many steps, which allows for the production of many devices. Many of these products
are expensive and not mobile. Mobile meaning you can’t bring to the field with you to
or friends. I decided to make a device that was simple and inexpensive so the average
Joe could purchase and use my product efficiently.
device used in practicing baseball and came up with the tee. A good tee now a day’s cost
$50-$70 and in made of a very heavy rubber. The tee also has multiple pegs to change
the location of the tee to work on hitting pitches in different locations. As one can see an
average parents would not know the purpose of those other pegs. I decided to make a tee
that would fill everyone’s needs and that’s when I came up with the “Hand Held Tee”.
instructor. It is 8 ft. long one side with a handled grip the other side the shaft rounds out
into the shape of a baseball. The HHT will be used by instructor holding the stick in the
hitting zone allowing the hitter to strike the round end of the stick.
pick up the ball or pick up the tee if is falls over. With the HHT the users get the best of
everything. The stick only weighs 6 pounds 8oz so its portable, and everyone can use it.
I kept it as simple as possible trying to make a product that is durable, and inexpensive
for the consumer.
I plan to sell my product through baseball stores and baseball magazines
rather than right out of the factory. I feel stores will allow for workers to demonstrate
how easy it is to use and how portable it is. The baseball magazines will be used more
website will describe the product in detail and show a real demo. I will also meet with pro
of baseball have see this product and how great it is. I will sell the product for a
discounted rate to leagues if they buy them in bulk.
I feel the key to my product is promotion and I don’t mean TV
the Hand Held Tee in action. This being in a store demonstration or most likely at a field
began to become very interested and will stop at the store and check it out.
That’s how I feel I will get consumers asking about my product. Sure the baseball
magazines will act as an advertisement as well but one cannot fully grasp the greatness of
this product off of a magazine page. Another part of my promotion is my demonstrations
I will give to college and pro teams. All of my demonstrations will be given during a real
practice and will concentrate on selling my product to the players because they are the
ones who benefit from its use. Besides all of the basic form of advertising I will have my
own website which will show the product and give information about it on how to
clear demonstrations will be the key to its success in selling.
A huge part of a product sales production is its price. Before making this
product I knew I wanted a product that anyone can afford. This helps to widen the
market of people that buy my product. For example not everyone can buy a Mercedes
because they are too expensive which limits the amount of consumers. My product cost
$30, which is $5, less than the cheapest tee. I know some families can’t afford to go buy
a tee and don’t forget the net you need for the ball to be hit into. This combination of a
net and a tee with a dozen ball cost about $250. My device doesn’t require a net or
baseballs. Thus saving time in practicing and saving the consumer up to $200. An
