Our fellow Bounty hunters,
We’re terribly sorry for the silence – we realise it’s not cool and while we aren’t making excuses, we do want you guys to know what exactly went down in the lead up to our inactivity on our last two briefs.
So in the interest of full disclosure – here it goes.
The short version of this story is that due to a series of complications and business issues that the client had to deal with we are unable to award a bounty for this brief, this is not ideal at all but it’s all we have to work with. We know it sucks but we don’t feel its right to proclaim a winner without a reward. We apologize for any inconvenience caused – however in future – we’ll strive to ensure we avoid similar situations if possible while playing open cards with you."
We have since closed this brief and it’ll be removed from our backend.
2) Brand X
The Brand X brief came to us via one of their partner agencies – who have since, stopped replying to our messages and phone calls. While we aren’t sure exactly why this would happen – we can only assume that there was a breakdown in the relationship between agency and business and as a result, our services – your services – were no longer required.
As we’re sure you can understand, relationships are of paramount importance in a business context and unfortunately, they don’t always work out.
While we really appreciate all the ideas – they were great as always btw – we have no choice but to close this brief and remove it from our backend.
Again, we’d just like to reiterate that the above are not excuses – it’s simply the lay of the land. We have learnt some valuable lessons though.
Right, so that’s that, now where to from here?
Well we have a new brief coming very soon and attached to it – a nice fat bounty.
We’ll also be launching a Facebook page which we’re hoping will become a rich source of inspiration for ideas and we’d love to see you there!
If you have any thoughts, post them in the comments – otherwise, the next time you hear from us it’ll be with a new brief.
See you on the otherside!
The Idea Bounty team.
