Whitetails Unlimited’s Membership Appreciation Giveaway Ready to Roll in 2010
Popular giveaway program will distribute $100,000 in merchandise, while sponsors directly reach their customers.
Wisconsin –-(AmmoLand.com)- Whitetails Unlimited’s popular Membership Appreciation Giveaway is ready to enter its second full year in 2010, and both WTU members and industry partners continue to appreciate the innovative program.
“When it comes to traditional membership benefits, this program is second to none,” said WTU President Jeff Schinkten. “Our industry partners are seeing their products marketed directly to our members in a variety of ways, and our members are winning with great products as a membership benefit. This is the definition of ‘Win-Win.’”
WTU Executive Director Pete Gerl noted that since virtually 100 percent of WTU members hunt deer, this program is an easy way for companies to reach passionate deer hunters.
“We work with all our sponsoring companies to make sure they can get their message in front of all of our members,” said Gerl. “We promote the program and sponsors continually on our website and in every issue of our magazine, and we can tailor other marketing campaigns to match the level of support we receive.”
“We’ve received awesome support from a wide range of outdoor companies, and we’re always excited to talk to businesses who are looking for innovative and imaginative marketing opportunities. Our members hunt deer, but they also hunt other game, fish, and enjoy the outdoors in other ways. Our members are the exact demographic outdoor companies want to reach,” said Schinkten. “Many companies are looking at innovative ways to market their products today, and partnering with Whitetails Unlimited is a method to directly reach their customers.”
“We’ve got many of the slots filled for the first few months of 2010, but there is still room for new sponsorships,” said Gerl. “While this economy has both consumers and companies being very careful with their money, smart marketers are able to adapt to new conditions, recognize new opportunities, and be in position to benefit when the economy improves.”
The Membership Appreciation Giveaway draws five lucky winners each week (Monday – Friday) through a random computerized drawing of current WTU members. Winners’ names are posted on the WTU website, along with the prize that they’ve won. The program is promoted on the WTU website and in every issue of Whitetails Unlimited Magazine.
On the date of each drawing, current members are automatically included. Memberships can be obtained online at www.whitetailsunlimited.com, or by phone at 1-800-274-5471. The website also provides a list of the official rules for the giveaway.
