bodybuilders as a consumer segment are always going to be there, but the group has definitely shrunk over the last five years.  Any company that is breaking $30 million in revenues is targeting a broader audience.  But, everything in the diet/nutrition category is flat/down.  There's been zero innovation in the last few years.  Until something new comes out that actually does something, it will stay flat.

Depends on how you look at it.  I agree, most companies that are +30 million in revenue are targeting "mainstream" consumers, but the industry being "flat" has little to do with lack of innovation - imo.  It's oversaturation, poor marketing practises and a terrible economy.  Everyone is "down" and the supplement industry - made up of non essential products, will be among the companies hit hardest.

I've worked with a few of the larger companies out there and they have some cool stuff in the pipeline, but most of it is far to targeted for the "mainstream", and the bb market is oversaturated as it is.  Look what ISI has done.  Look at all their new branches and the way that they are marketing them.

Even though you got a C in macroeconomics (not micro, right?), Debussey = sure you got a better grade in the more marketing-based subjects 8)

It was micro!  Man, you have a good memory.  I hope I'm good at the marketing stuff, or else my company is going to fail!  So far so good....

You posted an img. from your office or something once Debussey thinks. Unless you have changed jobs, it looked like a pretty big company so you sure have some responsibility on your shoulders :o

Ha.  Yes, I do like the Zegna suits.  This might make me a "twink" around here, though.

Good stuff, good luck with that :D

They're awesome suits. I doubt most Getbiggers could spell Zegna, let alone buy one.

Materialistic culture. But Body's gotta look the part so there's nothing wrong with him owning good suits.

I like a nice suit.  It's a nice investment - imo.  Fits great, looks good.  Helps you to look your best when meeting with possible clients and all that, shit.

The representative-look part is obvious. It was more the "Yeah right, you own those suits? Sure.." responses Debussey reacted to. What's so unlikely about a business-person investing in being representative? :-X

I figured you thought I was being sarcastic in my comment. I wasn't. I'm not trying to insult him in any way.

Not a problem, champ.  8)

Depussey's intellect = ever decreasing, so it's understandable if you slip up more than usual.
