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 9:00 and 23:00 GMT and I answer 90% of chats in less than 1 minute. When I am OFFLINE you can leave messages via same chat and I answer you next morning. LiveChat show what pages are you looking at, so I can reply accordingly.
Note: I used Zendesk Chat between 2012 and April 2021 when I changed to LiveChat, which offer few advantages, for example I can reply messages even after you closed website, all what you need to do is to visit my website again from same browser/device and see my reply. If you leave an email address in chat, you will get my reply in your email too.
If you prefer emails, you can email me [email protected] and indicate which pages of my website are you talking about.
Note: emails risk going to SPAM folder or be lost between automated notification emails (my inbox looks like THIS), I try to reply every human-written email, but half don’t reply me back, some people sent me follow-up emails saying that did not heard from me, probably my emails were flagged by your SPAM folder. When you receive reply from me, instead of replying via email, you can visit website so we can discuss project requirements faster via chat than via emails. If you do not receive any reply from me in 24 hours, alert me with a message via LiveChat when I am online.
Other ways to contact me are Skype and Google Hangouts. 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.
When you can contact me
Most people contact me to ask pre-purchase questions and takes 5-20 minutes of chatting to reach a SALE, but sometimes difficult customers come and ask lots of questions before being convinced to make purchase. There are also kids who come here just “to chat with someone” because they are bored in classroom.
Please read website first and avoid asking questions that are already answered on website, to keep chats short and help me serving more customers. Avoid wasting my time in long conversations if you do not intend to buy anything from me or pay any service.
If you intend to buy, start chat then suddenly no longer hear 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.
Feel free to contact me if you have any enquiry about AutoCAD, architecture, real estate, databases research, data mining and analysis, or any other stuff covered by articles of this website, comments about my works, errors to report, ideas for new projects, critics, etc. Note: I prioritize projects based on how many people request or benefit from each one.
For architectural design services, contact me and explain project requirements and confirm your budget, then I put you in contact with most suitable architect.
I have 5 architects located in India, Philippines, Romania and United States, and 2 programmers located in Egypt and Pakistan that can do your projects. I do not post their contact info here to protect them from being spammed by people looking for free services.
DO NOT contact me if you need FREE help at school projects. You can cite my website as (name of cited page) + Teoalida’s Website, but if you need additional info use Google to find information yourself, or ask help on Reddit / Facebook groups.
DO NOT contact me if you are a SEO company and/or looking for guest posts. I do not outsource SEO and not accept sponsored articles written by third-party people. Read more: allowed & not allowed advertising.
When you should post comments
Post public 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.
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. While I do get email notifications for every comment posted, 90% comments are posted by spam bots rather than human visitors, so I seldom read comment notifications. One day I noticed an 1-month old comment posting his email address waiting for me to contact him, I emailed him, but was too late.
Please post comments to reply also comments left by other people. Do not leave all communication to be ONLY between me and the 2000+ people who visit my website daily.
Please post comments in the relevant page, NOT in this general Contact page, for example house builders in Philippines post your comment in House Plans page or Philippines page, while for questions about Singapore SERS programme post your comment in SERS page.
Frequently asked questions
Do you stay at computer all time to greet visitors and answer questions?
I stay online as long I am home and not sleeping, but I do not always stay in front of computer. When I am online, the chat automatically greet everyone staying on website few minutes. This is why you may see chat popping up multiple times if you visit website repeatedly. If chat do not pop-up, most of you may not realize that could get help from me via chat.
Just having 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 to call me, case in which I try to reach computer as fast I can to answer you. If you don’t need my help, just close chat popup, do NOT write “no thanks” to avoid “calling” me unnecessarily.
Note: as May 2021 I am doing experiments to see whenever is more efficient to have an offline form requiring entering name/email/message when I am sleeping or keep myself signed in from phone to allow chat to popup 24/7 and allow people leaving anonymous messages, which I can reply in the morning and you will see reply if you visit my website again from same browser/device.
Do you get paid to chat with people? 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 my chat with you helped you to decide to buy a $500,000 property, I appreciate if you can donate to paypal @ teoalida.com whatever sum you like. Example: someone paying $20 for architectural consultation.
While chat consultation is usually FREE, research, drawings and database services are NOT FREE. This is how I make a living. If you are NOT PAYING for any service you are advised to not stay in chat too long time.
