Social media has become integral in the shooting industry in the past couple of years and it is HOT HOT HOT right now!
Prior to about a year ago I never used YouTube for much more than watching cute cat videos. Okay, there was FPS Russia, but everyone loves him! Have Nice Day!
Never did I expect to be the prettiest co-host on The Shooters Mindset with some guys I didn’t even know prior to Jan ‘13! There is Anthony Cruz, Steve Durant, and most recently Ancel Robinson (Shwell) whom all reside in Florida. Dustin Pluth lives down the road from me here in the Midwest. Anthony approached me after SHOT Show last year and asked if I’d come on board and here we are almost 70 episodes deep!
If you have not heard of the show I’ll give you a brief rundown of the happenings! The show airs live on Wednesday evening at 9pm EST via Google+ and our YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/prchico520
Each week we have an industry guest, such as a competitive shooter, company representative or instructor. We learn about the past, present and future of the company and get a chance to see products up close while fielding live questions from our viewers that are asked via YouTube and Facebook. It’s almost like sending a note to customer service and not having to wait the 72 hours for a response! If the guest is a shooter or instructor we try to sneak tips and tricks out of them that you might not hear unless you are lucky enough to shoot a match with them or be a student in one of their classes.
As hosts we also take a moment to mention what is going on in our shooting careers and show off what we are in love with that week. It has been an amazing way to give support to our individual sponsors and show off the new and best of everything available.
My first show was with Julie Golob and since then we’ve had an amazing group of guests. Jerry Miculek, Taran Butler, Patrick E. Kelley, Adams Arms, Benchmade Knives, Armalite, KRISS USA, Chris Costa, BladeTech, Akai Custom Guns, Voodoo Tactical, Kyle Lamb and many others.
We have even aired a show from a 3 Gun match and plan on utilizing live feeds as we travel to SHOT show this coming January.
We are blessed that our guests and show sponsors have stepped up and offered mementos to us as a part of our weekly giveaway! Prizes have included any gear that you can imagine, training courses, ammunition, and even complete firearms!
If you or your company is interested in being a guest on the show or you have a suggestion for a guest, please send us an email at Theshootersmindset@gmail.com or visit our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/TheShootersMindset and send us a note.
We are open to show sponsorships as well and have a few options that include a show with your company, video and photo reviews and social media blasts. Contact us for more information and we would love to help spread the word about you and your company!
