So why doesn't Anafit market Sesapure more aggressively as hangover cure/prevention?

    People love to drink and they would a lot more often if it wasn't for the hangover... I've referred a bunch of people to buy it and now they take it every time they drink.

    I've heard that shit like Chaser doesn't work but in my experience the extent of my hangover when using Sesapure is feeling dehydrated and it goes away by noon after a few glasses of water.

    I'm sure they could make a lot of money :dunno:

    Did you read his question?

    I haven't see Sesapure advertised on TV, the Radio, any health/fitness/wellness/alochol related media... I don't see small packets of it available on the counter at my 7-11....

    Product description on a website that isn't overly well-known outside of OTFN isn't exactly "aggressive marketing" :hsugh:

    That's not their area of expertise, and not the primary focus of the product (not the mention the company)

    In many cases it takes large capital expenditure for an "aggressive" marketing campaign, not to mention different/better/more demanding deals and contracts through suppliers and distributors.

    The barriers are LOW (anafit doesn't exclusively own pharmaceutical rights to the agents in the product) and is prone to imitation by a company with more resources.

    They already sell out of the product and are prominent within their niche. The principals (macro, ulter, et. al.) can give personal and pretty comprehensive advice, an advantage MOST supplement companies are missing.

    It's stretching the company too thin. Sesapure is popular, but allocating more anafit resources to pushing one product is risky, and may not fit the profile of their strategy.

    We know nothing about their suppliers, distribution, margins, working capital, etc. etc., ad nauseum.


    It's a cute idea, but for all intents and purposes anybody here could muster up something comparable if they could get the right financing.


    Then again I don't know jack shit about Anafit in particular.

    Maybe I'll see Billy Mayes and Macro on HSN while flipping through the channels tonight.

    It's the kind of advertising the FTC frowns upon. It kind of undoes the "drink responsibly" campaign. Unfortunately, unless there was a large scale double blind study, the kind drug companies have to do, we couldn't make that claim in an ad. Whether it works or not, unless the FDA says it works, you can't say it does. FDA approval is somewhere around $40 million these days.
    So we just tell people on the boards.

    ulter and blackice summed up what i was gonna say.


    advertising costs lotsa money, there are other barriers of selling it as a "hangover cure" and lobby groups will put up a tough fight for them.


    while on this topic how effective is it? I wanna try it out
