As a fishing guide/fishing charter captain, you’ve mastered the art of catching the big ones, teaching tourists the finer points of casting, and showing folks the time of their lives on the open water.
But how are you at attracting online customers?
In 2023, effective online marketing is 100% critical for your business’s success.
With the complexity of the online marketplace, it might be about time to consider hiring a fishing marketing agency.
Not convinced? Here’s one big reason you should consider doing so:
A fishing marketing agency comes with specialized knowledge of your industry. They understand your business, your customers, and the digital fishing landscape. This knowledge allows them to create targeted, effective strategies that a general marketing agency might miss.
- Take the example of SEO strategy development. A general marketing agency would certainly know about SEO, but a fishing marketing agency would understand the nitty-gritty specifics of the fishing industry. They’d know, for example, the most searched fishing terms or which species of fish are most popular during which seasons. This specialized knowledge allows them to optimize your website and content using the precise keywords your potential customers are using.
- Or, let’s consider the example of content creation. A fishing marketing agency would know how to write content that truly resonates with your target audience. They’d understand that your audience wants to read not only about fishing techniques but also about the best fishing gear, local fishing laws, or fishing sustainability practices. This nuanced understanding of the industry can create a deeper connection with your potential customers, making your content more appealing and effective.
You might be wondering, “Can’t any generic marketing agency just Google all the stuff about my business?”
On the surface, that might seem logical.
The internet’s a vast resource, right?
Yes… but there’s a catch, and it’s not a redfish this time.
Consider this: You wouldn’t expect a rookie who Googled “how to fish” a few months ago to reel in a marlin if they headed offshore today, would you?
They lack practical experience, a nuanced understanding of fishing, and the know-how that comes from many years of experience. That’s precisely the difference between hiring a fishing marketing agency like Page One Fishing and a generic one with a name like Synergy Media Innovation.. Solutions.
Can’t you just picture the team at “Typical Digital Solutions” trying to tell the difference between a permit and a pompano?
Or the team at “Pinnacle Social Collective” having to spend valuable time trawling through page after page of Wikipedia to learn the difference between a baitcaster and a spinning reel, while you’re out there expertly guiding clients on the water—hoping they’ll generate some bookings for you?
Now, contrast that with a fishing marketing agency like Page One Fishing.
You’ve got experts who not only can tell SEM from SEO and CPM from PPC, but can also tell a rig from a jig.
That’s because we’re not just general marketers; we’re digital marketers who live and breathe the fishing lifestyle—just like you and your clients do.
We know fishing because we’ve lived and breathed fishing just like you.
We know what motivates your customers, excites them, and concerns them.
We understand the conversations your potential customers are having and can speak fishing lingo as well as marketing jargon.
There’s also the time factor.
As a fishing guide or charter captain, your most valuable asset is your time and expertise on the water. If you find yourself tangled in tasks that aren’t directly related to this—like managing your website’s SEO or crafting the perfect social media post—then it’s time to consider delegating.
From regular website updates to crafting the perfect social media post, we’re prepared to take on tasks that don’t need your direct involvement.
But it’s not just about saving time. Our in-depth knowledge of the fishing industry gives us an edge in developing effective strategies.
So chances are we’ll also see opportunities and tactics that you hadn’t considered, and these new approaches can ultimately lead to growth for your business.
A generic marketing agency might eventually find the right information after combing through dozens of fishing forums, industry reports, and research papers.
But while they’re spending time researching and playing catch up, Page One Fishing is already strategizing your next campaign, analyzing your data, and crafting your content.
We’re able to get right to work because we already possess the knowledge base for the industry you’re in.
The Bottom Line
So, yes, a general marketing agency can look up facts about the fishing industry.
But can they truly understand the industry like a fishing marketing agency?
Can they gain your customers’ trust as easily?
Can they speak the language of your business fluently, and with authenticity?
When it comes to choosing between a fishing marketing agency and a general one, think about it this way: would you rather entrust your marketing strategy to someone who has only read about fishing, or to someone who’s fished, baited hooks, navigated the waters, and lived to tell the tale?
The choice seems pretty clear, doesn’t it?
