Looking for a way to get the word out about your new product or invention? If you’re an independent inventor and/or small-business owner (big guys not allowed), submit your product to YakAboutIt.com.
The creators of this site wanted to give the “little guys” (i.e. the ones who do not have mass distribution and large marketing budgets) an opportunity to showcase their new products, get feedback and maybe even sell some items.
Every week, two new products will be highlighted on the home page in a friendly competition for “Most Yakable.” When the new products get highlighted, the previous Most Yakable gets a “trophy” and moves to the “Most Yakable” position on the home page. Every product includes photos, the story behind the product and the inventor and the opportunity to buy it.
The goal, obviously, is to get noticed by retail buyers so you can get your product on their shelves. YakAboutIt.com gets consumers talking and we all know word of mouth is as important as (and a lot cheaper than) a large advertising campaign.
