Selling FUN without a Video, HOW?

21 01 2008

Continuing on our 2008 theme of bring ideas forward……

This past week in Rosemont, IL was the 29th Annual ChicagoLand Outdoors Show. An yes, despite football, cold weather and house work I did attend. {for those wondering, it’s like fishing, my wife goes or I don’t}

Every year we pass through the numerous displays of toys, trinkets and wonder lures anticipating ice out, {ice fishing really hasn’t gotten us yet} but always look forward too visiting the numerous lodges and fishing camps that bring life back too our little part of the world. But this year, I had a little bug up my crawl….no Video…

Because the tech world we’re in I have become spoiled. @ the CES Show in Vegas, attendees downloaded more than 10,000 programs onto SanDisk flash drives. But here I was still subjected to paper and still pictures, even the web site list of vendors didn’t have links. An the bug start too grow…

My saturday mornings during this time is geared around watching the fishing shows from 6:00am till 10:30am. Almost too the point, when the turkey hunting series start it must be time to get out. And yes I would like to see a video of the lake, cabin and facilities where I’m going to spend the next week fishing. Some cases throw in a little bit about the surrounding area, Rhinelander Wis and Grand Rapids, Minn are wonderful places with many different attractions through out the year.

Chambers that take pride and memberships dues to pay for marketing events like this, have for some reason not taken this medium serious, which is sad. Fishman will all agree, each year we have to go a little further North because that family fishing site is sold into condo’s. …..I have a camera on my boat to find fish, hello
