Do you want to engage consumers, and boost archery and bowhunting participation while growing your business? The ATA’s Archery 360 and Bowhunting 360 platforms can help!
Archery 360 and Bowhunting 360 are information-and-education websites, as well as social-media accounts on Facebook and Instagram. ATA created these websites to attract and inspire beginning archers and bowhunters. The sites also help retain archers and bowhunters while reactivating former participants.
The ATA created these programs to help retailers like you strengthen your online presence and improve business. Retailers have three ways to take advantage of these programs:

The ATA’s 360 sites feature written and visual content for consumers seeking news and industry-related information; as well as how-to, lifestyle, technology and entertainment pieces about archery or bowhunting.

You’ll engage your audience and grow your business by making your store a go-to source for information, equipment and expertise.

Engage Your Social Followers
In fact, the ATA encourages its members to post 360 content on their social accounts, too. Both brands have social-media pages that publish content regularly. You’re free to share this content on your pages to engage your social-media followers and update them on your store. This free ATA service lets you supplement your content instead of trying to create everything yourself.
Plus, the ATA “promotes” Archery 360 and Bowhunting 360 content on social media. Promoted posts are paid advertising that targets specific audiences to extend the program’s reach and attract more customers. The ATA’s promoted posts appear on Facebook, which helps both platforms inspire people to like, share and comment on their posts, and drive customers to you with the ATA store locator.

Send Customers to Your Store
Speaking of content, the ATA’s store locator – a software tool that steers customers to your store year-round for lessons and new equipment – is strategically linked in content throughout ATA’s 360 sites and social-media platforms. The store locator helps customers use their computers or mobile devices to find nearby archery stores, sending customers your way.
But remember: The store locator only works if your store’s information is up to date in the ATA’s database. Confirm or update your shop’s contact information in the member login portal on the ATA website. That quick check ensures customers find you with the store locator. Or call the ATA business and membership office toll-free at (866) 266-2776 for assistance or more information.
