Insights, Strategy & the Idea
The objective was to position TAKEMEFISHING.ORG as the one-stop shop for everything you need to know about fishing. The target audience was lapsed or infrequent anglers. The insight that drove us was the idea that we could use a media buy as an opportunity to SHOW people, rather than merely telling them, how makes fishing fun and easy.

Creative Execution
In order to drive traffic to TAKEMEFISHING.ORG, we wanted to create an ad campaign that would cut through the clutter of traditional magazine advertising. An added challenge was that we were using an “old” medium to drive traffic to a new one. All the more reason we needed to create interruptive and memorable executions. We partnered with our print publications to secure value-added insertions on top of a more traditional buy.

Results and Effectiveness
This campaign has led to a 20% increase in site traffic. In the ever more competitive drive for attention, these ads helped increase unaided awareness of TAKEMEFISHING.ORG significantly. The bottom line? We didn’t just buy an impression, we made one.
