transformation culminated in Garland ranking among the “Top 100 Places to Live” by CNN and Money magazine. TalkLocal’s launch will further enhance Garland’s local economy by making it simpler and more affordable for small businesses to market to and get found by the right consumers online.

TalkLocal’s founder, himself a small business owner, was inundated with service requests that conflicted with his company’s schedule and service offerings. So, he created TalkLocal to match and connect businesses and consumers in about 90 seconds – at least 50x faster than other local services marketplaces out there, based on the team’s own research.

Now, to hear from an available service professional in about 90 seconds, it only takes 3 steps:

1) Enter location, availability, and service details at

2) Standby as TalkLocal’s algorithm rapidly filters through the city’s thousands of businesses, finding the best match based on…

Online consumer ratings/reviews
Social media interactions
Call analytics

3) Pick up the phone to talk to the right local pro, right now.

Free to consumers, member businesses get a free preview of each matching job and only pay a small flat rate when they opt-in and talk to an actively searching customer.

In over 50 service categories like roofing, accountants and heating and cooling, TalkLocal takes the hassle out of finding the right local professionals. And, consumer contact info is not shared, sold, or visible on phone records or caller IDs. TalkLocal conversations occur over a secure line to protect consumer privacy.

“Local search hassles plague communities across the country and Garland is no exception. That’s why we’re here to make a great city even better,” said TalkLocal founder, Gurpreet Singh.

TalkLocal raised $ 3.9 million in venture funding to date, has served in 49 states and recently marked its one millionth service request call. Connect with TalkLocal on Facebook and Twitter.

Pixster Announces a change in the photo booth industry business model

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 18, 2014

In the past few years the events rental industry has adapted by revamping an old amusement into a must-have item at events. The photo booth rental ( trend has swept across the country. From brides to companies, party planners are scrambling to book a photo booth for their events.

In the past, photo booths have been a stationary fixture commonly found in arcades and malls. In recent years the business model has shifted to rentals. Instead of a permanent fixture, booths have been engineered to be mobile and can now be transported from event to event. Pixster, the leading photo booth rental company in San Diego (, and Orange County, attributes the shift in business model to the “selfie generation.”

“It was a natural progression. People love taking pictures of themselves at events. Why do it on your phone when you can do it with studio quality cameras and lighting?” explains owner and co-founder McLain Harvey.

Pixster has been on the forefront of the photo booth rental trend, taking early market share in Southern California. Their approach to the business model is to keep overhead low by designing and manufacturing photo booths that can fit in almost any vehicle. Their on-site hosts are able to quickly set up and tear down their booths in minutes. The open-air photo booth (!the-booth/cul3) format allows up to 15 guests to get their photos taken at once. This makes for not only a more fun experience than a traditional booth but also much more cost effective due to the reduction in required equipment.

Pixster has put the user experience at the forefront of what they do. The hardware and technology has been revamped. With on-site apps like Pixster’s social media station (!photo-booth-services/cod1), users are able to send their photos to their email accounts or upload them onto Facebook or Twitter, and consumers can share studio quality photos online with immediacy and efficiency. They also can seemingly customize everything, from photo strips and backdrops to video messaging and HD slideshows, they aim to tailor their product to whatever the consumer demands may be.

“Although the equipment and business model is new, Pixster still seems to have an old-fashioned approach to customer service. “Customer service is still what we do best.” Harvey explains, “We want to provide a seamless experience that gives our customers unique added services not typically provided by similar companies. Our on-site hosts are professionally trained and dedicated to ensuring customers have the highest quality experience.”

A recent client from a photo booth rental in Orange County commented, “We couldn’t recommend Pixster highly enough if you need a photo booth rental in Orange County (!photo-booth-rental-oc/ci5a)!”

By using innovative design and technology, Pixster is spearheading the movement to capture the attention of the “selfie generation.” And by providing a product that is not only cutting-edge, but also entertaining, inclusive and effortless for a wedding, corporate event or private party.

Celebrate and Savor Temecula Chilled December 1 through December 31 in Temecula Valley Southern California Wine Country

Temecula, CA (PRWEB) November 18, 2014

“It will be an especially magical December with Temecula Chilled,” Adams emphasized. “There will be the beauty of all the twinkling lights, the sparkle of iconic snowflakes, the grand and glorious illusions of snowfall and snow flurries, tons of real and authentic snow, the Temecula On Ice outdoor skating rink, special and unique Temecula Chilled beverages and desserts, and much more throughout the Temecula Valley. The celebration offers spectacular opportunities for loving families, great friends, and devoted couples to share festive experiences and create unique, new traditions together. The memories they’ll share will be cherished long after the days and nights of December have passed.”

Planned thus far as part of the Temecula Chilled celebration are the twinkling lights and décor that will glow along Old Town Front Street; in the vineyards and at the wineries in Temecula Valley Wine Country; from the luminous hotel tower to the festive porte-cochere at Pechanga Resort & Casino; and throughout the indoor and outdoor spaces at Promenade Temecula. Also included will be Snowbell Rockin’ Nights with musical bells, a light show, and snowfall at the Temecula Civic Center in Old Town; and The Magic Snow Flurry show at Promenade Temecula. Santa’s Electric Light Parade, the Temecula On Ice outdoor skating rink, the Holiday Taste of Old Town event, Pennypickle’s Winter Wonderland with tons of real snow, and the New Year’s Eve Grape Drop in Old Town Temecula. Promenade Temecula and Old Town Temecula will offer visits with Santa Claus; Pechanga will offer fresh-baked gingerbread houses; and quality, award-winning wine tasting in Temecula Valley Wine Country will offer opportunities to purchase favorites for personal and corporate gifts, for sharing while entertaining at home, and for pairing with holiday foods. Stage productions like the musical extravaganza A Christmas Carol and the beautiful Nutcracker ballet at Old Town Temecula Community Theater; and holiday concerts at Pechanga like the 2014 Christmas Rocks Tour with the Brian Setzer Orchestra will be featured. Highlights will also include December signature wine and live music events at the wineries, and gala New Year’s Eve celebrations in Wine Country and at Pechanga.

“Temecula Chilled encourages, friends, couples, and their visiting guests, too – to take time and make time to get away, stay, and relax and be joyful together in Temecula Valley Southern California Wine Country,” Adams said. “There will be so many festive sights, sounds, events, and activities to experience together. It means many opportunities to create wonderful new traditions together and to share lasting memories. Less-busy midweek overnight stays can be especially memorable for potential conversations with talented and gracious Temecula Valley winemakers and winemaking family members, and creative and passionate chefs, artisans, and merchants. Meanwhile, resorts’, hotels’, and motels’ special, better-than-weekend, Sunday-through-Thursday, nightly room rates can mean savings that become additional resources for purchases of Temecula Valley goodness and greatness, and for enjoying more Temecula Chilled events, activities, and experiences.” Visit for more information on the holiday events happening throughout Temecula Valley.
