What is the best way for our startup to file a provisional software patent cheaply?

Provisional patents are interesting because they are the “to be continued” in the intellectual property world. Basically, a provisional patent allows you to file the intent to file a true patent later on. There is a benefit to filing provisional patents. Mostly, the advantage is that you can add “patent pending” to your product, which may help investors take a closer look at you. 

I’m not sure if a provisional patent is the right way to go without more information. But, I do know that affordability is definitely something all startups are looking for. I don’t suggest the DIY approach to patents because no matter what anybody tells you, it’s not as simple as it looks.
