YouZingIt is a crowdsourcing platform where individuals can sell their ideas, or work on requests for ideas.
´Creative Consumers´ is the name for those who submit ideas to YouZingIt. A summary of your idea is posted on the website and buyers must pay a fee to view the full description of your idea. If they want to use the idea they pay a licensing fee after passing what YouZingIt calls "a stringent verification process" to make sure they are genuine companies or entrepreneurs.
Another way for creative consumers to earn is to answer Requests for Ideas where companies ask for ideas on specific projects in exchange for a cash reward.
