HOUSTON, Sept. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BillAdvisor, a new company aimed at lowering payments for recurring monthly subscriptions, will be the topic of discussion on Houston radio station KSEV 700 AM on Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2016.
Due to growing interest in the service after an initial appearance on KSEV 700, Lanny Hayes, the BillAdvisor Vice President will appear for a second time on the station's daily personal finance show, "Money Matters" hosted by Steve Drake.
For executives, the goal is to boost awareness of the niche bill negotiation industry among consumers. Hayes' previous appearance on the broadcast resulted in driving enrollment in the service to a milestone of 4,000 members. As Patrick Gaides, the Chief Marketing Officer explains, "Most people don't realize that what they're paying each month can be leveled… that they don't really have to be stuck with it." Gaides claims that most new customers report initial unawareness that such bill negotiation services even exist, and are excited to learn about them.
BillAdvisor itself is a newer service which helps members save money by negotiating common bills or comparison shopping between service providers. As one of the latest arrivals in a growing niche, the Houston-based brand assists consumers nationwide through its representative negotiators, dubbed 'concierges' for their role in caretaking and advocacy for members. Customers are often attracted to the simplified method of saving money and comparing various common monthly services like auto insurance, cellphone, energy, internet, television, and others.
Employees say their motivation and enthusiasm derives from helping members not only save hundreds of dollars each year, but also improving consumers' understanding of the services they're paying for and why. "Of course we help members all over the country keep more of their money," Hayes notes, "but this also reduces the stress of wondering whether or not they're getting the best deal possible. That's what we provide: savings without the headache."
CEO Damon Diamantaras started BillAdvisor after more than 20 years of experience in dealing with major national service providers and consumers. Compelled by the noticeable frustration within the latter group, he shares what initially prompted him to launch the service:
"I saw a need that time-conscious consumers lack the time and knowledge to truly understand [and] monitor if they are getting the right value for monthly recurring expenses. Utilizing our knowledge in this area, we determined that we could save people real money and provide them with an exceptional customer experience."
In the experience of BillAdvisor concierge Pearl, she agrees that many customers aren't proficient enough to wrangle with service providers themselves and need all the help they can get: "They don't know who to talk to, what to look for, or the tricks, it's just too time consuming for most people to handle on their own. I do this for a living and I get results without wasting time."

BillAdvisor was founded in August 2015 by Diamantaras, subsequently launching online in January 2016. Its team firmly believes consumers deserve to make informed decisions about common services and receive the best service at the right price.
- Gaides and Hayes state that of their new customers, 8 in 10 are unaware they are overpaying for monthly bills prior to receiving an analysis of their bills.
- The BillAdvisor Gold package is subscription-based at a flat monthly rate of $12.99.
- As of Wednesday, August 24, 2016, BillAdvisor celebrated reaching its 4,000 member mark.
