GoWild Unveils Alternative to Facebook Groups for Outdoor Brands

GoWild Unveils Alternative to Facebook Groups for Outdoor Brands

January 20, 2020 2 Comments

 

LAS VEGAS—While mainstream social media platforms throttle outdoors and firearms content, one social media company is expanding its functionality for hunters, shooters and outdoor brands.

GoWild a social platform built by outdoor enthusiasts for outdoor enthusiasts, unveiled plans for customizable forums for both members and brands at the hunting and shooting industry’s largest trade event, SHOT Show. Similar to Facebook’s Groups, GoWild’s Custom Trails will allow for niche conversations. The functionality matches and exceeds that found in Facebook Groups. The company notes that the most significant difference is GoWild’s support of hunters, firearms enthusiasts and the 2nd Amendment. 

“What started as vague advertising guidelines against firearms and bows quickly made its way into content policy. A misunderstanding of what it means to be a shooter or hunter has caused increased censorship of legal activity, it’s driven demonetization, and now, introduced an outright ban in influencer marketing for firearms companies. This has been going on for years, and to think our industry is suddenly going to find solace would be naive. It’s time for a solution from within the outdoor industry.” - GoWild Cofounder, CEO, Brad Luttrell. 

Luttrell, the hunter who formed GoWild in 2016, believes his team’s platform is well positioned to provide the appropriate online community for outdoor enthusiasts. The company has worked with a wide array of outdoor companies, including Polaris Adventures, Garmin, First Lite, Obsession Bows, Riton Optics, Canik, SCI, National Wild Turkey Federation, Houston Safari Club Foundation and many more. With an engaging audience and rapid growth, GoWild’s Client Partners are also behind the move.

“GoWild’s insights into the outdoor community and marketing capabilities put your brand at the right place, at the right time, to connect with passionate consumers,” said GoWild Client Partner, Corey Consuegra, Head of Marketing for Arcus Brands. “We’ve worked with GoWild since its inception and we’re excited about this next step in the continued development of the best platform for hunters and shooters.”

GoWild’s new product is slated to be released Spring of 2020. 

About GoWild: GoWild is an activity-based social platform for outdoor enthusiasts. The app is free and available for Android, iOS and Garmin. GoWild has worked with brands like Garmin, Polaris Adventures, First Lite, Outdoor Access and National Wild Turkey Federation.

I am looking for a viable place to post my hunting videos. I presently have 700 on my Hovey Smith YouTube channel and Pinterest. Do you have a suitable site for videos of up to a half hour long that are revenue producing.

Tracking outdoor activities is incredibly fun and rewarding. You already knew you worked hard—you could feel the burn. But how cool is it to know you also climbed 2,100 feet of elevation, your max heart rate was 183, max ambient air temperature was 84º, your average cadence was 37 strides per minute and the total distance was 8.1 miles?

When thinking of how to prepare wild game I often think of the iconic scene from Forrest Gump where Bubba is explaining all the methods to prepare shrimp… fried shrimp, shrimp kabobs, shrimp gumbo, etc. Venison and most game meats are highly versatile, and are consumed in countless dishes and cuisines from around the world. You may now be thinking, “Fried deer, elk burgers, goose kabobs”… the list goes on forever. Each wild meal I prepare is a chance to extract the most out of whatever cut of meat I am preparing, combining those rich flavors with quality, seasonal ingredients to create a mouthwatering and delicious meal for my family and friends.

2020 has been a year of uncertainty, but one thing remains true: Dad’s are awesome.And if your old man ever deserved a patriarchal offering, it’s amid a pandemic. Who else can break the tension of quarantine with a one-liner better than the old man himself? No one, that’s who. Here are my suggestions for the old man, as it relates to hunting, fishing and that grand ol’ dad hobby, barbecuing.
