Iím considering expanding my business to begin selling bows. I have a specific vision and market that Iíll be targeting. I have a website with storefront, an existing customer base, and a large e-mail marketing list. If things go well, I also plan to establish a much better web presence
Hereís the problemÖI am, at best, a mediocre bow builder.
Iím looking for someone to work with me on a couple of bow designs and to build both stock and custom bows that Iíll sell under my brand. I can share my vision/business plan with those who are serious about partnering.
This is a great opportunity for someone with the skill and capacity to consistently build high-quality bows on demand, but doesnít want to deal with the hassles of running a retail business, or for an existing commercial bowyer who has capacity to build an extra line of bows to increase sales.
Iím willing to consider bowyers in any region, but would really like to find someone within a six hour drive of upstate NY.
Iíve been involved with traditional archery for more than 25 years and know lots of bowyers. I have two bowyers who are interested in this opportunity, but Iím keeping my options open to make sure we have the right fit. Iím also willing to work with more than one bowyeróa little diversity could be good.
