Here’s what our members say about Live:


President, Smalls Analytics

Live is really handy when I'm on a deadline and want to learn! It's my on-demand backup tech resource with virtually unlimited knowledge.


M, professional

Just knowing Expert-Exchange’s 24/7 Live service is available and has my back makes my life as a consultant much less stressful!



I'm getting my degree online, so I use Live to get educated answers. The consultant I use is so helpful and educates me on how to resolve an issue, and how to best code so that I don't have the issue again.
