Establishing an adventure club in your local area is an exciting way tocapitalize on the growing popularity of adventure trips, activities andadventure sports in general. The business concept is to start anadventure club offering members discounts on sporting events, adventureholidays, sports equipment and sporting activities.
The hook is there’sno fee for a membership, as business revenues are earned from companieswho wish to advertise in your discount directory and on the club’swebsite. You will have little resistance from business owners youapproach for advertising sales, providing you have a captive marketthat they want exposure to.
Your customers will be anyone who is into the outdoors and enjoysthrill-seeking activities. The fastest way to get members in the club,even though the memberships are free, is to set up a display booth atan outdoor recreation trade show for a week.
This is the target marketyou want and there should be no problems acquiring a few thousand newmembers from a busy recreation trade show.
