Weekend Firearms Retailer Workshop
About the Course
Developed to inform and assist the entrepreneur, this weekend workshop is an essential primer on how the retail firearms industry works, small business concepts and practices specifically applied to the firearms industry, how to assess your market and then reach them (along with real tools and resources to do so, not just vague ideas). You'll learn ways to raise your business profile in your community, how to use resources more effectively, and determine successful strategies to improve your business' bottom line.
Class participants will receive a packet with documents, forms, checklists and other materials on operating and marketing a firearms business. The course presentation is paced to prepare the participant to immediately apply these lessons to starting or improving your business upon their return home.
