RMEF to Launch Next Generation in Media for All Things Elk
MISSOULA, Mont.—The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is excited to introduce the Elk Network, a new online media platform that will serve as a complete source of information for all things elk and elk country.
“This online digital platform is several years in the making,” said Steve Decker, RMEF vice president of Marketing. “It is specifically designed to be clean, user-friendly and to mirror social media functionality through a scrolling news feed and the ability to discuss each topic. Our goal with this is to continue to innovate the ways that RMEF creates outbound messaging. It will focus on highly visual and consumable content through a mobile-responsive platform making for effective viewing on any sized screen, anywhere.”
RMEF will officially launch the Elk Network at noon (MST) on Friday, March 3 at elknetwork.com. You can visit the site now to view a video overview of the Elk Network.
“We intend for this to be the place to go for people who are seeking information on elk and elk hunting, as well as anything related to elk country. The Elk Network will also feature recipes, RMEF’s on-the-ground conservation and mission work, entire episodes from past seasons of RMEF Team Elk, as well as other original productions. We are also excited that it will also offer sportsmen and women the opportunity to contribute their own photos, videos and stories,” added Decker.
With a rapidly growing social media presence, RMEF surpassed 500,000 Facebook likes this past weekend. In 2016, RMEF managed to reach more than 24 million people with its #Hunting Is Conservation campaign alone.
