Example: e-mail inviting an expert to join Opiniorate

Dear ...,

To safeguard employees trying to improve working conditions, a new website has been developed. It is called Opiniorate (https://www.opiniorate.com). The prime aim of the website is to offer employees safe ways to communicate about their employer and their working conditions. This gives employers – by studying dialogues on Opiniorate and preferably contributing to them via their own employer user account – the opportunity to learn from the experiences of people on the work floor. For employees the secure environment is realized by the use of anonymous user names.

Unions willing to join this venture can also receive a free user account with a user name of their own choice. This account permits them to communicate and share information with employers and employees. Unions are also given a blog and a web page on the website where they can introduce themselves and where they can add links to their union website or campaigns.

In a brochure enclosed in this e-mail you can find more details about Opiniorate. The website is currently still in a testing phase but even now fully operational. No promotional activities have been undertaken so far as some things regarding the hosting of the website still have to be handled. To finance a proficient hosting for a period of at least one year that will allow us to welcome the many visitors that we anticipate, we are working on a crowdfunding project at Kickstarter.com. In the future we anticipate a business model for Opiniorate that is based on voluntary sponsorships by employers and unions that feel that Opiniorate really has value for them.

But why I am writing this to you? Well, we are momentarily also contacting experts like you to join the venture as expert users. Experts are selected based on their expertise in the field of human resources and/or as advocates for workers' rights at one of the selected companies on Opiniorate.

Experts can share content and take part in discussions or start discussions by asking questions to employees. Experts can also engage in discussions with other experts. Experts are also given a blog and a web page on the website where they can introduce themselves and where they can add links to other websites.

Experts willing to advise us on how to operate Opiniorate in a correct manner can also participate as ambassadors in the online advisory board with separate discussion fora. These discussion fora are available only to the experts.

At this moment in time our business model does not allow us to pay you for your content. So experts can only join on a voluntary basis. As an expert you should see Opiniorate as a forum where you can profile yourself as an experts. There are no rules regarding contributions other than that they should contribute to good discussions on Opiniorate. Readers with a user account can comment on your contributions.

Opiniorate is a product of LiqueFactive, a Dutch company. With Opiniorate we are targeting employees and unions in English speaking countries. More information about Opiniorate can of course also be found on the website (see the FAQ there).

If you are interested in joining as an expert, contact us with a reply on this e-mail and let us know which user name you would like to use. You can also name one employer that you would like us to add to the website with priority. We are also looking forward to learn from any remarks from you about the website.
