On Episode 15 of Behind The Brand, Fuller dives in with Scott Salyers, Fishing Group Publisher, Bonnier Corporation. Bonnier has the nation’s leading portfolio of media brands in the marine category, including Salt Water Sportsman, Marlin and Sport Fishing magazines. If you think print media is dead, Salyers, a 25-year veteran with the brand, is here to set the record straight.
“I have been in media all my life,” said Salyers. “I was the paperboy way back when. I got on my bike with a canvas bag and I chucked papers.”
“My father had an ad agency and I grew up on the production side of the business,” he adds. “I ran a printing press when I was in high school.”
After college, Salyers landed at Bonnier and has worked with the brand for over two decades.
According to Salyers, the Bonnier team consists of industry experts, like himself, with the “greenhorn” on the team having been with the brand for over twelve years. And Bonnier isn’t slowing down. The company is moving full speed ahead.
Throughout the episode, Fuller and Salyers discuss the relevance of print media in a digital world, the addition of QR codes, social media and all facets of how the brand is navigating this complex and evolving landscape. And, if you’re a brand looking to make a splash in the market, print is still a force to be reckoned with.
These two outdoor industry veterans might even share and compare fish stories from over the years.
