  1. Virile mane Pricing War...UPDATE


    Pricing Update:

    There has been some confusion and anger over the pricing of Virile Mane across several websites, and I am going to nip this in the bud before feelings get hurt and customers get angry.

    We debuted the product with BETA packagin (see earlier in the thread, around page 10 or so) at a DISCOUNT to get the formula into your hands while we got final labels done. There then ensued a pricing war which has gotten out of hand. The prices posted on other sites is NOT acceptable, nor will it be resupplied until things are in order. I did not invest countless hours of time and MANY thousands of dollars making this perfect only to barely be able to break even.

    The retail cost on this WILL be around $42. Final labels ARE on the way now, and the beta product (SAME FORMULA...FINAL FORMULA IS INSIDE THE BOTTLES) will cease.

    We are puttin together stack deals to save you what we can, but at the end of the day, I need to feed my wife and 3 kids while still having enough to expand the product line. IN case you hadn't seen, I have about 5 products ready to roll just lacking funding.

    I appreciate everyone's patience, and for those that got an unbelievable deal you should count yourself as lucky. Nobody can take a loss like that selling something for long.

    Nutraplanet has been VERY supportive of RPN, and continues to do so. There have been accusations of people feeling "ripped off" and deceived into thinking they were getting a smoking deal. I feel some perspective needs to be placed into this situation. The product at $30, and even at $42, IS a phenomenal deal even if it lasted a month. This is a product designed to last 3 months, and is effective solo.

    Everyone wants to save a few bucks, but unless RPN freezes all development and the new products never see the light of day, things have to find homeostasis.

    All the thanks and respect in the world to Nutraplanet, for without THEIR initial support of everything we have done, none of our products would have been enough to keep the company alive. I chose to buck the Muscletech/BSN/ad nauseum business models and actually try to get you guys the best products at VERY good prices.

    I hope you all understand and remain with us as we make this transition.

  4. I support you, big fellow... of course from all reports, I should say small.

    I buy at the minimum 3 RPN products a month (sometimes 4), so I hope that helps.

    By the way, my mother loves the Java Fusion Reed Diffusor. And my wife is addicted to Bobu Shimmering Body Butter! Oh, and Renegade.

    EDIT: Any chance on a Christmas Care Basket?

    I think I announced this at BB.com, but forgot to here.

    CLEAR before and progress pics are invaluable to us for marketing and literature.

    We are going to pick about 8 people that submit clear, bright, and complete photo logs of usage. These 8 will release permission to use their pictures in ads, etc. and in exchange will be given a full year's worth of the Hair Growth Stack (Java Lustre, Virile Mane, NOxidant, and the conditioner.)

    You're not, however you probably wont get it.

    In the end, especially as the, up until now, private feedback we have been getting becomes more public and the results stand on their own it becomes one of value - do I, as a consumer, feel that comparable results on my own head are worth spending 50 cents a day (around $42 for 3 months, = $14 a month/30 days = roughly 50 cents)?

    Given the reaction so far, I could (and maybe in a different mindset would) have charged $80 or so and STILL been a better value than minox.

    This thread was made to address that as well - to show that we are in this economy too, and feeling it like everyone else. It was posted to let everyone know what the FINAL retail would be and let each begin the thought process necessary to come to grips with the beta sale being over and to realize that it's still the best valued, and likely most effective, option around.

    You are absolutely right, 42 dollars for 3 months is almost too good to be true. People are willing to buy test boosters here for 40 dollars a bottle, which will last them a month at the most and which will give them no results whatsoever. (perhaps a slight increase in libido) Go figure!

    And bless you for the Banish; the last time my face was this clear, was before I hit Puberty.

    Wow, I was planning on doing an unsponsored log before I even saw this, this is just amazing. That is a fantastic opportunity dsade.
