Places You Can Sell Your Ideas

places you can sell ideas

The only question I get asked more than “how do I come up with more ideas?” is “where can I sell my ideas?” — and these two questions couldn’t be further apart. The answer to the first question is all about efforts and exercises to produce creative concepts in large quantities, whereas the most successful […]

Podcasts Running Through My Mind

Running Through My Mind Podcast

I decided to jump in and launch a podcast this week. Over the last 6-12 months I’d been trying to recruit a few business associates, past project partners, even my spouse to commit to creating and co-hosting an ongoing podcast program, but I couldn’t get any takers. They were all interested, but no one seemed to want […]

Blogging Down Barriers

I’m a big fan of blogging. I’ve been doing it since people still knew the word was an amalgam of “web log”. Blogger.com launched in 1999 and I think I used that as my own launching point for blogging (up until then I was posting static articles on websites and sharing ideas in online groups and bulletin […]

SlideShare Smarts

About five years ago I discovered SlideShare and decided to upload a couple of my older slide presentations along with a version of my book “100-Whats of Creativity“.  Every so often SlideShare sends me an email with a running count of views they’ve received and at one point the SlideShare version of my book earned […]

Scribbling on napkins

I am a very big fan of scribbling ideas and jotting notes and scrawling diagrams on napkins. Putting the tip of a rollerball pen to a napkin just seems to foster my creative spirit. The napkin is an informal method of sharing an idea or making plans. It usually means you’re in a casual location […]

Mind Games

Wracking your brain for an idea can be mentally draining (literally!) and physically exhausting (stress and tension can be a real pain in the neck… and back.) Stimuli collected from reading and other research can relieve some of the brain drain, but research can also be tiring (though I find it a bit energizing, too) […]

Scumbag Twitter

Selling banner impressions has always been anathema to me. Banners are either boring or obnoxious, usually have unengaging messages, and link to worthless homepages rather than helpful landing pages. From an Advertising or Media company standpoint, banners are not wholly profitable because the CPM (cost per thousand) market price keeps falling, while their effectiveness as […]

Quit watching the needle

I once considered myself a “Google Anal(ytics) Retentive”.  When Google Analytics first launched, they made it so simple and easy to install a few lines of code on your site in order to view “valuable” data about your website traffic that I became enamored with this toy. I could generate pages and pages of reports […]
