Many groups have discussed or been involved in efforts to generate a "marketing" campaign.

I would like to lay out a process where non-profit recreation groups can change their current strategy (or on-going efforts) in order to become more effective.

Marketing is getting your name/logo recognized in a broad segment of the market. As such, a successful campaign attains name recognition outside their field. The entire marketing aspect encompasses two different aspects: individual members and businesses. That requires a two prong marketing strategy. One geared to individual members and another geared to supporting business members. 

Okay, so what? You already have that. But, are you effective?

A lot of time is spent on individual membership issues and I will not dwell on that effort as that requires a different marketing approach. However, it is a critical component of a successful marketing campaign.

My focus will be on the supporting business membership aspects.

For the sake of a starting point, let us say that Organization Broken Winch intends to increase name recognition as a major advocate for recreation. A measure of knowing that they are succeeding is they attain name recognition outside the traditional 4x4/OHV community.
