RYU Apparel Places Its Backpack Category at the Forefront of a New Cross Channel Marketing Campaign

Over the next seven weeks, RYU will introduce their 7-item backpacks category with PPC ads and a new landing page,  driving users to a curated shopping experience on their ecommerce platform. This will be augmented with a storytelling campaign to introduce a variety of uses for the backpacks based on core RYU activities like urban training, as well as broader interests like mountain biking and travel. All content will be shared across paid, earned and owned channels for maximum reach and engagement. They will also publish articles, sponsored content and contests on high profile third-party sites to improve audience acquisition and drive traffic to RYU’s ecommerce site.

According to Mr. Beers , “We will execute an aggressive new digital marketing campaign to secure premium positioning for our content and  reach a new target audience. Our social strategy will leverage key partners in new movement spaces so we can introduce RYU to an expanded audience, leading with one of our best product collections: backpacks.”
