Thanks for your response!! I cannot find a product like mine in any pet stores. I have found 1 "homemade" product being sold on line that is similar. I know I have a winner here but it is all in how I market it. I guess I`ve got to bite the bullet and file for a provisional for some protection so I can get out there to see if there is any real interest. Can you comment more on "finding a niche?" I think women will purchase my pet product more that men. I have read that women purchase something like 78% of all pet products.
Hello!! I have an idea for pet related product. I`m having a professional prototype made. Friends and family like the product and so far it`s been alot of fun designing, dreaming of product name, company name, etc. Have not filed for a provisional patent. The $5,000 legal fee is not justified yet as I feel more market research is needed. Other than talking to Petsmart, Petco etc. how else do I research the market? What do I need to be doing while the prototype is being made. HELP! I really need mentoring. All opinions welcomed! 1busymomma
