A new world
with peace of mind where
everyone gets paid more
  • I want shoes that go well with this skirt.
  • I need a laptop but I have no idea.
  • Where is a best piano teacher for my son?
  • A faucet was broken. I need a plumber today!
  • I'll buy a cross bike and a stand for $500.
  • But ...
Which one should I buy?
Pay is not enough!

When people buy something, they buy at high positions of search results and rankings.

Since orders are concentrated in the top companies, their brand and pay are raising.

As others' are falling, we don't have enough money. We suffer from inequality of income and too much competition.

Well, what if you could become free from the ranking hell and get nice offers that meet your requests?

What if that could raise everyone's income and make you in peace in a bit more equal world?

A magical mechanism that benefits both buyers and sellers

Companies at high positions on search results and rankings has become richer, while others has become poorer.

No rankings here. You can find good things from overlooked products and small/mid businesses.

Buyers can buy cheaper than before, the lower sellers can have more sales even though they sell at the same prices.

Pay will rise, employment will increase, and consumption will increase. The local economy will grow, and everyone's pay including the top-rankers will rise.

Nagahama Asuka, Lead of Tsukuba branch, Requestland Users Group (RLUG)
Director of sales at Takahashi Painting Company

I'm a sales rep of a renovation company. We carry out extremely harsh sales activities, with about 150 walk-in cases per day and several contracts closed each month.

So I came across a service called Requestland. When searching for products, companies that spend much money on advertising stand out, and many really good companies are buried.

I think Requestland is a very good service that we can find really good products.

Our company was able to get a contract at Requestland, and it didn't cost anything. I love it because I can meet new customers and have meetings with chat and video.

Saito Kanami, Lead of Ryugasaki branch, Requestland Users Group (RLUG)
Owner of Chez Yamabiko, an international share house

I am creating a space for international exchange in Ryugasaki, Japan.

I didn't like this world where riches get richer, so I listened to the presentation and decided that if I could solve it even a little, I would definitely support it.

I think even if it seems that you are making a choice on your own, the choices are already being guided on the net.

I hope that Requestland will revitalize the local economy. I'll do my best too!

Project goals

  1. Increase everyone's pay, resolve the serious disparity, and mitigate excessive competition to recover peace of mind.
  2. Build a decent economic system that everyone can work with passion and enough income for somebody's smile.
  3. Create a virtuous cycle of the local economy and pass a better world to our children and grandchildren.

History and future plans

We've been focusing on development for better tommorrow. We'd like to listen to your opinions.

For the time being, you will have little response to your requests and doumos. Don't mind and write more and more, please. As the number of requests increases, the service will work better.

Sellers please prepare receivers that automatically receive requests for you. When writing doumos for your product, please check "Advertising, asked, or fake".

Both buyers and sellers can use it for free. Although we will provide productivity options, free use will be continued.

Here users are the main actors. Please invite your friends and colleagues. We don't advertise at all.

Since there is no support from us, please help other users. We would like to support users to establish branches of the Requestland Users Group RLUG that proactively conducts promotional activities, case study presentations, events, etc. If you would like to set up a branch, please let us know.

We are looking for volunteers and staff. In particular, we need staff who can speak English and Japanese.

We have not received any funding from investors or universities, and have been operating unpaid with potluck funds and donations. Since our money has ended, your sponsorship is very welcome.

Enjoy!!
