A Brilliant Idea

Starring you...

So, your shopping gives you ownership in something that it also makes more valuable.

We're proud to say that we pioneered the idea, and even prouder that it's catching on with savvy consumers just like you!

Why Ownership?

Because you deserve it, literally...

As a consumer, you have more power than you know. You create wealth every day. In fact, you're the ultimate source of all wealth that's created in the economy.

So, we believe that you should share in it. It's only fair. We started with virtual shares and now that the new crowd-funding act has made it possible to give you actual stock, we're giving our members a full ownership stake in MainStreetSHARES*.

You've made others wealthy. Now, unleash your value for you.

The Game Plan

Awaken

Spark

Reach & Teach Forward Thinkers - Currently Underway

In this phase, we locate and work with forward thinking members to help educate Main Street regarding how MainStreetSHARES is changing the economic game in their favor. From then, membership will begin to grow steadily, as early adopters reach later adopters, and the simple brilliance of what we're doing takes root.

Results: Increasing membership, widening name recognition, moderate media coverage

Grow

Flame

Viral Membership Increase - 6-12 Months (Projected)

Membership increases steadily as members reap the rewards and continue to spread the word. Media pick-up increases as our innovative empowerment of Main Street is juxtaposed against stories of the increasing wealth gap. The combination of member interest and media coverage creates a feedback loop, leading our growth to a critical mass. At this point, MainStreetSHARES will go viral.

Results: Viral growth, wide media coverage, unstoppable momentum

Share

Fire

Share Monthly Revenue With Members - Ongoing

Shared monthly revenue and referral commissions, plus msSHARES will fuel growth at every stage. Member excitement increases continuously as members earn more money and recognize that the growth in membership is multiplying their own potential return when MainStreetSHARES is acquired. Retailers also take note of increased member spending, thereby leading to more valuable member offers, increasing commissions, and more advertising revenue for members to share.

Results: Greatly increased company/member revenue and value, redirection of increasing retailer advertising spend to MainStreetSHARES

End Game

Inferno

Acquisition - 1-2 Years (Projected)

As a large percentage (very possibly the majority) of online shopping is directed through MainStreetSHARES and a significant share of retailer ad spending is redirected to MainStreetSHARES, its value will be massive and undeniable. To sell effectively online, retailers will increasingly turn to MainStreetSHARES. Likewise, it will be difficult for even large advertising companies to capture retailers' advertising revenue. They will then seek to acquire MainStreetSHARES.

Results: Acquisition of MainStreetSHARES, payment of member share of cash proceeds, many smiling faces


Note: This is a projection and in no way intended to be a guarantee. While we are aware that it is atypical for a "traditional" company to publicize its plans in this manner, we believe it's important for our vested members to understand our objectives.
