Perfect Client
We have 3 targets- (1) Businesses that want to attract new and repeat business, to increase their market share and create greater product awareness through branding with Free advertising, (2) Non-Profit Organizations (schools, sports teams, youth groups, churches, etc.) who want a great and easy way to raise thousands of dollars, and (3) Consumers who would like to save money on things they do/purchase every day, like dining, entertainment, travel, professional services, retail, and local attractions as well as save money when vacationing thruout the US.
Target Market(s)
Business Owners, Non-Profit Organizations, and Consumers in the Greater Houston area from Conroe to Galveston, Sealy to Baytown.
Urgent Needs and Compelling Desires of Target Market(s)
For businesses wanting to take advantage of this Free Advertising opportunity, you need to sign up by March12th to insure your business is listed on our first set of brochures to be distributed in the Houston area.
We will officially launch the fundraising opportunity in Mid-March. Cards will be available for purchase beginning at that time.
Opportunities said Target Market(s) would love to invest in
Non-Profit organizations (large or small) can sign up to sell The VIP Card. No upfront costs, they make 50% profit selling a product people WANT to buy. The cards are good for 1 year and sell for $20. Consumers can use the cards over and over saving money on things they do everyday. Business owners also can support their favorite charity by selling The VIP Card at their place of business (this is NOT required, just an opportunity to give back to the community, if you desire).
Benefits of investible opportunities to Target Market(s)
Since the advertising is free, this is a "No-Brainer". You help support the non-profits in the area by partnering with The VIP Card, and in return you get exposure and ideally new and repeat business from VIP Cardholders. The only cost is the discount or special you offer to VIP Cardholders.
"Other interests" (Traveling, wine, books, etc...):
Some of the well-known businesses that are partnering with The VIP Card include: Schlitterbahn,Disneyland, Costco, Six Flags, Sea World, Regal Entertainment, California Pizza, Blockbuster Video, Enterprise Rent-a-car, Denny's, to name a few.

Good day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very important to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site. Could you please get back to me on my private email( for the full details?
Have a nice day and God bless you,
