Chocolate and guns
Shameless plug ahead…but it is gun related
I started a healthy chocolate business. It is network marketing, which I normally eschew, but it was chocolate and I couldn’t resist.
One of the things I needed was an easy to remember website that I could sent people to to check out the business. Since it is a powerful, healthy chocolate, I picked www.00chocolate.com. Amazingly the site was available.
So I would somehow steer the conversation to chocolate (truly, not hard) and would tell the person about the business. The conversation would go something like this:
Me: blah, blah, blah….let me give you a website to go to where you can check it out.
Me: Do you shoot guns?
(At this point it really doesn’t matter what they say, but it tells me where they are pertaining to guns.)
Me: You have heard of 00 buck shotgun shells, right. (Regardless of their gun predilection, they most likely have heard of 00 buck shot)
Me: Well, this is 00 Chocolate. www.00chocolate.com
Now they have a website they can remember (I do have to tell them it is zero, zero, not double ought, duh) and I don’t have to write it down.
From these conversations, I have met cops, ex-military and even liberals who shoot. This opened up a whole new avenue of discussing guns in an innocuous way.

Darn it, you made me hungry with your site..........
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

Always remember, friends don't let friends eat chocolate, alone.

Sounds like you have the 'catch phrases', now you need the catchy packaging...and quality chocolate, of course.
I wish you well...

You got me. Now, just as I was about to shut the 'puter down and get to bed, all I can think of is pushing mega calories across my lips.

I wonder how many would relate more to 'the only chocolate James Bond would consider...00chocolate'. Might be another route for the ones who wet themselves at the mention of a gun.

Sounds like a great marketing idea to me. Maybe it will bring more women to shooting.

So you got into selling chocolate on a website to make money or attract women? What's the real story?
Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
