What Is Opportunity?

Opportunity is a 21st century business network that actively searches for opportunities (leads) to help grow your business, advance your career, create relationships and more. Opportunity uses a matching algorithm to:

  • Generate sales for businesses
  • Identify qualified job candidates for hiring managers
  • Discover employment opportunities for job seekers
  • Introduce people for the purpose of networking based on shared interests and more.
  • Connect professionals who want to date other professionals

To date, Opportunity has generated nearly 1 billion opportunities for millions of professionals around the world (190+ countries). Opportunity launched in 2014. To learn more about Opportunity watch this short video tutorial 

Millions of professionals from 190+ countries in every industry imaginable uses Opportunity everyday to grow their network, advance their business, further their career and create relationships. If you are a professional in need of sales leads, new job opportunities (or job candidates) or simply wish to grow your network in a more intelligent way, Opportunity is for you. We also have a dating profile option that allows you to connect with other professionals in a more meaningful way. 

Opportunity now lets you import contacts from  various Email accounts, such as Gmail, Yahoo and Outlook or just easily drag and drop contacts formatted in our simple CSV format into our Connect Your Networks page.

If you’re like most people, you have hundreds (maybe thousands) of contacts who know nothing about what you have to offer. Not only can you discover hidden business opportunities that exist within your network, but we also allow you to communicate with your contacts using our Mass Message feature which is a lightweight email markeing tool.
Invite them to join Opportunity and as they begin to realize what you do and have to offer we’ll make sure to let you know and make a connection! 
Step by step directions 

Yes and No. We provide a Basic Membership that allows you to access up to 15 opportunities for free to start. These are referred to as ‘unlocked’ leads – which you can message at any time. Each day you can unlock a limited amount of leads. If you have used the daily limit or the lead you try to unlock is a new premium lead, there will be a padlock icon next to that lead’s photo, indicating it’s locked status. For new premium leads there is a 36-hour cool-down period before these leads can be unlocked that you will see as a countdown timer when you open a locked premium lead. To access all your lead opportunities and  benefits users must upgrade to a PRO Membership level that has no restrictions. In addition to being able to unlock all of your leads, our PRO Membership allows you to access all of the features and tools within the Opportunity platform this will allow you to continue to generate unlimited opportunities each day as well as more advanced ways to promote yourself, your business and communicate with others.

Creating a profile takes less than 2 minutes – much less time than is required by most other networks. We ask for basic information (name, email, etc)… as well as a series of questions needed to help begin to find you opportunities. Depending upon which profile type you choose this may include: which industries you are involved in, your skills, employment type, where you do business or seek employment (regions), which types of people you would like to connect with (based on interests, gender, age), and more.

First and foremost, Opportunity is a professional network designed to match people based on business goals (employment, sales, networking and more). Starting in 2018, Opportunity released a new user option that matches professionals for the purpose of dating (currently in beta).  As with all other profile types, the dating profile experience is kept completely separate from the other experiences (employment, sales, networking, etc.).  For more information about Opportunity for Dating watch the video

Unlike other business networks which require you to waste time searching through thousands of profiles to uncover opportunities, Opportunity does the work for you. Each day our system scans our network of millions of professional profiles to proactively match (and connect) you with people who have indicated they need your services, skills and more. Opportunity is all about connecting you with people you should know not the people you already know. In short, we’re an automated online professional matchmaker that never stops generating leads.

We have NO affiliation with LinkedIn.

Our matching algorithm uses basic information contained in your profile to match you with other Opportunity members who are in need of your service or skills. Depending upon which profile type you choose, we take into account such things as Industry Types, Skills, Location, Company Size, Employment Types and more… Our algorithm drills even deeper to discover other commonalities between you and others such as Gender Preferences, Hometowns, Age Preferences, Interests, Job Preferences as well as people you already know who you have in common.  Additionally, Opportunity is able to discover hidden leads among your existing networks (such as LinkedIn) and Email contacts. Each time someone in your existing networks join Opportunity and indicate they need what you offer (and vice versa), we let you (and them) know of the opportunity!  Our advanced lead matching algorithms that connect users from our 5,000,000+ network to opportunities based on variables that identify ‘who needs who or what’ anywhere in the world at anytime. Results are reported in real-time so members can take immediate action.
