I don't know what has prompted this sudden influx of emails where people alert me to the fact that they have a commercial idea that they wish to sell, but something has happened recently to increase these emails to one or two a week rather than one or two every six months. Perhaps Adland is listed on some commercial producers site somewhere? Your guess is a good as mine. Winner of the most cryptic email goes to the fella today who emailed via our contact form simply:
[name] sent a message:
i have an idea for a commercial . (301) XXX-XXXX
Now, it seems ripe to be put in the FAQ that we don't produce ads here and can't help people sell their ideas, but I don't know how to best explain the obvious. Perhaps since you adgrunts seem to be hopping on eggnog, you could suggest a few good replies? ;) Have at it, what would you tell them?
