Raw Rewards Creativity With Cold Hard Cash

A classmate of mine, Alden Reiman, recently cofounded what I think is a brilliant idea for a website. RAW is a crowd-sourced producer of original advertising content for companies of all sizes.

The notion is simple enough—interested companies post a short pitch and users compete by submitting creative messages and tag-lines, 140 characters or less.  At the end of the week, the companies choose a winner, who claims anywhere from $20-50 in cash for each contest.

Last week, I browsed the site for no more than an hour and submitted at least a dozen entries.  The user interface was easy to use, and the character limit rewards clever and concise articulation. Sunday, they revealed the winners on Facebook, and I was surprised to see my name amongst them (you've all read my poetry...I'm not that creative).

Easiest $60 I ever made.

So, check out the site here:

Raw is catching on fast, and if you play your cards right, you just might win a couple bucks.
