Pass the Kool-aid please! I’ve received yet another e-mail from Vince Martin, Founder & CEO of BigCrumbs and MainStreetSHARES. Well, I’m glad it’s all crystal clear for Vince….
It’s been a strange couple of months and we apologize for our extended absence. As we worked on our return, we began to realize that the significant effort we were undertaking to simply bring BigCrumbs back in its previous form didn’t make a lot of sense.
As the founder of BigCrumbs, I was suddenly faced with a very difficult decision. But, at the moment I made the choice everything immediately became crystal clear: the newly chosen path was absolutely the right one. No doubt. Zero.
So, after nearly a decade in business, BigCrumbs is permanently closed.
But, The Story Doesn’t End There
BigCrumbs has been successful by most measures, but we’ve never wanted to just offer you cash back or a coupon. Instead, we’ve always been passionately interested in helping our members to claim a share of the tremendous wealth that they create for others every day. Cash back was just a means to that end.
And, while BigCrumbs had gotten us off to a good start, it finally became clear to me that it wouldn’t get us to our destination. It was time to let go. It was time for something new.
So, with that in mind, the mission continues in a very big way. I am honored to introduce to you, the next phase, that will fulfill the vision and get us all across the finish line together: MainStreetSHARES.
Beyond Cash Back
MainStreetSHARES is not about the old cash back. It’s about you sharing all company revenue streams, continued referral commissions, and our members earning a cash payout in the event that we’re acquired. In other words, it’s not just about saving a dollar here and there. It’s about investing in yourself, claiming your own value, and finally getting your piece of the total pie.
The concept is simple: each member multiplies the value of other members, then everyone shares in that multiplied value. You’ve made many other companies tremendously valuable through this same multiple effect. This time, you’ll share in what you help to create. This is the path to having more.
We can’t begin to express to you how much we’ve appreciated you as a BigCrumbs member and how much we’d love for you to continue this exciting mission with us through MainStreetSHARES. Your BigCrumbs account has been transferred to MainStreetSHARES and awaits your activation via simply resetting your password!
But, we encourage you to check out the BigCrumbs site first. You’ll find more info and a few “Getting Started” steps to help you make the transition. From there you can click through to MainStreetSHARES and be on your way to a new world!
In celebration of our launch, we are setting aside an additional 10% acquisition payout bonus. Only those members who earn msSHARES in the next few months will share this bonus in the event of an acquisition.
A Closing Thought – Overcoming Objections
There will be objections to what we’re doing. In part, people don’t like change, and we understand that. It wasn’t easy for us either, at first. Some will feel that they’ve “lost” something or even be angered that we’ve had the audacity to do something bold. Frankly, it turns everything upside down–that is, in your favor.
Still others will say that it’s too complicated or that complexity isn’t your friend. It’s true that it’s not simple cash back, but it’s certainly easy enough to understand when taken with a dose of open-mindedness. In fact, the most important thing is to completely forget about the old cash back model and not try to relate it back to BigCrumbs.
We have a special section on the BigCrumbs site dedicated to some of these objections. We hope to impart clarity to those who just need a little nudge. But, we also realize that some won’t get it or even want to get it. Not everyone will make this transition and those who don’t will be earnestly missed.
But, the vision requires that we turn this corner, and for those who are able to see it clearly and reach for more, we know that we have created something far more rewarding and game-changing for you. We look forward to seeing you on the other side.
