Recently, we were blessed to be introduced to Steve and Jen MacBride, a young married couple and co-owner/operators of The Archer’s Edge (TAE) in Oakdale, PA.
We assisted in their Grand Opening this past Saturday on National Hunting and Fishing Day.
Check out this news segment of The Archer’s Edge featuring Steve and reporter Kelly Frey of Pittsburgh’s WTAE-TV (ABC affiliate) which will give you a good feel of the place.
Pretty good priceless PR for rookies – we’re so proud of them.
Proud because they deserve it. Proud because they “bring it.”
I’ve only known the MacBride’s for a few weeks, but I was impressed by them from the start and their desire to do great things.
I’m always surprised and saddened to visit businesses that simply just go along with the flow doing mediocre work and have no processes in place to “WOW” you. It’s all so boring, average, mediocre, dangerous and unnecessary.
Steve and Jen WOW you. Here are a few ways they WOW me.
- They have a ton of enthusiasm and passion for their new business, because they love archery and their enthusiasm is contagious
- They’re resilient because of their love of archery. They experienced a boatload of unfortunate and unforeseen challenges prior to launch, but their passion overrode all of them
- They “bring it” – enthusiasm, attention to detail, passion, excellence to their work
- Their goal is to be THE best archery center in Pittsburgh – not one of the best
I’m not a hunter and our business with TAE will not finance my retirement, but I’m a HUGE fan. Sure we’ve helped them a bit along the way with their PR and Marketing and will continue to offer our services. However, because their aim is to be the best (and they have plans to be), their future looks to b a bright one. We’re big fans and we will bust our tails to help them achieve their goals.
Great clients like the MacBrides make great marketing firms like us (we’ve got their back now) and when you build that kind of relationship everyone wins!
Always aim high!
