Nutra Pharma is announcing the next phase of marketing their Over-the-Counter (OTC) pain reliever for dogs and cats, Pet Pain-Away™ through their direct response partner, DEG Productions
CORAL SPRINGS, Fla., July 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nutra Pharma Corporation (OTC:NPHC), a biotechnology company marketing Nyloxin® and Pet Pain-Away™ in the over-the-counter (OTC) pain management market, announced today that DEG Productions has signed an exclusive distribution deal with one of the nation’s leading direct mail marketers to launch a private label version of Pet Pain-Away™.
“Since we announced the new Pet Pain-Away marketing campaign by DEG, they have already created expanding product sales and a spike in national product recognition,” commented Rik J Deitsch, CEO of Nutra Pharma Corporation. "DEG is creating sales and educating new product users through infomercials (direct marketing) as well as online marketing and social media," he continued. "Their advertising features companion animals that are actual product users. This new agreement will allow access to a large population of the country that may not see the online or television advertising, but can be reached through catalog sales and direct mail marketing. It’s a completely untapped market for our products and includes millions of pet owners," he concluded.
Pet Pain-Away is a homeopathic, non-narcotic, non-addictive, over-the-counter pain reliever. The product is primarily aimed at treating moderate to severe chronic pain in companion animals. It is specifically indicated to treat pain from hip dysplasia, arthritis pain, joint pain, and general chronic pain in dogs and cats. Specialized proteins in Pet Pain-Away block the action of acetylcholine, a major stimulating neurotransmitter in the nervous system and activator of the inflammatory pathways. As a result, the pain and inflammation pathways are temporarily shut off.
“We are very excited about the sales opportunity that this highly targeted campaign presents,” commented Dan Sladkus, Co-President of DEG Productions. “The product will be marketed nationally to a proven list of pet product buyers through a stand-alone custom mailer,” he continued. “Due to the substantial nature of this list, which can reach millions of pet owners throughout the country, we feel that we will be able to educate new customers about the benefits of the product in a highly focused and efficient way,” he concluded.
The direct mail campaign is complimentary to the ongoing television campaign in that it is designed to acquire new customers and convert them into the monthly auto-ship program.
According to The American Pet Products Association (APPA) there are 89.7 million dogs and 94.2 million cats in the US. These companion animals are as susceptible as humans to ailments that require pain-relieving solutions. The total market for companion animals in the US reached an estimated $69.5 billion in 2017. Of these expenditures, over $15 billion was spent on medication for the animals. Additionally, a 2009 survey conducted by Virbac Pharmaceuticals puts the annual US market for companion animal pain relievers at more than $250 million.
