Memorial Day Weekend Update!

Posted by Ben Ashpole & Jay Olman (Creator)

Howdy Pocket Grill fans, another quick update on what we’ve been up to:

Earlier today we had our first marketing email go out, for testing purposes to see what kind of interest there is in the groups we were targeting.  We don’t have the results yet but early signs are promising. It’s a small sample of about 100 prospects, but the group itself is about 10,000 strong so we feel there’s a lot of opportunity there if approach carefully.  We’ve been reaching out to various online camping communities as well, most recently Reddit looking for feedback and opinions about the Pocket Grill and seeing what other campers think of it.  So far it’s all been pretty positive!

In addition to this we’ve reach out to a few National Parks we’ll likely work with in the future, showcasing a few of their parks in our future newsletters.  We want to find the best places around the globe for you to visit and use your Pocket Grill.

As always we’re very appreciative of everyone’s continued support and thank you very much to those who became our fans, subscribed to the newsletter, followed us on Twitter and of course purchased a grill in our last update.  You have our thanks and we will continue working hard to make this dream a reality.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend, hope you guys get a chance to go camping over it.

 

Happy Grilling,

-Ross Johnson
