I have a great idea for a commercial. How do I propose it to the company?

Question by applgrrl1: I have a great idea for a commercial. How do I propose it to the company?
I have an idea for a commercial for a huge, world-wide company. How do I go about proposing it to them? How do I make sure they can’t just take my idea without my permission? I have no idea where to start with this… Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Answer by Jim L
There is really no practical way to do this. You could write a script for a commercial, date it and then put a “Copyright 2010 Your Name” on the script. You don’t have to register it with the US Patent and Trademark office, unless the company tried to use the exact script without permission.

It is highly unlikely they will use your idea, one in a million. That is nothing against your idea, it may be fantastic. But they pay an ad agency millions of dollars to come up with commercials based on their precise marketing plan and target market they are aiming at. Also, many promotional campaigns are carefully planned to fit together, where magazine ads supplement TV which supports radio and so forth. Unless you have spent hours researching their marketing plan, it is unlikely that your ad will send the message they are looking for.

If you still want to try, call the company’s main number or go to their web site and ask who their ad agency is. Then call the ad agency to find out who their head account executive is for that account. Then talk to that person and pitch your idea to him or her.

Often times people have unrealistic ideas of what is actually going to work and how fast they’re going to get there.

Answer by A Cat.
A web design company wouldn’t buy it, because web design companies are only paid to design websites for paying customers with specific requirements.

But your site idea sounds pretty much exactly like marketwatch.com

Search Engine Optimization Charlotte – Charlotte SEO – The Idea People

Basic search engine optimization is a series of pre-determined (somewhat generic and automated) steps that most “web companies” build-in to your website design. Or you may have seen other companies that offer their version of search engine optimization by charging a Flat Fee monthly and giving you one of their phone numbers to track calls. Both strategies are flawed from the beginning…only meant to pad their pockets and provide a zero level of support, results, and service until you cancel. Helping the search engines rank your website – Advanced search engine optimization from The Idea People includes a series of research, stages, planning, and filters that come together into a custom plan to help the search engines rank your website. A large portion of our advanced seo program includes the human usage and overall experience factor that users receive when interacting with your website. We are different because we blend these human accounts into our advanced seo plan for your website optimization. With the human usage factors engaged, we review each page of your website to ensure that the user experience, page content, rich text, credibility factors, and images are properly aligned with the total page’s ranking goal. We firmly believe that each individual page of your website must be optimized individually from the rest of the website. We want the most highly-relative user experience based on the content and ranking strategy we develop for each page. Once we submit your
