Just got back from an overnight trip into NYC(Pearl Jam concert). Stayed in Scarsdale overnight. I had printed the listed addresses for Cinnechol and CK41 and decided to check them out. I went to the Cinnechol address first and it was just a Fed/Ex-UPS place. They had mail boxes there. So I think the 'suite' number they list on the site if just a PO box. The guy there wouldn't give me any info.
Next I went up the road a few miles to White Plains to the CK41 office. I spoke with a young guy about the product and concern about its release. He said its going well and they are working actively on it. I didn't nail him for a release date but we spoke about the celebs. He said Carmen and Maria are still definites and they are still putting it all together. I asked about the Duff sisters rumor and he stammered a bit and said they are working with other talent. He also said they are taping testimonials and Dr. interviews.
I feel a little better by actually meeting someone involved with the project and seeing his enthusiasm about it. He also told me they were in the process if lining up the TV spots.
Hope this helps a little. As someone else said, I'm hanging around until the end of the year. By then we will know where we stand....
Back to the top.
No need to fixate on the July date. It was the EXPECTED launch date, and since when do we meet expectations around here? Point is, we're getting close. At this point, what's another month or 2 or 3 among friends? We're at the mercy of CK41/Respond2(aka R2C group) at this point.
Did anyone happen to notice this headline on the R2C website?
"Portland, Oregon - July 7, 2008 - R2C Group, the nation’s largest independently-owned response-driven advertising agency, today announced that it has acquired Chautauqua Communications, LLC. Headquartered in San Francisco, Chautauqua is an emerging response driven media organization, with extensive expertise in online, social media and direct mail. The acquisition expands R2C Group’s service offering by adding online creative and media buying expertise."
Sounds like we could sure use their services. Maybe this group has gotten involved with Phase 1 and is causing the extra delay? Especially since the July prediction was made on May 20? Who knows. Meanwhile, if you believe in the company and really do believe you're going to break even at 0.22, what a gift to be buying at 0.09! Hard to believe at this point that we won't eventually make it back to the twenties.
