Do you know the latest product to be sold at parties – much like Tupperware and some other products?
According to Cosmetic Enhancement (no, I am not a regular reader, my BlogBridge smartfeed finds stuff for me like that – disclosure: I am affiliated with those guys), the success of Botox has much to do with how it is marketed.
Doctors buy the stuff in bulk, and at a discount, and then organize Botox parties.
Interesting word-of-mouth marketing tactic for such a product…I wonder what’s next, liposuction parties, silicone parties?
This also reminded me of the interview that Terry Gross did yesterday with writer David Rakoff – who basically listed a whole list of great actors & actresses who would never get a job today without some form of extreme makeover. I am not sure this is a good thing…but with consumer-driven health care on the horizon, I guess it is inevitable.
