Shark Tank Success and Failure Story
Alpha M vs Bombas Socks
The inventor of the Alpha M seen in Shark Tank Season 4, Aaron Marino, recently posted this video titled "My Shark Tank Story - How Shark Tank Can Change Your Life". Aaron interviews his good friend who's also a Shark Tank contestant, David Heath, from Bombas Athletic Socks. Together they reveal several interesting facts what happened after their appearance on the Show and how it's changed their lives. One business did over $120,000.00 within 24 hours after appearing on Shark Tank, while the other sold just a single product.
Can you guess what Shark Tank product sold only a single unit after appearing on the Show?
While it's not be the biggest failure of the Show, (He did sell one) the Alpha M Manscaping DVD's was solid information and just needed a different marketing strategy. As of this writing, Alpha M's You-Tube Channel now has over 735,000 subscribers which is by far the largest of all other Shark Tank Entrepreneurs and even the Sharks themselves. Aaron's product didn't receive the Shark Tank Effect like a lot of contestants do, but what He walked away with was hundreds of thousands of people interested in his upbeat videos. No subject is off-limits, especially when talking about his Shark Tank Story.
The other side of the Shark Tank coin is Bombas Athletic Socks from Episode 601. Aaron does an excellent job interviewing David Heath about his Shark Tank Success Story after the Show. While the Alpha M products generated $300 in sales after appearing on Shark Tank, the Bombas Athletic Socks generated over $120,000.00 within the first 24 hours. It's been just a little over a year since Bombas appeared on the Shark Tank with sales now over $4.5 million. Heath also mentions the deal with Daymond John during Episode 601 did in fact close and a big reason Bombas continues to climb the Shark Tank Success Ladder.
As far as Marino plugging Bombas Socks at the end of the video, we'll, if all else fails, He could become a famous infomercial spokesman knowing how to keep an audience captivated on just about any subject imaginable.
