The Story of Orabrush

We want to thank YouTube for leveling the playing field and making something like Orabrush possible 🙂 Dr. Bob Wagstaff (75 yr old inventor of the Orabrush) spent 8 years trying to bring Orabrush to market. He spent over k on an infomercial. It only sold about 100 orders. He approached Walmart, Walgreens, CVS and many others, but no one was interested in his tongue cleaner. He approached Oral-B and Colgate asking if they wanted to buy his patent. They were not interested. In 2009, as a last ditch effort, Dr. Bob went to the Marriott School of Management at BYU and asked a market research class to see if they could come up with new ways to market the product online. The student group presented their findings and said: “92% of the people who would actually like to try Orabrush will not buy Orabrush on the internet. We suggest you drop the idea of marketing Orabrush on the Internet.” A student (Jeffrey Harmon) who was not a part of the project raised his hand and asked, “That means 8% probably will buy Orabrush. That is millions of people, why don’t you focus on them?” Dr. Bob approached Jeffrey after the class. He wanted to learn more about what Jeffrey had to say. Jeffrey said, “I love your product. I could sell Orabrush online.” Dr Bob offered Jeffrey his old motorcycle (at 75 years old, Dr. Bob didn’t ride his Motorcycle much anymore) in return for helping market Orabrush. Jeffrey was thrilled and started working on Orabrush in the mornings and at nights before and

Apple Macintosh Marketing Story: Fact & Fiction

[Recorded: January 22, 2004] It was the autumn of 1983. Business Week magazine had an IBM personal computer on its cover, with the ominous words, And the winner is…IBM. Apple Computer was in a world of hurt. The Apple II had lost its competitive edge. The Apple III was a sales disappointment and the Lisa, introduced in January 1983, was a financial failure. Great expectations were being placed on the Macintosh, scheduled to launch on January 24, 1984. Yet there was skepticism both in and outside the company. There was no hard disk support. The screen was too small and it wasn’t in color. There was limited software. Yet many believed that the Macintosh was indeed The computer for the rest of us. The engineers knew it. The software guys knew it. And most of all Steve Jobs knew it. The challenge for the Mac Marketing Team was simple: They had to establish and hold a beachhead. Or else they and the product would die. The introduction of the Macintosh computer launched a comprehensive and integrated approach to high-tech marketing. Much of what was highly innovative in 1984 is now standard fare for all product introductions. This unique Computer History Museum event is part lecture, part reunion and part presentation with six key members of the Apple Macintosh launch team looking back 20 years. Mike Murray, Mike Boich, Andre (Andy) Cunningham, Joanna Hoffman, Guy Kawasaki and Steve Scheier come together to tell the inside stories behind one of the most insanely great product
