When people think about the Outdoor Industry and which cities and states it thrives in, they usually don’t think of Georgia. What comes to your mind? California, Colorado, Washington, Oregon? Probably. But did you know that Georgia is right behind California, Florida and New York for outdoor recreation consumer spending? From what we can gather, that stat includes the Bicycling Industry, Boating Industry and Motorcycle industry, but not hunting, fishing or wildlife.
So perhaps if you’re a Marketing Director looking for an agency to help grow your brand, the fact that we’re located in Atlanta might be better than you think. In fact, we have a lot of great outdoor companies already based here, including Vibe Kayaks (a current client) and past clients — Wahoo Fitness and BlueWater Ropes. Then there are many others like Mizuno, Tifosi, Dermatone, Triumph Motorcycles, Yamaha Boats, Thomson Bikes and many others all based in Georgia. Nearby in TN, we have American Bicycle Group and a few others.
So other than our smart thinking and great creative, what are some advantages of working with an Atlanta advertising and PR firm like Seed Factory? How about great shooting locations that are the same as our play locations. We have good bicycling 10 minutes away from the office. Mountain biking at Sope Creek and road riding on the Silver Comet Trail that stretches all the way to Alabama. Go 45 minutes out of town and we have a couple of fantastic lakes for water sports, then there’s the Appalachian trail starting just an hour north of Atlanta, and the diverse outdoor town of Chattanooga for a variety of scenic backdrops. As a bonus, the white sands and turquoise waters of the Caribbean are a short (5 hour) drive away for SUP, boating and other water sports photography and filming. There is also some of the best mountain biking in the country 3 hours away in Brevard, NC with Pisgah Forest.
Bottom line is, we’re passionate about the Outdoor Industry and the Bicycling Industry. Maybe you should give our agency a visit and then take a ride, climb or paddle with us.
