Show Notes

[00:00:40] Episode 409 of the Outdoor Biz Podcast with Rachel Piacenza, director of marketing for the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation, discusses leadership and empowerment.

[00:05:56] Rachel grew up near a fishing resort, and developed a passion for the outdoors and water.

[00:09:16] After college, Rachel joined Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources, which connected me to RBFF’s annual marketing workshops for representatives from all 50 states. I was fortunate to attend and discuss successful marketing strategies for our state with minimal competition.

[00:10:56] We are a small nonprofit promoting fishing and boating. We run marketing campaigns and engage with stakeholders to elevate these activities in state and federal parks. Our focus is on awareness and education.

[00:14:40] We collaborate with Discover Boating for an awareness campaign and refer traffic to their website. We also attend boating industry events to promote our brand.

[00:26:04] Passionate outdoor community, build relationships, step out of comfort zone.

[00:28:52] Rachel’s current book she is reading, Grit by Angela Duckworth.

[00:30:29] One more thought from Rachel: “why do I need to buy a license? What’s the importance? Like, why do I need to pay somebody to go enjoy a resource, right? One important data fact is 100 percent of fishing license sales go directly back into conservation.
