“I’ve been to enough poker tournaments and home games to know that players always need playing cards, poker chips and other poker-related accessories. Then I realized that they also needed a trusted supplier to purchase poker tables and poker table tops in quantity . . . and that’s when I saw the tremendous potential to become that trusted resource.”
College Station, TX (PRWEB) February 25, 2012
When owner Jim Paris decided to launch the Texas Poker Store he had already been developing websites for others since 1996. “I’d helped so many clients become successful with their online businesses, I thought it was about time to do the same for myself,” he says.
So Paris quit his day job to devote all his time to creating a great online poker supply store . “I know that the only way to really be successful is to go with your passion and then work at it like crazy,” Paris says. “Poker is not only my passion, but it is unbelievably popular here in Texas and around the world. I wanted to capitalize on that.”
Since launching a year ago, texaspokerstore.com is fast becoming the go-to site for recreational and hard-core poker players who want to purchase high-quality but inexpensive poker supplies of any kind, which is exactly what Paris had in mind.
“I’ve been to enough poker tournaments and home games to know that players always need playing cards, poker chips and other poker-related accessories. Then I realized that they also needed a trusted supplier to purchase poker tables and poker table tops in quantity . . . and that’s when I saw the tremendous potential to become that trusted resource.
“I knew I had achieved that when the police department of a large city in Texas decided to order all their poker supplies for their annual tournament from the Texas Poker Store” Paris adds
Paris understood from his years in internet marketing that launching a successful business was not just about selling great product. ” What was equally if not more important was to engage my customers by providing them useful and entertaining information.”
Customers can submit their favorite poker jokes, ask questions about the rules for Texas holdem or watch video clips and tips from the legends. TPS also has a Facebook page, a blog and tweets regularly from its Twitter account. “We do whatever we can to connect to our loyal fans, customers and of course, to all poker lovers everywhere. We want to thank everyone for your support and contributions that have led to such a successful first year for us at TexasPokerStore.com.”
