Buford, Ga. – Adventure Advertising, a leading agency specializing in the development, execution and measurement of integrated marketing solutions for the outdoors market, announced today its innovative new video entertainment network, OutdoorFlics. The outdoor industry’s first video-focused digital content marketing and distribution business, OutdoorFlics launches with the premiere of Project Z, a competition mini-series featuring professional anglers using only Z-Man products. Premiering February 10, 2014 on Bassmaster.com, the series’ 15-minute episodes will continue to air in the weeks immediately preceding the 2014 Bassmaster Classic. Re-airs will be distributed one week after the original episode air dates through Bassfan.com, Wired2Fish.com, Zmanfishing.com, Basseast.com, projectz.fishflics.com and a host of other sites. Each episode will be promoted heavily through video advertising on YouTube, strategic Website banner placements and social media posts.
Inspired by shows like Bravo’s Top Chef, History Channel’s Swamp People and CBS’s The Amazing Race, Project Z will feature three accomplished and seasoned anglers—former Bassmaster Classic Winner Luke Clausen, along with David Walker and Stephen Browning, who will both compete in the upcoming Classic with an eye on winning their first championship. The anglers will participate in three challenges that will put their decision-making and angling skills to the test. The main focus of the series is the process by which each competitor goes about completing the challenges. Offering valuable tips for anglers, the stars break down their decision-making on why, how and where they are fishing with the Z-Man bait they selected. Personalities of each pro will be highlighted through interactions with one another both on and off the water. Throughout the show the Project Z body of water, Alabama’s Lake Guntersville, will emerge as an additional character as the anglers determine the best approach to interact with it in their pursuit. As the anglers break down all 69,000 acres of Lake Guntersville in only 15 hours, the series will offer a sneak peek into how it will fish for the upcoming super bowl of bass fishing.
“Over two years in the making, we crafted OutdoorFlics to capitalize on what will be the largest advertising vehicle in 2015—online video,” said Jason Meninger, partner, Adventure Advertising. “Not only do people prefer watching video over reading text, video keeps visitors on a Website longer, significantly increases retention and increases purchasing likelihood by more than 64% when compared with other online vehicles. With more than 1.5 billion video viewers predicted next year, OutdoorFlics’ time has come and is ideally poised to drive awareness and buy consideration for our clients!”
