Getting Paid For Your Ideas

This article will teach you how to get paid for sharing your ideas with companies and organizations.

Many companies will pay you to come up with great ideas. Actually, almost any company that would be convinced that your idea would be useful for their business, would probably pay you if you shared it with them.

IMPORTANT!!! THIS ARTICLE IS NOT ABOUT PAID SURVEYS ONLINE: However, paid surveys is a real source of income for many people. For more information on how to make money filling out surveys on the web, please see this resource on making money taking surveys.

So, how can you get paid for your ideas?

Well, give me 2 minutes and I will explain how this works.

The concept is simple: You bring them an idea they believe will bring them money (or any other incentive), and they will reward you in cash.

Who Will Pay You?

Companies, organizations or sometimes even self employed people will pay you for sharing your ideas with them (some examples shortly). Why they would want to pay you is obvious. You give them a great idea, they make money, and they will reward YOU in cash.

There are basically two ways to start making money from this:

Method #1: Find Companies That Are Searching For New Ideas

Some companies will tell you directly that they are searching for new ideas, and that if share your ideas with them, then they will pay you if they decide to use your idea.

EXAMPLES: Here's a few companies that will pay you for your ideas:

  • ThinkGeek.com pays you $250 in CASH (or a $300 TG Gift Cert) if they decide to use your suggestion. Furthermore, if you send them complete artwork that they end up using, they'll send you an additional $250 in CASH. Submit your ThinkGeek idea here
  • Innocentive.com is another company that will reward your ideas. You can win cash awards of up to $1,000,000 for your creative solutions to Challenges in Business and Entrepreneurship, Chemistry, Engineering and Design, Life Sciences, Math and Computer Science, and Physical Sciences. They provide open innovation marketplace challenges that are posted by corporations, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations who are looking for your help with product development and other business and science problems. And of course, each challenge has a significant cash award associated with it. If your solution is chosen, then you win! Submit your million dollar idea here

The examples above proves that there are companies out there willing to listen to anyone for input, and that will pay for ideas. However, there are probably hundreds or even thousands of companies online that officially say they will pay you for your ideas. A quick search in the search engines will help you to discover more of these great opportunities.

Method #2: Provide Great Ideas To Any Company

Probably most companies are willing to pay for your ideas if they can apply your ideas in a way that it is of any significant help for their business.

Realize That All Companies Need Great Ideas. All companies are dealing with challanges. Companies need to continually improve themselves to stay in business. And that's where you come in...

Almost all companies have clear goals on what to achieve, and if you could provide an idea that could help them achieve their goals faster, well then they will most likely pay you for those ideas. All you need to do is convince whatever company you're dealing with that YOUR IDEA will help them to achieve their goals faster, or convince them that your ideas will help them reach their goals in a cheaper way, less painful way, or simply in a much easier way.

How to make money from this? First, decide in which areas you could contribute to any business. For example, if you're good at organizing your home, try to think of great that spesific businesses could implement those ideas in their workplace.

GENERAL IDEAS: You could provide ideas that could be useful in any company, for example an idea that would make employees more happy and more efficient. Any company with employees could have use for such information.

NICHE IDEAS: You could also find spesific ideas targeted toward spesific niches, for example how to simply extend the lifespan of glodfish while they're staying at the pet shop.

There's a great deal of money to be made simply by providing your ideas to companies. You don't need to be an expert, however, it would make it easier to sell your idea if you could prove that you really know what you're talking about.

Method #3: Selling Patents

As defined by Wikipedia, a patent is a set of exclusive rights granted by a state to an inventor or his assignee for a fixed period of time in exchange for a disclosure of an invention.

If you have a great business idea, and if you think that your idea might be worth patenting, then you should first check if your idea really is unique and that there is no patent identical to your idea. A great way to search for patents is to use Google Patent Search at google.com/patents. Here you'll find more than 7 million patents.

The term "patent" originates from the Latin word patere which means "to lay open". Getting a patent will cost you some money, so you might consider selling the idea itself instead of recieving a patent. In some cases this would obviously be a mistake, in other cases this my be the easiest and fastes way to make some quick money. What you could do is "lay open" your idea with a trusted person or company in exchange for a reward. Naturally, make sure you don't spill the beans before you know for sure that you get your reward.

Method #4: Start A Company Based On Your Ideas

So what if you have a really great idea, but you don't want to sell it or share it with others. Then there's only one option: Use your idea to start a business. Let's say you have a totally new idea for a website, and you really believe that this could turn into a profitable business. What would you do? If you want to make money, and if you believe in your own idea, then use it to generate a solid income for yourself. However, you should note that most businessees fail in their first 3-5 years. If you want to keep your business alive, then you need to learn what you need to learn and apply your knowledge.

A great idea will never make you rich. It's what you decide to do with that idea that could make you a fortune.

Almost Any Company Would Pay For Ideas That They Think Will Help Them Succeed

Supreme ideas is a core of any successful businesses. It does not matter if the idea has been created inside the business by employees or the management, or if the idea has been provided from the outside by anyone else – the only thing that matters to the company itself is that they can apply the idea to help them reach their goals (without conflicting with internal values or the current business model).

Companies do not only want ideas that work – it's absolutely crucial to their survival.

If YOUR ideas could help them, well then all you need to do to make money is to convince the companies that your ideas will be of value for them, then share your ideas with them and get your reward.

I Want To Make Money - What's next?

Try some of the suggestions mentioned above. The suggestions given above might work, and then again they might not make it at all for you.

Or... you could just try to making money taking paid surveys. Said to be a sure way to make some extra income. I have doubts it could make you rich as some claim, but certainly paid surveys is a proven way to make extra income online.

Anyway i have ideas, for video games, movies, comics, you get the point im sure. i guess i could tell you about my idea. Ok you know how in every dumb movie about romantic comedy you got your lonely girl who gets swept off her feet by some dashing guy. Alot of funny stuff happens and in the end they get together and its all....happy. Well change the lonely girl to a 30 something cat lady whos antisocial and the dashing guy to a rebelious twenty year old chick who runs over the cat lady with her motor bike. yea... as you can see i just came up with that off the top of my head and dont know what happens next... -_- anyway thanks whoever even gave my comment a look. Ive wasted your time i assume. Goodbye....

Mystery Person (25.05.2013)

I have an idea for a new operating system for PowerPC and IA-32/64 instruction set architectures that will combine a mobile touchscreen human interface device general purpose computer with tablet-like features that can be interchanged for a desktop or laptop like features, and optionally to be used as a server, gaming system, and digital media viewer.

The device's design concepts are already visualized, and so is other technical details in illustrated vector artwork, hand artwork, graphs, and schematics. I also have a good idea on how to develop the operating system.

Some give away specs are:

1.8-core multiprocessor and co-processor system.

2.32 and 16 bit backwards compatible.

3.24 GB main memory.

"how America takes care of other countries but never us" Hahaha! Hah.

Jessica (Homeless) (11.04.2013)

Well my idea is well out there. Since we have waaaaay to much unused houses in central New York, and tons of runaways or homeless. I believe and always have that the old soldiers houses should be put up and fixed for the families that need a place. I mean we are always complaining about how America takes care of other countries but never us. So if we just stopped and helped out our country long enough we could make America a better place. I just don't think that it is fair that there are homeless in America with small children. Not everyone can get a job or get welfair. and i believe that if there is a good honest couple out there that needs shelter for their children that they should at least have a roof over their heads. Like i said i have always believed that and always will. I believe that if i keep my idea going then someone else would agree with me and the motion would be passed. In To Kill a Mockingbird the one boy was poor, couldn't really afford to eat and yet he had a house I guess that i don't care whether or not someone agrees with my ideas. Just that someone listened, and would try to make America a better place for us all like it was when we first arrived.

my idea is a app on apple or any other camera phone
when you are in trouble you click the app then you take a pic of your attacker and then it automatically send the pic and where you are to your friends

I loved it. You had a few spelling errors but besides that it was a nice article. I'm a senior in high school and is still afraid of the world so I'm trying to find a job that is suitable for me and able to keep me secure financially.

Real Money Makers (29.03.2013)

Transparency should be the principle of any business activity. By following it, one can win the confidence of the clients and generally never see the darkside in business operation.

In Luv with Siri (17.03.2013)


Create an app that "allows" Siri to talk dirty to you (and vice versa). Then you can have dozens of spin off apps that allow for different styles of role play.

Variations on the voice depending on "who" you want to talk to.

Doesn't have to be Siri of course. Or it could be an app within itself.

Good luck. I'd suggest viral marketing and hope Apple doesn't mind.

How too take up waxs from tile floors without using commercial floor s it work faster make wax look longer.

Richard (12.03.2013)

i think for the game the walking dead they should make a game were u made ur own character and get to go ur own way. but also meet up with rick when he's going to atlanta and go to the base camp were they go back to and so on. But when more walkers get in u have to fight ur way through and find ur self lost and get to find michone and andrea but u only be with them for a couple of days and then split cause ur trying to find a new home . but u find ur self all alone and find a town were their are survivors. And the begining of the game should be about ur life just 3 days before everything started going bad. thats sort of my idea i still haven't finished it yet

gotjustus (12.03.2013)

How do we know that these companies won't take our ideas and leave us hanging... and surveys don't pay you right away like they say. I have never had any good luck with that, when you call a company to give them an idea you don't get the manager are the owner you get the secretary who may or may not pass your information on and then you wait for someone to call you and never do. And just given up my Ideas online so that someone else can get it, is not helping myself. But I like the start your own business ideas. Love it thank you

Morgan Smith (21.02.2013)

I have a great invention! It is the new,"Auto - Matic"! It is a new advanced paddle for all sorts of boats! Kayaks, canoos, and more! This is wat it has! no slip handle bars, detach rail so if u wanna have one paddle or two, a solar panel for "auto move"( a divice that rows the paddle for u), a sender, water proof heat generator, heat pad for generator(paddles easy when heated), cups( or walls) on paddle flat parts so it scoops water easier and rows faster! On the auto move, it has, 360 degrees joints to move the paddle, strong grips to hold the paddle, and an adjust bar to fit the kind of boat you are in!

If you are interested,

Remote controlled kid or pet gate: This idea is a gate that's used to keep little kids or pets out of or in a room.to stop kids from pushing it down it will clamp on to the side of the wall.and with a scissor design it can fold up at the touch of a botton by remote for easy storing and still holds up strong.

Kay (25.11.2012)

I have at least three good multi- million dollar inventions that I'm waiting to sell. I had an offer once for ten thousand, but I turned it down because they wouldn't give me royalties. I have had at least 2 of my inventions stolen from me in the past. Who can I trust? People who has became famous for their inventions won't even give the resources on how they made it, I think that is very selfish.

Amitsingh Rajput (02.11.2012)

i have so many ideas that will make lots of money for company who are interset in manufacturing them.
ideas like hybrid plane that has mechanical in front and electrical propeller behind. the wing section will controlled by hydrulic while the tail section will be controled by electric.plus many more ideas.


contact me at anoju@ymail.com for more details on this ideas.

Clear iphone (24.09.2012)

I made the first clear iphone 4 in the world havnt shold people but i put lots of pictures in google images its like write some think back ill sale it i have 6

corrections. (21.08.2012)

how about an idea of a hybrid plane that has mechanical in front and electrical propeller behind. the wing section will controlled by hydrulic while the tail section will be controled by an electric if so possible. this plane will have two engines and a backup power generator and also a battery power storage.The mechanical engine like cesna or any propelled engine like a ligth aircraft engine and electrical engine like a dc motor.The mechanical or jet engine will be mounted in the front or back of the airplane with a big alternator or generator capable of charging the storage battery,starting the engine and while runing or spining the dc motor behind the airplane at the same time. The backup generator will be in use incase the mechanical engine fail or run out of gas and also to gain altitude, the power generator will have an extra gas tank plus it could tap in the gas used to power the mechanical engine for extended range incase of emergency .the design of the fusalage of airplane be like that of an biger plane where the alternator, battery storage,backup generator and maybe the dc motor with propeller will be kept below the passenger cabin. another concept will be two mechanical or jet engine on each side of the wing of the plane and and the electrical engine behind like a dc 9 or 10. there will be a charging outlet to charge the plane when it is not in fligth.to eliminate drag the rpm of both types of an engine will have to be the same. the rpm of the electric plane set to match the mechanical engine and the changed when in an emergency to to compensate for the lost engine.

Another Idea
you ever thougth about hooking two or three big motorcycle engines that push a cabine forword behind and it be hybrid or maybe not.how would you send transmission to the engines?
you wil have to use dc motor hooked behind the cabin or car change gears.it will be hybrid so that you can revise and drive on when you run out of gas and also motorcycle enging save gas than automotive engine.

Another Idea
a hybrid boat with with the concept of the hybrid plane exceptthat it is only driven by two electric engine only or maybe one machanical in middle of the two electrical engine if possible. it will have a back up power too plus solar. this boat will have the abillity to turn quickly by reducing the speed of one of the electrical engine whill turning.

Seeing that texting and talking on cell phones. has raised the accident and fatality rate in motorvehicle accidents by triple insurance industry would probably subsidise funds to put like a motion chip in cell phones so while your driving or walking u can. not use the phone . this would be extremely cost effective and the cell company that does this will have all parents aboard.good publicity as well save our generation ahead.

Take a look at our new startup. The website is still in development, but we are interested in protecting people’s ideas, while still being able to promote them for purchase by companies. It is a free site to use and will have a low cost premium service with additional benefits for those interested. We are marketing to companies to submit requests for ideas for their products or services, which can be satisfied by ideas from our users. We are working with IP attorneys to assist us with the protection aspect, while still getting recognition for idea sellers and creating a social buzz for companies that purchase these ideas.

I have a question. I work at a restaurant and I came up with my own sauce which we now use in the store, am I entitled to money? Because I haven't seen a dime..

Pet, thanks sharing your thoughts on this subject.

Yes, investors and others may steal your ideas. To avoid this there are legal steps you can take to protect your idea before presenting it to investors (of course that demands funding too so back to square one for many people).

Choose your investors wisely, I would suggest. Investigate their reputation and what they have done for other start ups in the past. This is one of the few times gut feeling can be really helpful in business.

Then, what if somebody did steal your idea. Bad luck, or maybe not. If one investor steals your idea, great, if he becomes successful then sue him and you will make money from his success - just like the Winklevoss brothers did with Facebook (they made much more money this way than they ever would if they had developed the business).

If the investor that stole your ideas didn't pull it of, well you can learn from that too. And of course, sue him.

So, to follow on this great post, if One uses a confidentiality agreement in order to try and protect your idea, how can One be sure the nodding & agreement won't take place while your ideas are milked in the back ground.

From experience, the companies have taken the ideas & run as fast as possible with it. Worse than this, a number of ideas have been sold with the company agreeing to develop further only to bury the concept in the deepest, darkest filling cabinet they have in order to protect existing market share.

Board room decisions run riot with the best laid plans from experience. Would be greatly interested in how to insulate against Board room Big Brother tactics.

Here is a typical PROBLEM - having to continuously stop the microwave in order for it to stir the food & warm evenly?

Yes you Guessed it I made one & it works – So have others – It's now a race to be market leader..

Had to make a website fast to sell idea & that's when the skill set life had give me fell short..

So what to do? Searched the web & found the Web's voted number One trainer for starting a business website & much more. Working from home now, earning a Job replacing income is finally obtainable.

You know what! Philippines is well known for it is the texting capital of the world. So why not convert every text to money like texting an advertisement to your contact and when your contact read it, it will instantly generate an income per text that your contact will read. If you like my idea just email me at ben2saphath@gmail.com. tnx.

game companies never want game related ideas! Better focus your energies elsewhere. Tech support lines in any game company are full of kids and basement grown adults calling along the lines of ideas that have been done so many times before. I mean one guy called about a game called Stockholm rape chase where you can chase naked people on the streets of Stockholm and mount them.

I THINK mostfungames SHOULD get a few more
3D games and have some celebritys voices like morgan freeman as a assasin. 3D wrestling games on mostfungames.com. adults and kids like wrestling get some cat fights and some of wwe, raw,war, ecw wrestlers. then alot of people will play their games
