Anyone doing the Nitro2Go business? How well have your efforts gone? How has their free merchant program worked compared to not using it when selling to C-stores? Also, Dod you do there 2 for $3 promo and how did it go?

I realize that different markets yield different results from different efforts. Just looking for insight before I do this. Thanks.

Watching them lose stores by the day (and I mean every-single-day) here in NY. 2for$3 means nothing when people don't even like 1.

Product was great as an ephederine based pill a couple years back. The drink.....good god. I'd rather spike another Energy Drink with ANTHRAX and sip that for a few minutes.

Just my $.02, and I'm sure most agree.

Seriously don't waste your time with Nitro 2 Go. They make it sound like you can make some good money, but when the product doesn't sell after the second order even at 2 for $3 then you are stuck with pallets of the stuff. Nitro 2 Go just doesn't have enough name recognition, doesn't have any corporate chains, and just doesn't sell.

Nitro 2 go disappeared from NY. I saw it in the early part of 05 but gone with the wind.

I actually like the taste of Nitro2Go. It's never been introduced in the Wisconsin market before so maybe it will be better received. I appreciate the input though.

Just wondering. You mention quite often that you request or receive free samples of energy drinks.
Are you in the whole sale or retail business of selling energy drinks?

If not then what motivation would a energy drink company have in sending you or anyone free samples? A good number of companies will require a fee for sending out samples. Do you pay anything for your samples?

Just wondering. smile.gif

I received their whole line of energy drinks as samples for investigating this as a business opportunity. They did not require a fee for it to be sent to me and they shipped it DHL 2 day and inside were 5 cans plus a t-shirt and some literature.

My belief on why they ship it for free is because their marketing system depends on their free marketing program in the beginning when you are starting the business. I guess why would they charge you if they are asking you not to charge when looking at doing business with C-stores??

Agreed.
My point was that samples are not offered to the general public. Samples and promotional materials are offered to prospective companies and on going business. I should have clarified my comment.

Most large companies will not send out samples with out inquiring the nature of the request. smile.gif

Cool,I would like to read your magazine. Do you have a website? I did not accuse you of trying to get free drinks. Chill is the pill. I asked you what business you were involved with or operated. No bad vibes. :D

Peace out. smile.gif
