The great thing about inventing is that you can do it anytime, anywhere. No matter where the idea for a new product comes from, you can use it to get started on your own invention. Inventing an idea is the first step in creating a new product or service that will make you money.
Here are some ways to begin:
If you have an idea for an invention, write it down as soon as possible after it comes to mind. If you wait too long, you may forget it!
It’s best to write down your idea in its simplest form. You can always add details later on.
Get feedback from friends and family members about your idea — but only after you’ve written it down and made it clear to them what the idea is all about. Don’t ask them if they like the idea until they understand what it is! Ask them if they think there’s a market for this kind of product or service. Tell them how much money they would pay for such a product or service (hint: if they say “nothing,” then maybe this isn’t such an easy sell).
If they think it’s a good idea, ask them how they would improve it or make it better. You can also ask them if they know anyone else who might be interested in your idea; this is where networking comes into play.
Do A Research On Your Idea
If you have a idea for an invention, it’s important to do some research on the product or service that you’re planning to create. Find out who else is in your market and see what they’re doing with their products or services; this way, you can get a feel for whether there’s room for another player in the field or not. If there are already several similar products out there, then maybe it isn’t such an easy sell after all!
