In Topic: Can you guys help me out? Survey About Firearms Instruction

19 October 2016 - 06:52 PM

Hey, so I've closed the survey, thanks for everyone who replied to it, I have chosen a name for the site, and that will be Practical Firearms Training. I am working on it right now and will preview it to you guys as soon as my graphics designer friend does a preliminary logo that I can use. Right now there are too many place-holders, lol. Thanks again for all of the input. Don't feel bad if the one I chose wasn't the one you picked, every response helped me in not only choosing a name but also in the content of my site as well.

Thanks again. :-)

Break it down to the "choices" please. I'm curious with the results.

Well, basically almost all of the people who have an interest but are not super experienced tend to like the ones with "Practical" in the name, while almost all of the people who identified themselves as other instructors preferred the ones with "Real-World" in the name...

Thanks to you and everyone else who have done this survey. It really has been eye-opening, I can't say that enough. I'm really glad I did this.

One REALLY interesting thing/trend I've noticed, and I want you guys to weigh in on this here. One of my questions asked about firearms experienced. I've noticed that for some reason, people who stated they are highly experienced or that they are already instructors (mainly those who are already instructors) would gravitate toward one certain naming theme. While those who expressed that they are interested but not highly experienced all seemed to gravitate toward the other...

So here is my dilemma. On the one hand, I should probably listen to those who are not yet trained, since they would be a better representation of my potential clients. On the other hand, an already experienced firearms instructor might know a thing or two about the industry...

So guys, what do you think. I'm thinking about trying to find a way to combine the two, like make the page name the one the less experienced people like more and then in the descriptions or objectives of my services would be described using the language favored by other instructors? What do you guys think? All input would be highly appreciated. :-)
