Inventors: Learn from a Pro How to Create a Product That Sells!
Invention: Get On The Shelf - How to get your Invention Selling & Making Money was written by Mark Christopher, the inventor’s helper who assisted two of the final Top 10 inventors in the Walmart “Get on the Shelf” contest.
Relying on his market savvy and years of experience, Christopher identifies the steps necessary to bring a good idea to market. This information is crucial to new inventors, because the failure rate for the uninitiated is huge. To quote one of the largest invention advisers and inventor helpers’ websites:
“From 2008-2010, we signed Submission Agreements with 4,756 clients. As a result of our services, 106 clients have received license agreements for their products, and 30 clients have received more money than they paid us for these services.”
The average fee for those services was $21,500 per inventor. So that means that in three years only 30 people out of 4,756 made more than $21,500 with their inventions. But the invention advisers did well in spite of that, because their model, as is true of most “inventor helpers,” is to make money off the inventors and not the inventions.
You don't have to fall victim to this type of "help"!
Get On The Shelf will teach you the following:
Assessing whether you have what it takes to bring a product/invention to market
Identifying whether you have a viable idea
Protecting your idea/invention
Making a prototype for your idea/invention
Your personal invention kit
... and much more, all from a successful inventor who is willing to share his extensive knowledge and experience with you.
