For years I have been unhappy with the traditional invention help options available to most inventors.
Many inventors do not know who they can trust or what to do with their invention ideas. This is very understandable considering when the average inventor goes onto the internet looking for help for their invention all they get is auto responders and sales pitches. If they do speak to a real person then the trouble really begins. When this happens, you can expect the hard sell and it won't be cheap.
Most of the inventors I speak with are being asked to pay $10,000-$16,000 by invention promotion companies that will "get them a patent" or "represent their invention to industry".
If this sounds familiar then read on. If you have an invention idea that you want to get to market through licensing or selling your product so you can start making money, you need invention help you can trust.
There are many different forms of invention help. One of the best is the United Inventors Association. This organization is like the gold standard when it comes to looking out for inventors interests. Make sure to check them out.
Three other resources are helpful for inventors. These include:
Inventors Digest is by far the best monthly publication available for Inventors. This magazine is all about inventors and the invention process with stories of success sprinkled in to add flavor. Most of the articles are written by professions that are either successful inventors themselves are serve the invention industry. The only negative thing I can say is that sometimes they push their sister company Everyday Edison's too much.
If you are a serious inventor and want to be successful then I suggest that you join an inventors club. There is just no substitute for the experience and exposure you can get at a local club that you can attend on a monthly basis. The connections you will meet alone are worth spending your time to attend.
The final thing that might help you to be successful as an inventor is to read invention books. There are several good ones on the market that give you a more in depth examination of the invention process. Personally I have a large library that I refer to occasionally. A few of the better books include Patent it Yourself and How To License Your Million Dollar Idea.
If you are low on cash and need inventors help with making prototypes you might look to local technical colleges or better yet try to do it yourself.
