Default The NIFL Is Growing

just got this email from the NIFL this is so funny I had to share it

New website opened to benefit companies wishing to reach Black Americans.
Website name: www.blackshoppingchannel.com. This site is to allow Small businesses to advertise and target Black Americans buyers. Any business can advertise on the site, but the target businesses will be minority and small businesses wishing to gain marketshare with other minority buyers.

The site is designed to allow any business to post its own store on the site. You set the store up and you sell your products and merchandise. It is literally a virtual- TRIP TO THE MALL? for visitors at the site. They can let their ?KEYBOARD DO THE WALKING? as they SURF every shop on the Black Shopping Channel. SHOPPERS will be spending countless hours filling their shopping cart with great sales and merchandise they cannot resist as they WANDER THROUGH YOUR STORE AT THE MALL.
Imagine who and what demographic will stop in and shop at this VIRTUAL MALL. You do not want to miss the opportunity to reach a potential customer for your merchandise.

Opportunities will be available to have your store spotlighted in the center video screen to draw still more attention to your ?Virtual Sale?

Rent for the store: $25 annual set up charge - no standard monthly charges*. The price is definitely right!
*This is our current price. We are soliciting stores to increase our inventory of stores. This price is subject to change in the future. If you already have a store, the price cannot change. Get your store today while the prices are almost nothing and keep that single low price, if you order today.
BSC charges 25% of any sale you make ans we drive traffic to the site. We work on a commission of your sales. We do not charge you monthly for the hosted store space. We only make money by helping you sell your product. Guess what ? You would be paying EBAY much more for the service we provide you for a one time $25 set up charge.

If even one customer buys your products, you have made money and so have we. Talk about reducing your overhead. For a limited time, we will allow all SHOPS to have a store at our Black Shopping Channel Virtual Mall at absolutely NO CHARGE.
Why do I want a store? I do not own a business.
You are a shopper today, Tomorrow you are a SELLER ? Everyone is a Seller. You may be having a Garage Sale or need to get rid of a few things. You are paying a one time fee of $25.00 for the space. Even if you only use it one time a year or every other year, you pay more than $25 for a listing for a Garage Sale in your local paper and you have to get up at 5:00 AM to start seeing your customers. This way, we drive the business to our Mall and you can get out of bed at 10:00 am to find your Garage Sale Items have already been SOLD and you were sleeping. You just posted pictures and we did the rest.

Best of All ? Our services are free (after your small $25 set up fee) until we help you make a sale, then we keep only 25% of the sale and pay you the rest when you ship the merchandise. You get free webspace for your store items, you can take credit cards at your sales without paying any monthly fees. The credit card fees are deducted from your sale before we send you a check for your sold items. You do not pay for a shopping cart, a hosted website, credit maintence montly fees. Look at your savings.

· This site is set up to assist Businesses in selling their products to African Americans. African Americans will purchase over $921 billion dollars of products in 2008, you need to post your store and services where they can be seen by every Buyer. This site will Target Market your products to this audience.

Even if you never wanted to own a business, You are a Seller sometimes. Get a store while it is only one fee of $25! If you use your store one time, it pays for itself.

Visit the site and decide to POST a STORE on the Site NOW.

DON’T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE MONEY!

Chapters for sports management textbooks on how NOT to run a league? Yeah, and that website is pretty horrible.

Money savings?

You pay credit card fees.
You pay a setup fee.
You pay 25% on each transaction.
And then you pay to ship it.

This is "virtually" brilliant!

We may be starting to see the likes of the ABA affiliate program. We had previously posted that Carolyn Shiver and Cleveland Gary were partners in this venture.

I was heading in a different direction with my metaphor, though I mix so many of them that you're probably right to offer a straight answer.
