It was expected that 41 million Americans would be traveling at least 50 miles from their homes this past weekend. We’ve already addressed my mediocre math skills, but it doesn’t take a genius to realize the opportunity for the rafting industry to capitalize on this.
As for the 155 million pounds of hot dogs expected to be eaten, well that’s just an added bonus.
After pulling the past week’s data, it looks like many of those in the industry were in fact busy on and off the river. Here are some of the Facebook leaders from the past week:
- All Outdoors (California) gained 1712 new Likes in one week.
- Adventures on the Gorge (Mid-Atlantic) had 2679 Engagement Exc. New Likes.
- Far Flung Outdoor Center (Southwest) had 66.28% Engagement Ratio.
- Pocono Whitewater (Mid-Atlantic) had 372 Check-ins.
