Ramadan mubarak, may Allah bless you all!
Instead of punishing, Fifa should have fed him … zombiness is not a crime, it is a disease!
I would like to buy your idea for a marketplace for ideas. How much?
you want buy it, because wallet?
Just curiosity, how much do you think this “thermometer” idea cost? How much would you have paid for it?
i mentioned in that post, i don’t know i’m just guessing because i’m not pricing expert, maybe around $20 for the idea and when it turns into an item for example a logo sting, it will cost around $10 to $12 … you can calculate the earnings now!
thanks for your comments guys but i can’t really believe that ideas themselves are worthless, if there was a system which could protect the idea owner rights after the end product is sold then you couldn’t say the idea itself was worthless! everything is built on an idea! whether the creator himself is the idea owner or not, there should be an idea to make something, so the idea definitely has value, am I right?
are all the new innovative products made by the innovators themselves?! I say no, there are mostly an innovator and someone who can make something out of that innovation and sometimes these two coincide! I just don’t understand how they deal with each other so the both are satisfied! In envato marketplaces mostly these two coincide and all i want to say is that we can try to have separate innovators and producers!
So it’s mean that this idea is not so great because you don’t want to waste your time on it, don’t want to get new skills…
I can’t agree with you man … if you had an idea for a car, would you leave your life to learn how to make a car? ... did you read my example in the previous post about exploding thermometer? do you mean the customer should leave his job to learn 3d softwares and then bulid the idea himself and sell it? then he would be an author not a buyer anymore! if everyone could be an author in every category i think there would be no need to these marketplaces!
@cloneUI nice suggestion about crowdfunding but who is going to fund an idea for a template? authors? buyers?
I agree that selling ideas would be very useful sometimes, because many authors come to a point of “writer’s block”. But it is very tricky and complex to implement this kind of marketplace.
maybe someone can come up with a good solution to implement it!
You don’t want to spend some time on your idea. And you think that somebody will spend their…
i said in the first post, I do want and even love to spend time on my ideas, i just don’t have time, or in some cases i don’t have any skill to execute the idea!
i want to give an example … I remember around 1 year ago i read a thread from a buyer that suggested authors to make an AE template or motion graphics for an exploding thermometer and s/he even mentioned there are many clients for this … better to read the exact post:
I work with an advertising agency and we get a lot of requests for a thermometer that starts at 0 degrees goes all the way to the top and explodes or shoots up past the top. Im sure it would be a big seller whomever creates it. I imagine a 3d one in my head, but a creative 2d version would be nice.
i searched videohive and i couldn’t find anything to meet that clear need of a buyer! i think this idea could have been sold like $20 in the imaginary marketplace and some regular author could implement it and they both could earn from it! it is obvious that the buyer can’t implement the idea himself and should hire someone for around $100 to make it for him!
Just imagine the idea for a smartphone was exclusive to nokia and they failed really hard at realizing it. You could have had 5% of all iphone sells, but you sold to nokia who f*cked it up. I would be crying.
… i agree with you, i would be definitely crying but i also could be happy at the same time because i had earned something out of nothing but an idea! ... if i thought i could execute the idea myself or i could cooperate with someone who can do it and earn more, i would not sell the idea in this way!
thanks Creattive and Madalincmc for your great observations, i almost got convinced … now what if there was a 50% refund if you didn’t like the idea you had purchased?! or as creattive suggested, what if the ideas were freely visible to everyone?! will that solve the problems you mentioned?
Now imagine a marketplace where anybody can submit an idea. Imagine the huge number of reviewers needed to review all those ideas.
I don’t think reviewing an idea will be as difficult and time consuming as an item!
