Before each meeting there is a free forum with a patent attorney who answers questions and gives general advice on intellectual property protection including licensing, patents, trademarks and registered designs so you can learn more about the patenting process and more about the attorneys who support our association.
You will receive an Ebook Practical Guide To Inventing by Bill Allardyce which we call Inventor Boot Camp because it covers how to manufacture your product the right way, the common pitfalls of inventing, successful marketing strategies, how to assess your invention before outlaying a fortune, patenting and hot tips to achieve success.
You will also receive a link to all of the last 12 months meetings on Youtube and a special Youtube video of How To Market Your Invention, by Keith Draper who delivered this address to us in 1997 and it is just as relevant today in explaining to us what we should do when we meet with a potential purchaser, the contracts, licencing, heads of agreement and many other tips.
Your membership entitles you to receive a link each month to our YouTube video of the previous meeting and to the online newsletter, to utilize the feasibility committee to help you evaluate your product and mentor you along the way, to enter our Inventor of the Year competition, and to receive updates during the month by email if any new competition or important information becomes available.
We also offer inventors who are members of our inventors association a webpage at this site which we have recently begun as a permanent showcase with relevant keywords for search engine optimization. This gives every member a chance to have a website without having to develop their own so they can market and test their innovation before committing significant capital to it.
Our association is occasionally involved in exhibitions and media presentations in Australia and overseas to promote inventions and innovations to business and the public.
We publish a monthly newsletter “InVent”. They include information on each monthly meeting, our guest speakers and they can contain advice on trade shows, expos, activities of interest to innovative people and how to turn your design into a profitable idea.
We have our own YouTube channel “Inventorvic” where you can place your invention video with links back to this website or to your own website to increase your internet presence and promote your product or idea. This is available to all members
