Who are your clients?
We help business owners, managers or entrepreneurs from every sector of business and industry imaginable. Professional service providers also use our services to assist their own clients, e.g. marketing or management consultants, accountants, lawyers. Clients served include media organizations, NGOs, government departments, researchers, investors and financial market analysts.

How are you different from traditional consultancies?

Our clients choose the amount they are willing & able to pay - which surely is a first. And instead of asking just one expert, World4Brains clients consult up to hundreds of the world's best brains from as many disciplines as required - all at the same time! Furthermore, we give our clients a full guarantee of satisfaction that includes a 100% money-back guarantee; to our knowledge we are the first and only consultancy to offer such a guarantee - both online & offline. Here's a short summary of The 15 Advantages we offer our clients.

How does it work?
Once you have registered your free account you can set up your Public Profile and choose your Consulting Expertise categories (you can also reveal your contact info if you wish to be contacted directly by our clients).

And from now on you will start to automatically receive email invitations to participate in all projects that require your selected expertise categories. You can then choose to participate in a particular project or not - it's completely up to you. You can also make yourself Invisible to stop receiving invitations e.g. if you are already too busy with other projects or while going on a holiday.

Who are Accredited Consultants?
Contributing experts may choose to tell as much or as little about themselves as they feel comfortable with in their Public Profile. Accredited Consultants however have gone through a vetting and verification process where we thoroughly examine their real-life identity and professional credentials in order to guarantee our clients that they really are who they say they are. Any consultant can choose to go through the approval process and become accredited.

How do consultants get paid?
World4Brains Clients will determine all valid & valuable contributions and select the contributing consultants who will then equally share the Project Amount (minus our service fee). Outstanding expertise can be additionally rewarded with Award Bonus! payments that are 100% personal. Clients sometimes choose to directly continue their collaboration with a preferred consultant - and that is perfectly fine with us!

All money earned is immediately transferred to the consultants' account upon conclusion of a project and is instantly available for withdrawal through Paypal.

Can a consultant also launch projects as a client?
Yes sure! Any user can use World4Brains both to launch projects as well as to contribute to other users projects.

Who are your typical consultants?
They come from all walks of life and all four corners of the world: active or downsized professionals who like to showcase their expertise, retired experts preserving and passing on their accumulated wisdom, smart home makers (perhaps on maternity leave), well-credentialed professors, students brimming with unconventional new ideas...

How do you ensure a high quality and expertise level of your consultants?
Although anyone is welcome to register and contribute their expertise, the majority of World4Brains.com Consultants is carefully hand-picked and get personally invited. We have also developed an Automatic Quality Control system that eliminates anyone deemed to be a 'time-waster' (via mathematical algorithms). Furthermore clients can always choose to invite only Accredited Consultants to their projects as they have have been thoroughly screened to confirm their real-life identity and professional credentials. Clients can also Delete comments in their LIVE Project Room or Block a particular consultant from further access to his project.

Is there a rating system for clients?
Yes, you can check the history of a World4Brains Client by analyzing the total number of projects launched, the total of all Project Amounts, the total number of rewarded contributions, plus the number and total amount of all Award Bonus! payments made.

Do you offer any guarantees to your consultants?

Yes we do. World4Brains Protection: All consultants & innovators who make valid & valuable contributions to World4Brains projects will get paid. Please read more in our Terms of Service.


Why do clients reward all valid & valuable contributions and appoint the respective consultants?

There are three reasons: First, clients generally like to reward great contributions and show their appreciation! (Some clients pay in addition to the total project amount a personal bonus.) The second point is that our clients like to ensure that outstanding consultants will be available to them in future projects as well (and perhaps wanting to offer them direct job or consulting contracts). And last but not least, clients enjoy an enhanced copyright protection by their appointments.

Our World4Brains Protection guarantees that all consultants & innovators whose input is considered to be valid & valuable will equally share the project amount (minus our service fee) held in Escrow by World4Brains.

How can you guarantee to be a totally fair and impartial arbiter who takes absolutely no sides, neither for clients nor consultants?
That is simply because we have absolutley zero conflict of interests: We will deduct our service fee from the Project Amount so that our Quality Assurance & Resolution panel can get paid - regardless of the outcome of their final and binding resolution - and that simple fact ensures that they will judge each case by its own merits, without fear or favor.

Can consultants stay anonymous?
Yes. Some of our consultants and innovators prefer to stay completely private; they may have a full-time job to protect or a variety of other reasons, and this is absolutely fine with us.

What would happen if a client received no or low quality contributions to his project?
In such an unlikely case the Project Amount will be fully refunded. It could really only happen if the specified  Project Amount is just way too small for the invited consultants & innovators to participate... however, a client could then decide to be more generous and select: Increase Project Amount and upon paying the amount into Escrow by World4Brains, new invitations will be sent out to all respective consultants advising them of the additional funds available.

How much does World4Brains charge?
We deduct a service fee of thirty percent of the total Project Amount, and allocate it as follows: 35% referral commission is paid to our World4Brains Ambassadors, another 25% for direct marketing costs and advertising. With the remaining 40% we pay Paypal remittance fees and hope to eventually be able to cover the running and development costs of our platform, paying salaries, and make a return on investments.
