The world advances every day thanks to new ideas and inventions dreamed up by people across the globe. From things to make farming easier to new medicines for a disease to getting to a different solar system—the possibilities are literally endless. Do you have a great idea or invention that could change the world but don’t know what to do with it? Read on to learn about InventHelp, a great option for getting your brilliance out into the world.
What is InventHelp?
InventHelp exists to assist you in getting your idea or invention “out there.” From obtaining patents to trademarking, there are many confusing paths to navigate and they are there to help. It is important to do things right and legally from the very first step so no one takes your idea or copies it and gets the patent or trademark first. InventHelp can refer you to an independent licensed patent attorney to arrange for a preliminary patent search and opinion. Based on the opinion, an attorney may then help prepare and file a U.S. patent application for the idea with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
The Importance of Doing Things Right
You invented something that is going to make you a lot of money. You just know it. Unfortunately, that does not mean you can begin celebrating or that the hard work is over. You must immediately protect your idea, creation or invention before someone else claims it as their own. You will need legal advice from someone who knows about patents. You will need legal advice from someone who knows about trademarks. You will need someone you can trust to keep your idea or invention to themselves while they help you navigate the complex and often times confusing maze of steps to take before you can uncork that champagne.
If you happen to know someone who has already successfully (and this is key so let’s stay it again—successfully) navigated this maze, of course, it would be ideal to work with them if they are willing to help you. If you do not have access to such a friend, InventHelp can be that friend, for a fee of course.
More than Just a Company
If you decide to go through InventHelp to help you with your idea or invention, you will get more than just a list of instructions on the steps that you need to take in order to sell your product. You will become part of a community of inventors, barnstormers and legal experts. They can help you to present your possibly black and white, sketched on napkin ideas into the finest, most high tech 3D animation currently available. They will help you pitch your ideas to their own, already established database of companies. This alone can be priceless since you cannot just show up at most companies and demand to speak with the boss.
Often times the boss, or whoever would be in charge of purchasing new inventions, will not see you, either because they are not there or they do not handle that type of thing. You would waste a lot of time, effort and gas money trying to do that all yourself. You would also need some very thick skin since most of the time solicitors, which is what you would technically be, are not usually welcome anywhere.
Since solicitors, or people who randomly show up on your doorstep trying to sell you something, are not often welcome anywhere, trade shows exist. That is where you can set up a booth to tell people about your product, do demonstrations and hand out advertising paraphernalia to people who may actually want it since they chose to attend the trade show. InventHelp is an expert on trade shows. They know which ones would be worth your time for your particular niche. Trade shows are a hard market to break into since some are run poorly, some have terrible marketing or advertising done so attendance of potential customers is low.
The bottom line is some, maybe even most, trade shows are an expensive waste of your time and money. That is not to say all trade shows are like that. There are many very good trade shows that could make or break your invention getting out there and InventHelp can help you figure out which ones. Getting to a trade show involves gas or airfare, many travel expense, entry fees, supplies for your booth such as tables and chairs, and possibly even hotel stays if the tradeshow is out of town. All of this adds up to a sum which means you really need it to be worthwhile.
These are only a handful of the great number of reasons why checking out InventHelp is a good idea if you have invented something and do not know what to do next. Congratulations on getting perhaps the biggest step done, but please do not forget it is not the only step. Time is of the essence when new ideas come to be because unfortunately there are a lot of shady people in the world. InventHelp will protect you and your ideas and inventions from them.
