WHY WE HUNT
In 2016 our founder Alena Carter and her husband took heir small business to an expo. They entered into the event with high hopes and expectations. The event promised a high volume of traffic, filled with individuals looking to support new businesses in the industry. Weeks went into preparation not to mention the expense of travel for themselves and their team. Upon arrival everything seemed fine but as the event progressed the couple and their team saw that there were 2 major issues
1. Most of the customers coming in to shop or even browse were coming in for specific brands and once they found them they pretty much left so the smaller brands missed a good chunk of the traffic. Plus the attendees had no incentive to visit more booths, and would ignore brands they were unaware of.
2. Business wasn't able to go on outside of the event, due to a large portion of inventory and the team that would typically handle the sales/shipping being at the event. Therefore sales and customer relations made at the event were all that were to be made that day.
After seeing how a new/small business could hurt from being a part of such events Alena got to work creating a solution. The hunts allow small businesses to continue with their normal everyday business while interacting with additional customers. Customers can support these businesses in many different ways, and there's no purchase necessary to participate. Each hunter has to complete 2 tasks from each business in order to submit their score. The hunters are given an incentive, the grand prize and hunt box, to actually complete these tasks (follow a page, share a post, call to inquire etc.) And so WE HUNT!
