Top Online Firearms Video Producer’s “SootchZone” Channel to Launch on GetZone.com in early April
Atlanta, GA – April 10, 2018. GetZone.com, the leading digital platform for hunters and shooting sports enthusiasts, is pleased to welcome Don Porter (aka “Sootch00”) and announces the dedicated “SootchZone” channel.
Sootch00, known for “fun gun reviews and sensible survival” content, recently announced YouTube’s plans to terminate his channel. His new agreement with GetZone.com provides his 640,000 subscribers with uninterrupted access his content, now on the SootchZone Channel on GetZone.com.
Sootch00’s banned YouTube content will move to GetZone.com, along with his library of “Best Of” videos. He will also continue to produce new content that will be available on GetZone.com.
“When it comes to expressing traditional American Values on the web, you won’t find a better place than GetZone.com. We’re in the battle of our lives to preserve the 2nd Amendment and Hunting Rights. We needed a family friendly platform to get the message of Freedom out there and GetZone.com is like coming Home,” said Don Porter/Sootch.
“Sootch is an industry insider who has spent the last decade producing some of the most viewed firearms related reviews on the Internet,” said Sammy Reese, Editorial Director of GetZone.com. “His content, principles and approach aligns well with GetZone.com’s strategy to provide viewers with best in class reviews, training and original video series.”
Don Porter has been a Gun and Gear Reviewer for the past 10 years. Getting his start on YouTube, he has a total of 1 Million Subscribers on two separate Video Channels, Sootch00 Gun Review and the Sensible Prepper. He has a Passion for Firearms, Self Defense and Protecting the 2nd Amendment.
“The changes at YouTube are forcing manufacturers to get smarter about product videos and marketing. Series like Ruger’s American New Shooter Academy, Finding Fearless and others become more important. We are doing product integration into self-defense, training, etc., not just traditional reviews,” said Sammy Reese, Editorial Director of GetZone.com.
YouTube continues its assault on the Firearms industry by banning some firearms demonstration videos and shutting down channels that promote the sale of firearms. Over the past few weeks since YouTube announced their new policies, GetZone.com has struck multiple deals to feature content creators who have been impacted. In addition to this content, GetZone.com will be adding further social feedback functionality to the site, moderated by users, to give the firearms community a place to communicate.
