061 – 5 Sales Channels a Home Inventor Mom Used to Launch Her Invention

MAKO Design + Invent – February 2, 2021

With Alison Brett, Founder of Clasp Magic

Alison is the inventor and founder of Clasp Magic, a consumer product to help users with putting on bracelets one-handed. Alison came up with the invention idea, got it developed, and then hit the ground running by using 5 different product sales channels and strategies to really make sure her product succeeded. We explore what those channels were, and how to win in them. Clasp Magic is now sold all over the world. Today’s episode is about how to succeed in launching your new product, from the perspective of a home inventor, loving wife, and mother of 4.

You’ll hear Kevin and Alison talk about:

  • Being your brand – Take your product everywhere.
  • The 5 sales channels Alison used to ensure her product invention launch was a big success.
  • Best practices for successfully executing in each of those 5 sales channels.
  • Crowdfunding through platforms such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo.
