Just about everybody has heard of Oprah Winfrey. She is and has been so popular that there is what is called the Oprah effect. Books that were mentioned on her show skyrocketed to best sellers. Diets she spoke about became THE trend. Whatever she endorsed turned to gold.
As we all know by now, Oprah has finished her 25th season of the Oprah Winfrey show, and she is now working on her own network and letting new faces take the lead on daytime TV. The big question lately is who will be the next Oprah.
If we look close enough, the answer has been brought to us a few years ago - BY OPRAH!!! Ever since Dr. Oz launched his own daytime television show, people across North America, and likely other countries as well make sure to watch him and listen to some tips that he has.
Recently I was watching an episode of Dr. Oz where he reviewed his 10 most important health tips. He had frequent watchers of his show come and help him demonstrate the health tips. Funny thing, they all had notepads full of notes. They write down what he says like students in a college classroom.
Being in the fitness supplement business, I see what products tend to trend. Not too long ago, Dr. Oz had a show about what supplements to take in order to lose weight the healthy way. Suddenly my customers were bombarded with requests, which eventually got to me "Ozzie... do you have any raspberry keytones or oat bran fiber for sale".
Whatever is shown and discussed on the Dr.Oz show seems to trend. He discussed the documentary "Forks over Knives" and suddenly the organic food store that I shop at was bombarded with requests for vegan organic cookbooks and recipe suggestions.
Dr. Oz has the power to attract the people, and obviously people listen to him. Dr. Oz is the new Oprah!
