The secret success of inclusion 

Idea Hunt successfully opens up direct channels of communication with your customers, because it’s a nontraditional medium, built with the express purpose of doing just that. We’re not a social media channel first, engagement engine second. We aren’t lying in wait in people’s mailboxes, hoping we make it past the front door, instead you can invite them in and engage them on our platform.


Enables your customers to engage with you, without doing so on their private social media channels, without you entering their home via direct mail or filling up their email inbox. In short, Idea Hunt allows your customers to come to you and engage when they’d like, as they’d like.

Becomes a Collaborative Environment

The Idea Hunt platform makes it easy for people across the world to collaborate and co-create, to provide feedback, ask questions and learn from each other. Because you don’t have to friend or be approved by an individual to ask them a question or start a conversation, the engagement happens organically and in real time.

Community Building

When users accept the invitation or sign up to join Idea Hunt, they create a profile, adding a photo, and a bit of information about themselves. This personalizes their ideas and feedback on the platform, enabling others to get to know with whom they are engaging.

It’s fun! (Gamification)

By adding prizes and assigning point values to different behaviors or actions in the platform, we have added another level of excitement. With Idea Hunt, you can entice your customers to engage with you rather than beg.
