I received the same email as well this morning. I checked out their site and it looks to be a start-up and has pretty good info. I haven't signed up. Makes me wonder where they received my contact info.
Excellent site, looks like they are just getting started. I really like the format and looks very professional. I don't use Volition anymore. If you go to the opportunities section it has most of the merchandising companies listed with links to their sign-up pages as well as an area to provide feedback. I more than doubled my workload - love it!
I have found almost a dozen companies I didn't know existed and am not working nearly full-time between all of them. I love the site, it would be better if more of us posted over there as well. I keep going back whnever I need to find more work.
