How pitching Your Idea can win you cash
Are you a fountain of amazing ideas?
I admit that's not really my forte. Given time and perhaps a calm, beautiful landscape, like a beach, and maybe with a mojito, magical things may begin to happen in my brain. But I can't guarantee it.
But, maybe you're not like me. My husband and my children have invention epiphanies often. Usually having to do with an imaginary product that will make their lives easier. Like remote control lawnmowers.
This is not exactly the same thing, but it's close.
This opportunity, offered by a company named Tongal.com, is a bit different in that your not pitching your invention ideas, but rather you're pitching your marketing ideas for companies featured on their site.
If you're the kind of person that gets inspired by the commercials that are shown during the Superbowl every year, or if you think you can do even better, then this may be a great opportunity for you.
Tongal, and the companies they are helping, are looking for imaginative, creative people like you with fresh and exciting ideas to market their brands to the general public.
Crowdsourcing is the next big thing in business. What crowdsourcing does is break up a big
project into small manageable parts that just about anyone can jump in
on and get paid for.
Tongal has taken this idea of crowdsourcing and has offered a way for anyone to submit ideas for commercials/videos on their site that will be viewed by companies such as Lego, Facebook, Dodge, and Allstate Insurance.
If the company likes your idea so much that it makes it to a Finalist stage, you could get paid up to $500 or more just for submitting your idea.
So Tongal seeks to connect businesses with creative talent, be it writers, directors or again, people just like you and me, who may just have a really great idea.
They do it in three phases:
1. Simply pitch an idea (Win $500 for a winning idea)
2. Pitch a detailed video idea/with directing examples.(Win $1,000 for the winning video pitch)
3. Film the video as a finalist. (Four Winners are chosen, from 4th place to 1st place finishes. All win money prizes ranging from $4,000- $20,000+ depending on where you finish)
But the part that I thought might interest you to start is contributing to the idea phase. Simply coming up with a creative one paragraph idea can win you $500 in cash.
However, if you have experience as a writer or a video producer, you can submit your videos or your pitch for a great commercial and if you win the project you can make tens of thousands of dollars.
The website will explain it much better than I can so I suggest checking out the site for more info on how pitching your idea can win you cash.
So enjoy putting on your thinking hats and letting your creativity shine!
