Male Media Opps: Slingshot to receive ‘aggressive' marketing investments
Subject: digital, TV, print, radio, social media
Company: Winmo), headquartered in Medina, MN, designs, manufactures and distributes ATVs, snowmobiles, Ranger utility vehicles and Victory motorcycles. The company also produces the Pure Polaris line of accessories and garments.
Opportunity: Per COO Bennett Morgan’s remarks in the Q4 earnings transcript, Polaris is planning “aggressive” marketing investments for the Slingshot three-wheeled motorcycle. Slingshot is entering its second year on the market, and Morgan expects growth to be strong (read more about DV’s take on the initial Slingshot launch reports that interest has far exceeded expectations for sales and profitability.
As such, male-focused ad support for Slingshot should be up this year and beyond, especially with three-wheeler Elio set to begin production at the end of 2016 (research here). However, keep in mind that while both are (or will be) classified as motorcycles by the government, Slingshot is positioned as fun/power and Elio targets the eco-friendly crowd.
According to The List, rEvolution handles media buying and planning for Polaris Industries.
