Portland, ME (PRWEB) November 26, 2013
While it’s easy for brick-and-mortar businesses to partake in community-driven, small-business sales like Small Business Saturday, it’s not quite as simple for online businesses during the start of the holiday season. Online lobster distributor, GetMaineLobster.com, finds that the marketing efforts of small online businesses are often masked by the discounted offerings of large chains. And, even more so, such online retailers have difficulty in emphasizing that their business is a small one.
Despite the hurdles, in order to recognize the start of the holidays, GetMaineLobster.com will offer limited time deals on its lobster tails, seafood dishes, and steaks with its Black Friday and Cyber Monday specials.
The deals will include:
- 70% off 5- to 6-ounce Lobster Tails ($149, originally $499),
- 70% off Maine Tail & Chowder Feast ($69, originally $231),
- 70% off 24 Maine Lobster Cakes ($62, originally $209.99),
- Buy one, get one free: Live Maine Lobster, Maine Lobster Tails, Surf & Turf, or Gift Certificates,
- Buy now, ship when you’re ready for up to one year.
While GetMaineLobster.com plans to offer deeply discounted holiday gift ideas, the locally owned business, operating out of Portland, Maine, still vies for its share of the projected consumer holiday purchases.
“Competing with the big retailers is a lesson in futility,” said Mark Murrell, founder and owner of GetMaineLobster.com. “So, we have to be creative in what we offer to our customers and find unique ways to communicate to them, like with our Cyber Monday deals, so that they can benefit just as much from savings — if not more — by shopping with the small guys like us.”
The lobster lovers encourage shoppers to shy away from the mass consumption of electronic products and toys that most won’t use or will discard as time passes by. Instead, GetMaineLobster.com suggests gifting a loved one with a homemade meal from the site’s holiday recipe index for a gift that can be consumed, but with the senses.
GetMaineLobster.com ships fresh, Maine lobsters caught from the shores of mid-coast Maine directly to almost any doorstep in the country. Additionally, all live lobsters are shipped fresh, and never frozen, which makes them ideal gifts for entertaining — or just indulging in — during the upcoming holidays.
