An Insider Membership is our premium level of membership. Insiders receive feedback on all of their ideas submitted once they are Insiders and gain access to online features that aren't available to the rest. In addition, Insiders receive discounts on each idea they submit, can opt-in ideas for free and much more.

Edison Nation members who upgrade to Insider membership have access to these features (please note, these features are not available retroactively for ideas submitted as a free member):

Save money. Submit ideas for just $20 each and opt them into current or future searches for free.

Feedback at all stages. We'll offer feedback on your idea if it's not selected to move forward at any stage in the review.

Access to the Insider Licensing Program. We'll work to license your patented or patent-pending ideas.

Insider points. Earn reward points for each stage your idea passes, and use these points for free submissions, and more.

Review priority. Your ideas are reviewed ahead of the rest.

Potential to Earn. Insider members have the opportunity to earn success fees for passing the Survey, Web Test and TV Test stages in the ASOTV search!

Plus, these other cool perks: Access to Room 5, a special announcement page only viewable by Insiders. And a FREE subscription to Inventors Digest!
