Question about stage 4

melsidea's Avatar

I have noticed a pattern in my submissions for the same product and it always stops or fails at stage four! The research part always gets me.  When I search for other products like mine, I don't find hardly anything? What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance!

Hi Melinda!

To echo the thoughts of Frank and Roger, Stage 4 is the most difficult stage to pass, the majority of ideas that are declined in our evaluation process stop at Stage 4. 

Research is SO important before submitting an idea. In Stage 4, ideas are evaluated for mass marketability and competitors. 

Here are some EN Blog Posts that may be of help:

Hope this information helps and we look forward to reviewing your next idea soon!
