Swapping Ski Audiences: K2 Gives Retailers Access to Its Visitors

By kkaye@adage.com (Kate Kaye)


Ski and snowboard maker K2 Sports is giving its retail partners a new ability to reach people who are interested in its products such as Super Charger skis or Bottle Rocket snowboards.

In December, the company, which also makes snowshoes as well as ice and inline skates, paired with OwnerIQ to open its data marketplace, a co-op program allowing retailers selling K2 branded gear to aim co-branded ads to winter sports shoppers who have visited K2’s 10 websites.

Today, five retailers have signed on to the opportunity to deliver ads for their stores to people visiting K2’s in-house-managed websites, which generate 1.5 million page views each month. With a total of 50 retailers pre-approved for the co-op, K2 anticipates more interest from those other stores, particularly when it makes a planned push behind the co-op and co-branded ad collateral this summer, when its 2017 product lines are introduced.
