Both groups are very picky about putting anything unnatural on their hands and skin.

Anyhow, his product, with a proprietary position, is marketed in many different niches, and the same product, with a different label, is sold in many outlets, and he still makes the product in his garage. Big enough for him, and with only a few thousand units sold per month, a stress free and happy way to live and make an outstanding income.

Of course, it helps to have an experienced marketer on your side too.

Hi Gordon,

I love that "angle" from a marketing point of view... When you think Amish and Mennonites, you think... natural, traditional, free of chemicals and toxins...

(At least that's what *I* think!)

I'd love to have a "use it up" product... Where people use it up, then buy another bottle, can, jar, or whatever of the stuff... If you can get that happening with a toll position, you're really in a great business...!

On a digital level, SAAS (software as a service) businesses I think are similar... Especially if you have a good toll position...

Best wishes,

Dien
