You share an idea to quickly collect feedback from a community. Based on their arguments against or in favor of your idea, you are able to further improve your idea.
As a next step, you can develop your idea into creating a well-thought proposal.
Every registered voter can start an idea for their own neighborhood, place, province, state, country, or for every group that was joined.
OpinionFirst helps you to get your idea distributed in your community. Once your idea is published you have all the tools available to promote your idea!
OpinionFirst is a worldwide platform. Consequently, it is important to inform the right people about your idea. Who should read your idea? Which citizens, employees or members does it concern? OpinionFirst gives you a 'place' or 'group' suggestion, which you can change if needed.
Now that is clear who should receive your idea, let's create it:
What is your idea about? Select an existing OpinionFirst topic or start a new topic if that is not possible.
Express your idea in a clear, complete, and concise way in order to attract the maximum number of readers. Make sure you have read all the existing ideas on a topic before adding an idea. This helps to prevent duplicates.
We recommend a catchy, not too long title. Your title is never against something! It should state what your idea is about.
Start your idea by giving a brief summary. With this text you attract response. It appears in invitations by e-mail, in idea listings, and in other places, so use the most important keywords.
Subsequently, you can give background information, evidence, arguments, references, and advantages of what you propose.
You immediately can start promoting your idea with a click on the blue button.
