ActivSkin's debut on the talk show circuit went very well today! I was the final guest of Gail Hogan, the host of Daytime Columbus. Produced locally by the NBC affilliate, WCMH-TV, the show takes a lighter look at events of the day and the entertaining side of the Central Ohio community. Gail does an excellent job of preparing her guests and providing engaging interview questions. It was a very friendly and comfortable experience.
You can watch the video on the NBC4 website at: http://www.nbc4i.com/cmh/online/daytime/daytime/#guestvideo. When you go to the website, scroll down through the 'NBC4i Video' until you see, "Leg Relief for Men" which you can click to view the segment on ActivSkin. This should be available for one week, after which they will move it to another section of their website for the next 3 weeks (go to http://www.nbc4i.com/cmh/online/daytime/daytime_links/) Also, don't forget that we are scheduled for two more appearances on Daytime Columbus: June 22nd and July 23rd at 11:00 am EDT.
As I said above, the discussion was very engaging. Gail made the point that despite the fact that there are very few options available to men who have problems with leg circulation, they are just about as likely to suffer from it as women. We talked about how men can wear ActivSkin legwear with shorts if they so choose, it is certainly not necessary that they do. Since I'm somewhat of the 'Poster Boy' for men's legwear, I can be seen just about everywhere wearing dark colored legwear. But if men aren't yet comfortable with the concept of this being a men's product, they can just wear them under their long pants.
Gail wasn't just blowing smoke when she said she didn't know I had them on until I said something about it. When I arrived at the studio and was talking with one of the producers about arranging the product packages, she commented that she had been told to leave the coffee table out, because I would be wearing the legwear, "but she could see that I wasn't" so she was going to leave it in--until I tugged at the material on my knee and demonstrated that I was wearing ActivSkin right then. I think next time I may go with black, just to shake things up a bit.
Here's a thought for my non-legwear, or newly-initiated-to-legwear, readers: I'm open to suggestions as to the content of the upcoming appearances. What would you, the person who's just been initiated to the men's legwear concept--and doesn't quite know what to make of it, like to see discussed in one of the upcoming appearances on the show? I'm not saying we'll definitely act on suggestions received here, but I am interested to hear what you would like to hear about? Any constructive criticism is welcome also.
We'll probably tend to repeat some of the information on subsequent appearances, as there will be many people who did not see the first one. But, I'm giving thought right now as to what would be good to cover the next time, too. Of course, we only have about five minutes or so--so we have to keep it somewhat simple.
