Seasonal Media Campaign
Our seasonal media campaign is now underway! Forget John Lewis and M&S! This is all about being targeted at a country-wide audience of outdoor walkers runners and climbers.
There’s a few reasons for advertising
1) To remind people of what we do!
2) To nudge folk into thinking about unique gifts for the outdoors (and they don’t get uniquer than SplashMaps personalsied Toobs and their dedicated custom !)
3) To support all our retailers selling out of 42 outlets across the country.
It’s a tall order! This year People will be buying from more places than ever before, including the National Trust, Garden Centres, Gift shops, Outdoors shops, Bike shops and Amazon as well as directly through our own site.
So, if you are an affiliate of ours, a retailer or a customer, the below will be of interest. Get involved and use our advertising investment to bring feet through your door, traffic to your site and money in your pocket.
You could also walk away with a free personalised SplashMap and a range of unique deals after all!
What’s the schedule?
