Edison Nation, Inc. Announces New Initiatives to Escalate Market Presence; Revamps Corporate Website and Relaunches the Emmy Award-Winning TV Show ''Everyday Edisons''
PHILLIPSBURG, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / March 29, 2019 / Edison Nation, Inc. (NASDAQ: EDNT), a full-service product development firm, has announced new initiatives to escalate market presence to a wider audience of aspiring inventors to drive higher success potential for ideas to be commercialized. These new marketing initiatives include the relaunch of the Emmy award-winning TV show, "Everyday Edisons," and debuting a new design for the front-end of their open innovation platform website, www.EdisonNation.com.
Edison Nation's online innovation platform has virtually connected innovators with companies to bring new products to market since 2007, partnering with over 140,000 innovators from around the world which have resulted in over $250 million in retail sales to-date. The recently updated corporate website, www.EdisonNation.com, features the newly minted Edison Nation branding and offers a clean, simplified design with improved functionality for front-end users. Visitors can effortlessly obtain essential information regarding the platform's services, while easily gaining access to enriching content and resources through the blog and forums.
"Over the last couple of months, we've slowly introduced the new branding for Edison Nation, but the launch of this new website design makes it official," said Chris Ferguson, CEO of Edison Nation, Inc. "With our platform being online based, it is vital for us to keep a finger on the pulse and continue to modernize the platform to enhance the experience for our community of innovators, while at the same time, making sure the site is clear and user-friendly."
The front-end redesign of the website is only phase 1 of Edison Nation's commitment to provide a more enhanced virtual experience for users. Execution of the next phase-updating the back-end member's user-portal to match the front-end design-is set to begin immediately. Phase 3, which is the development of an interactive mobile app, is scheduled for summer 2019.
In addition to the website revamp, Edison Nation is also relaunching the Emmy award-winning TV show, "Everyday Edisons." Everyday Edisons is an inspirational reality TV series produced under license by Edison Nation, which chronicles the stories of first-time inventors as they launch their unique products into the marketplace in conjunction with the Edison Nation product development platform. The three-time Emmy and two-time Telly award-winning show originally aired for 5 seasons on PBS.

The full seasons will also be available for viewing on select streaming platforms worldwide, such as Amazon Prime Video.
Chris Ferguson, CEO of Edison Nation, Inc., added: "The return of 'Everyday Edisons' is not only a strategic marketing effort, but it upholds Edison Nation's commitment to continually deliver stimulating content to our community of inventors."
