In the one featuring “J.B,” do you notice there is only one round of ammunition in the ad? Mostly, there’s J.B. waiting. You read the ad. And, somehow, you like J.B. You like him because he loves what he’s doing. And, he can’t wait to get to what he loves. You read the ad again. Now, you want to meet J.B. Since you’re not likely to fly to South Dakota to do that, you, instead, buy a box of ammunition. Yep, very effective ad. It’s the same with the other ads in the series, all featuring dedicated Black Hills Ammunition employees. The ads complement the company’s 2011 catalog, with Jeff Hoffman, company president, on the cover. Inside you meet LaVerne, AJ, Judy, Della and others. Visit www.black-hills.com.
