I am a huge Billy Mays fan and I have purchased almost everything that man has sold on TV!
*The big city slider station (my kids favorite!)
*Mighty Mend It
to name a few...
The Discovery Channel has this really cool show called "Pitchmen" that stars Billy Mays and I'm hooked! On the TLC website there is a page called "Make millions the Billy Mays way".
Listed is a check list to see if your invention is a good one.
Here is the list...
Does It Have Perceived High Value?
Is It Highly Demonstrable?
Is It Unique or New?
Does It Have a Patent?
Does It Solve A Common Problem?
Does It Have Room for a 5x Markup?
Does It Have Mass Market Appeal?
I was soooo excited to read this list because I could answer everything "yes" about Product X except the Patent. That I do not have yet but come Monday, I'll be looking into it!
