How to Sell Your Invention Ideas
First, Write Down Your Ideas!
Seriously, if you don't take those ideas out of your creative mind and turn them into something more concrete and moldable, then they are never going to do any good for you or for anyone else. So get out your pen or mighty keyboard and write down your ideas. Write them in tremendous detail. Work out as many kinks as you can in this raw format and try to think about any potential downsides or areas that would need to be configured by persons with more experience then you might have in certain aspects of bringing your idea to life.
If you're looking for an example, I recently published a bundle of invention ideas that I've thought about over the years. Some of them are completely unique, others have been thought about by others, though I had many more details and improvements in mind. Either way, they all went into making Inventions You Can Take to the Bank
Collect and Publish
I have found, that the fastest, easiest and most lucrative way to make money from your inventions or ideas, is to collect them and then publish them in an ebook. This prevents you from having to pay for patents or trademarks, and while you would get more money by doing that, you also don't have to find funding for all the over head of actually putting your idea into a tangible form.
This method is simple, costs nothing more than you taking the time to write down your invention ideas and hold onto them, and then taking the time to organize them in an ebook format. Making money for your time and ideas is very awesome. And even though you're surely not going to get as much for those ideas as you would if you went down the long road to putting your invention together with your own hands or patenting the idea and selling it to another, at very least, with this method, you don't have to spend years doing such things, and you can guarantee that someone will find your idea. That someone will have the time, money and resources to complete the project, which you and everyone else will be able to benefit from down the road. And while you might not always get credit for the original invention, you can still feel proud to know that you were the first to come up with the idea or invention, especially if your book was published before the invention came onto the market.
