FREE Initial Idea Evaluation
Message from CEO Jim Riordan
My ideas have sure been worth money and I hope yours are too. The magic
here is to find out BEFORE you spend time and money on an idea, whether it is
an idea that will make you money. I invent for a living and that means
inventing for money. Remember this: There are way more good ideas than there
are ideas that make money. So, how can you find out which of your ideas may be
I am assuming by now that you want to invent for money. When inventing for
money, it is of utmost importance that you be able to identify winners and losers
as quickly as possible so that you spend the majority of your time pursuing
winners. Trust me if you do this long enough, you will have losers. The trick
is to have far more winners than you have losers. Then you will be inventing for
a living and inventing for your dreams. I have a thoroughly proven system that
will teach you how to spot the winners and avoid the losers quickly.
I share with you the following information about myself not to toot my own
horn but to give you my background such that it will lend credence when I tell
you that I know for a fact that if you want to make money, the first step you
must take with each new idea is to determine objectively whether the idea is worth
Over 28 years ago, I first told my co-workers about ideas I had for new
products. Many of them said I didn't have a chance of selling my ideas or products,
or making money with them. They did not believe in themselves and they did not
believe that I or they could "break out" of the wage earner "cage" simply by
selling their ideas.
Well, they were wrong. I quit my last real job 25 years ago and started my
own business to manufacture and sell my own products. My dad told me when I was
young that there were only two kinds of people in this world, constructive and
destructive. He encouraged me to be constructive, my mom encouraged curiosity. So, when I first decided I wanted to invent for a living, the only criteria I set
for myself was that I would never invent anything that was designed to destroy or
inflict damage and I would not do any pornographic products for anyone. I'm not
a "dove" or a "prude", I just wanted to leave those products for others to do. That criteria worked well for me and I have never broken my own rules. Since
then I have conceived, patented, manufactured, and marketed several of my own
products as well as helping to develop and market many of my clients' products. I have helped my clients make millions of dollars with their ideas. I have sold
my ideas, trademarks and products to small businesses and to multinational
companies including 3M, one of the world's best and largest corporations. Believe
me, the thrill of receiving money for your ideas never gets old. Inventing
for a living has certainly made my dreams come true and I still love it today!
One novelty item I invented and sold, which you may recognize,
was the LIGHT BEER MUG. This unique mug had a plastic base
containing a battery powered light, which lit up when you picked it up, and made
any beer a "LIGHT" beer. I sold hundreds of thousands of these mugs, which people
paid ten dollars each for, through chain stores and gift shops coast to coast and
through mail order catalogs. I also sold them to Anheuser Busch for their
"BUD LIGHT" promotions, and to All Brand importers for "Moosehead Light"
promotions.. .All with FREE promotion and little or no advertising expenses.

Another one of my products which you may recognize is the
Solder Quick solder feeder, a device which attaches to pencil
type soldering irons, feeds solder to the tip, and allows you to solder using only
one hand, leaving the other hand free to hold components, wires, etc. I
negotiated with a plastic injection molding company to put up all of the money for the
molds, grew the product line on a shoestring, and in no time at all I was selling
the tool to N.A.S.A, Hewlett Packard, IBM, Harris Corporation, Ford Aerospace
and hundreds of small companies coast to coast. Again, I was able to get the
product IN-HAND and SELL IT with almost no money out of pocket. My products were
featured on television and in magazines and newspapers all over the U.S. One
product in particular, was featured in publications in 17 countries.

MY EVALUATION SYSTEM WAS DEVELOPED OUT OF NEED
After the years of experience gained from all of the products I have launched
for myself and for my clients, I developed a system of evaluating new products that
can help you spot your winning ideas and help you avoid the losers. I want to help
you become even more successful than I was. How can you do that? By using my proven
system for spotting winners and avoiding losers, you have the chance to take advantage
of what took me 25 years to learn. You can put it to work for yourself today. This
is not hype and jive, just facts and logic. My system was developed because I
recognized and filled a need for myself and for my clients. We all had the same
nagging question every time we had an idea." HOW CAN I TELL WHETHER MY IDEA IS WORTH
MONEY?" Certainly, there was a great need for a reliable and proven system, which
anyone could use, to help determine whether their idea or product was going to be a
money maker or a costly loser.
Some of my individual and corporate clients were very concerned about revealing
their ideas for fear they would be copied or stolen. They recognized that they had
to find out whether their idea had value but they wanted to find out WITHOUT TELLING
ANYONE WHAT THEIR IDEAS WAS.
The major concern when trying to find out if an idea is worth money is, where can
you go to get an HONEST second opinion evaluation? If your idea is not worth pursuing,
do you think a greedy invention marketing company will tell you that? Heck no! All
they want is your money. They never see an idea they don't like. Some bottom feeding
patent attorneys are that way as well. The good ones are NOT that way.
Many Inventors have complained to me that they had given "invention marketing
companies" hundreds and even thousands of dollars only to find out after the fact
that their idea was not worth pursuing. These people felt "ripped off" in a big way. Some had mortgaged their home to pay $5,000 or more to these scam artists before
they realized they were paying big money and would get NOTHING in return. Instead
of getting closer to realizing their dreams they were getting farther away from it. Using my system you will be able to tell before you ever approach anyone whether you
have a bad, good or great product. And you will have the right questions to ask of
those who purport to have your best interests at heart.
YOU CAN SELL YOUR IDEAS YOURSELF
I have absolutely proven that if you want to invent for a living, the number
one secret is knowing which ideas should be dropped like a stone and which ideas
should be aggressively pursued. The second secret is knowing how to go about
selling the good ideas and putting money in your pocket. My system shows you how
to do both.
My system was developed and proven, over more than twenty-five years, to help
my clients decide which of their ideas could make big money. Using this system,
my clients have experienced the joys and financial rewards of selling their ideas
and products. My clients have also avoided spending big dollars on flops. Many
have written to me telling me that while they are sorry their idea did not pass
the evaluation, they were extremely happy that they did not jump and spend money
FAR BETTER CHANCES THAN THE LOTTERY
Maybe soon, you can join the ranks of those who are financially independent
thanks to their own ideas. You have a lot better chance of having a moneymaking
idea than you do of hitting the lottery. In addition, Uncle Sam offers you, the
inventor, an incentive to help keep America the leader in new products and
technology by allowing you to deduct from your income tax most of the expenses
you incur in developing your idea and starting a business.
There has never been a better time to get started on your own path to success. With the incredible opportunities for inventors to market their products on the
internet and through email, there is no better way to give yourself job security
and make yourself layoff and recession proof. All you need are the tools and
direction. And, you must follow through.
FIND OUT FAST
Now, you can take our FREE on-line Initial Idea Evaluation and learn quickly
in the privacy of your own home, and without revealing your idea to anyone,
whether your product has potential to succeed. If your product idea passes
the Initial Idea Evaluation with a score of 60% or more, your next step is to do
a thorough and complete product evaluation using our industry acclaimed, 36
point system "HOW
TO EVALUATE THE POTENTIAL FOR SUCCESS OF A NEW PRODUCT OR
TECHNOLOGY", available on CD to make a final determination of whether your
product is truly a winner or loser. You will use this evaluation system
on every idea you have for the rest of your life. You can quickly tell
whether an idea has the potential to make you financially independent.
You can quickly tell whether an idea has the potential to be the one that will
free you from your present job, allow you to fire your boss and start
your own business. And, remember, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO REVEAL YOUR IDEA
TO ANYONE, AND YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PAY FIVE HUNDRED TO FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS
TO SOMEONE ELSE TO FIND OUT WHETHER YOUR IDEA IS WORTH MONEY.
THE NEXT STEP: THE CONCEPT TO PROFIT SYSTEM
If your product idea comes through the CD Complete Evaluation and emerges
as a winning product with a score of 60% or more, you are now ready to get started
on your own personal path to profit.
This is where the fun really begins. Most inventors, even after they
know that they have a winning idea, have absolutely no idea what to do next.
That is why we developed our acclaimed Concept
to Profit System which walks
you systematically through every single step of the process. The Concept
to Profit system consists of two parts, a wall poster and a CD.
||Your plastic laminated 24 X 36 inch Path to Profit poster
hangs on the wall and shows you every step of the inventrepreneurial
process from idea to "I did it." The poster contains every single
step from initial concept through collecting and protecting your
profits using 28 individual charts which will guide you along your
own custom tailored path to profit. Every "step block" on each
chart depicted on the poster contains a number that corresponds
to an explanatory text page in your Concept to Profit CD.
You simply use a dry erase marker to check off each step as you
complete it. You will use this poster for every product you
do from now on as you invent for a living.
||Your Concept to Profit CD contains hundreds of text
pages describing each step depicted on the charts in great
detail, yet in easy to understand language. All you do
is choose the next step which applies to your product and
then go to the page describing your next step in detail. You
can print out each page if you like and you will end up with a guide
book that is tailored specifically to your product and your
choices. Since you make choices along each step of the way,
based on your specific product, you read or print out only the
text that applies to your particular product, saving you an
immense amount of research time compared to any other method
THIS IS THE ONLY SYSTEM OF ITS KIND
This is the only PROVEN system of its kind anywhere at any price. It
includes the documents you need to file with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office
in order to establish an officially recognized date of conception of your idea. It contains a Confidential Non-Disclosure Agreement that you will use whenever
you have to reveal your product to companies who may be interested in purchasing
your ideas or products. It contains a Non Competition Agreement that you will
use whenever you have to reveal your product to companies who may be interested
in manufacturing your products for you. It gives you the steps for conducting
a patent search yourself, tells you how to decide whether to file for a patent
or not and it tells you how and where to find the companies which are most likely
to purchase your idea or your product. The Concept to Profit system is
guaranteed to be the best tool you have ever seen for helping inventors to make
money from their ideas. You must agree that this system will directly and
immediately benefit you or you may return it for a refund. Your satisfaction
is always guaranteed!
THIS IS ALL YOU NEED!
There is absolutely nothing else to buy. There are no hidden
gimmicks. The Concept to Profit system includes everything you need,
and for less money than the cost of one hour of the average office visit to
a patent attorney or marketing consultant.
If you are sincerely interested in selling your ideas or products, and you
can see the tremendous possibilities and fulfillment that inventing for a living
offers, then follow through! ACT NOW! This system WILL help you to achieve
SUCCESS as it has myself and my clients.
YOU WILL USE THIS SYSTEM THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
Once you have used the Concept to Profit system on one of your ideas, you will always use it. From it you will learn life skills that will remain with you as long as you have
ideas. I hope that using my system you will develop your evaluation and inventrepreneurial skills
such that you will be able to help others benefit from their ideas as well.
