Why would an inventor choose to work with an invention services company? For the same reasons consumers buy any service: convenience and cost. For example, in order to purchase invention help services comparable to those offered by InventHelp (1-800-INVENTION), an individual would have to: obtain general information and conduct basic research, hire an illustrator, write text for materials and have them printed, pay for mailings, develop a data base of companies to which ideas could be submitted, develop a list of publications, create a press release for the media and employ a patent attorney. These services purchased individually by an inventor acting alone could cost more than InventHelp's fees. In fact, many inventors could pay more for the services of a patent attorney alone than for our invention services.
What are the benefits of working with an inventor service firm? Working with a reputable company like "The Invent Help People" can give inventors the opportunity to try and submit their new invention ideas to industry in the hope of gaining a good faith review. It can be a good introduction to the world of pursuing your new product idea. At the end of your contract you may decide to stop pursuing your idea – or keep going. But hopefully you've learned enough to make an informed decision.
