New Invention Ideas - What To Do Now!
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Inventors are very creative and gifted people. They look at things differently and ask the question, "How can I make it better?". This is where everything comes to a halt simply because of not knowing what to do next. This article is about just that - what to do next.

I have worked with thousands of inventors who have held on to their ideas for years because of simply not knowing what to do, where to go and who to trust. They speak to ten different people and get just as many different answers back. This leads to confusion and little action taken. The idea dies never having been taken seriously.

The first thing you must do right down is write a description of your new idea - get it down on paper! Write down exactly what it is and what industry it benefits such as sporting goods, automotive or electronics. It's important to identify your industry first to establish usefulness - a requirement for the patent.

Next, make a sketch! Every prototype begins with a sketch. You don't need to be an artist or hire a draftsman. Just doodle it on the proverbial "napkin" so that a patent attorney or other professional can see what's on YOUR mind. Sketching an idea is a fun activity. Many new inventors are shy and feel embarrassed about their ability to draw. Don't be shy about doing this. It's very easy and keep in mind that every design is subject to change at first. It doesn't need to be perfect. So draw that first draft and get it out of you. It will inspire you to do a second draft later that can be used by a graphic illustrator at a later stage.

Thirdly, speak with a patent attorney or patent agent about your new idea to see if a patent search is necessary. Don't discuss your idea with anyone who will be pessimistic or biased. Eventually, a 3rd party evaluation can be done. This is where most inventors loose faith simply because a family member or friend doesn't think it's a good idea and the inventor gives up or hides the information from the world. Always consider the source! Don't get upset because you shared your idea with the bag boy who giggled at the supermarket or the nail technician who gave you negative feedback. The only one who has to like and believe in the idea is you. You must champion your idea to the marketplace. After all, how many computers or Smart phones were there when Bill Gates started Microsoft? Not too many, right?

Finally, if you really believe in your idea and that it is good and beneficial, it's time to seek professional assistance who can assist you with preparing market research, business plans and represent you in speaking with a company who may want to buy or license your new idea. There are companies that can assist you with prototypes, marketing, research and patents. Make sure you are comfortable in your communication with an invention assistance company. Some are very professional and others a bit pushy. Remember that professionalism is the most important thing.

In summary, getting direction and professional help isn't that hard. Speaking with the right people who can review your invention information objectively is the first thing you should do right now. Find professional assistance that will explain the business to you. Make sure that you understand patents and how to protect your idea first. If you don't protect your idea design it can be copied and your rights to the invention can be infringed on.
