Nathan's book series. Marketing and promotions team?

Hey Riflemen. I've been thinking of ways to help promote Nathan's wealth of literature to the rest of shooting lands population and beyond. We've all gained so much from all of the knowledge and advice from finding this site? So who's happy to help spread the word. If you are a member of other shooting forums and group's as you see questions asked about problems and issues with those members rifles are you happy to say that the answers to your issues can be found in the books and that there's a series of knowledge based informative books available to help them out and learn about your rifles care, maintenance, and how to get better groups or find out what could be causing poor grouping? It's a great way to say thanks and help a great bloke and his family get exposure to the market. If we all drop the word and promote our friends massive digest of knowledge leaving crumbs to lead wanting knowledge seekers to the source of "Terminal ballistics" enlightenment. Hopefully our groups numbers can help increase Nathan's exposure to the community that we all know is out there keenly wanting to learn more about this topic?
How say you all?
Knowledge from a thousand paper cuts? Start talking about the books on line and let people know about them!
I remember what my Grandfather used to tell us. "If there's lead in the air. then there's hope". And so they all laid on their backs in the muddy trench and fired up at the dive bomber! One hundred 303s all shooting at 1 plane ! I bet he wondered what had hit him?

Think people get sick of me chewing their ears off about TBR services & products, heheheeheheee

Tell anyone who will listen Warwick and some that won’t!
One of our RO's at the local range made sure l said thanks to Nathan on my trip over for helping him set up some beautiful shooters after l got him onto the books etc.

I believe Nathan will be doing some promotions in the near future, seminars and alike!

Re: Nathan's book series. Marketing and promotions team?
I think thats a very good idea. I have also spoken with as many people as would listen, though not having the most amount of luck..

If any promotional materials are available I would be happy to print some and drop it off at a few of my local gun stores?

I am also not entirely horrible at some of the design software so wouldn't mind helping a bit if this kind of material does not exist. I have no idea if it would have any influence but maybe worth a try?

Cunning bugger, slipped this one under the radar and I missed it when checking posts, just found it now, several days later.

Anyway, thanks for thinking of us, we really appreciate it.

I have used Twitter to spread the word. Easy way to do it in any social media outlet is to use hashtags. Like: #longrangehunting #nathanfoster #holdthatforend etc etc. any word becomes a searchable hashtag by simply putting a # at the start of the word.

If you search for the a hashtag in google it will find the tags in any social media form that the tag has been used.

I just posted it on my web site

35,000 followers just got an email with links to his store and I hope they burn up his order page

I am amazed this much information is compiled in one place. I'm telling everybody.

I reckon it'd help a lot if Nathan had an instagram account. Then the hastag really works.

Re: Nathan's book series. Marketing and promotions team?
Also if I'm being a bit of a bastard I'd ask what is the purpose of this site???
To me it should be about selling books and products?

It looks like it's about giving away free information and free research results???

Free stuff is front and top of the home page, books are at the bottom of the page.
Thats great if you want to give stuff away for free, but not great for selling amazing books.

I'd also say that Nathan might consider allowing his endorsement to be printed on factory loads. Whatever factory load is best in that calibre it'd be very useful for federal,norma or hornady to be able to say "Terminal ballistics.com shows this is the best .308 for medium game out to 600yards"
a deal like that could drive a ton of traffic here?

Another thought is that front and centre here you could offer tricked out Tikka/Rem/some kiwi action with Percision Platform stocks, True Flite barrells

Medium range medium game set up
Medium range tough game set up
Medium range bench set up

Long range medium game
Long range tough game
Long range bench

Or else get a teenage commercial manager to drive this site

But anyone of a sensitive disposition/Nathan must never look on instagram unless they want to cry

Soon we will be told we must not touch the gun at all. Not even to pull the trigger. We just have to visualise the shot. Then make a bang noise with your mouth. Aftrewards an ex-special forces operator will tell you how to make the noise better if you take his $10,000 course.

Re: Nathan's book series. Marketing and promotions team?
Andrew- I had a run-in with one of those "instructors". A puppet to the dollar, every one of them. OK, maybe not all of them, but that particular one, for sure. Loathsome.

Re: Nathan's book series. Marketing and promotions team?
If it's new then it must be better right? And these guys have capitalised on the new. Each one promising secret wisdom. I have seen some of the adverts and the way people talk about them. Each one has more special forces experience than the next. It does seem to be the key that sells in shooting. Ex army or ex sniper or ex commando.

Not that those guys have no skills or real world experience but it does appear to be very trendy.

One site I saw bragged about how all their instructors were ex snipers but the course was no place for anyone wanting to be a sniper and that any wanna snipers would be referred to the police.

Re: Nathan's book series. Marketing and promotions team?
Hi all.
I too am keen to help out and have had a project that I have been working on for a number of years off and on that I would love to see go forward.
Nathan is aware of it and I have end had an elancer develop a prototype. I have a data model, the prototype, and the (crappy) code. This project would vest solely in TerminalBallistic research and any moneytisation of it would be all for nathan and family.
Before any work was done we would get Nathans approval.
So what do i need?
A developer to help me get the code to a standard where we can hand this to the hosting team that Nathan uses. Any code would need to be either owned by TBR OR issued as a lifetime license for use to TBR.
Clearly I arent giving too much away here in terms of the idea - I would hate for anyone to steal Nathans hard work.
This project would be a tool for the community here to use, and contribute to - so everyone can get involved once its up.
So anyone out there keen?
Thanks
Kelvin

Hey Kelvin,
There are sites where you can offer up a projet like that and developers bid on it and you accept best price.
If you did that maybe we could look to crowdfund the costs from here or via a sponsor? Bryan

Re: Nathan's book series. Marketing and promotions team?
Thanks Bryan - that's the route I took last time (paid for by myself). However even though I am a solution architect (ok probably a failed one judging by this admission) it was hard to guide the dev in the right way without being fairly knowledgeable in the actual code. I knew the outcome needed – it was just really hard to drive the guy to that outcome. The result was a working proof of concept – but even I could tell that what was delivered was rubbish under the hood.
So the problem is getting lucky with the dev on an elance or a gig platform, or getting someone knowledgeable to run them, or paying market rates for some good guys locally (the firm I work for has over 1000 developers most of those that I work with in my projects I know would deliver good stuff – but I am trying to do this on the cheap 😊). I would guess at market rates in NZ this would be a project of between 20 and 40k.
Anyway - no problem if there are no takers - I'll plod along under the covers, and will eventually get a beta up there.
