I'm a patent lawyer and have many founder friends asking how to write strong software patents. I've put together a course with all the secrets I've learned drafting hundreds of patents into an easy-to-follow course.

February 8, 2021 Adjusting Google and FB Ad Campaigns

Google Ad Campaign

Budget right now is $36/day; Google is recommending me to go to $110/day.

3 ad groups: 1) Keywords around "how to write a patent", 2) keywords around "costs in filing a patent", and 3) keywords around "patent writing courses" (just created)

Ad group 2)'s cost per conversion is ~$10, Ad group 1)'s cost per conversion is ~$25 (Conversion is defined as reaching the checkout stage)

Campaign has been running for 2 weeks

Facebook Ad Campaign

Budget is $7/day

4 ad groups: 1) Lookalike on course site visitors, 2) Lookalike on free course subscribers, 3) People who've watched 75% of my ad video, 4) People who've visited the site in the last 30 days, 5) LAL on actual course purchases

Ad group 2) performs the best

Campaign has been running for 2 weeks

Around 10% of visitors reach the checkout page, around 1% convert. ~70% of sales have come from Google and 30% have come through FB.

ROI is currently ~$0.90 for every $1 spent

January 21, 2021 First 2 paying customers!

In January, I started giving free IP advice in various forums like Reddit, Indiehackers, and some other communities. I also started marketing with Google Ads (~$36/day) and FB Ads (~$7/day).

The first customers came from Google Ads. I am still not profitable because it cost ~$500 in ads money and generated ~$400 in revenue, but I'm going to spend time talking to the customers to learn why they paid for my course.

November 13, 2020 Patent Writing Course is ready

After many hours of work, I've finally finished the course. I've included over 60 videos that explain the ins and outs of writing a software patent with no experience.

October 13, 2020 Hello World!

I completed a free mini-course on patent strategy (https://from-zero-to-patent.teachable.com/) designed to help any founder understand how to use patents to increase the value of their company.

I also created initial material that teaches folks how to write strong software patents. This is built from my many years of experience writing hundreds of patents.
