You wonder why your idea hasn't got much traction so far? Check out our tips
on how to elevate your idea to the next level:
- Have an appealing headline - Keep your idea title catchy and short to draw
attention and evoke interest.
- Make it understandable - Make your idea understandable by the people who
will read your idea. Try to avoid using too much jargon. Try to describe your idea
in a way that your wife, husband, kids or parents would understand it.
- Make it easy to the eye - Make your idea easy to read by structuring your
description with short words, short sentences, and short paragraphs and make
use of bullet points and ordered lists.
- Visualise your idea - Use images or videos that draw attentions, convey a
strong message and help you to better describe your idea. As we like to say:
"show, don't tell"
Pro Tip: Use google image search or free stock image websites like unsplash.com
or pexels.com to find great visuals.
- Write a compelling idea summary - A strong short summary of your idea will
provide the reader with a quick overview of the most important aspects of your idea.
This will both increase your chance of people reading your idea and engaging with it.

- Proactively ask for feedback - Ask your colleagues or friends for feedback.

your idea elaborately? Is the grammar correct? Is something missing?
- Share and talk about your idea - In order to stand out of the many other
ideas and get more traction, share and discuss your idea with your colleagues,
both online and offline. And don't forget to keep on asking for feedback!
- Don't be shy to ask your colleagues for help - Invite them to work with
you on your idea! Remember, most great ideas are created in a team effort.
