AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Guidefitter, the online network for guided hunting & fishing adventures, today announced it has added sixteen additional brands to “the Grid,” its unique influencer marketing service for outdoor gear manufacturers. The new partners provide products across multiple gear categories including hunting apparel, tree stands, archery equipment and blinds, providing guides and outfitters with access to more discounted products they need to be successful with their clients.
The Grid, announced earlier this year at SHOT Show in Las Vegas, is a specialty web marketing solution enabling manufacturers to more easily reach a large network of guides and outfitters who are actively engaged in the hunting and fishing industry. The Grid also provides verified hunting and fishing guides and outfitters with a central location to learn about and engage with brands that offer pro-discounts.
“Adoption of the Grid by both outdoor pros and gear manufacturers is continuing to go well for us,” said Bryan Koontz, founder and CEO of Guidefitter. “It’s clear, especially as we expand the number of gear choices available and grow our verified pro network, that the Grid is adding significant value for all involved.”
New Guidefitter Grid partners announced today include Rinehart Targets, Nature Blinds, KOWA Sporting Optics, Muddy, First Lite, MTN OPS, Sportsman's Box, Rivers Edge, Barronett Blinds, Slumberjack, William Joesph, PRIME Archery, Redneck Blinds, G5, Voke Tab and Ozonics.
These new partners join the growing list of other Guidefitter Grid partners, including: Air Armor Tech, ALPS OutdoorZ, Badlands, Browning, Carbon Skin, Code Blue, Delorme, IWOM, Kenetrek, Knight & Hale, Kodiak Series Cameras, Kryptek, KUIU, Leica, Life Straw, Moultrie, Orion Coolers, Outdoor Edge, Ox Rack, Seek Outside, StealthPod X, Summit and Zeiss.
“Since launching Guidefitter Grid pages in April for four of our brands, including Summit, Moultrie, Knight & Hale and Code Blue, we have had a great response from guides and outfitters,” said Beth Jones, associate marketing director for PRADCO Outdoor Brands. “We’ve had hundreds of Guidefitter Verified Pros join our program, with Guidefitter doing all the heavy-lifting for us to verify their pro status.”
Access to the Grid is available exclusively to verified guides and outfitters who are members of the Guidefitter network. To become a Guidefitter Verified Pro, guides and outfitters simply need to contact Guidefitter and submit a short list of information that verifies their status as an outdoor professional actively engaged in guiding and hosting clients. Once approved, Guidefitter Verified Pros have access to all brand partners of the Grid in a central location on Guidefitter.com
