New gun shop in Tewksbury to promote Appleseed!
« on: February 20, 2013, 11:32:52 PM »
I met the guys at New England Shooters Warehouse a few weeks back during a Basic Pistol class.
( http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=33860.0 )
The owners have agreed to display and hand out tri-folds/targets to the customers. They were VERY interested in Appleseed and were more than happy to take some tri-folds and targets I had left from the last shoot.
The shop opens in a couple of days. Check 'em out!

Nicely Done! 

Be sure to maintain this positive relationship.  I would go so far as to offer cross-promotion opportunities; they are displaying our promo materials, so maybe have the local shoots carry their business cards or fliers? 

What about a FB page?  Have them "like" our page, and we'll do the same?

Have they been to a shoot?  If not, offer it to them pro bono.  Would certainly be worth it, as they are in a prime location for proselytizing about Appleseed.

Simply put, build a positive relationship with these folks and maintain it.

I will continue to try to build a friendship with this dealer, who may also planning to open a shooting facility nearby in New Hampshire. The owner also expressed interest in attending a Appleseed shoot himself in the future. This could be a very positive relationship to get people to Appleseeds in the area.
