A patent search is a key first step to pursuing any new invention idea. Not only will it provide you with valuable information to determine if your invention is worth pursuing, but it will also help in product development so that our designers can seek to develop solutions and features that are unique to your invention. Kind of like doing your homework before you take a big test!
Filing for patent protection on an idea is the first step to begin establishing your rights to that idea. Patents protect your idea for a certain amount of time, and prevent others from copying, making and selling your idea as their own. If you haven’t established your rights to your idea then there is nothing preventing others from coming right up and grabbing it from you. It also establishes perceived ownership so you can pursue the sale or licensing of your idea if you want to go that route. Preparing and filing a patent application can be extremely difficult with many pitfalls to avoid. Our company collaborates closely with independent registered patent professionals who will work directly with you to make sure the patent application is written in a way that gives you the most possible protection and the best chance at getting the patent approved.
Design and Develop
Designing and developing your idea into a product is an important step towards seeing it realized in the market. Our experienced design teams can help you bring your creation to life using the newest computer design technology available. The difference between a good idea and a great product often comes down to how that idea is designed. A good design should take into account how the product will be used, how it will be made, and how it should feel or it’s aesthetic. Our teams will take the extra step to help you create a design that not only emphasizes the benefits of your idea but adds value as well. If you have an idea but aren’t sure how to bring it to life contact us and we can get you started.
Prototyping and 3d printing
Prototypes can be extremely helpful in conveying your exact idea to others. Professionally made prototypes will cause others to take your idea more seriously and you will be one step closer to seeing the product on store shelves. Using modern rapid prototyping methods such as 3d printing, prototyping is becoming less expensive and quicker all the time. If you want to make the real thing give us a call and our team will walk you through your options.
Many people contact us about new ideas they want to create but they don’t know where to begin. This is where engineers come in. We have engineers that can help you get a better idea of manufacturing options and offer suggestions for improvement to your design. This will help you figure out the most cost efficient methods to make your product idea.
Social Media Management
Social media management is all about creating your brand identity and connecting with your audience. One of the key tools to gauge the interest of your product or brand and control your presence is through sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Through social media you can easily monitor what people are saying about your product or service and connect with thousands of people who are looking for what you’re offering. If you are looking to get the word out about your new idea or product our social media management teams can help set up a campaign to really create that buzz. Contact us for a free consultation!
Crowdfunding is the practice of raising capital to fund your invention or new product by collecting many small investments or donations from a large number of people who want to see your idea succeed. Platforms like Kickstarter, Indiegogo and Go Fund Me are helping inventors like you raise millions of dollars for their new projects. We have crowdfunding experts that can help you setup, launch and run a campaign geared towards reaching those financial goals. If funding is a problem crowdfunding could be your solution!
Marketing your new product or service is an essential part of launching a new business or product idea. You can have the greatest idea in the world but if it doesn’t reach the right people it could end up going nowhere. Licensing is a great way to work with other companies to bring your idea to market. You agree to let them use your idea and they will make and sell it for you in exchange for financial compensation. Partnering with companies that are already established and better positioned to sell your product can be a great situation for an inventor without much capital to put behind their idea. There are companies out there that are always looking for the next big thing to buy or license. New Product Consulting collaborates closely with marketing and licensing professionals who will work directly with you to help you market your idea to companies that might be willing to buy or license your idea.
