Back in the early days of Community (2010-2012) there was a whole lot of tournament vending. I would pack the Community mobile and sometimes a small trailer with tents, table, and 800+ discs, shirts, etc most weekends and hit tournaments. New England players were not used to having a vendor onsite so we had a great response and sold a great many discs. Over time, players for used to seeing us and sales cooled off. Conveniently, this happened as CommunityDiscs.com (which started in late 2011) was picking up soon after vending at AmWorlds in Rochester, NY that summer. I then became much more selective about the tournaments we vended at (as in 90+ players only). It was always about selling a lot of discs and not being sure if players knew what and where Community was.
Fast forward to 2016 and we see a CommunityDiscs.com that is approaching its 5th anniversary online, is starting to get “known” to the masses, and just launched the best darn rewards program in the industry. It is time to concentrate on promotion and the word about Community.
Dynamic Discs invited its retailers to attend the Glass Blown Open block party on Saturday evening April 30th. This was the perfect excuse to pack up the new Community mobile with our brand new Community stamped discs along with tons of Community shirts, towels, minis, pencils, and promo cards with steep discount codes on them. This time it is all about meeting customers and driving new players to CommunityDiscs.com. I hope you will visit me in Emporia, play some games, and go home with some free Community swag. I will have prize drawings each hour so come on by!
