I don't see why a direct-to-consumer approach wouldn't work better for each of those services mentioned. For the same reasons you've listed. Plus the less than 1% success rate. Plus selling a dream. Plus brainwashing everyone into this cult-like thinking that leads one to view every friend and family member as a potential cash cow.
