Hooked on Success: MassWildlife’s Angling License Campaign

Hooked on Success: MassWildlife’s Angling License Campaign

MassWildlife, the steward of freshwater fish and wildlife in Massachusetts, is on a mission to conserve the state’s natural treasures. They tirelessly work to restore, protect, and manage wildlife habitats, ensuring that both nature and outdoor enthusiasts thrive. In addition to their conservation efforts, MassWildlife offers educational programs, workshops, and resources to foster a deeper appreciation for wildlife conservation among residents.

In 2021 and 2022, we had the privilege of collaborating with MassWildlife on a dynamic ad campaign spanning Google and Social Media platforms. The primary objective of this campaign was to retain avid anglers, reignite interest from former license holders, and entice potential new license buyers to purchase official MassWildlife freshwater fishing licenses. By employing a strategic approach, we targeted a diverse range of audiences, including outdoor generalist women anglers, out-of-state outdoor enthusiasts new to fishing, and local nature enthusiasts.
