Creating a Digital Presence

Digital Operative was brought onboard by GSI Outdoors to create a digital presence – specifically, to build a visually appealing and user-friendly website that would facilitate an increase in revenue for a brand that previously relied on partners’ digital channels rather than their own.

    A common theme among GSI consumers is their passion for the outdoors. Digital Operative was committed to carrying this theme throughout all aspects of content development, showcasing travel destinations and different activities for both individuals and groups. In every blog post and product description, the Digital Operative team drove home the importance of quality, adventure, community and genuine passion for the outdoors.
