Any update on when you'll be able to take orders? It sounds like you're getting pretty close.

I hate to say any dates, just 'cuz it seems like there are always delays. But best case scenario is that the tubes get to the manufacturer on March 2. They fill them up in 1 week's time. Then they send to the distributor. So March 15 or so would be doable if everything goes smoothly. We're definitely close tho!

I’ve heard from a manager of a big chain store that distributors pay the big chain stores to have their product on the store’s shelves… especially new products. Sounds like trouble Dan.

A lot of ppl are too lazy or embarressed to buy that kinda stuff when they go shopping too tho, plus just in the initial sales from this site, Dan will get about 20,000 buyer i reckon, bear in mind there's only about 5000 members, but there's always about 3-4 times more ppl lurking as Guests than there is members at any one time.

Then there's the advertisement from his book, which will make ppl check out The Regimen more... an they might also wanna try his BP Gel.

Then from the book could be reviews in the paper, interest by Derms an Doctors, maybe TV + Radio interviews if someone declares it a GOOD home method for fighting acne. Profits go to more advertisements and maybe promotional offers, then, eventually... it'll be in the stores.

An don't forget the power of 'word of mouth'... a lot of ppl will hear about it off their friends.

BTW - As far as i know what that Manager said to you doesn't seem to add up. In my experience, prolly not as much as the manager, lol... but anyway, the Chain Stores buy it off the upplier who pays the distributors to hold it in their warehouse an then dispatch it when then get orders from the Stores.

Unless the distributors buy it for themselves, in which case they will buy from the suppliers an then sell it onto the Stores. I don't think they're gonna pay them cash tho, they'll more likely knock a few pennies off the price of each unit. An when the stores are buying is bulk of 1000's, as they do... that profit adds up.

I don't think the plan was to try to get it in stores right away. I thought it was just to be here in the beginning. All I know is I'm ready to order a case!
Thanks for the update Dan!

yup...same steps. In fact, those who have tried it have claimed that it could save time because it goes on a little better. It's all up to you.

Update:

The first batch passed spec in the lab, and the first 5000 tubes were filled yesterday. They should be sent to the distributor today or tomorrow. At the same time, I got approved for the shopping cart yesterday. Bank of America is sending over paperwork FedEx for tomorrow or Friday. At that point I have to download software and get the cart running. Then I have to make an order and double check that it is running smoothly. So I'm definitely hoping for next week for a launch.
