Summary: This article offers tips on how to pursue invention ideas. Steps include recording your idea, designing your idea, the patent process, making a prototype, manufacturing your product and selling your idea to larger companies.
Everyone has had a moment their life where an idea to improve or invent a product has popped into their mind. Maybe they thought of a great new product idea that fills a specialty need or maybe they invented a way to improve on an already existing product. There is a huge difference between having these ideas and actually acting on these ideas. When we don’t act on our ideas, inevitably we wind up seeing our invention on a commercial or on the shelves at Walmart a few years later. That’s when we wind up kicking ourselves for not pursuing our idea.??
So what if you do have an idea that you would like to see come to fruition? How do you get your idea created, manufactured or sold? The first step is to write down your idea. Create a detailed outline describing your idea and the exact specifications of the product or how it improves on a current product. Once you have your idea on paper, it’s time to get it created or designed.??
