SAN DIEGO, CA (PRWEB) January 30, 2015
Digital Operative, a full-service digital marketing agency, worked with the Outdoor Nation to engage college students and Universities in the outdoors through the Outdoor Nation Campus Challenge (ONCC).
In just eight weeks the Outdoor Nation had a social reach of over 2.5 million people including, students, faculty members, alumni and community members during ONCC. Over 2,500 activities were logged with just the top 10 winners. Outdoor Nation worked to encourage an online conversation that will translate into real and lasting change for individuals and groups in the outdoors. “We believe college students have the power to change the world. This challenge is about school communities and student bodies joining together to try and get the most people outside and active,” says Outdoor Nation. “Ensuring that the next generation has the opportunity to play outside is imperative to the outdoor industry.”
Digital Operative has pursued a strategy in which technology is used not only as a common medium for information sharing, but as further encouragement for others to pursue an active, outdoor lifestyle.“Many people look at technology as a hindrance to outdoor participation,” says B.J. Cook, CEO of Digital Operative. “But, we look at it as a catalyst for connecting more people outside and making a change.”
No matter the direction that is taken by non-profits such as Outdoor Nation, ultimately it comes down to the willingness to pursue their audience wherever they may be, outdoors or on social networks.
