Carlo Traversi Discusses the Future of the Climbing Industry

by Tom Markiewicz on February 11, 2009

Carlo Traversi discusses the future of the climbing industry and the different types of pro climbers interacting with the companies and the community.

At this point in time, VERY few climbing companies have any clue what they are doing beyond making a decent product that sells enough to keep them afloat. I believe that much of this is due to BAD marketing techniques and BLATANT misuse of key athletes on their climbing teams. Hint to climbing companies-stop doing the marketing by yourself and hire someone that knows whats up.

In the past, I’ve commented on the archaic marketing from most climbing companies. I’ll have more commentary on this topic soon, but Carlo’s post (and the comments) is a must-read and quite thought provoking.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
