In the last post, we explained the new home page design for Trapshooting Online.com. There are many new features that we’d like to detail further and help our users better understand. Those new items include: News, Shoot Calendar, Spotlight, and our Web Design services.
Where do you go for your trapshooting news? There isn’t a Fox News or CNN website that delivers the latest trapshooting focused news. The new TO News Feed helps solve that problem and will become a popular resource for all trapshooting news.
Users will be able to sort all articles based on their ATA Zone – Central, Eastern, Southern, Southwestern, or West – or combine them all together and read what’s relevant to them. We rely on information from several sources:
- Our readers can submit their own articles and stories, or
- We partner with the many gun clubs around the world. If your club hires Trapshooting Online to build your website, we automatically connect your news and events to our site. What a great way to gain exposure for your club or state association!
The new Shoot Calendar is the most user friendly and interactive shoot calendar that you’ll find on the internet!
Search by the following:
- ATA Zone
- Start and End Date
- Shoot and Club name
- City and State
Once you get your desired results, you can then sort them further and find shoot programs as well as maps/directions to the club.
Just like the News articles, we offer one of two ways for your club/association to promote your events:
- Our readers can submit their own shoot information and programs, or
- We partner with the many gun clubs around the world. If your club hires Trapshooting Online to build your website, we automatically connect your events calendar to our site. What a great way to gain exposure for your club or state association!
Everyone loves to see their name in lights! This is our way of saying “thank you” for being a part of our site, but its also a way of saying congratulations.
Individuals: If you won your first registered trophy, broke your first 100 straight or earned a punch to the back-fence, we want to know about it. We’ll feature you on our home page with a picture and short write up of your accomplishments!
Youth Teams: For those that win their state tournaments, are victorious against a rival school, or just simply have a great story to tell, we’ll feature you too on our home page! Nominations are always open and we’ll even include a link for you to accept donations.
A major part of our mission is to improve the quality of trapshooting information on the web. Our sport needs all of the help it can get when it comes to promotion and advancing our goals. A powerful way to do this is by keeping your club’s (or state association’s) website current and up to the latest Web 2.0 standards.
Every site we build becomes a part of the Trapshooting Online Network. What does this mean? All of your events and results, every news item, they will feed into our main site where shooters from around the world will learn about you. This means increased attendance and visibility in the trapshooting community!
We offer several different packages that suit the needs of youth teams, clubs, and state trapshooting associations. The cost is minimal when compared to the typical web development firms. We are trapshooters and know what you need to run a successful organization!
While these are just four of the new features, we have plenty of existing tools that are great ways of learning about trapshooting. Check out our photos, videos, forums, and classifieds sections!
