In today's Orange County (California) Register, a full page ad (that has to cost thousands of dollars) appears promoting and making available for purchase the # 1 Hearing Amplifier for "Only $34.50",
I would like to know who number 2 and 3 are.
As I have said many times before, You can tell more from an ad than just information on a product.
The Content and Illustrations in any advertisement of any type, readily reveals the level of Integrity of the Company responsibile and paying for the advertisement.
I hope the Register got a Certified Check with the ad submission.
The Ad starts out claiming that 750,000 Americans have "Ordered" their product.
Thats like saying the Lakers "Attempted" 750,000 baskets last year. How many did they score?
How many Ampli-Ear Hearing Amplifiers were purchased? How many were returned? How much money was refunded?
In the Note from the President, Christopher England, he does state that 3/4 of a million units were sold.
So if 750,000 were ordered, and 3/4 Million were sold, does that mean that none were returned?
He also states that "Hearing Amplifiers DON'T cost manufacturers thousands, or even hundreds of dollars to make".
That would really be hard to conclude since he sells them for "Only" $34.50 that is unless you order 3 and then they only cost $79.00 or $26.33 each.
This "Special" must be intended for 3-Eared People or for Groups that combine orders to say money.
Even an order for only 1 is shipped with Free Delivery.
Someone in the Advertising Industry must have advised Christopher England, the President, to be sure to include in the ad "As Seen On TV" because all Americans know that must mean the product must really be good. Certainly the TV Media Advertising People would never allow a product to be advertised on Television if it had no merit or wasn't what it claimed to be. We all know that.
I guess Christopher England couldn't sign Don Shula to endorse his product because of the conflict with SIEMENS.
Since PHONAK is promoting the Youthful Market (or at least those younger than SENIORS) and are in negotiations with David Beckham of the Galaxy team, he isn't available either.
Maybe Christopher can get Pete Rose. He's a gambler.
Just because I couldn't locate the American Research Institute on the World Wide Web, doesn't mean they don't exist. Certainly, with a name like that, there must be some Company in America.
I also couldn't locate the New England Institute of Health either, evidently the subsidiary of American Research Institute, that sells the vitamin supplement on their website that prevents or eliminates hearing loss, and also offers your money back.
They also provide a Customer Service listing for easy contact, that can't be contacted.
As I reread the entire page of advertising, I think how lucky, and hungry, the Orange County Register must be. In this time of Newspaper decline, the Register was lucky to find somebody with enough money to pay for a full page ad.
I also think how lucky Christopher England (if such a Person exists, at least one connected with American Research Institute of West Greenwich, RI.)
to be able to gather the mailing list of 750,000 (or sometimes known as (AKA) 3/4 MILLION People (FOOLS) which can be sold for millions.
Such a mailing list, of PROVEN SUCKERS has to be worth Millions of Dollars to those trying to sell bridges,desert plots, and 50% return on investment schemes.
The potential is unlimited.
What would such a mailing list be worth to Hillary Clinton for campaign fund solicitations?
I own one of the advertised devices. I bought it for research purposes (just like those People that bought the iPhone to dissect) from one of my Clients who ordered 3 (for the savings provideded, he's cheap, obviously), He has since returned his 2. I haven't.
The same Client has since bought 2 PHONAK Micro-Power from me for $3,990, including a remote, and also the Micro-Power 9 (which has the SAVIA Circuit) which is more expensive than the Micro-Power 5 and a lot more expensive than the Micro-Power 3, which can be controlled by a remote.
Thanks Christopher. Although you make a lot more money when you sell $3,990 worth of your products.
I would imagine when American Research Institute (I wonder if they do Field Research or publish White Papers) orders a Container of the AmpliEar product from China if they sell any to the Manufacturer of CRACKERJACK?
It would be perfect as a prize.
My Advice to all Consumers of America.
Don't waste your time or money on the AmpliEar.
Get a free hearing test, and with the test results and careful consideration of whether or not you really need a Hearing Aid, then visit a COSTCO near you, or visit a Miracle-Ear located within SEARS and when Miracle-Ear runs one of their ENTICEMENT ADS inviting you to buy 2 Hearing Aids for $995.00....Go for it. Under no circumstances be talked into anything more expensive.
Don't feel sorry for Miracle-Ear, they are still making about $800 profit. And don't feel sorry for the Dispenser, he's probably still making a commission of about $200 which is not bad for a couple of hourse effort. Besides, he or she (I must be PC) probably needs the experience. Both with the Consumer and the Computer. But chances are the Aids they sell for $995 ( 2 during their sale) are probably not programmable. Never the less it is still a very good deal for somebody that really needs hearing aids.
I guess the thing I resent most about the full-page ad in the Register, is that they had the gall and audacity to include the word: INTEGRITY.
What an insult. And its my favorite word.
BUYER....BE VERY AWARE.
