Case in point; let’s say,you currently have, a grand total of 15, local, non directly competing vendors, as either your JV and or cross promotional partners.
Meaning, at different times throughout the year, your bakery, gladly inserts, some of their very best, market tested, and extremely time sensitive flyers, in your paying customers bags.
And provided they do certain things for you, your JV partners, keep 100% of both the front and back end gross profits.
Here’s one of the primary reasons you’re so generous. 😀 (Just to keep the math extremely simple and therefore much easier to calculate! 😀 )
Let’s say each of these local vendors, currently have at least 1,500 opt in email and or mobile subscribers on their list.(1,500 x 15 = 22,500)
Which means entrepreneur, there is a grand total, of 22,500 locals, who can be reached, simply by sending, either an unscheduled, ‘broadcast’ email alert message. And or via a text message.

So each night, (about three hours before you close), since your shop is opened, M-Sat, but closed Sundays.
You have one or two of your local JV and or cross promotional partners, send a message to their list, letting them know, you’ll be closing in the next three hours, and rather than simply throw out your unsold goodies.
You’ll gladly discount your prices! 😀 Every under under $10 dollars saves 15%, (or X) and every order over $20 dollars, saves 30% or X.
So (theoretically speaking!), on average, a bare bones minimum of 1,500 emails and or text messages a night, go out to various local subscribers.
And let’s say, 30% of them respond. Your store gets flooded with 450 last minute shoppers. (1,500 x .30% = 450.)
Which basically means, you’ll probably, easily get wiped out of your remaining stock, correct?
Plus these local individuals, will blast the word out, both on and off social media! They’ll post pictures and shoot videos and or selfies, bragging about their good fortune, will they not? Yep!
Are you finally starting to appreciate, how even some, aspiring startup entrepreneurs, can and definitely will profit, from some strategic email marketing campaigns.
