A Real Need Right Now

The US needs Reveral right now to help people get jobs faster. The website lets individuals check references for people and businesses while having their own profile to build their own reputation. Reveral eliminates the hassle of tracking down people. Simply search for a person or business, view their dynamic references and setup an appointment to talk. The site allows users to connect with businesses they can’t reach through a social network.

What Employers Want

According to a 2009 survey by LinkedIn, the majority of employers seek three things most from a reference: openness, minimization of legal implications and a more efficient process. Reveral is a place to find candid answers instead of call-shock and convoluted responses; the site removes legal issues, since users have agreed to terms; and the process is much faster then tracking people down, saving HR man hours. A highlight for job seekers and businesses is the ability to view their status in the hiring process eliminating uncomfortable follow up calls.

Large Market

According to the Department of Labor as of March 2009 there were 150 million Americans in the workforce with a 7% unemployment rate. Companies are downsizing, laying off thousands of employees to satisfy shareholders and stay afloat. Over the past decade the number of small businesses has grown to 23 million. People have decided to become freelancers or start their own small companies, creating more security and better lives for themselves. These individuals and businesses utilize social networks, employment sites and resume builders to improve their chances of finding the right employee, job or business partner. Small businesses are seeking to streamline variable costs and reduce their overhead.

Uniqueness

Reveral begins where LinkedIn leaves off. Its not a social network, it’s about an individuals’ or businesses’ need to provide a view of their reputation to people and businesses they’d like to work with. Small businesses, freelancers and everyone else who’s ever given out a reference knows that the process can be tedious for all involved. Imagine simultaneously working with multiple companies or applying for several jobs. In this case one’s references could be overwhelmed with calls even if they’re not available.

Viral Power: Building a User base

People want to build their reputations. Reveral’s platform lets individuals ask anyone they know to be a reference easily to do just that. Users can add any contact from their Outlook or Instant Messenger directories to request a reference, building users exponentially. Plus they’re not adding friends as with a social network drawing in junk mail.

Strength of the Market

With 23 million small business and 150 million employees in the United States there is a very large market to address. Current the US is in a deep recession and March 2009’s job report by the Bureau of Labor and Statistics indicates 5 million or 7% unemployed, but a true number of 15% is closer. With these numbers many are looking for work or worried about their jobs. Small businesses want to strengthen their position. Nothing is more important then someone's reputation and Reveral can be the market leader in providing it easily to whoever wants it.

Potential Partnerships & Acquisitions

Reveral will seek to establish strategic partnerships with Fortune 1000 auditor’s and insurance groups that offer real credibility to Reveral. Reveral will then seek out independent verification companies including Dun and Bradstreet and Trans Union to offer additional verification options to users.

Best Case:

Reveral gains a substantial market share and brand loyalty - we can become a viable candidate for license and acquisition with top-tier software giants such as LinkedIn, Myspace, Facebook paying for market leadership.

Worst Case:

Reveral becomes a solution for a sustainable and growing niche vertical market – but still is a good buy with the same tech groups.
