I am so excited to tell you about a site I ran across this evening as I was browsing the web. I happened upon a site titled Ideas Culture and simply fell in love with the site’s design.
As you know, I am dabbling in Web Design and I found the site itself to be so inspiring! Then as I browsed the site and links a bit I realized the company hires ‘Idea Agents’. I, of course, just had to check it out!
First let me tell you about Ideas Culture and their business, Ideas While You Sleep.
They are a group of creative thinkers. The company is based out of Australia though their Idea Agents are from the around the world.
When businesses and individuals have problems they make contact with Ideas While You Sleep to absorb the power of the creative thinkers and find solutions to problems.
Join Vindale Research, the famous survey site where you earn rewards to share your experiences about how you use the internet.
Anyone can sign up to be an Idea Agent!
Just fill out a basic registration form and tell them a little about your specialties. You will next reach a screen that tells you a bit more about the process and the way things work. Let me break it down for you.
There is an Unpaid Trial Run First!
Once you are registered into the pool of Idea Agents you will first have to complete a Trial Challenge for free. This is like your application or testing process.
I know, I too am not a big fan of doing work for free. But I also completely understand why the process is set up this way.
The benefit of having anyone sign up MUST be countered with a filtering process to stay in budget. This also saves on time of having to give out mock trials.
So, although it can be a risky thing to work for free as part of the application process- It is a risk that you should only take if you feel it is worth the time.
Pay is Inspiring!
IdeasWhileYouSleep does compensate fairly once you get through the trial process. If you move on and are asked to complete more idea challenges you will be paid $25 in Australian Currency, which as of today’s market is equal to over $26 in
Dirty American Money.
Payout is made through PayPal. Once you have made $100 in Australian Currency you can request payout by submitting an invoice via your PayPal account.
So, basically the cash out is $100 and you request payout through PayPal (very simple thing to do).
Challenges are sent to you through Email when they become available.
Once you receive a Challenge from IdeasWhileYouSleep you will need to complete the challenge and submit your ideas by 7AM Australian Eastern Standard Time (Sydney)…I googled and that is 3pm the day before here in Eastern Indiana…oh my gosh that is so confusing!!
Here is what I suggest…go to this time zone converter site and convert the time for yourself so you can see what I mean.
Try Swagbucks, the famous rewards program that pays you for watching videos, taking surveys, shopping and more.
If you are still confused- don’t feel bad, I am too (hurts my brain a little).
My approach- just do it as soon as you get the challenge… If you are not able to complete the challenge then just reply back and let them know so your spot can be given to someone else.
The Challenge process is pretty cool and sounds like a lot of fun!
IdeasWhileYouSleep uses Random Word Association to help you brainstorm ideas. I have not been given a challenge yet. I was too excited to share this with you and did not wait for some experience.
IdeasWhileYouSleep explains that you first enter random words after you view the challenge.
Then, each random word you entered is used to spark three different ideas.
The website claims most idea agents will generate 10 ideas in about 15 minutes.
Become an Idea Agent with me!

Let me know if you choose to sign up! I am over the Galaxy excited about this one! Lets hope they get tons of businesses so I (we) can have lots of fun!!
