marketing techniques
 
Hello,
I need some advice. I have a design patent and would like to have a manufacturer produce it. What steps should I take?

The absolute first step I would suggest, if you haven't already, is to make sure there is a real market for what you want to come up with.

The invention/patent route is generally one of the tougher routes to product success, and it's a whole lot harder (i.e., disappointing and expensive) to complete your project only to find out that the market doesn't want to buy it.

You know the old saw: "Find a need (first and foremost) and fill it."

To Your Online Profits,
Marty Foley
