This is also a way to demonstrate how social media can work for outdoor companies still putting together a comprehensive strategy.
San Diego, CA (Vocus) September 29, 2009

Cercone’s firm has been the architect of online, PR and social media marketing programs for such outdoor industry brands as adidas, Orvis, Nalgene, Karhu, K2, Quiksilver, Timberland, Royal Robins, HIND, Sperry Top-Sider and others. The firm has also handled many non-outdoor brands on the vanguard of online and social media marketing, including Hasbro, GMAC Insurance, Castrol GTX, Nantucket Nectars and Beneficial Financial Group.
In fact, the firm has been named a Finalist for the Best Online Campaign 2009 by the prestigious Platinum Awards.
“Twitter is perfect for real-time updates from events, giving folks a quick idea of what’s happening, and what they may want to get more information on,” said Cercone. “This is also a way to demonstrate how social media can work for outdoor companies still putting together a comprehensive strategy.”
According to Cercone, social media marketing should include more than Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. It starts with a well-planned targeting and prioritization process, is sustained with strong content, and maintained with a complete monitoring, tracking and reporting system such as Radian6.
