Online Grocery Shopping – In Or Out?
With online grocery shopping growing at an astounding rate, with annual sales of $1 Billion now and expected to reach $85 Billion over the next 5 -10 years, the game is changing to capture this market.
There is one company in the South East that has taken on an added step to capture the online grocery shopping business that has already caused an explosion across America.
The company is South Eastern Grocery and they have brought the grocery business into the network marketing arena with MPB Today, they are still in their infancy but are in front of the trend.
In just the last 7 weeks have grown to over 10,000 reps into the marketing team. The question I had is “What would attract someone into the online grocery shopping industry?”
In business, especially ‘network marketing’ there needs to be 4 important factors at work, lets see if MPB Today fits this model…
#1 Is the market expanding? Answer: Yes due to the age of the baby boomers, cost of gasoline, and with most families everyone is working.
#2 Is the economy positioned correctly to succeed? Answer: How many people are looking for a second income source (millions).
#3 Is the product consumable and purchased every month, is the ticket high enough to create a great business? Answer: everyone must eat, average spent per month $449. (creating huge residuals).
#4 Is what separates you apart from others great enough that most can see the benefit of doing business with you,? Answer: no one makes it possible to Eliminate Your grocery bill.
Is it working? Well the company has an 80% retention rate with customers using the service (almost unheard of in the industry). Maybe its too early tell, the company has been in business for just over a year, and the network marketing side of things only for a couple months. What it does have in its favor is what is happening in the network marketing industry, in this economy people are looking for ways to eliminate expenses not add new ones.
With so many companies in the industry that market incredible products, the consumer needs to ask themselves; “Can we afford the new added expense?” This question weighs heavy on almost every family, especially the one handling the budget each month, because of this it makes a huge difference in the opportunity at hand.
Most reps in the industry are tired of the on going monthly auto ship cost, anywhere from $69 – $200 a month, with MPB Today there is none.
With a one time fee of $200 plus only $10 a year for your website, with no monthly auto ship cost to be in business, MPB Today becomes very attractive, and I believe anyone that puts the effort into the system can be earning $500 a week in their first month.
MPB Today is building momentum, will it be around 10 years from now, no one knows; however they seem to be positioning themselves properly and attracting some key net workers in the industry.
