How to Market a New Product

Sep 03 2013

How to Market a New Product in Meadville, PAHow to market a new product” is a common search phrase on search engines. While it is a common search, it is the wrong search. It will not answer the question that is really at the heart of the matter. The real question should be, “how can I maximize my return on my idea given what I am willing to do to make my idea a commercial success”.

The truth is that there are millions of ideas and they grow in value as they approach commercial success. An idea that never gets exposed and promoted it has a very small chance of success.

Use Perspectives to Optimize Innovation

Feb 20 2013

PerceptionPerspectives Optimize Innovation when marketing a new product, yet all too frequently, I encounter inventors with the next greatest innovation who are not having the success they hoped for in marketing their new product. They know what the product costs to produce. They know what they want to sell it for. They know how they want to go to market and how they are going to promote the product. They have a perspective based on what it took to get the product developed, but they haven’t tried to look at the product from the potential customers perspective. It is sad to say, but I have seen many examples where these folks have anywhere from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of product on the shelf but still haven’t looked at their innovation from the perspective of the potential customer.
