Harvey lives in my hometown. I contacted his office and he replied directly to me that in order to get the ball rolling - even for a meeting since I lived literally a few miles away - I would have to submit to his company. I found his rsponse direct not rude in the least.
I elected not to but based in great deal because of the information I read on his site. Have you taken the time to read the information on Harvey`s site? Ths info alone is worth more than the <$200 for submission to his company. And using his blueprint as my guide, I have contacted companies about my product.
Who knows, I might use Harvey`s services in the future. But he even tells you on his site that the inventions he deals with are decidedly low-tech. And if he takes on your project, the deal seems fair, given that all you would have to do is sit on your butt and have his company do all the work. Plus, I have not seen his name pop up on the list of bad invention marketing-related sites.
We`re talking <$200. Why should he provide you with references? If you don`t want to pay and submit, at least check out what he does offer for free on his site - comprehensive information. That advice alone is worth more than the cost of making a submission to his company. I don`t understand the basis of the criticism.
