    can u pleas tell me what bounce means in this context?!?!

    Don't be afraid to have more than one person or group involved in a marketing program. I'mcurrently developing a direct response TV ad. I've got four principal writers writing two ads, whichseems like overkill, but working together has created a much better ad than they would have writtenindividually. Furthermore, because I have friends in the industry, I've bounced the concept off them.In many cases, I've let them read the ad and gotten their opinions."

    I've bounced the concept off them.

    "Bouncing ideas off" each other is a phrase used here to mean quick exchange of ideas. Like bouncing a ball from one person to another. The ideas go from one person to another and then back again.

    Another term is "brainstorming"
