Chip Bronzin: First of all, I just wanted to thank those tanning professionals who have embraced my ideals and ambitions to rid the industry of Salonsense Media’s Performance Enhancing Displays, AKA ‘PED’s.’ I’m honored to expose them for providing salons with an unfair advantage. I mean, at least those clinics that supply performance enhancing drugs to athletes do it under the table instead of right out in the open like Salonsense does. I hear they are even going to be selling again at Nashville this year. It’s simply despicable!
ist: WOW! You really are fired up about this. Does this mean you have some heated evidence against Salonsense to present?
Chip: Let me answer your question with a question of my own … Do I look like a skilled graphic designer with years and years of experience?
ist: Honestly not at all. Your persona screams detective and nothing else.
Chip: Precisely. So how is it that someone that has no design backbone in his body could come up with six months of marketing material in less than one hour for only $69? Look at this. I was able to put together the following specials for Christmas, New Years, Valentine’s Day, back to school, and Halloween! And, I was able to schedule these ads to run all in advance by setting up playlists on a calendar.
ist: Really? That’s cool! You designed these all yourself?
Chip: That’s the point. I DIDN’T. All I did was log in to their PED Management Website they like to call ‘GENERATE.’ Then I chose the ADS I liked, input a few pieces of text, chose images and lotions that I wanted to include and voila, it spit it all out for me. Talk about Performance Enhancing. More like Performance Creating, as I have no talent when it comes to stuff like this.
ist: Honestly Chip. I’m just not seeing how this is a bad thing. Salonsense just turned you into a whiz designer and saved you money!!
Chip: You just made my point for me… It’s only fair if all salon owners play by the same rules. In the real world, any normal salon owner has to do this stuff on their own, or hire an experienced designer, pay them $50 an hour for each advertisement and hope it turns out looking sharp. It takes good old fashion hard work and lots of money to make these things happen. Why should we let some salon owners get this unfair advantage?
ist: Why wouldn’t we allow this? I mean, if a salon owner likes the idea of bringing in a tool like Salonsense to help enhance their advertising and training skills tenfold, then by all means, I think we should support it. I mean, it’s not like it’s illegal.
Chip: Well it should be, and I will continue to fight this … with or without you.
