Case in point; let’s say your company/service, distributes high end, gourmet coffee and other extremely popular beverages.
Like namely, exotic teas, lemonades and or cocoas etc.And let’s say, one of your more exotic, and therefore expensive 10 lb. bags of gourmet coffee, typically retails for $69 dollars or X.
And you simply can’t keep it on the shelves and or in stock. Especially during the extremely cold winter months and the major holiday season.
And even though your ten pound bag, has a cool 40%, gross front end profit margin.

Say for ex; you’ll initially approach a local, rather upscale women-s clothing store boutique, and let both the owners and their staff, have free one-three pound samples-of their choice-, of any of your high end gourmet coffees and or teas etc.
In exchange, for the store owners, allowing you to set up a temporary booth, in their store(s), on one of their traditionally slowest days of the week and or parts of the year.
