If you’ve been working at a job for a number of years, or even if you are just starting out, you’ve probably come to a few realizations. First, it’s not very fulfilling when you work for a giant firm and you never feel appreciated. Two, no matter how hard you work you never seem to get ahead. Your paychecks barely cover your core expenses, and there’s little to no money left at the end of the month. Three, you’ve got to take a new approach if you want to have a better life.
One of the ways to improve your quality of life is to bring more money in. It’s even better if you can do that and feel excited and fulfilled at the same time. There are a lot of ways to make money out there. Side hustles, passive income and niche sites are but a few. But if you want to make real money, and have the satisfaction of actually creating and producing a tangible product, consider getting into the invention and manufacturing game.
Work With an Experienced Partner to Create Your Product
It’s easy to be swept away in all the talk about online businesses. They can sometimes take quite a while to get going and generate revenue. If you are doing something like selling products you buy from an overseas wholesaler or manufacturer, then it’s likely anyone could buy them and sell them too. When you design and produce your own parts or product, you’ll control the market instead of the market controlling you.
If you are creating a product is made of a metal alloy such as bronze casting, you could work with company with years of manufacturing experience producing bronze castings using the sand casting process. They’ll be able to do castings that range from an ounce to 2,000 pounds and can do production runs ranging from a single piece prototype to thousands of pieces.
Build the Passion Using Crowdfunding Sites
Once you have birthed your invention idea and brought it to life with the first prototype, it’s time to tap the immense potential of crowdfunding sites. If you produce a compelling video and tell the story of your product and how it makes a big difference in life, you’ll get followers and folks who want to buy.
You can let them pre-order your great new invention on the sites, which will give you the funding you need for your production runs. When you work with your casting expert to product a top quality product, you’ll have satisfied customers raving about your new offering.
Create Viral Buzz on Social Media and in the Press
If you have a great product and have done the crowdfunding campaign right, it’s time to leverage the passion and following you’ve built and build a viral buzz on social media and in the press. The right social media campaign can drive traffic to your crowdfunding site, and when friends excitedly share with friends that’ll bring in even more pre-orders and sales.
A hot new product that gets a lot of viral buzz is likely to get media attention too. A single story on network TV or being featured in a leading online publication can skyrocket your success and take you to the stratosphere.
