    You could use Prezi to create a presentation in which you could then present it to investors for more funds.

    in this situation i would make a piktochart because it is accessible from the web,its basic to use and has a good range of graphics to decorate the poster and make it stand out for free,or if you would like to upgrade it isnt highly priced so it wouldnt effect the tight budget.

    you could use piktochart as it is a more appealing way to advertise products in a more productive way so then more people will be able to easily understand what you are advertising.

    You would create an advertising campaign which would promote the product in the media e.g TV and radio. Also you would design and create a website which will give users an insight into the product. The tools you would use could be free online services which will allow you to set up a basic website and also create posters and leaflets. an example of free services which provide this are: Piktochart, Glogster and Prezzi.

    Make a demonstration video, and put it on youtube, then put the video on social network sites, then show the invention to a science magazine site like new scientist for example. Or you could find a patent office and publish your idea and then take it to a company like microsoft.

    If my ict skills were basic, i would make an advertisement using piktochart. Piktochart is a good tool to use because you can include various graphs to show why the product is a good invewntion. it is also free to use and to upgrade it it doesnt cost too much,upgrading also gives your more templates and graphics to use.The website offers lots of graphics and images anyway to mke the poster stand out and it is available for people to access it on the internet or you can print it out.

    Use mircosoft software to ceate basic flyers and posters for promotional purposes what can then be posted around. You can also post somehat of an advertisment to promote your product on social networking websites. Webs.com can be used also since its a free online web hosting website this will be good as a home page to promote your invention.

    Possibly create a flyer using Microsoft Publisher, and then post it on social netwroking sites so that people can see it. You could also use a free online web hosting site such as http://www.webs.com/ for example. The link to the website that you created could then be emailed or posted on social networking sites.

    If my ICT skills were only basic, I’d promote the sales of my product through programs such as Microsoft PowerPoint or Prezi if I was to present my product to potential customers; Prezi would catch their eyes and keep them interested whilst learning about/viewing my product as the website offers different layouts and moves around when you interact with it. PowerPoint doesn’t cost much, and Prezi could be free to use if I wanted that option. I would also produce flyer like material on Glogster and Piktochart to develop advertisements, along with promoting for free on websites. For example, I could sign up to Facebook and Twitter to educate people on my product, thus promoting sales.

  11. bradley

    You could easily sign up to websites such as Facebook or Youtube, and advertise your product on there. Promotion will be at a low cost and will be very effective as it is on show to thousands/millions of people everyday. On Facebook your advert will only show to the people that have the interests in technology or new products.

    There are many pieces of software in which you could use your ICT skills to help promote the sales of the product. One of them could be Pictochat, you could also use a Microsoft software for example Microsoft Word, Publisher or PowerPoint you could use these to advertise the product by creating Posters or maybe creating a PowerPoint presentation and could create a conference to show people it.

    There are a number of different softwares I could use to promote my product even if my ICT skills are basic for exmple I could use:

    A range of Microsoft Software
    Microsoft Software includes Word and PowerPoint. All of these produce a basic product but you can use them to create your advertisement forexample pn Word you can create a basic flyer or poster which will help to promote the business, Powerpoint can help you to create a simple Advert.

    Online Software
    Online software includes Prezi and Piktochart which can create better looking products then the Microsofts software but they are more advanced and harder to use then the Microsoft software

    Use social networking sites such as Facebook or Twitter. They are free and relatively easy to advertise to a large amount of people by creating a page where you can post news, pictures and videos. The only problem is that if the page posts too many things then some people may see the adverts as spam and could just ignore them.

    Another way of advertising for free is using Youtube where you can post videos. This allows you to explain the product in detail and you can show demonstrations of how it can be used.

    You can also create a website for the product which allows you to explain the product in extreme detail if you wish, post videos and pictures and advertise the product. You can also sell the product directly from the website. However this may be difficult for someone with limited ICT skills and it may not be cheap.

    I would first of all use free social networking sites such as Facebook or Twitter, and advertise my product by posting up photos of my product and videos of how my product works. Video websites such as Youtube or Vimeo could help promote the product as well if you were to post a video of your product in action on there. If the product were to be that impressive the video would probably go viral.
    You may also be able to create a website cheaply designed solely for your product.

    use basic socail media sites like twitter and facebook. this could be good becasue its a free advertising tool (as long as you have the internet). I would go for this option becasue it doesnt have complicated i.c.t skills involved.

    I would use social network websites such as twitter and facebook, and I would post some pictures and a link to my official internet website which will promote the product. The job that social newtork website has to do is to advertise my product and if people are interested, they can go on the official website and see the content of it – I will put videos and pictures which will promote advantages of my product.

    you could use google sites to create a website that is hosted for free to help advertise your product and also create a prezi to try and attract investors to help your product sell. you could then spend the rest of the money on advertising on commonly visited websites such as google

  19. October 9, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    i would first use publisher to create a poster, then would spam email as many investors as possible maybe using a bit of eCommerce to satisfy my customers. i would also make a site using coffee cup considering its the best for use and is free for the time it would be made, and finnally a slide show, showcasing all of the sides and reasons for purchase of the product

    Get it on Facebook!! Make a page promoting your product. This will help the product go through friends accounts onto other people you may not know, then maybe to a billionaire who will have the money to put the great idea into process and then you will become a millionaire. Also you may be able to make a website on other Web Hosting Services like google sites but this will have a set html link that you are unable to change.

    I would use tools including Microsoft Powerpoint and Microsoft Word because these are simple But can get a Point across which means it will be a Good Advertising Tool.

    You could use Social Media to promote your product as social media is used by the majority of the world so you would be able to reach out to lots of people, also social media is free so it wont affect your budget. You could also create a free website through google sites, weebly, webs etc. to promote your product throughout the web.

    If my funds were small then I would go on social networking sites to advertise then I would fill in an application form for dragons den so my brilliant idea would get noticed on TV. If I wasnt lucky to get onto dragons den then I would creat a website to promote my idea. These ideas are free so this still leaves me with some money.

    I would create a prezi, to present to potential investors to become up with more capital to invest into the business which would cover the costs to set up a website to promote this product. I would also create a facebook and twitter page as alot of people use these social networking sites. This would advertise the product well and would give you an rough guideline of what your target audience is and also would give people an understanding of the product, and these pages dont cost a thing to set up!

    Things like current social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter are easily accessible and very easy to create accounts, and since millions of people use these sites every day its easy to promote a idea or product.
    Another method is to use something like Glogster anmd Prezi which are relatively easy to use if you have limited ICT skills.

    Use a spreadsheet to present sales information and use a powerpoint to help advertising.

    Firstly you would need to copyright this product so no on can legally use you idea, to promote your idea I would suggest using social networking sites such as twitter, facebook or myspace where millions can see it at a click of a mouse. #simples

    I would start off by creating a presentation that that I could show to potential investers, if these went well and they wanted to invest and help to produce my product; I would ask for more funds in order to produce a top quality product

    Things like social networking sights (facebook and twitter) that are very common/popular to more than one age group and appeal to various audiences. This would be a good method to promote the product because it is free and lots of people will be able to see it and pass it on along their friends also most of the popular social network sites are free to use and don’t require many ICT skills to use. Also things like interent or offline presentation software could be used like prezi or microsoft powerpoint to create a simple advert or information presentation. They would be very good to use because they are very cheap and don’t require many skills and they are useful and related to the product that it is promoting. Also a small simple linear structured website could be created showing the products and information about them because it is cheap and easy to create and it will look more proffesional.

    you could use a social networking site like facebook to create a group to advertise that product, this is cheap and it could work well. you could also glogster and create a poster showcasing your product, this is free and you could publicly display this. Finally you could use an email to send an attatchment of your product presented to important people like venture capitalists who could invest in your product, this would solve your advertising problem and finnancial problem.

    I would first use the main social networking sites such as twitter and facebook, this is perfect because its a free advertising tool on which I the create a page.This will help the product go through friends accounts onto other people you may not know. Thousands of people use these websites so your page could be seen by hundreds of these people.

    you could use blogger or wordpress to create a blog. you can use prezi to create a presentation, this is good to use as it is more complex and makes a presentattion look more interesting. you could even use social networking sites such as facebook, or twitter as they are easily accesable and most people have twitter or facebook accounts. Glogster can also be used as it is easy to use, its free depending on the package and can be used with even basic ICT skills.
