InnerScope's Key Revenue Growth Initiatives
- InnerScope is rapidly expanding its "Sales Revenue Pipeline" by continuing its efforts to work with National "Big Box" Retailers and National Pharmacy Chains and expects to sign many more distribution agreements for its Hearing Products Portfolio by the end of the 2019.
- InnerScope is currently in the process of ramping-up the deployment of its network of interactive fully automated (unattended) Point of Sale Hearing Screening Retail Kiosks and Untreated Hearing Loss Information Center ("Hearing Kiosks") to be located inside large major other public locations, grocery stores, hospitals, sporting venues and retailers, local retailers, pharmacy chains. Hearing Kiosks provides InnerScope a very efficient and cost effective method of generating immediate revenue at each retailer's location. In addition, the Hearing Kiosks also provides continuous DTC Online Sales Revenue regardless of its location.
- InnerScope will be deploying its Hearing Kiosks within a 10 Mile Radius around InnerScope's Audiological Hearing Aid Retail Clinics locations ("Retail Clinic"). These strategically placed Hearing Kiosks will not only drive qualified customers to each Retail Clinic location, but also it's a "Highly Effective Referrals/Leads Program" that will significantly increase each Retail Clinic's Sales Revenue while decreasing each Retail Clinic's marketing cost, which in-turn will have a significant positive effect on the cash flow and the bottom line.
- InnerScope is continuing its Expansion "Rollout Plan" of opening new Retail Clinics.
Business Operations for Long-Term Shareholder Value
- InnerScope is successfully implementing and executing appropriate measures to improve on-time financial reporting practices as well as increasing its communication with its shareholders/stakeholders to ensure more timely information is provided to the investment community.
- InnerScope is continuing to explore strategic options for non-dilutive funding.
- InnerScope with key stakeholders in the investment community, are engaged in a robust effort to raise awareness of InnerScope and its mission to disrupt the current $10 billion dollar global hearing aid industry by changing the way hearing healthcare and hearing health products are delivered.
- As Revenues and InnerScope's Company Awareness continues to increase, InnerScope plans to up-list to a Senior Exchange.
"I am very pleased to announce that after nearly 3 years since InnerScope became effective as a Public Company, we believe, given its current rapidly expanding Sales Revenue Pipeline, plus its ever-growing multiple revenue streams, InnerScope is now at a pivotal point, ready for "Substantial" incremental Top-Line Revenue Growth," said Matthew Moore, CEO of InnerScope Hearing Technologies. "The recent announcement of InnerScope's development of its Hearing Kiosks has given InnerScope National and even International attention from many different business sectors and healthcare providers. This attention has put InnerScope on a strong revenue path to rapidly build significant momentum to continue to grow exponentially for years to come."
"There are nearly 50 million people in the United States that have reported to have some form of hearing loss. However, currently only about 7 to 8 million of those people are currently using hearing aids and/or any hearing assistive products. This is mainly due to high cost of hearing aids ($5,000 average cost per pair, of which 90% of health insurance plans don't cover) and lack of accessibility for the general public to have a convenient way to regularly self-check and monitor their hearing, as well as to the ability to decide to easily purchase hearing aids and/or hearing related products if their having any hearing issues," continued Mr. Moore.
"InnerScope has developed Award Winning Direct-to-Consumer Hearing Products that offers the same type of high quality technology and features which delivers the same quality hearing experience for the consumer at an average of 75% less cost than the traditional hearing aids offered by the Multi-Billion Dollar Multi-National Hearing Aid Manufactures. We pride ourselves that the consumer can be ensured that InnerScope's Hearing Products offers a huge saving without sacrificing hearing quality. We have no doubt that InnerScope's Hearing Product Portfolio and its multiple DTC distribution retail channels is leading the way to disrupt the current $5 Billion Dollar Hearing Industry in the U.S. by giving easy and convenient access to maintain hearing health for the virtually untapped market (currently worth tens of billions of dollars) of the 42 million people that are currently living with untreated hearing loss in America," continued Mr. Moore.
"Furthermore, InnerScope's unique and one of a kind Hearing Kiosk, once deployed, has now given the opportunity for the general public to have easy access at very convenient public locations to regularly check their hearing while also providing easy accessibility to purchase InnerScope's Hearing Products and its Hearing Health Products by either directly at the Hearing Kiosk retail locations or by ordering online directly from the Hearing Kiosk itself to have the products shipped directly to their home. There are a few hearing-screening kiosks out in the market place, but to our knowledge, there is nothing like InnerScope's Point of Sale Retail Hearing Kiosks anywhere. That is why, National Retailers to Local Retailers and even multiple sectors in the Healthcare industry are excited to connect with InnerScope for launching our Hearing Kiosks within their locations. We remain steadfast in our belief that our path to profitability has been clearly defined and we our very confident in with our outlook for the rest of 2019 and continuing into 2020 and beyond," concluded Mr. Moore.
