However, I was disappointed by their latest direct mail catalog.
Issue? Very weak lead with no urgency, no specificity, no unique message.
OUR MOST POPULAR SPECIALTY SUPPLEMENTS… (that’s it?)
Why waste the precious front cover by just repeating the obvious?
(And look how static and rectangular all the graphic elements are. There is no movement here to match the “energy” we are supposed to get from these wonderful products…)

Why should I get excited about and buy Triflex? CoQ-10? or Fish Body Oil?
This is a perfect example of a catalog cover gone to waste.

This is a great idea. It immediately projects autohority and confidence in GNC products.
