Tim Tracey is founder and managing member of YouGottaCall.com, LLC. YouGottaCall.com is the word-of-mouth “Connection Engine” that allows consumers to find and share trusted referrals for local businesses while benefiting their favorite charities.
Tim and his partners launched YouGottaCall.com in the greater-Hartford, CT (USA) market in 2008. YouGottaCall currently connects hundreds of CT businesses with their network of customers and neighbors.
YouGottaCall.com’s revised UI, released in June 2010, features several major improvements that are expected to enhance adoption and utilization among the not-for-profit community.
Operations are planned to expand regionally. YouGottaCall.com, LLC has been awarded a US Patent (No 7,953,644) on key aspects of its business model that allow members, vendors and not-for-profit organizations to connect, bid for referrals, share referral information, and distribute fees to allow ‘not-for-profits’ to benefit.
Tim is excited about the addition of development partner ForeSite Technologies as well as the team of “Connect-gineers”, social-media consultants who help local NFP organizations to engage their community, maintain relationships and generate recurring income. They also assist local businesses to generate highly qualified sales leads.
