Don't know where to go, might as well try here...Submitted by R0NP4UL1T1CS on Thu, 12/23/2010 - 13:50
** this is not a scam, just an honest guy looking for some help**
First off let me just say that I know I am an unknown member of the DP, I rarely post, but have been visiting the site for ~ 2 1/2 years. Most of my posts have probably been conspiracy related, so please don't hold that against me lol. I am a 23 year old college "drop out" who decided to take a full time job instead of finishing school. For the last 9 months I've been working in an office, staring at a computer screen for ~45 hours a week. The job isn't bad, I can dabble on the internet as I please, but each day that passes only fills my mind with more anxiety, as I, like most of you, realize what the future has in store for our country. My family has no desire to try and prepare for anything but good times in the future, I'm trying to open their eyes, but honestly it's not working. That being said, here is my request:
I am looking for a trustworthy DP member with business experience/$$$ to help create/invest in a product(company?) that I am SURE will absolutely blow-up and generate a lot of profit. I'd rather not divulge any details on the product as I honestly think if done correctly, this could be sold nation-wide and generate insane amounts of income.
I have no prior business experience other than jobs I've had working for the man. I've never patented anything, and certainly don't have enough $$ for a patent lawyer (a necessity as this product would be very cheap to make, and probably easily copied and sold). I'm not willing to try and get the loans for this myself(nor do I think that I could even GET a loan due to my lack of credit and the status of the banks right now).
I live in a fairly wealthy area around Jacksonville, FL and have begun to search (through family/friend's social networks) for an individual willing to help me out on this. I've got one gentlemen who I've just begun to speak with who has many friends with $$$, so this may be one avenue, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask the DP. Of course the anonymity of the internet makes me hestitant to request such assistance, but I'm honestly becoming desperate to get this thing rolling. I thought I could do this all myself, but at this point I'd be happy to even take a small piece of the pie, as it'd be much much more than the 12 an hr I make now.
In a vague nutshell, my product is something that could be sold at many different venues/events around the nation. It would be very cheap to manufacture, and appeals to all aspects of the market - the venue, the consumer, and most importantly the advertisers. The product would basically sell itself, as I believe it has a high incentive to be purchased by the consumer. I honestly believe as soon as it was picked up by a couple of venues/companies, everyone else would jump on board as well, as it's advertisement gold. (On a side note, this could also help promote the fight for liberty in this country and help wake people up!).
Monetarily speaking, I would estimate that an investment of ~35k would get this thing up and running. My goal is to saturate the market with MY product, not allowing copy-cats to find opportunities in certain places. My ultimate goal would be to actually manufacture these myself instead of selling the idea to the highest bidder)(I've recently come across a connection that mamufactures solar panels in India for VERY cheap, and he has said he could definitley find someone to manufacture my product as well).
I believe that the product would cost > $1 to make and would be sold for ~$5. Even with pieces of the pie going to the venue/charity (another big incentive for the consumer to purchase) that is still a solid profit. Not to mention, advertisers would be champing at the bit to get on it, which would bring in a lot more $. To ballpark the overall #'s of products sold I'll use an NFL stadium:
1 NFL stadium (1 out of 32!)
Lets say Everbank Field in Jacksonville (Go Jags!)
Going low on attendance I'd say ~ 50k individuals are there on any given sunday throughout the year (16 games in a season)
Out of 50k invidiuals, say a small % of them, about 10% chose to purchase the product (I think it would be much more, perhaps even %70+).
5k people purchasing $5 product = ~25k in retail sales on this 1 product (say 50% purchased, that's 125k!)
Now, that is only 1 game out of 16, at 1 out of 32 venues across the nation. Ballparking 25% of people purchasing the product at all 32 venues for 16 weeks, comes out to about 6.4 million dollars in sales for the season. Insane amounts of $$ if you ask me, and that doesn't even include the influx of $ from the advertisments. That ballpark # is also very low IMO, as I think a very large majority of consumers would purchase this product on a weekly basis, so we're talking 10's of millions, and that's only with the NFL. There are countless other venues/ events that this could be sold at - the numbers are staggering.
Basically, I feel like Charlie here sitting on a golden ticket, I just need to find Grandpa Joe to take me to the Factory! The amount of profit produced by this could help prepare ALL of my family and friends for the future, and then some, easily! I know this is an odd post, but like I said I've grown desperate for assistance, and felt like the DP was a good place to go - I don't know any of you personally, but for the most part if you're a Ron Paul supporter and frequent the DP, then you're more than likely of high character. Hopefully I get some replies on this, whether anyone is willing to make a leap of faith, or just some kind words of encouragement/critique. Hopefully I didn't write this for nothing, my boss doesn't pay me to sit on the DP :). Also, I know this is a vague post and I don't have all my ducks in a row, but you have to start somewhere! I appreciate your time if you managed to get through this mess, hope to be hearing from you soon. Happy Holidays to the DP Family,
