What if you had the marketing backing like that of an established, nationally recognized food company? A substantial marketing budget, a social media reach of hundreds of thousands, and the ability to band together to cross promote your product with hundreds of other small culinary companies? Do you think you could increase your sales substantially? Yeah, we think so too.
The Elite Association for Tasty Mealtime Enterprises (E.A.T.M.E.) was formed to help small culinary companies grow their sales by giving them access to what they lack: resources. The idea came to me when I wanted to put some marketing might behind my own small culinary brand and quickly realized the veracity behind two very important concepts in the small company world: 1) You need money to make money and 2) There is clear power in numbers. The main focus of E.A.T.M.E. is to market our companies and get millions of potential customers to your electronic front door; your website. E.A.T.M.E. does this in three extremely powerful ways:
1) Utilizing the dues collected, the association funds a consistent and formidable advertising budget that is used to get eyes on its website. We are predicting that in a relatively short period of time, we will be able to garner between 500K and 1M monthly visitors to shopEATME.com. This is something we as small companies can't do alone because of our individual budget constraints. It gives smaller companies like ours a huge budget by pooling our resources vs. trying to go in alone. It plays on those two simple yet important business principles: "You Need Money to Make Money" and "There is Power in Numbers".
2) The second, equally powerful piston to this engine is collaboration both online and off. We have structured an extensive social media collaboration process among the associates to help build our collective and individual online presence. By cross promoting, our associates now have access to hundreds of thousands of pre-qualified customers interested in the culinary world. When we share each other's great recipes, articles, and other interactive driven content, we all benefit. We have also developed an extensive blog and recipes section featuring our products to get potential customers to the site as well. And don't miss out own brand of videos designed to get viral attention. See examples here: Youtube Videos
3) As a member of E.A.T.M.E., you also have access to business services at a discount. Use our roster of legal, accounting, marketing and consulting personnel to help grow your business for less than you could have paid on your own. By combining our buying power, these vendors have agreed to offer their services for a discount just to have access to our members.
