How do we pay for the Free Kindling service that we send out each week?
That has been the question we have been asking ourselves.
It takes a ton of research. A silly amount of hours. And a crazy amount of compiling. So Free is not cheap. But Free is worth fighting for.
Conventional thinking would be to find a sponsor for it. But we believe in the power of ideas, and we think sponsorship is a passive and an inert thing. At least, most of the time. And that doesnâ€™t sit well with us.
So we had an idea that there are lots of companies out there who have questions they are trying to solve too. And yet they keep coming up with the
same conventional answers.
So what if you could ask a crowd of very bright people?
So what if you could ask 4,500 of the smartest thinkers on the planet what they think the answer is. Those who genuinely think different.
people who read the Kindling want us to stick around, to stay being free, to keep inspiring them. And we think they would donate answers that would help your business because they want to help us.
It may not work. But, it is an interesting idea. And, hey, you never know unless you try new ways of solving old problems.
So if your company has a question, let our crowd solve your business problems.
Let 4,500 people think about your business problem and think differently about it. They are good at doing that. And the answers they give you may change your business. They will challenge you. They will surprise you. And may even change how you do business in the future.
You only pay if you are impressed/inspired by the answers. No small print.
Do you have anything to lose?
Here are some questions you may have of us:
1, Do I have say the name of my company? Nope.
2, Do the answers have to be made public? Thatâ€™s your call.
3, What if I am not happy with the answers? Then, you pay nothing.
4, What happens if I am delighted with the answers? Then you pay.Â You help fund Free.
5, How do I start? Email: email@example.com and she will send you more info.
