Recapture lost customers through remarketing

March 3rd, 2016 Posted by general interest, Public relations, SEO/SEM, Social media No Comment yet

remarketinggraphicsAs you pore over your website’s traffic and advertising analytics, what is your most important metric?

If it’s conversions and sales, then remarketing is a powerful tool to add to your belt.

Remarketing is, very simply, advertising targeted at people who have already visited your website or used your application. Remarketing is often more effective in key metrics such as click-through rate and conversions than standard online display advertising. On a base level this is logical since one is targeting people who have already shown some level of interest in one’s company and/or products. But the statistics also bear this out.

Within remarketing, the targeting can be broad (anyone visiting a site) or narrow (people who viewed an individual product or page) allowing the advertiser options in how they want to grab those lost customers. As an example of wide targeting, one can offer discounts or incentives to lure back first time visitors. And on the narrow side, one can remind the visitor of the product they showed interest in while providing a quick way back to that product. This greatly increases the chances of the sale being made. With these factors as well as being cost effective to begin with, the ROI on remarketing outpaces standard online advertising every time.

There are quite a few advertising platforms out there offering remarketing but Google and Facebook are of course the biggest players with the largest advertising networks by far. The fact that they both have excellent, easy to utilize, tools to accomplish remarketing goals just adds to their advantage over others.

ISD-june-20Adios, spring. Aloha, summer!

On Saturday, June 20th, the 11th annual International Surfing Day will be celebrated around the world. The unofficial observance, which was founded by Surfing Magazine and the Surfrider Foundation, has become a global event held to mark the beginning of summer.

As much as surfing has given to us, it is appropriate that we return the favor.

Surfers of different styles, language, race, age and skill will grab their sticks and head down to their local watering hole in celebratory fashion. More than 30 countries this year will attend parties, contests, fundraisers, film screenings and educational beach clean-ups all in the name of honoring the past, present and future of surfing.

How are you celebrating ISD?

Below is a list of a few west coast events happening.

Huntington Beach, CA: An epic World Record attempt is in the forecast tomorrow as riders will look to successfully ride the largest surfboard ever! There will be a beach-wide cleanup, live music and various other giveaways to follow. Sure to be a solid afternoon!

San Diego, CA: Free outdoor movie screening of 5 Summer Stories at Veteran’s Plaza in Ocean Beach; plus games, raffle prizes, pizza and popcorn. Also, “Why I Love The Ocean!” video contest entries shown.

San Clemente, CA: O’Neill beach cleanup at San Clemente Pier followed by a community-wide expression session

San Francisco, CA: Aqua Surf Shop screening of Andrew Kidman’s newest flick, Spirit of Alaska and live music to follow featuring Kidman’s band, The Independent.

Skateboarding World Championships Return to South Africa

February 27th, 2015 Posted by action sports, client news, festivals & events, general interest, press release, skateboarding No Comment yet

Skateboarding World Championships Return to South Africa Oct. 7-10  

For the first time, top finishers of international and U.S. contests, including Dew Tour, X Games, U.S. Skateboarding Championships and Street League, to earn spots in World Championships

(Sacramento, Calif. – February 24, 2015) – World Skateboarding Grand Prix (WSGP) announced today that Kimberley, South Africa will once again host the Skateboarding World Championships, October 7-10, 2015. Thirty-eight countries and 250 skateboarders competed at last year’s event where Brazilian Kelvin Hoeffler beat some of the top names in skateboarding including Nyjah Huston, Tommy Fynn and Louie Lopez, to claim the world champion street title and a piece of skateboarding’s largest prize purse: $500,000.

This year’s Skateboarding World Championships are expected to draw the largest international field of any skate contest in history, with skaters from at least 50 countries expected to compete in five world championship events, including the Women’s Street Championships, Vert Championships, Big Air Championships, Rider Cup Team Championships and Men’s Street Championships.

This year for the first time, the Skateboarding World Championships will extend invitations to the top finishers of notable international contests like the Mystic Cup, Copenhagen Pro, the Turkish Skateboarding Championships, Bryggeriet Malmo and others around the world. Top finishers from U.S. contests, including X Games, Dew Tour, U.S. Skateboarding Championships and Street League, will also earn spots in the Skateboarding World Championships.

Photo Sam ClarkThe 2015 Skateboarding World Championships will be held at the Kimberley Diamond Cup presented by Kumba Iron Ore, which runs from Wednesday, October 7 – Saturday, October 10 in Kimberley, South Africa. The vert and street contests are held at the permanent, state-of-the-art Kumba Skate Plaza that was built for the contests and subsequently donated to the community. The Plaza saw more than 14,000 visitors in 2014, not including the over 20,000 who attended last year’s five-day Kimberley Diamond Cup and Skateboarding World Championship events.

The World Skateboarding Federation (WSF) has sanctioned the World Skateboarding Championships and will provide financial assistance to help pay for travel expenses for skaters in countries without government, corporate or federation support.

In the U.S., it’s typically the sponsors who pay for the skateboarders to travel, but in the rest of the world it doesn’t work that way, according to Tim McFerran, CEO of World Skateboarding Grand Prix, who is also on the board of the newly created World Skateboarding Federation.

“It became evident to us last year that there is a lack of organization, funding and resources in many countries in getting their top skateboarders to international events,” McFerran said. “We are still in the beginning stages of developing a worldwide contest circuit that feeds into one final, year-end cumulative contest, the Skateboarding World Championships, and we have made amazing progress and received worldwide support for what we are trying to do. In addition to the international, country, regional and the invite-only U.S. contests, we anticipate that we will have at least 50 countries represented in the Skateboarding World Championships in South Africa this year. If you’re a top skater in your country then you deserve to be in the world championships, and with the support of the World Skateboarding Federation we will ensure you are able to get to South Africa to represent your country.”

Turkish skateboarder Cenk Kulioglu was one of 35 international skaters who received financial assistance for travel expenses from the World Skateboarding Federation in order to compete in last year’s Skateboarding World Championships.

“I was chosen from Turkey, to go to South Africa to participate in the Kimberley Diamond Cup in 2014. It was the most amazing experience I have ever had,” said Kulioglu. WSGP puts on the biggest contests in the world and has the biggest prize purse. The format is the best and most exciting in skateboarding. When I got there I realized how professional a skateboard contest can be. Everything was perfect. It was always my childhood dream to take part in a contest this big. To be part of the Skateboarding World Championships and to have it broadcasted around the world was a dream come true. I’d like to say thanks to World Skateboarding Federation for making it possible for me to be there!”

In addition to providing funding for top skaters to get to major events like the Skateboarding World Championships, WSF is also committed to providing leadership and direction, to link up with and establish national skateboarding federations and assist with building quality skate parks around the world.

Introducing Sikk Shades®: The New Standard in Performance Eyewear

February 27th, 2015 Posted by action sports, client news, Fashion, general interest, Public relations, skateboarding, Surf No Comment yet

Introducing Sikk Shades®: The New Standard in Performance Eyewear

Flash Electric™ Lens Technology Outperforms Polarized, Gives Athletes Clearer Vision and Better Depth Perception; Perfectly Balanced Frame Offers Better Fit and Embedded Non-Slip Nose Grip for All Day Wear

(Houston, TX—February 26, 2015) Sikk Shades® – a new line of performance eyewear for the action sports market – officially launches today. Developed by former Pro BMX Rider Eddie Bauer Jr., along with some of the industry’s top eyewear designers, Sikk Shades’ flagship frames, the Huckleberry and Qualifier (starting at $119.99) are now available online and in select retailers nationwide. Created specifically for athletes, and designed to withstand harsh weather and extreme conditions, Sikk Shades offer clearer vision and better depth perception than traditional polarized glasses, as well as a better fit and a non-slip, embedded nose grip for all-day wear and comfort.

Sikk Shades’® lenses utilize Flash Electric™ technology, which blocks short-wave light –  the harmful light that leads to eye damage –  and allows ample amounts of long-wave light in. This allows the wearer to avoid the distortion and depth perception issues common in most polarized lenses, while providing clear and unobstructed vision, a huge advantage if you’re on the track or hitting the slopes.

Each pair of Sikk Shades® features a non-slip nose grip embedded into the frame, keeping the glasses securely in place while athletes sweat, experience extreme weather and manage harsh terrain. The durable frames are made by one of Italy’s most respected, independent eyewear manufacturers and are perfectly balanced and weighted to fit better, without the painful pressure points behind the ear – allowing for all day wear and comfort.

“As a former pro BMX/Motorcross racer, I was frustrated by the polarized sunglasses I was wearing constantly distorting my vision, giving off that weird prism effect and causing depth perception issues – something that’s particularly problematic when you’re skating, snowboarding, riding motocross or BMX,” said Eddie Bauer Jr., founder and CEO of Sikk Shades®.  “I started doing research to find an alternative to polarized lenses and found Flash Electric™ technology was the perfect solution. It outperforms polarized in virtually every aspect, providing superior vision while also letting in fewer damaging UV rays. From there, we developed the perfectly weighted and balanced frames, which eliminate the pressure points behind the ears and offer a very comfortable fit. We also embedded the nose grip right into the frame. We’ve had the glasses tested by our friends and colleagues in the industry and they’ve received incredible reviews. We’re excited to launch what we believe will be the new standard in performance eyewear for the action sports industry.”

Sikk Shades® has assembled an impressive roster of up-and-coming athletes from skate, surf, snow, BMX and motocross to test its flagship frames and to serve as brand ambassadors, including:

Surf: Paul Pluey, Vanina Walsh

Skate: Daniel Cuervo, Jose Cheese Chevalo

Snow: Ian Kuhn, Phil Smage, Jason Lozzi, Aaron Lozzi and Brandon Heitzenrater

Olympians: Lucas Mata (Australian bobsled team) and Mirela Rahneva (Olympian skeleton racer for Team Canada)

Motocross: Craig Robertson, Austin Politelli and Dylan French

BMX: Justin Carson (5-time Colorado State Champion)

Auto: Austin Ford and Kyle Keenan

To learn more about the Sikk Shades® Team, visit www.SikkShades.com.

About Sikk Shades®

Sikk Shades® is the new standard in performance eyewear for active lifestyles. After three years of research and development, Sikk Shades’ flagship frames, Huckleberry and Qualifier, offer action sports enthusiasts a fresh look while outperforming traditional polarized lenses. Founded by Eddie Bauer Jr. and tested by up-and-coming amateur and professional athletes, Sikk Shades utilize Flash Electric™ technology, which blocks harmful UV rays while avoiding the distortion and depth perception issues common in most polarized lenses. The perfectly balanced, Italian-made frames eliminate pressure points behind the ears for a better fit and all day wear and comfort. The non-slip nose grip is embedded right into the frame, keeping glasses firmly in place even in harsh conditions.
