This eBook is authored by inventor - Jim Lowrance, who has successfully marketed and licensed six products in the outdoors sports industry, placing them with some of the world's largest retail outlets, including Wal-Mart stores, Bass Pro Shops and Cabela's. He also gained national telemarketing exposure for his products and landed a national promotion for his patented fishing rod accessory called "The Rod Floater", with a major oil company - Kerr-McGee, manufacturer of Mystik outboard motor oil (1992). He currently still receives royalty payments for this invention (since 1995) and previously licensed five others, eventually selling them for outright sums to manufacturers who still market them.
Written in easy-to-follow language, this resource offers opportunity for a well-rounded, general education that can help to instill a better level of confidence and knowledge to inventors of new products with potential for success in the marketplace. No one can promise positive outcomes to inventors but being well-armed with the right information can significantly increase the chances of success.
