Chris ** did a very good job answering all of my questions. He was very helpful in telling things to me that I didn't understand. Definitely knows how to see what I'm telling him in detail of the project in which we are working on together.
I've been working with Johnny ** my project manager at World Patent Marketing since Nov. 2015 - he has stayed in contact with me regarding their progress for my idea (even on Saturdays and late evenings). He has proved to me to be as motivated about my idea as I am. After months of corresponding on the phone with Johnny ** World Patent Marketing gave me the opportunity to meet face to face with Johnny ** and Jerry ** in the Miami office late January 2016 - and that meeting with these two gentlemen clearly demonstrated to me their dedication to the project. WPM has shown me they are on top of their game in the whole marketing/patent process and they have earned my utmost respect.
The experience so far with the company and my rep have been very easy going. I'm new to this whole experience with moving forward. I look forward to learning more about the company and how the program works. The future of my idea is not yet known but the excitement I feel from everyone so far has given me hope to move forward. Looking forward to working with my rep in the future and everyone else involved.
I work with Jim ** and he is a great project manager. He offers me suggestions and really helps me stay excited with my project. I enjoy his warm and comforting personality. Jim keeps me informed on the process and follows up promptly. I enjoy expressing my idea with someone who gets excited as I do, and compliments my success. Thank you Jim **.
Marie ** was helpful and kind to me. She not only explained everything to me in detail, but she also listened to me and answered all my questions to the best of her ability. We had a good talk on the phone matter of we spoke so much in such a short time. We felt like we knew each other. I was very comfortable with her. She encouraged me at the time when I was really going through a tough season in my life. I'm thankful and grateful for Ms. Marie **. I'm so glad she made that call to me on 10/5/16. I thank you Ms. Marie **.

I have been thinking about the idea for 10+ years, and have always been afraid to take the first step. When I finally decided to get started, I was put together with Mr. James **. Not only did he ease all my fears, answer all my questions, including questions I hadn't thought of yet, he was able to allow me to trust in him, and feel safe and secure in his care. If only wish there were a higher rating, because he does not deserve a 5 star, he deserves a 10 star.
Lee has been very informative and helpful to me in getting my idea off the ground and running. Thank you Lee and WPM. I have always been a great procrastinator, but when I was contacted by Lee through WPM regarding an idea I had, it truly did get me moving because not only did I believe in my idea but so did Lee and the team he works with.

The comments made about World Patent Marketing were not acceptable and the company contacted me and got everything resolved. Scott ** is an extremely respectable man and a man of his word. I would completely recommend this company to everyone.

Absolutely do not put your money into this company. They will give you extremely vague responses in words and will avoid putting anything into writing. This company will give you a sense of false hope in your product or idea and build it up until you get to a point where you will put your money down for it. They will come back to you with a 70 page report all that mean absolutely nothing and will point to a page that just says how much money your idea will make you looking for more money. In no way does this company look out for the good of the consumer and in many senses I would call them an extremely elaborate scam.

When I first contacted WPM they seemed like a great company. Jimmy ** told me everything that I wanted to hear. Told me that after I received their patent analysis I could take it to a bank and get a loan for the patent. "In fact he told me a little story about when he had done the same thing to get his own invention patented." I paid the $995.00 and waited the 4+ weeks for their patent analysis. When I did get it it had nothing to do with the main part of my invention. In fact the only mention of it at all was the name of it on the first page. I couldn't believe it! This Huge company. Seems to have it all together! Supposed to be a one stop shop! Put together a Patent Analysis on my invention idea without ever mentioning the main purpose of the invention.
And now they want $10,000 to go to the next step. Wait it gets better! They also said that this was a patent search. Yet they are not Patent Attorneys either... And won't even refer you to their patent attorneys until you pay $10,000 dollars for their next ** service... World Patent Marketing turned out to be a complete waste of time & money. And I'll be lucky if they don't steal my idea.
I've had a very good experience with World Patent Marketing, with Neil ** and the rest of the engineers. The information sharing is great and reliable and one on one and very Professionally handled. I thank you all for the experience and the acceptance of my product. Thank you all.
I have been coming up with inventions for quite some time now and I was very unsure of what to do with them. I researched a couple of companies and I was not satisfied with the reviews. When I came across WPM I was a little skeptical because it seemed too good to be true. I have been in contact With Sherry ** for the past 2 weeks and she is such a wonderful lady. I appreciate the fact that she takes the time to explain the information to me in details and if I seem unsure she do not hesitate to repeat the information. That shows me that the company cares about their clients. WPM is the start of a new beginning for me and I know that only wonderful things are in store for me and WPM for the future. Don't hesitate to contact this company with your ideas. You will be in great hands.

Outlaw Patent Invention Jessie James. World Patent Marketing is a waste of time for pumping me up with all of these Fake Promises in May 2016 and WPM knew we are trying to win the Nobel Peace Prize for our Peace Invention. When I got the substandard work back in September 2, 2016 and the work was completed in August 15, 2016 I was mad as hell. Then he tried to tell me a weak assssssss lie out of it and that made matters worse than what they are. Now I do not believe anything he has to say until I see Proof that the Sun is really shining...
After reviewing the substandard work that did not even have the correct Invention Name or Inventor's Name on the Documents was highly disrespectful to us paying almost $2,000 for this cookie cutter garbage they sent us. Two different projects with the same content cookie cutter work. They just changed the name and sent me the same work as if we could not read it. Slick talking salesman and a nickel slick Outlaw Jessie James.
The owner is in denial that his front office hates working for ** Men with money and they are out of control. I e-mailed him a letter asking for help and he was too Weak of a real man to even respond to a $2,000 paying customer. WPM knew the Nobel Peace Prize Nomination started September 01, 2016 because I told them up front what my intentions were and WPM promise me they would be ready.
I believed them... At 62 years of being ** and I have seen more than my fair share of Hating on a Brother... That Hurt me to my core that they Played Me like a all day sucker. Then Outlaw Jessie James tells me --- WPM Does Not Do Custom Work? Whattttt??? You could have told me that back in May 2016 before this Vietnam Veteran gave you my hard earned and saved pension money. Only Because I Believe IN WPM!!! Not Anymore. Thanks For Opening My Eyes!!!
She has been the best rep. As always courteous. And knowledgeable. And that is coming from a former US airlines rep. With 22 years experience. She has been doing a great job. Keep her.
My program manager has done an awesome job in helping me initiate my idea. He's been upfront and honest, answering my questions about cost and project direction. I recommend this company when it comes to big ideas.
Orly **, has done a great job so far. He has done what he said he was going to do. Orly has kept in touch with me and informed me with the processes we are undergoing and has answered all my questions.
I have just gotten started and my service with Ellen ** has been excellent. She is very kind and easy to talk to and has kept me informed of the process so far. I am waiting on the next step at this time. Looking forward to working.
Jake was very personable and professional. He took time to explain how everything works and what to do. He was patient and kind. He was excited about my invention which made me feel even more excited about my invention. Nice guy.
So far I have been happy with WPM. For other inventors reading this that are just getting started, just be aware that the process is not a quick one which often causes doubt. I started process around Feb 2016 and just got my Patent in late June. Patent is also fairly costly but WPM does work with you on payments. I had Rick as my Project Manager and he was great to work with. We did have some problems with drawings etc which was and can be frustrating. I had many doubts along the process but all the way through to my Patent being filed by Mack WPM has done what they said they would do. It worked out that I was in Daytona Beach on vacation when I had to make the major $$$ decision to go ahead with patent or not so I took a day and drove down to Miami to meet with Rick at WPM.
It made me feel much better to put a name with a face. I just had my press release so have not got a licensing deal as of yet but I am hoping for one in next few months. If and when I get a licensing deal I will post and update if I'm allowed. Good Luck everyone!!!
Sage is my my Project Manager and until now I can say that he is a real professional at what he is doing! Good job Sage, thank you!

I had a phone conversation with Scott **. We figured out our misunderstandings. He explained that due to the nature of his business, not many people succeed and we could only do business together if I had a firm belief in my product.
I am satisfied with the fact that Scott took the time to resolve the issue via personal phone call.

Of course, there were warning signs. Too many: unprofessional staff who knew nothing about patent process, just very concerned about making the sale; the silly report they provided that contained public information that could be easily found on the internet; pressure time and again for money. Now, I just had an e-mail communication with the company CEO Scott Cooper. I have never experienced a more unprofessional, bully-like response he gave me. He called me names. He acted the way never to be expected from a professional. By doing that, he just made me more convinced that World Patent Marketing is no more than a scam. Today I was informed that there is a class action suit going on against it. Please hold on to your money. Do not fall into the trap I've foolishly fallen into.
Updated 8/15/2016 - After publishing my review, I received a legal threat from World Patent Marketing. Throughout the years, I have published numerous reviews about businesses I'd had an encounter with on various social media. WPM is the only business that has reacted in such bully and defensive way. I have expressed my honest opinion and as far as know we still live in a country with freedom of speech. Their reaction is only making me more convinced about my findings. The company that is confident about it being right would never give out such defensive response. They would actually try to listen to their client's concern and to resolve the matter in a professional way.
Dean was very helpful. I am an engineer. I have no knowledge of legal processes of any of this type of stuff. I felt as if my hand was help through the entire process the whole time and I am very thankful to Dean for always being there for me.
Paulo did a very outstanding job on explaining the steps of a patent and answering all questions and was very professional. l look forward to working the Paulo and the World Patent Marketing staff. Would highly recommend Paulo and World Patent Marketing.
She was very on top of everything which I love about Sherry.
This company answers questions in a professional manner. Their response time is great. Although I have just started working with them, I feel very comfortable, which is extremely important. Anthony does a great job.
It's way early in the process, but thus far, I've been very impressed with WPM and my rep, Jameson. He's on the ball and seems to be excited about my invention.
Dean ** was and has been very insightful in our quest to forego on my invention in the pet industry. Upon starting this venture I was very nervous at the idea and try not to succumb to defeat but in the dimmest moments when I felt failure was near, Dean stepped in and reassured me that everything was going to be okay. He has one of the mildest tones when talking to someone that says that all is well and that is a feeling that every client should encounter when trying anything new and I am glad, very pleased, and overwhelmed with joy that Dean ** was my agent throughout this process.
Sage went above and beyond what I would have expected. He answered every single question that I had asked and I asked a whole lot of them! I had even talked to him after hours and he had no problems helping me out. He's a hard worker.
I am very pleased so far.

My experience with World Patent Marketing was not a positive one. They will reel you in telling you your idea has potential, then do a sales tactic called a "take away" (by saying the idea needs to go through approval board). After 3 days you will get a call back saying that your idea has been approved and they will be investing in your idea! You only need to pay $1,595 for "about $35,000" in market research. This is when my red flags went up! Once you actually read the contract they do perform services but are investing nothing.
This company is a sales scheme and after my account manager Paulo called me at 9 pm for the third time I answered and said "Paulo I'm ready to invest if you can tell me specifically what my idea is..." After hearing him stumble through ideas that had nothing to do with my idea I simply hung up. This company preys on the American Dream and spends lots of money online to hide their image.
Thank you for the Professional help Jessica ** gave me on my idea. I am sure I am in good hands with all the help you have given me so far. I look forward to talking with you again.
