The Open Search - held twice a year in June and December - gives Insiders the opportunity to submit ideas from any product category.
It works just like our sponsor-specific Live Product Searches, except we’ll work with any consumer goods retailer or manufacturer in any mass-appeal category.Learn more about becoming an Insider
Live Product Search
Edison Nation runs idea searches to match your inventions with the needs of the world’s largest brands.

Good Housekeeping is dedicated to finding simple and smart solutions for life’s everyday challenges. The popular magazine, website and Research Institute puts innovative new products to the test each day.
Good Housekeeping and Edison Nation have now teamed up to find the best, undiscovered new consumer products to bring to market.
Brainstorm, invent and get your mind working on these core consumer areas:
Baby and childcare
Fitness, sports and outdoor recreation
Storage and organization
Home and bath
Lawn, garden and tools
Cooking, kitchenware and food prep gadgets, products and accessories
When developing your submission, there are some key questions to consider:
Does your product solve a common problem?
Can the product be explained or demonstrated in a visually interesting manner?
Does your product have mass-market appeal?
Will the consumer find your product’s promise believable?
Does the product have the potential to provide ongoing sales (refills, supplies, etc.)?
Edison Nation’s team of product review experts will review and research each idea submitted to this challenge.
If your idea is selected, we’ll split royalties with you, 50/50.
We ask for well-communicated ideas. This includes filling out our easy-to-use submission form to the best of your ability. Upload images, sketches and any other media that support your idea. Tell us your story. We even encourage you to create a video demonstrating your innovation. Don’t worry. We aren’t expecting you to break out your inner Spielberg. Please keep videos to less than 2 minutes.
As always, your submission should be unique and protectable (patent protection is helpful but not a requirement).
