ATA staff will attend the NABA Trade Show to discuss ATA’s member services, and demonstrate ATA ePRO and website development services. ATA ePRO is a comprehensive software program designed by archery shops, for archery shops. By investing in this software, archery shops can streamline inventory-management chores, improve customer service and incorporate online signups for range time.
Websites are a must-have for archery retailers. By working with Footsteps Marketing, ATA members have access to website designs that are custom-made for archery shops. Discover how to improve your website and get customers in your door.
“Having ATA as a part of our show introduces our dealers to the different services ATA offers our dealer-members,” said Gary Kinard, NABA president and ATA Board member. “ATA can help our members promote and run a better business.”
Attendees can also talk to ATA staff about the Retail Growth Initiative and ATA Connect, a new online platform that brings retailers together to discuss industry issues in a safe setting. “We hope to get more dealers involved with ATA Connect,” Kinard said. “It’s a great forum for businesses that have questions, and we need more dealers to get involved.”
