Opiner is a service for curious, creative organisations. It allows them to canvas the opinions of real people — like you.
Our service is unique in two key ways:
Our communities are grouped based on the kind of experience they offer:
We are looking for smart, creative thinkers with interesting opinions who aren't afraid to challenge the norm.
Diversity is important to us. We look for demographic, geographic and cognitive diversity across our responders. We strive to find people who think about things differently and can share new and different ideas and perspectives.

Absolutely! Send them a link to the sign-up page: https://opiner.app/Responder/Register.
For your response to be accepted it must meet the following conditions:
Nope! Just your phone. You don't need any special lighting but it does help if you can record your response somewhere that's well-lit, so we can see you clearly. Natural light or a lamp is fine.
Sure, as long as it's reasonably quiet and there isn't too much going on in the background that might be distracting (think people moving around, loud noises etc.)
Ideally your response should be 2-3 minutes in length. The maximum limit is 3 minutes.
We're looking for quality over quantity, so explain your thoughts and opinions - give examples, tell stories about your experiences etc. but don't feel you absolutely have to fill the 3 minutes!
Ideally we'd love for you to expand a little more on your answer. Perhaps you can give an example to demonstrate your thoughts and opinions, or consider alternative views and explain why you disagree with them. You could even tell us about your friends and family's thoughts and opinions.
In the event of your response upload failing there will be an option to save your response to your phone. Send us an email at email@example.com and we'll be happy to help.
Good quality sound is essential. Avoid noisy places when recording your response and please speak up.
If possible try and film in your own home rather than your place of work or on public transport.
When you receive a question please take a moment to mull it over - this isn’t a race. Then share your thoughts as you would if you were having a conversation with a friend.
Remember there is no right or wrong answer; all opinions are valuable. In fact we are not really looking for an answer per se; what we really want is your opinion - so we can present a diverse range of thoughts.
Don’t worry about ums and ahs, and pauses at the start and end of the recording - we will cut these out. And if you completely fluff just redo it.
Levity and humour is fine, but so too is real world experience. Have fun. Just be you.
We'll send you a notification when we upload a new question. You can then choose to accept the question and record your response, or skip it so we can pass it along to someone else.
We aim to send you around 3-4 questions a month. If you don't have time to answer all of the questions, don't worry - just choose 'skip this question' for any you can't answer.
Opiner is currently in the beta phase, which means we are currently still developing and growing our Client base and responder communities. During this time you may get fewer questions per month. Please bear with us - we hope to be able to offer you more questions very soon!
No problem! Just select 'Skip this question'.
If you'd like to give us some feedback on the question, get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're always interested to know how we can make our questions better.
Questions are sent out between 9am-5pm Monday-Friday. Where possible we will send opt in requests between 8am-10am. We won't send you questions in the evenings or at weekends.
You have 2 hours to opt in or out of a question. If you can't or don't want to answer the question, please select 'Skip this question' so we can ask the next person on the list.
The deadlines are outlined below. Late submissions will be discounted and you won’t be paid.
|Opt in request sent (aka Question)||Response Deadline|
|Before midday||Midnight the same day|
|After midday||Midnight the next day|
Yes of course! We understand you're busy and sometimes life gets in the way. Just click 'Skip this question' in the app so we can offer it to the next person.
Our clients come to us because they're looking for valuable insight with a super fast turnaround. So unfortunately we can't offer time extensions.
We regularly publish new questions, so just skip this one (select 'Skip this question') and we should have a new one for you soon!
If you miss the deadline you wont be able to submit a response and we won't be able to pay you. If you think you won't be able to submit your response in time, please let us know by selecting 'Skip this question' so we can offer it to someone else.
If you don’t respond to two consecutive questions, and if we don’t hear from you, we will assume you’ve ghosted us and we won’t send you further questions.
Absolutely! Just drop us an email at email@example.com and we will pause your account. When you want to come back, all you need to do is email us again.
We're sorry to hear that! Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll remove you from our system.
If you have any feedback you'd like to give us about why Opiner wasn't for you, we'd love to hear it.

Not at all. You can choose on a question by question basis whether you want to be paid or donate your fee. We give you the option to choose each time before you record your response.
Opiner is passionate about being a business for good, and so we choose to partner with other like-minded organisations who share similar values and missions.
We work with social enterprises who want to bring about positive change in the world, across a range of issues such as the environment, social equality, and sustainable business.
Please do! If you have an organisation in mind who you think we should support, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to hear your suggestions.
We're sorry to hear that - we try to achieve a balanced mix of good causes and ensure there is something for everyone. If there's a particular cause you really care about, drop us an email at email@example.com - we might be able to include it in the future. Alternatively you could consider donating your fee to your chosen charity or good cause individually.
Clients see your first name, location, rough age (we use 5 year age brackets), your profile picture and your video response. We do not share your surname or contact details with clients. You can read more here: https://opiner.app/Home/Privacy
Clients might use your responses as inspiration for internal brainstorms, or to add clout when pitching a new idea or direction to other people in their company.
No. Our clients are only allowed to use your video responses internally. They are not allowed to share them publicly or post them on their social media channels. You can see more information here https://opiner.app/Home/Privacy
Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and one of the Community Team will be happy to help.
We're always open to hearing your feedback. Drop us a line at email@example.com and let us know your thoughts!
