Pro/semi pro boarder needed

We are a clothing company who are doing a special promotion next month on our jackets. We need an ambassador to help us represent the brand throughout that month, preferably someone with a lot of events/competitions etc. going on in February so we have plenty to talk about and promote on our social media pages throughout the month.

If chosen, the person will recieve some of our latest clothing, promotion across our social media pages and most likely future work with the company.

To find out more about us head over to our online store Official Drunknmunky Online Store - T-shirts, Clothing, Footwear and Accessories or check out our blog DRUNKNMUNKY

Any recommendations will be much appreciated!

Remember we are looking for someone with a bit of status who will bring us new followers and fans!

Thanks.

ams ride for stickers and clothes. pros ride for contracts for money.

it doesn't sound like you're offering a cash contract so your best bet is to go to snowboard contests/rail jams near you and if you see kids you like offer them your stickers and clothes. bam - sponsored am. you should kick in $ on contest entrance fees at the least.

Well if you want some exposure to the snowboarding world...this would be the opportunity to hit up the core...you got abt 4 weeks to get it together....and if you make it, I'll stop by your tent...but I highly doubt ur ready.

No jackets for Ladies? We ride (and go outside), too.

Well after looking at some of the Men's jackets, if you want to work with snowboarders, you'll need to have jackets with waterproofing. Didn't see anything about that in the product descriptions.

No we only sell hoodies, tees, footwear etc, in the ladies department.

Yes someone else mentioned about the jackets being waterproof, they are just fashion jackets so I'm guessing not suitable for boarding. Maybe it's something we will look at in the future.

Thanks for your help anyway guys!

Okay I thought that maybe some kind of cash contract might be the case, unfortunately I have not been given a budget to work with only the clothing etc. Maybe it's something we will be able to do in the future.

Thanks for your help though!

Let me guess you were "contracted" to run a social media/grass roots marketing campaign for this British company whose logo inspires a mental image of a Monkey jerking off.

Honestly, it sounds like someone had a "brainstorm" and you were told to go out and look into it. Doesn't sound like there's any prep or even any real understanding of the industry.

If you look at this as just putting out a feeler to get an idea of what you need to do, you've made a start. Now go back and make some actual plans. If you look at this as your 'A' game and you don't intend to move forward until you get some action on what you've already done, then I predict major fail.


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
