The Complete Guide To Inexpensive Ideaing based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
America has always been fertile ground for future inventors. So many things that the world uses on a daily basis were invented here. And, with the state of our current economy and the problems we face in so many areas, the need for new ideas (energy, sustainability, etc) is vastly important. This may be true now more than ever. Also, the path to financial freedom seems less possible today than it was just 10 years ago. But those that have a dream, attached to an invention, can breathe easier. This book was written for you! The Complete Guide to Inexpensive Ideaing (in which McKitrick has coined the word "Ideaing"), is a great, great resource for those inventors who have an idea but don't know how to get it off the ground. After a very helpful Quick Start Guide, it takes the reader through seven steps: 1. The Facts 2. The Preliminary... Design and Feasibility Study 3. The Patent Search 4. The Hunch - Do I Proceed? 5. The Fluff - Marketing 6. The Start Up - Launch Time 7. The Venture Each step includes a lot of good, practical information. At the outset the price tag seems high for this book. I know. But what you get in return will save you hundreds, and even thousands of dollars. You are not going to find such concise, thorough, and "plain speak" advice anywhere else. In fact, the templates provided themselves are worth cost of admission. They seem really helpful because they provide direction for registering a patent, creating a successful business plan, and producing a winning brochure. Oh, and you you even get your own website at no additional cost as well! Buy this book, pursue your dream, and make your idea a reality.
The book offers a quick way to get going and is an easy read. The provisional patent was easy to use but more importantly this covers the important stuff. I never knew timing could be such an issue with when to file and why you should have even people you trust sign non disclosure forms. Really a beneficial book with a lot of secrets exposed.
