How Thomas Wittenberg can help you:

To all inventors and product developers:

I am proposing a course titled "Getting your invention or product to market". Through my 25 years of sales and marketing in the consumer products industry I have learned all of the steps involved in getting a product placed at retail locations, mail order catalogs and home shopping channels. Here are some bullet points that will be discussed in the course.
Identifying the trade channel you should be pitching your product.
The basic selling tools needed to make a formal presentation for success.
Keys to establishing a sales team with no upfront cost.
How to build a brand to sell for millions as an exit strategy.
Profit margin versus distribution.

I also offer one on one consulting as each inventor has special unique needs that require special attention.

I have built brands for some very reputable companies during my career including the WD-40 Company and Purina Pet Food. I was also the National Director of Sales for the Mrs Meyers cleaning brand which was sold to SC Johnson in 2008 for over 70 million dollars. I have built several small brands into international brands during my career. I love to help the inventor and the small start up company, with a great product, get distribution into the retail world. I have industry contacts at the retail, distribution and broker level that can help any company be successful. I also have industry knowledge regarding pricing, margins, packaging, hidden costs and other intangibles needed for a successful product launch. I can help the inventor just starting out or small to medium size consumer goods companies with any sales and marketing needs.
