SNEWS is proud to announce the launch of Gear Minute, a new sponsored video opportunity for companies in the outdoor industry to share information about noteworthy products with thousands of leading retailers in a trusted editorial environment.

Gear Minute videos—approximately 60 seconds in length—are produced by SNEWS in collaboration with our partners to ensure that you share exactly the right message with a trade audience to build awareness and drive sell-in for your latest gear.

It's easy to get started. Simply send your product to the SNEWS offices along with a script describing signature materials, innovations, features, and benefits that help your gear stand apart from the crowd. If you have B-roll footage capturing the product in use, we'll integrate it to show your gear in its natural surroundings. We'll produce a high quality video and incorporate your feedback in the editing process.

All Gear Minute campaigns include:

  • Prominent placement for the sponsored video on the SNEWS homepage for one week
  • Promotion of the sponsored video in all editions of the SNEWS newsletter delivered during the week of homepage placement
  • Promotion of the sponsored video on SNEWS social media channels during the week of homepage placement
  • Continued hosting for each video in a Gear Minute archive channel on the SNEWS website following the week of homepage placement

Additionally, we will deliver the final video to our partners for publication on their websites, social media, and other marketing channels to extend reach and complement other promotions.
