Acorns are falling, bucks are rutting, and the air is getting crisper every day. Before you know it, you’ll be eating leftover turkey sandwiches while preparing for Small Business Saturday. Don’t you wish there was an online tool to drive customers to your store, and help you grow your customer base during the holidays?
Great news: That tool is already here, and it’s available to you because you belong to the Archery Trade Association. As an ATA member, your archery store can reap the benefits.
The ATA launched Archery 360 and Bowhunting 360 as content websites and social-media communities in 2013 and 2016, respectively. These platforms spark interest in archery and bowhunting, and equip beginners with resources to try archery and bowhunting right away. Those resources include a store locator with information about your archery shop.
Make sure your shop information is up to date before the holidays so we can steer customers to your archery store. Click here to visit the store locator, or follow the steps below.
2. The store locator uses your computer or mobile-device settings to auto-locate you.
3. If your location is incorrect, click “use current location,” or manually type your location into the dialogue box circled in the image below.
4. Find your store among the listings. Ensure the website, store hours, phone number, email address and physical address are all accurate.
