Hello and welcome to the first edition of Reid's Ramblings.
You are among the first of millions to sign up for what we are confident will become the single most efficient and widely used System for locating stone remnants, beginning in North America. We are delighted that you’ve decided to join our community of members. The System was designed for you and we are very eager to hear your comments and suggestions that you feel would make The System more interesting for you to use. This is “the new way to buy stone”!
These are some of the things that we are interested in hearing your thoughts about:
- How do you feel about the cost of your purchased piece(s) of granite remnant?
- How does the site feel and look? Is it comfortable and intuitive to use? Does all of the verbiage make sense and quickly guide you where you need to go?
- Do you like the concept of the Member Rating Platform?
- Do you like that we offer delivery virtually anywhere?
- What sort of things would you like as gifts from our Rewards Program for being dedicated members of The System? Dedicated defined as responding swiftly to all requests and purchasing pieces often. Gift cards (from where?), food gifts, concert tickets or discounts toward future purchases? Please tell us what you’d like and if you have any input of incentive program ideas we’d love to hear them.
- Do you like the site clean and to the point or would you like to see some other content not limited to an industry forum, classifieds for equipment/tools or jobs, humor, advertising opportunities?
- Do you like our concept of recycling, reusing and giving granite a Green stamp of approval?
- How was your experience overall?
We have been and are currently serving well over 100 members in the Chicago & Milwaukee markets and a few in other states. Thank you to our long time existing members in making this concept so successful and getting us to this point of modernism and automation in our release of this site, we truly appreciate you.
We are beginning rapid national expansion and the buzz about our System is spreading like wildfire. We are here to serve and delighted to locate your remnant requests, though we are in a murky sort of period where we need our new members to sign up rapidly so as to make The System most effective as it relies on having email address’ to send requests to. So tell all of the fabricators and distributors that you know to get here and sign up, now!
Not having to purchase a full slab of stone when you only need a small piece is only the beginning of the benefits of our free membership. Whether you’re a fabricator or distributor you undoubtedly have a surplus of stone that is just sitting there collecting dust. Now you have a friend in the industry that is going to assist you in turning that already paid for, 100% pure profitable stone into CASH. Our System is not reliant on you having your inventory under control, then undertaking the posting of it online as for sale, then constantly trying to keep it current on the site. Plus, you already know that your chances of a bid being rewarded are greater if you can locate a rem, in addition to the fact that you are acting Green by recycling left over pieces of stone. Imagine technology affording you one single place to instantly issue a remnant search from the comfort of your desk chair, 24hrs a day 7 days a week, that will automatically contact all of the same fabricators that you would have spent the next hour or two calling, commonly with an uncomfortable feeling about approaching your competition while they salt the wound by subtly reminding you they’re doing you a big favor, then waiting for the responses. What is your time worth? You should seriously do an evaluation of your time and how every minute that you’re spending trying to locate a rem outside of your own supply adds up and takes away from the actual money producing work that you should be doing, so you’re losing twice! Isn’t it clear that our finder’s fee automatically included in the total cost to the buyer is well worth having a single source to go to? Don’t have time during your hectic day to issue a search? Do it tonight so the request is sitting on their desk tomorrow morning when they get to work.
We are currently focused on national expansion throughout the U.S. and Canada but are additionally confident of GLOBAL DOMINATION of the WORM (Worldwide Organized Remnant Marketplace)!
We are also working on many other facets of The System including a boss “truck & laptop” franchise turnkey package if you’re interested in owning a piece of history. Furthermore we are implementing inventory software that will automatically upload your changes throughout the week of daily operation. For those that do in fact already track their inventory, we will soon have an area for you to post your pieces for prospective buyers to peruse. There are other items too yet in the For Classified Eyes Only stages but hold on to your hats ‘cause we’ve created “the new way to buy stone” and we’ve only just begun!
Thank you again for joining, we’re looking forward to serving you for many years to come.
All the best,
Founder / Finder
