Re: The Official ITA Bemoaning Thread

Hmmm, I see where you're coming from. I personally think it would be a fool's errand UNTIL we get some actual sun studies behind us. Cuz for now it might reflect to the public that it is just a bunch of peeps selling tans in order to make a buck.

Remember, due to those studies, WE are perceived the bad guys here since medical studies are BIBLE.

Re: The Official ITA Bemoaning Thread

Cmon folks, this is the opportunity to come up with ideas and future strategies.

Do we have the ability to actually come up with viable solutions instead of spewing venom at the ones doing the heavy lifting? Will we have something to present?

This is the chance to attempt change, or ar least be heard. I pretty much told Robert, "let's see what we come up with, if anything at all"...

Re: The Official ITA Bemoaning Thread

Robert, remember we're gonna try to discuss things w/out you responding until we see IF something can be presented?

Otherwise, there's really no difference between this thread and all the others.

It's your chance to sit back snd enjoy the show and IF anything comes of it, then you can respond?

Agree?

To clarify....

You believe global warming - and the threat to the tanning industry - are both left wing ideologies??

Re: The Official ITA Bemoaning Thread

In order to gain the medical field's backing we would first need to provide them with intelligent, unbiased secondary research. This would prompt the movement towards primary research that medical professionals would heed. It would further need an extensive amount of primary research as reference. If we could pull that type of research off we would start to gain a stronger foot-hold against the anti-tan establishment.

Re: The Official ITA Bemoaning Thread

We're playing in the court of public appeal. We have to get our appropriately referenced secondary research out into the public's eye. This can be accomplished with little or no money. Its a matter of unity. My salon's FB page has some 6100 likes that means when I post I get my message in front of those folks. If we do our research appropriately we publish on a mainstream site like examiner.com or something along those lines then we must all link that article to not just our own FB pages but the blog portions of our website. It must be unbiased and written using something like APA (American Psychology Association) formatting or something similar in order to be taken seriously. With that type of an effort our SEO would go through the roof! Which means primary mainstream news outlets and search engines like google, yahoo, msn etc would pick up that article at its source. I'm new to the tanning industry, I have 20 years in the Fitness industry a BS in Kinesiology and an MBA. I'd be willing to work on the article/research. Give me the parameters of what needs to be proven and I'm happy to collaborate with anyone. As for paying memberships... I apologize there was no step-by-step approach to what organizations to join, what certifications to get etc. So at this time I am not a paying member of any particular agency or organization. I have a vested interest as does any salon owner in seeing tanning under a more positive light, it's not just my bottom line, it's yours as well! Just a thought.
