Guidelines To Post

How To Post

3 Simple points to post clever ideas

  1. Write a catchy headline
  2. Write up to 100 words
  3. Choose an image or video from your phone or computer

Posting with an image or video
  • Idea Title - Choose a positive title that conveys a benefit or something different, not just the product name
  • Category - Choose the idea category from the drop down menu
  • Description - Describe the essence of the idea so people can understand it quickly. If it’s a startup state the “elevator pitch”. Write max 100 words . You can add a link for more information. You’re also welcome to include your email address if you want people to contact you.
  • Add an image or video - Choose an image or video taken that shows the product or service well An image should be between 150 pixels and 4,000 pixels height and width and below 10Mb - not a logo. If you need an image try Pixabay for free ones you can use. A video should be max 30 secs and 30Mb

Posting with a URL
  • YouTube and Vimeo videos should be posted with a URL
  • Add an idea title and category as above.
  • Copy and paste only your idea URL (website address), starting with HTTP, with no space before or after.
  • Check the preview before submitting
