Help for Inventors

Postby MichelleJ » Tue Jun 02, 2009 4:39 am

I found an interesting website while surfing today where help is available to all new inventors. Especially in developing countries. They will help with the manufacturing, marketing and registering of new inventions, if anyone is interested here is the link:

Let me know what you think of this.

Hi, Michelle:

Thanks for finding and posting the link to this informative website.

First off, the homepage is very nicely done: great info and comfortable to read. I see the Google PageRank is PR6 - I know some of our marketing mentors caution that PR is not as important as it used to be, but still ... if Google has given this site a PR6, they are doing something right.

ITN appears to be a service that allows companies and individuals to license, buy and sell ideas, inventions, patents and trademarks. In other words, once you become a member, you can review what others have to offer and negotiate to make purchases, or you can post your ideas, inventions, etc., and try to sell them.

In order to do this, you must become a paid member. The cost for members in developed countries is $99.95. The cost for members in developing countries is $9.95.

The site boasts more than 20,000 registered members. Looks like something worth looking into for those interested.

Thanks again for posting this info for our forum members.

GT :)

This site looks well done.

Since this site is my competition I must give it a better look.

He goes directly to monetization in the first paragraph.

I would like to see some verifiable success stories.

If the products are on the market it should be easy.

Making money when we sleep is a great goal and it can be done.

Hard work is required to go from idea to profit.
Massive success to you.

I just hope that this can be of use to anyone who is looking to invent something and needs some help with selling or marketing it. I thought it looked pretty interesting.

I think you're right Michelle. We need several options when it comes to something so important. Many people will sink their life savings into their inventions and they don't want to trust someone just because of something one person says about them. They should thoroughly check things like this out and you are just giving them more options. Kudos!

Thanks Mary

I am not an inventor but imagine that many people who are gifted inventors tend to be less savvy when it comes to the practical nuts and bolts of marketing their inventions and earning what they should.

Good point Michelle. If they are going to put a lot of money into a new invention, it would probably be smart for them to hire someone who really knows what their doing when it comes to marketing it.

That looks like a really great website, even for non-inventors there is a lot of interesting stuff to view there. Thanks for the link.

Don't you have to have certain criteria to get a .org on your URL? I was thinking the site had to be "checked out" by government or state groups to be a .org site. That could be construed as more reputable if that's the case. Does anyone know what I'm talking about or am I just making this all up in my head? :mrgreen:

Yes, the original intention was to reserve .org for non-profit organizations, associations, philantropic and cultural groups, etc.

There is no government "stamp of approval" needed. And unfortunately, expired .org url's can be purchased for purely money making purposes, often for purposes completely opposite to those of the original registrants.

More info at [url]http://www.pir.org[/url].

P.S. Innovation Initiative Co-operative Inc. meets the original criteria, as it is a not-for-profit cooperative by and for its inventor and innovator members.

I just learned something new today. Never realized before that .org had been reserved for official organizations always thought it was just a matter of what was available and personal choice. This is very interesting.

I would not take that as a general rule to trust something with a .org.

Have seen plenty of .org's cybersquatted or worse.

I think your original thought was more in line with reality.
