Benefits of Membership Members can shop by their dietary requirements and choose shelf-stable packaged goods, frozen and fresh grocery items-including meats, fish, dairy, breads and freshly harvested organic produce. Orders are shipped FREE to the members' door at home or work with minimum orders. (See member submitted video below). GPDB is positioned to become the next online giant, expecting early stage growth that is comparable to that of COSTCO, AMAZON and other online niche merchandisers.
Market Size: Proven Trends Driven by consumer choice, the U.S. organic industry, alone, grew by 9.5% in 2011 to reach $31.5 billion in sales. (Source: the Organic Trade Association's (OTA's) 2012 Organic Industry Survey.) The growth in consumer demand in the organic food sector contrasts sharply with the less than one percent annual growth in the $630 billion U.S. traditional food market. Increasing popularity of "clean" foods and consistent growth, annually, in consumer purchases of those foods over the past decade suggest that demand will continue to increase, sharply.
56 million U.S. consumers' demand for healthy foods is expected to grow 18% annually, from $150 billion in 2013 to one-half trillion dollars, by the end of this decade. Online shopping is forecasted to exceed $300 billion annually by 2015. Membership Clubs like COSTCO, Sam's Club and BJ's have over 100 million adult members. GPDB is positioned at the center of these megatrends. There is no question that the marketplace will continue to embrace the ONLY online buying club for organic and non-GMO natural foods. GPDB has proven it can acquire membership rapidly from among the more than 16 million frequent consumers of organic and non-GMO natural foods.
Sales Results GPDB started shipping, nationally, on December 22nd, 2011. Registered membership is over 17,600 (over 3,000 paid). Sales in January 2013 were over $413,000, up by 45% over December 2012 sales. The average member spends $121 per order. But as the Company expands its product line sales are expected to reach approximately $2,000 per year, per member.
Marketing Strategy The company has formed many strategic marketing alliances with organizations such as: The Organic Consumers Association, Natural News, The Institute for Responsible Technology, The Hippocrates Institute, The National Health and Wellness Club, Natural Solutions Foundation, Mission Possible Group, MaryJane's Farm and others. These alliances, combined, have reach to more than 5 million consumers who are aligned with GPDB's mission. They are using their influence to promote their constituents to Green PolkaDot Box.
GPDB used a proprietary, word-of-mouth incentive marketing plan called PolkaDot Rewards to encourage members and affinity partners to promote and attract new membership, averaging monthly growth rate of 10% compounded. Effective marketing methods, including a social marketing platform Member Builder, direct-response advertising, and search engine optimization (SEO) are increasing website traffic and membership conversions accelerated growth rate. Company management is projecting the rate of growth in membership and sales to increase to more than 21% per month, compounded.
