MIAMI, FLORIDA -- I want to do a shout out to all who are considering bringing their ideas to WPM. Do it. If you have an idea that is unique, if you want someone who you can trust your idea to and if you want to work with professionals who will do everything they can to professionally bring your idea to market, go to WPM.
I began my journey with WPM in the Fall of 2014. I had an idea that wouldn't let me sleep at night. I had to tell someone and see how to make it become a reality. It was so simple but so weird. It had to work! I researched different companies but none resonated with me until I found WPM. They not only are a one stop shop for inventors, they also do a tremendous amount of good in the world for children and veterans and many others. That was really important to me! I also was pretty impressed by their amazing Advisory Board.
My idea was a quirky little take on Big Foot I called Squatch on a Box. It was clear that my idea was odd, so odd that it was a bit out of place - different - goofy - but something about it's quirkiness got the attention of CEO Scott Cooper... It was July 2015 when I received a call from Scott. I was so excited to be able to finally speak with him and tell him my story. He was incredible to talk to, so full of energy and questions, lots of them. How did I come up with this, where did this come from, who was my competition, what was up with the box???
In a second conversation that followed two weeks later he offered me a licensing agreement to manufacture and market my idea. He loved the idea of these Squatch characters, and heard from me that I was open to other ways of doing this, not overly obsessed with my idea to the point of being closed to other suggestions. He wanted to drop the box. So... I said, 'Let's drop the box!' He is, after all, the one who knows what people want, what works, what doesn't, what's marketable, what makes fiscal sense...
He is the expert in this field, not me, so you bet I listened to him! (I still do). And that was the beginning of what I will say has been the most fun I have ever had in my life. Squatch on a Box has been transformed into our new product Squatch World (check out SquatchWorld.com). Same concept, unique Squatches with different personalities, all now packaged within an entirely different product. The website is still being completed but can be viewed if you would like to check out what we've been up to.
Scott and I are in communication almost daily now and it's been an amazing process of such incredible creativity and wow, amazing artistry and graphics for our plush line. The incredible talent they have at WPM is mind boggling. Every day is like a birthday for me, something new is created for me to see. It is understandable why SquatchWorld has taken a bit more time than most products brought to WPM. We spent countless hours with prototype after prototype until we finally got one we both loved.
Scott had the vision for a friendly approachable squatch for children and adults alike and was diligent to make it happen just the way he envisioned it. He has kept me involved very closely with the project since the very beginning. He is an amazing partner and strong perfectionist. I have tremendous respect for him. He is brutally honest, compassionate about bringing great products to market in the most dynamic way possible for his inventors, and has amazing vision, drive, the man never sleeps! I am honored to be a part of this amazing company.
My recommendation is this, when you bring your idea to WPM, keep an open mind and respect the experts there. Be open to the possibilities your concept might be able to morph into. Remember who the experts are and want nothing less than the best. Dreams can come true… And boy can they!
WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA -- I was interested in finding out about doing something with one of my projects. I was contacted by Christopher **. He showed me a great deal of respect by taking me through the process as many times as needed until I fully understood the process. Once I fully understood each phase then we moved on to the next step until I was comfortable with what he had to offer. I closed the deal with Mr. ** feeling confident that the product I'm offering to your company is off to a strong start. Mr. ** is a true professional in his field and if I can give him a higher rating than 5 stars I would. Thanks for everything Christopher.
FLORIDA -- My boyfriend and I decided to look into patent companies and see what they think of our invention. We spoke with 4 or 5 different ones and made a decision to go with World Patent Marketing. I will be honest with you - I was a little worried at first. Not really knowing what we were getting into and especially not having the computer skills needed to correspond with such educated folks on a daily basis. If ever I was concerned and couldn't get in touch with which ever team I was trying to reach, I could always rely on Sergio **. He would make sure someone called me back and took care of my concerns.
I really should have been more patient because these folks are so very busy and I must have come across as I was their only client. They treated me like I was. It is one of the best decisions he and I ever made. A world of thanks goes out to the entire World Patent Marketing Team. We wouldn't trust any other company!
MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA -- The project manager I spoke with called me and gave me a run down of the services the company will be providing me. He was very polite, ethical and gave me all the options available to me. He answered all questions professionally and demonstrated excellent customer service skills whilst communication with me.
I found the company online and thought I'd submit my idea for review. I spoke to Veronica and she was very upbeat and enthusiastic. We talked about my idea and she was the person to present it. She called me back and said they liked my idea. She's very easy to talk to and I think she's a great person to have helping me out.
ABILENE, TEXAS -- Knight Vizion Drom Alarm System to help for security around the home to help keep safe and monitor who comes around and Parker has been a great help in keeping in touch and explaining how this patent works. I will give him a five-star rating.
MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE -- Well, World Patent Marketing contacted me and I was a skeptic at first, but after wpm agents kept calling and it was always someone different and courteous, but I just put them off for days. Yet... a different agent would call until I listened and wanted to know what type of monies was involved and I was assured that money was not a priority and rick ** finally called and asked me to describe my invention and its function and he said that he would have to discuss my invention with others and that he would get in touch with me inside a couple of days.
Mr. ** got in touch with me within one week and a half and explained that if he had called in two days that could mean that wpm would pass on representing me: but Mr. ** said that World Patent Marketing feels that my invention is an idea that they would like to work with and Mr. Neil ** called and mention that he was/is working with Mr. **. I like that these two men stay in touch with me and give me updates regarding different phases that my invention is going through and they have me pumped now.
FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA -- I am so thankful for the entire team who have been involved in helping me to market and develop my invention! It is still early and there is a lot to learn. There hasn't been one step along the way where I haven't been supported and guided by World Patent Marketing's professional, incredibly friendly and inspiring staff. I'm so thankful for Mr. Paulo **, Ms. Siana **, and Mr. Yves **! I can't wait, and I look so forward to meeting Mr. Scott J. Cooper CEO & Creative Director of World Patent Marketing!
