    How Turner Can Improve It's Marketing

    I'm sure DT would sell more bikes if he targeted his market segment better, like Santa Cruz for example. These bikes rarely get ridden anyway. Just a thought..

    I think they should hire Dusty. Then not only can he teach DT how to build a decent bike but he can get a head start on hating it.

    DT, are you interested in some marketing power? Put your product between the legs of these fine ladies:

    Is now a good time to paste in my yearly disclamier about how I don't hate DT or his bike designs?

    Dusty, you have a way of posting that somehow makes people forget that you are just trolling for reactions. You do it very well. Bravo.

    Wouldn't that be swell if demand for Turners increased? I want more waiting group support threads.

    best marketing

    Turner's best marketing is the forum itself... companies stirve for what the forum creates, people talking about the brand and recomending it by word of mouth -- It's the most trusted form of advertisement.

    It's all in the subtleties, and lack of smilies. Oh ya, and the fact that everything I say is based in pure truth. I don't try to sell my opionion to anyone, it's all fact.

    Damn, did I do it again?

    Honestly, one of the things I love most about Turner is a LACK of marketing......DT and the guys let their products speak for themselves. If there's one thing I hate, it's over-hyped, over-marketed products. If it's so great, people will ride it, spread the word, and before you know it you will have a huge demographic of riders on your products, which is exactly what Turner does.





    However, 1/2 naked chicks never hurt anything.

    Consistency in message would help

    But the girls might up the fun factor. The Marzocchi approach.
