Riton Optics Partners with GoWild as Digital Advertising Options Tighten for Firearms Companies

September 30, 2019

Like many firearms-related companies, Riton Optics has experienced its share of blocked advertising efforts from mainstream digital advertising platforms. As the company diversifies its efforts and looks for new ways to reach firearms enthusiasts, it’s chosen to partner with social media and activity tracking app, GoWild. 

“What started as bullying of individuals has turned into a barricade for an entire industry. We’re excited to show Riton Optics that we’re not just a welcoming app for this community, we can deliver more targeted conversions and richer analytics.”

“Beyond simply allowing firearms and gun accessory companies to advertise, GoWild offered Riton Optics some marketing tactics we haven’t seen elsewhere,” said Calley Carpenter, Director of Marketing.  “We’ll be able to reach tens of thousands of active hunters and firearms enthusiasts, and we’re excited to see what evolves for the two brands as we both evolve our young companies.”

Riton Optics was founded in Arizona in 2013 by a Law Enforcement and Military Veteran, Brady Speth, and his wife, Carrie Speth. The Veteran and family-owned business focuses on bringing quality and affordability to the optics industry. GoWild’s capabilities in niche, data-driven marketing was at the core of the appeal for the research-focused Riton team. 

“We created GoWild because, as hunters and firearms enthusiasts ourselves, we saw passionate and misunderstood people being rejected from mainstream social platforms and realized that wasn’t going to slow down,” said GoWild Cofounder, CEO, Brad Luttrell. “What started as bullying of individuals has turned into a barricade for an entire industry. We’re excited to show Riton Optics that we’re not just a welcoming app for this community, we can deliver more targeted conversions and richer analytics.”

Riton Optics will utilize GoWild’s platform for marketing and analytics for the remainder of 2019.

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.
