Expedition Outside is an on-demand fly fishing company. The concept is to allow anglers to access private stretches of river throughout Colorado. Much like Airbnb, you’d select the closest town or river where you’d like to fish, browse available properties, and book the one that suits you.

How does a brand new company reach their target audience in a cost-effective manner? Through a digital marketing campaign designed to find where fly fishermen and women are consuming content online and meet them there.

Colorado in the fall is a truly epic place.

Our Approach

We initiated a full-fledged digital campaign that included SEO, blogs, video, social media, paid social, Google Ads, and email. As always, providing value to fly fishermen and women beyond the service we sell was top of mind. 

Using the blog, video, and social media, we organically introduced the brand to fly fishing enthusiasts nationwide. We discovered early on that there was a lot of low-hanging fruit to fuel our SEO and blog agenda. That’s why today the blog outpaces many industry giants around fly fishing keywords.
