Researching Your Outreach Zone
HOW TO SELECT AN OUTREACH ZONE
Now that you have a brand new folder all set up, you are ready to begin research for your project.
The very first step in your plotting phase is to begin your Outreach template by following the guidelines below.
YOUR OUTREACH DOCUMENT
Open an outreach document in your new folder. You can remove the words "copy of" from the document title by deleting it from the title window in the top left hand side of your screen.
YOUR RESEARCH TOOLS
If possible, try to plan SSC-Safe events nearby an outreach zone that an SSC Advocate is currently working on. This way, you know that the retail businesses in the area are already aware of SSC and our services. To do this, take a look at our the Master Outreach Chart in our team folder to see what we currently have in motion.
Once you have identified an area of focus, the very first place you will want to look for sponsors is the Oregon Cannabis Business Database. Here you can look up producers, processors, and wholesalers who are located nearby your area of outreach.
If you need a little extra help determining who is in your immediate outreach area, you can always check out the following resources:
Your goal is to identify 25 businesses who may sponsor an SSC-Safe training in their area.
