USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Can you believe the Conceal And Carry Network is entering our 6th year? What started as a dream in early 2013, has finally evolved into one of America’s best firearms industry information websites.
Just six months ago we undertook a complete upgrade. Our new and improved website now has even more social media share options built into every listing. If you own a firearm related business, we are one of the most affordable sites to advertise your product and services.
Over the years we have had the blessing of making a lot of new friends in the firearms industry as we help them advertise their business for as low as $100 a year. I owe a particular level of thanks to Kelly McMillan of McMillan Fiberglass Stocks as he was the first significant account that signed up with us literally out of the gate. Kelly is still advertising with us today, and you can see his company’s presence all over our site and on our social media channels.
What I have found to be right in this industry is the vast majority of families involved in the firearms industry are super knowledgeable regarding their products and services. They even do a great job of selling against their closest competition. What they are lacking is the money it usually takes to advertise their product to the masses. The average pay-per-click ad campaign cost around $1 and banner ad advertising on the significant firearms sites can easily cost your company $1000’s a month. If you have a brick and mortar store, then radio advertising is an option, but it can cost you $200-$5000 a week depending on your location. TV ads are just too expensive for smaller companies to afford.
What is the solution? The Conceal and Carry Network at www.concealncarry.net where our Platinum Business Listings start at $100 a year. Our best custom package costs $750 a year and includes every premium option on our site and social media marketing as well. Our Twitter social media account is still above 30,000 followers even with the shadow-banning associated with Twitter. That is just under half the size of our friends here at Ammoland.
Please stop here for just a second and be sure show your support and follow @AmmoLand and us at @ConcealNCarryNt as this is the only way we can combat Twitter’s attempt to silence conservative viewpoints.
If you are a gun lover like me, then you are spending lots of time searching the web and social media for the latest bargains. Just this week I decided to open up a few more FREE options on our site, and I need your help getting the word out. You can now place FREE classifieds to Sell or Trade Used Guns on our website.
Everyone is invited to set up a FREE account on our site to list used guns and accessories via our FREE CLASSIFIED Listings. We also recommend that you set up a FREE Forum post under the same topic. This allows for easy interactions with interested buyers across the country. When you get a buyer, our site also offers a search engine to help you locate the closest FFL Dealer to help process the transaction. On our home page, www.concealncarry.net simply enter “FFL Dealer” in the search box and enter your “Zip Code” in the location box then click on search. We have everything a visitor needs on our site to make this the easiest process possible. Please share this post with everyone you know that loves guns. Help us get the word out about this new opportunity.

Based simply on results this same Ad on a PPC campaign would have cost a company $359 to over $700.
NRA Convention in Dallas – In March of this year, my wife and I attended the NRA Convention in Dallas. During those three days, we made 28 product videos with the exhibitors at this event. We share this experience in another article on AmmoLand News. We had a blast and allowed our viewers to join in our fun by uploading these videos to YouTube.
