For Immediate Release: Minneapolis, MN – Three more groups that represent inventors in the USA have stepped forward to help sponsor the 2012 Made in America – Hot Product Contest that is being lead by the National Mail Order Association, NMOA, bringing the total to six inventors groups supporting the contest set to launch in June 2012.
In an effort to bring more exposure and build sales of unique and interesting products invented and Made in American, the three new groups are the Inventors Congress of Minnesota, the Inventors Association of Arizona, and the Inventors Association of Saint Louis. This makes a total of six major inventor groups that have joined with the NMOA to help broadcast the word of this event to inventors across their respective states.
“Inventors need help getting the word out about their products,” says John Schulte, President of the NMOA. “The effort it takes to get a product into production and ready to sell is a massive undertaking, but the cost to market a new product on a national scale makes the invention process seem like a walk in the park. Promotional costs can be staggering, and are way beyond the average inventor’s financial capability. This affects not only the inventor but also you and me as consumers; we get deprived of ever learning of their existence. Thus, we never have a chance to make a purchase, which then affects the economy as a whole.” Schulte notes.
“We need to create a channel of exposure for unique and exciting new products that are invented and made right here in the USA. That’s what this contest is all about.”
“In the grand scheme of things, if we can get the 250 million adults in America to simply redirect just $100 of their normal yearly expenditures towards Made in America products, we can add an extra Twenty-five Billion ($25,000,000,000) to the US economy, and those extra sales mean more jobs to make more products, and that’s something worthwhile to do.” continues Schulte.
“There are thousands of unique and interesting products being invented and made all over America, fantastic products most Americans have never seen, or will see, unless we do something about it. This contest is meant to bring these products into the spotlight for all to see, and vote for.* concludes Schulte.
