Nashville-based TAKL, an on-demand home services platform, announced that Kathie Lee Gifford will become Takl’s Spokesperson as part of the company’s new national advertising campaign. Gifford will appear in Takl TV commercials as well as certain digital ad platforms. Gifford also co-wrote the new Takl jingle with fellow Nashville songwriters Brett James and Sal Oliveri.
“We are excited to have such a well known, reputable and popular iconic TV personality as our spokeswoman for our upcoming national Ad campaign,” said Willis Johnson, Takl CEO in a release. “Her ability to connect with our customers is invaluable.”
On Instagram, Gifford shared about the announcement saying, “So happy our TAKL ads began airing today! Love and thanks to all the sweet TAKL PROVIDERS and our fabulous crew from @anthemrepublic”
Gifford recently purchased a home in Franklin and recently stepped down from hosting the Today Show with Hoda.
The Takl online and mobile app-based platform is the only on-demand, pre-priced mobile service for both business and home use with small jobs for $400 or less. Takl is a national leader in on-demand home services and offers its popular on demand service in more than 130 metropolitan markets in 42 states.
Customers can also post a custom chore or job with a price that providers can either accept or bid on in a real time auction format. The web and app platform also allows for task customization and additional add-on chores by the customer once the provider arrives on site. Utilizing Takl’s national network of over 60,000 providers that covers over 80% of the U.S. population, Takl users can have a provider arrive in about an hour to perform a small job or chore or they can schedule the job for a future reserved day and time.
The on-demand app connects self-employed providers, who have passed background checks, with both home and business users who need chores and small jobs completed. Popular chores and small jobs include lawn care, delivery & courier services, house or office cleaning, junk removal, small repairs, hourly day labor and custom jobs.
