Idea Competitions

Have you ever watched a commercial or seen a billboard for a new product and thought "I could've thought of that"? Thousands of creative people have that exact thought every day, but their brilliant and innovative ideas never materialize as more than a wisp of thought. You probably think that unless you're employed by a national marketing or advertising firm, your ideas will never evolve into anything more than a flash of thought. The prospect of being paid for those ideas doesn't even enter into the realm of possibilities.

In actually it's not only plausible to be paid by huge National corporations for your ideas, it's easy. Ideamarketplace.com provides a channel for those that think outside the box to get paid simply for their innovative ideas. Major corporations in need of fresh ideas and new direction submit requests to Idea Marketplace. You, as a seller browse the marketplace until the light bulb goes off. Following your submission Idea Marketplace will post your idea for the buying companies to choose form. If yours is picked, you get paid. It's that easy.

How much can I get paid?

The amount paid for an idea can vary widely. Small projects and competitions can range from $100 or less up to $1000 and higher. Idea requests from large National or Global companies can pay well into the tens of thousands of dollars if they find exactly what they're looking for. Current market prices dictate compensation in many of the cases. If a corporation is willing to pay $20,000 for a ready to print advertising campaign, than Idea Marketplace thinks there's no reason you shouldn't be paid the same. If you've got the right ideas, the earning potential is limitless.

What constitutes a great and marketable idea?

Ideas chosen for purchases fit a fairly clear set of definitions. First and foremost an idea needs to be completely unique and previously untried. In addition the idea must be feasible, marketable, have a target audience and show a clear promise for benefiting a company. If Idea Marketplace puts your idea on their market, it fits all those criteria.

For every time you've had a "million dollar idea" you could have potentially earned just that. The revolutionary new system for the buying and selling of ideas means anyone with a creative mind can potentially earn thousands of dollars just for the ideas in their head. The ideas you have for products, ads and solutions could be the next big thing companies have been searching for.
