  • While we are seeing revenue today, we expect rapid growth and profitability to come in the fourth quarter of 2010 as optimize our return on marketing and PR. Over 40,000 paying subscribers by that time will make that possible. Years 3, 4, & 5 will show more rapid growth in revenue due to an increase spend on marketing, product, and PR along with improved efficiency. And, of course, this a subscription revenue model.Our 2009 goals are well within reach. We started charging in late April and we are already 1/3 of the way to our 2009 revenue goal.
  • To make all of this happen, we are looking for an additional $2-4MM in funding.We will engage in parallel efforts to improve the product and increase the reach and effectiveness of our marketing. In addition, we expect to hire two additional people to work in these areas.Finally, we see our organization as an attractive acquisition target for companies like WebMD, Weight Watchers, and even one of Blue Cross-Blue Shield companies.
