Position Your Business as a Resource: Three Free Tools to Help Your Customers Get Back on the Water

As states begin to loosen restrictions and people are thinking about leaving the quarantine of their homes, RBFF wants to make it safe and easy for you to help your customers get out on the water. Help your customers ensure they are fishing and boating safely and according to their state’s regulations, purchase their fishing licenses, and find places to fish & boat near them by adding three free tools to your company’s website.

1) State Agency COVID-19 Response Plugin

RBFF made it easy for your customers to find each state’s latest fishing & boating COVID-19 response and updates in their area. Incorporate the State Agency COVID-19 Response Plugin to your company’s COVID-19 response messages to make sure your customers know what is going on locally, direct from the appropriate state resource.

2) Fishing License & Boat Registration Website Plugin

Anyone wanting to get out on the water needs a current fishing license and boat registration, if applicable. When you buy a fishing license, you are not only prepared for a fishing adventure, but you are contributing to the conservation and preservation of the water on which you fish. The Fishing License & Boat Registration Website Plugin offers your customers a direct link from your website to their state agency’s licensing page, allowing them to prepare with everything they need to fish & boat, from home.

3) Places to Boat & Fish Map

We know people are nervous about going too far from home, so now is a great time for them to discover new places to fish and boat close to where they live. The embeddable Take Me Fishing Places to Boat & Fish Map, powered by Fishbrain, will help them locate the best places to fish near them, places to launch a boat, local fishing spots, localized fishing maps, including top spot fishing maps and fishing lake maps. In addition to learning where to boat and fish, users will learn more about species that can be caught in these bodies of water as well as places to buy fishing gear, licenses, equipment, and more.
