Program Promotion

Welcome to the Water and Discover Boating are programs designed to persuade more consumers to try and, hopefully, adopt the boating lifestlye. NMDA members are encouraged to use the FREE resource materials on the Growboating.org website to promote boating in a variety of ways. These materials can be used on your websites, but also, can be provided to dealers as they are in direct contact with consumers.

Discover Boating researched and evaluated which online resources consumers consult before making a purchase. They have tons of tools you can add to your website:

  • Videos – Welcome to the Water, Good Run, Boating Guy and more
  • Interactive Tools – Boat loan calculator, cost comparison tool, Take Me Fishing Hotspot Map, Spouse Conversion
  • Facebook Tools – MovieMaker
  • Printable Checklists – Boating Safety, Spring Start-up, Winterizing Your Boat and mroe

For questions on how to apply the tools above to your company’s website, contact Armida Markarova at 312.946.6284 or amarkarova@nmma.org

Add Welcome to the Water Video to Your Website

Note the expressions in these boaters’ faces – From the accountant to the mechanic, Discover Boating welcomes everyone to the water and this video captures it all! This is more than a campaign, it’s a movement to get more people on the water. Join the  movement & add this video to your website. You can also find the video on YouTube.
