The fastest and safest way to contact me is to use Live Chat in lower-right corner of screen.
You have 90% chances to find me online between 07:00 – 21:00 GMT.
(2 AM – 4 PM New York Time, 3 PM – 5 AM Singapore time)
LiveChat shows pages you viewed so I can answer accordingly. If you contact me via email, please indicate page/product you are talking about (don’t send vague emails forcing me to guess). I receive 50 emails/day, mostly notifications and spam, I try to reply every human-written email but half don’t reply me back. If you do not receive email reply in 24 hours, probably your email or my reply landed in SPAM folder, alert me with a message via LiveChat or Skype when I am online.
Do not make phone calls, I cannot answer multiple phone calls simultaneously like how I answer multiple chats, and most deals require sharing links, photos and other files.
Over 2000 people visit website daily and I am the only one answering ~20 chats and 10 emails per day (see full statistics), beside this I need to maintain regular updates for my databases. Per month 60-80 people buy something or pay me for a service, while the rest are thankful for free information offered on website.
Contact me if…
You have pre-purchase questions of projects sold via website or requests new projects (AutoCAD, architecture, databases, etc).
You need consultation about any content shown on my website.
You found errors that I need to correct, you have contributions or anything else that can improve on my website.
Architectural projects are handled by 5 third-party architects, located in India, Philippines, Romania and United States. I do not post their contact info here to protect them from being spammed by people looking for free services. Tell me project requirements and confirm your budget, and I put you in contact with most suitable architect.
Buying / renting properties in Singapore are handled by William Chui.
DO NOT contact me if…
You are bored and want to talk with someone (like these kids). If you don’t hear reply from me, most likely I am overloaded by too many customers and/or a kid spamming too many messages distracted me from seeing your message. Just ping me with 1 more message to attract my attention.
You need FREE help at school projects, there are too many students to help each one, some sending disturbing messages and wasting my time in long pointless conversations. Read my website in silence, for additional information instead of asking my personal help, use Google or ask for help on Reddit / Facebook groups populated by thousands people.
You are a SEO company and/or looking for guest posts / buy links. Teoalida.com is personal website, I DO NOT outsource SEO and I DO NOT accept sponsored articles written by third-party people. Read more: allowed & not allowed advertising.
Post comments if…
You want to praise me (after purchase or consultation), suggestions, questions for other website visitors, or have information to add that may be interesting for other visitors.
You can reply comments left by other people. Do not leave all communication to be ONLY between me and the 2000+ people who visit my website daily.
Do not post comments to ask questions that require MY answer, example “I want to buy this, how I can contact you? / please email me your PayPal address“, instead contact me yourself via chat or email. 90% comments are posted by spam bots rather than human visitors, so I seldom read comment notifications. While cleaning SPAM comments I noticed someone posting his email address requesting me to contact him, I emailed him, but was too late.
Post comments in the relevant page, NOT in this general Contact page, for example house builders in Philippines can comment in House Plans page or Philippines page, while for questions about Singapore SERS programme, comment in SERS page.
Frequently asked questions
Do you stay at computer all time to greet visitors and answer questions?
Since 2012 been online on chat as long I am home and not sleeping, but being online does not always mean that I am in front of computer.
Chat software automatically greet visitors after few minutes of staying on website. Chat popping up does NOT mean that I know that you are here. You MUST write a message in chat to make my computer or phone ringing, case in which I try to answer as fast I can. If you don’t need my help, just close chat popup, do NOT write “no thanks” to avoid prank calls (making me to pull phone out of pocket unnecessarily).
See Zendesk Chat Dashboard how I answer visitors. In 2021 replaced Zendesk Chat with LiveChat to appear online 24/7 + ChatBot to provide instant answers to 50+ most common questions: “do you accept PayPal?”, “how often do you update”, “oldest car included?”.
If you write anything else, chatbot transfer you to human support (when I am online: 07:00 – 21:00 GMT) or show FAQ (when I am sleeping). Read more: how the chat + bot is working.
Do you get paid to chat with people?
Do you help people for free?
Do you help people for free?
I am NOT employed, affiliated with any government or company, or get paid “to help people”. I am independent, this is my personal website and only YOU can pay.
For example if chat consultation helped you to decide to buy a $500,000 property, a donation to paypal @ teoalida.com is appreciated. Example: someone paying $20 for architectural consultation.
While chat consultation is FREE, research, drawings and database services are NOT FREE. This is how I make a living.
Please keep chats short by asking ONLY questions that aren’t already answered on website. Avoid long conversations if you do not intend to buy something, pay any service, offer anything else in exchange, or other business collaboration: good example vs bad example. Having less questions to answer help me offering more frequent updates for everyone.
Where is your office located? Can I book an appointment?
I work from home ONLINE to people from all over the world, as typical freelancers do. I do not have any public office and I usually do not meet customers. Even if you live just few kilometers away from me, I prefer to not meet in real life unless is absolutely necessary.
If you need an employee in your office, or require me to travel somewhere, I am NOT the right person.
Can I hire you for a project?
In the past I made projects on request basis, but currently I have big responsibilities: to provide regular updates for few hundreds companies who purchased databases from me. Consequently I am NOT a freelancer that you can hire to “do a project just for you”. I can earn more $ doing SEO and marketing to increase sales of existing projects, rather than increasing number of projects.
Instead, you can suggest ideas of new projects if you want something that I don’t have already. I do new projects depending by available time and (unless your project can be done in few minutes – example) only if multiple people are interested, and post them on website so anyone interested can make payment and download it in seconds.
You are also welcome if you need 10-minute consultation, having pre-purchase questions about my projects, etc. But if you request an architectural design or anything else that takes hours/days and have NO USE for anyone else than yourself, I won’t spend my personal time helping you, instead I connect you with my partners offering services starting at $10/hour (useful if you need long-term workforce).
Can I work for you?
If you are architect, interior designer, programmer (experienced in data mining), or real estate agent, you are welcome to be my part-time partner and I can pass you leads occasionally. Show me your portfolio!
Some customers suggested me opening a company and have a team ready to do projects without delays. Other customers refused to work with my team and insisted to have project done by myself. Lacking constant flow of customers + difficulties in convincing customers to pay in advance for a project that will be completed in X days (opposite than buying completed projects), is NOT viable to hire full-time staff for each type of service people may ask for.
