Q&A with Peter Askew


What do people really dig about your product/services?:

One aspect folks really enjoy about the dude ranch vacation industry is the amount of activities guests can enjoy during a visit - from horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, swimming, bonfires, hayrides, and in some locations even trap/skeet, spa visits, & river rafting!

I can't leave out the scenery, though.. Most ranches are nestled in remote areas where the surrounding scenery can take your breath away, and really helps visitors relax during a vacation stay.

Because of this, dude ranch vacations have often been described as 'Summer Camp for Adults' : )

Who are the awesome people behind the curtain at your company/project and what do they do?:

I guess you'd call me the jack-of-all trades here, as I'm the webmaster and pull all the levers behind the scenes.

Additionally, though, I spend a good bit of my time helping spread the word for the dude ranch vacation industry, and help educate those who might not understand how much the industry has evolved over the years into an amazing group & family vacation destination.

Why/How do you use stickers as a marketing or outreach tactic?: 

We use stickers as a marketing & outreach tactic because we appreciate their tangible aspects. We're a digital company, and our product is information, so the more we can connect, tangibly, with our current & potential customers, the better.

What advice would you give to a company thinking about using stickers as a marketing tactic to wow their fans. What has worked for you, what hasn’t, etc?: 

We found that stickers helped further establish our brand and solidified our position within our industry.

And from a return-on-investment standpoint, one of the best bangs-for-our-buck..

List some ways that fans can support your brand to encourage growth apart from buying your product or service?:

Other ways that fans can help support Us? By spreading the word about the dude ranch vacation industry!

Find the Fish: Alaska Guide List

Alaska Guide List

If you want to create magical stickers, you've got to start with some strong artwork. The expertly illustrated artwork on the license plate stickers we recently printed for AlaskaGuideList.com is proof in point. It absolutely jumps off the page with an awesome three dimensional effect.

It's easy to see why digitally printed license plate stickers are so popular these days. A methodical approach to semi-transparent shadows and highlights in Adobe Illustrator (or your tool of choice) can quickly impart that all-important 3D look.

AlaskaGuideList.com will help you find your way to some of the finest fishing, lodging, and gear in North America, with "product news and updates for the Professional Alaska Fishing & Hunting Community." It's no secret that Alaska is a fly fisher's paradise, but it can be tough to get to the coolest spots. Alaska is our nation's most sparsely populated state and you don't want to head out there alone.

So hop on the list, get on course, and rest assured: "Each professional involved with AlaskaGuideList is registered and licensed with the State of Alaska and must renew annually to remain in good standing."

Black Mountain Ranch



Remember City Slickers? The 1991 movie in which Billy Crystal causes a stampede and births a calf and saves it from drowning, all in the midst of an existential crisis of epic proportions? Yeah, well, if you go to Black Mountain Ranch, it's not really like that.
We are a small, family run guest ranch in the heart of Colorado. Our goal is to get guests to say "that was the best vacation of our lives!" Check around and let us know if we can help you have a vacation to remember this summer!  Plenty of activities around the ranch. A sampling: Roping Lessons, Shotgun shooting, Pool, Hot Tubs, Fishing, Arena Riding, Mountain Trails. We have plenty of terrain to ride on from canyons to mountain peaks! From novice to expert we will match the horse, the ride, and the group to each rider’s ability. Our horses are professionals at giving folks without much riding experience fantastic experiences.  It is their job. Our staff is from all around the world and shares a common passion for horses, the mountains and showing guests an amazing time.

Doesn't that sound fantastic: horseback riding, a swimming pool and hot tubs, and shooting in the mountains? Plus did you see the pictures of those baby goats?? We'll never want to leave!

Hmm, maybe we should have our own mid-life crisis. Chuck the sticker racket and the cul-de-sac and go live the rest of our days on a ranch, wearing chaps and talking to animals. And getting in touch with our inner Jack Palance. Hey, a StickerGiant can dream, right?
