- We don’t need to provide fake reviews like so many other companies.
- If you own a tattoo shop we ask you to compare us to your regular products, and make the numbing assessment yourself. Don’t trust the reviews.
In today’s highly competitive market – it’s quite the dog eat dog world. Much of our whole world revolves around pushing out the other guy to slip in and snag yourself a slice of the pie – and that’s exactly how it’s supposed to work. Healthy competition, in particular between businesses, is the very heart of capitalism. In a world where participation trophies and
2nd grade graduation ceremonies celebrate everyone equally, this competitive idea still beats strongly in the chests of businessmen and women across the country. A fair and balanced market, full of competition makes for better prices, and quality of experience for everyone.
Some might say that competition is a bad thing, it leads to jealousy and in some cases misdeed. Competition is a healthy exercise that has driven some of our greatest inventions, and advancements both technologically and socially. Even war, the dreaded outcome of too much competition, has brought us advancements that might not have come any other way. But in measured amounts, in its proper place, competition is good for everyone. As long as everyone plays by the rules that is.
It has come to our attention that a few of our competitors – who shall remain nameless for the time being – have launched massive fraudulent campaigns filled with thousands of fake positive reviews on amazon and other sites. They have also pushed out hundreds of fraudulent negative reviews on us and other competitors in our market space. I wish I could say that this was a rarity in our field, but unfortunately it’s not. It’s healthy competition taken to the extreme, a dangerous extreme especially in the pharmaceutical industry, an industry that should be doing everything in its power to earn the trust of our fellow American citizens. It’s no wonder that we have groups of people boycotting vaccines and spouting conspiracies, when such fraud is so openly displayed.
It is not my intention to smear the name of any of our competitors in particular. They know who they are already. Having run many businesses myself, when you are staring down the barrel of a struggling company, and most others in your field are actively paying people to smear YOUR good name, it’s easy to see why someone would make this choice. These are people with families, and employees with families that depend on that income. It can start with a desire to balance out the fake bad reviews, and that leads down a dangerous road to actively promoting your company solely on fraud. No-one sets out to hurt others, they set out to make their life better, and slowly, little by little, sacrifice more of their integrity to achieve that goal.
It is however my privilege to proudly say, as the CEO for Pain Relief Naturally, supporting brands such as Numbify, Tatbalm, and Naturally HL, that we will not be joining them. I personally participate in every aspect of research and development, and blind testing at our company. I have tested our products side by side against dozens of others, and I can proudly say that if I cannot personally feel a significant difference between our products and others, that I won’t approve it.
We will not sully our reputation and integrity with fake reviews. We will not actively support fraud to take our competitors down. What we will do is stand as a beacon of integrity in the pharmaceutical industry. It is not enough to be just a little better than the rest. When we say our product is the best, we won’t hide behind laws protecting companies for fluffing their material. We say it because we tested it ourselves, and made sure. A person or company, especially one entrusted with the safety and health of the public at large, must hold themselves to a higher standard and that is my commitment to every one of our customers.
We hope that you will join us in insisting on honesty in advertising – and if you need something numbed, try our 5% numbing cream, gel, or spray at Numbify.com. It’s pretty great, I’ve tried it myself.
