Announce an idea contest in your next newsletter or mail out. Offer a free
prize for the best idea to solve a problem. It is not unusual to get several
hundred suggestions with as many as a dozen turning into money-making new
products and services.
Try offering cash as your prize. People like all kinds of prizes, but they
really respond to money.
