If You're an Inventor - I Can Help

I’d like to get right to the point; my services are not for everyone. If you’re the type of person that likes to get involved with the process, likes to save money where you can, you aren’t afraid to dive into an unfamiliar field and educate yourself, and are persistent, diligent and don’t get discouraged at the thought of trying something new, then I can help you. This is the most economical way to market your idea. There are no contracts and you can stop at any point. You have complete design control and you can market or license your idea to whoever you choose.

However…

If you’re looking for an invention company that takes your idea and does everything for you, (and I do mean everything), then my services are not for you. This is the least profitable way to bring your idea to market. With most invention companies, you usually have a contract. When they do everything for you, it can get expensive. Most of the time, the Invention companies maintain design and marketing control of your product. They decide who they market it to, and when they market it. They decide whether you can even post a YouTube video of your product because they own part of the rights to your product. This may be what you prefer and, let’s face it, it’s a lot easier when someone does everything for you.

What I CAN do...

The Imagination is Endless

media pic what I can do for you
  1. Design your product for the most cost effective manufacturing and unique and effective patenting.
  2. Brainstorm with you on ways to make your product unique, to stand out or offer something that your competition doesn’t have.
  3. Create 3D virtual prototypes
  4. Test models for operation
  5. Create CAD files for manufacturing & 3D printing
  6. Create physical prototypes or refer you to relevant developers who would use the CAD files to produce your physical model.
  7. Create marketing pictures, videos & presentation files. I can help you with tag lines, product names or product copy. I love advertising and making your product more exciting by creating a feeling into the marketing materials.
  8. Create patent drawings for provisional or utility patents.
  9. I work directly with the attorneys or patent agents for you and supply them with the requested drawing views, exploded views, numbered parts list with drawings etc. If you don’t have a patent agent or attorney, I can refer you to the one I use.

What I DON'T do...

  1. Write the patent. I can refer you to who I use myself, but the Utility patent as a minimum should be left to a patent agent or patent attorney.
  2. Complete product searches. You can do this yourself if you’re diligent and patient enough. If not, you can hire a professional.
  3. Market your product for you. Although marketing is in a world of it’s own and there are some companies that are very, very good at it, it doesn’t come without a price. Marketing can be expensive and if you’re on a budget, this can be an area worth taking a shot at yourself. There are many avenues to exposure on the net.
  4. Licensing your product for you. Here is where you can learn a tremendous amount by researching the niche you’re in and which smaller companies might need a new small product to put themselves on the map. Finding the correct person within the company to approach is key. You can do this.

What YOU Can Do For Yourself

  1. Search for your product using Google images and Google Patents.
  2. Do some market analysis on your own to decide if your product is relevant to the market today. Check keyword searches and blog postings. See if there’s a need or if your product solves a problem. Even forming a focus group can help. Check out my Product Considerations page for some more info.
  3. Write and file a provisional patent with the USPTO yourself. Leave the Utility patent for an attorney.  Also, the Utility patent could be paid for by whoever you licensed or sold your product to. Just a note; a provisional patent is cheaper to file and doesn’t have the same requirements as a utility patent.
  4. Find and approach potential buyers or licensees of your product and do the presentation yourself using the marketing materials we develop from your virtual model.
  5. Contact manufacturers and give them the CAD files we develop to quote off of. I can recommend to you several good mold maker for plastics or refer you to a relevant manufacturer that aligns with your product if you need help.
  6. Market your idea for a fraction of the cost of an advertising agency to relevant sources and niche sites. Understand that you don’t have the power or expertise of a good ad agency but, if your finances are limited, you can do a fairly good job yourself.
  7. Contact blogs, magazines, social media sites, all to promote or launch your product yourself. For some products, you can consider funding sites such as kickstarter.com and indiegogo.com

A Bit More Info

If you’re an inventor, and have an idea and need help to get it up and going, then you’ve come to the right place.  I offer Inventors assistance and support in whatever capacity they need.

I made a page, specifically for inventors, called “How to Start an Invention.” On this page I try to address the process in a general way.  If you simply want to get started, you can call or email me directly. I can usually come to a conclusion fairly quickly as to whether you need my services by just talking to you for a few minutes. This way, in a short phone call or email, you can get a direction to take.

Familiarizing myself with your project, answering your questions and offering a path for you to take, is all free of charge. I take no money down and I don’t require a deposit. You’re not charged a dime until you’re sure you can use my services and that we both understand the path you’d like to take. This way you can relax while we review your project.

If you need a 3D model for printing or, an eventual mold, detailed technical drawings, presentation files, or even animations of your product assembling, then I can help you. I can also produce marketing videos for YouTube and realistic, high resolution pics for flyers, posts to Instagram, Facebook, or any other social media outlet.

From a data filled 3D model, CAD files can be extracted for just about any computer aided manufacturing process. You can see your prototype virtually to check for appearance and preliminary function, and then a 3D print for prototype testing which will then lead to a manufacturing process that fits your product.

CAD is a far superior way to draw and keep track of your information. I have a passion for helping inventors and am very interested in helping them to succeed.

I have confidentiality agreements to protect your intellectual property. You can be assured that your ideas and inventions will remain yours. If you want, I will work with you to help you possibly expand on the design for a more efficient, cost effective product. Either way, whatever designs come from our collaboration are owned 100% by you.

I don’t get into partnerships or sharing of profits. “I’m just the CAD guy.” If what you’re looking for is solely my drawing ability, and not my design help, that’s great too. I’m here to help in whatever capacity is appropriate.
