One of the best things to do for your hunting business is to ask questions of…guess who?

I know, I know. It seems obvious, but I for one forget to do it as often as I should. How often do you ask your customers or potential customers, questions about what they’re looking for? What their feeling? What they would like to see from a hunting outfitter, blog, or Website?
I believe that open-ended questions on the Web are the best for forming meaningful conversations and connections.
Here are a few example questions (for you to build from) when you visit the places on the Web hunters frequent.
On a Hunting Forum
First, learn the accepted rules of forum conduct and then begin interacting with the members by asking questions that will add value to their experience and that are related to your business (in that priority order).
What are your experiences (good or bad) with an outfitter/guide?
Do you have any thoughts on what might be wrong with hunting Websites?
What are some thoughts you have on successful hunting business marketing? (Wink, wink – I’d ask this one)
In the Comments on a Blog Post
For hunters that have blogs to document their love for hunting, their hunting experiences and the like, commenting on their posts is a great way to make a connection.
What are your suggestions for applying this technique to [insert your hunting niche]?
What would you change about your hunting story if you could?
What would you recommend for a newcomer [or modest or expert] for further reading on this subject? (A question I’d love to answer on this blog).
Twitter is great for asking questions of your hunter followers (once you have enough – and it doesn’t take as many as you’d think if you ask great questions – to get valuable feedback).
Has anyone else gotten into a tree stand while hunting only to find out there is a branch in your draw zone? How can you fix that on the fly?
Have you ever been in a hunting situation where better equipment could have made a difference?
Does anyone have any hunting equipment ideas or needs?
Remember to ask questions that will add value to your reader’s life experience and that will prove valuable for your business (in that order).
