To many it means professional. To the industry it’s either professional or promotional and usually both. We all know those guys/gals who hold up the products in pics and say this got the job done. Really?! Does that sell?!
Here at EvoOutdoors we have personally struggled with the term and its impact. Not only on the current hunters but our future generation. Many get caught up in wanting to get paid to hunt or getting free gear from sponsors. Though very, very few do! It then becomes a blasting all over social media which in turn does exactly the opposite of what the genuine intentions are, and most of the time it comes across as “See what I have and you don’t”.
Product should speak for itself. If it fits right and performs well in the field then you tell a buddy. That is what we are after. A conversation between friends, family, workers, or hunters about a product you love and trust. #HonestPromotion
Let the product and customer service speak! Maybe we’re old fashion, but good old word of mouth you can trust, and it seems to be a thing of the past. Could we call ourselves #Vintage and be hip with the new generation?
To us our ProStaff means much more. They are our partners, our team, professional people, hunters, volunteers and most of all honest hardworking people.We have created a team of individuals we believe in. Not because they are professional or promotional but because they are good people who love to hunt and love getting involved in their community. Each partner offers something different to our team and we value even the smallest contributions. Yes they are encouraged to promote the product we carry that they believe in. #HonestPromotion Yes, they receive a discount to purchase gear they wish to support, and yes they are encouraged to share it on social media if its meets their standards of a great product. Our partners are hunters who share in our vision of offering quality products with quality customer service. They see the bigger picture than just receiving a discount on products. They are in a position to set an example, to do something bigger, to give back.
After our first year down we are lucky to have gained so much support. A true thank you goes out to those supporters and our amazing ProStaff. We couldn’t do it with out you and our Team!
Here’s to being #Vintage
