We may ship you whatever you are requesting right away, or we may ask that you pay a little or do a little more promotion. The more you share your love for The Spinsterz via social media and word of mouth, the more The Spinsterz will love you back!
What happens after I apply?
We will go through all of the applications and then pick a number of finalists. If you are selected as one of our finalists, you will be notified and we will also announce who has been selected in our closed Facebook page.
If I am selected as a finalist, what happens then?
If you are selected as a finalist, we will then go into a sponsorship trial period. During this time, you will act as if you are a Spinsterz Sponsored Artist and show us what you are made of. It’s like one of those obstacle course races—have you put in the work to make it to the finish line?
This trial period will last for a period of 30 days.
Let the tryouts begin!
We will give you a coupon code that you can post on your social channels of choice (Instagram and Facebook highly preferred)
- When someone clicks on your unique code, they will get 10% off their purchase.
- You will be rewarded $5 (store credit) per sale that you send our way!
- We will feature each and every one of you on our Instagram page during this time and give a shout out that will help to boost your following.
- After the 30 days, we will take a look at your performance statistics individually and come to some conclusions on who we will be offering sponsorships to.
- Even if you are not selected we will still give you $5 in store credit for each sale that you ended up sending our way via your unique coupon code during this trial period.
Bonus Info and FAQ
There are all sorts of things that we are looking for in a potential sponsee and we’re going to give you some hints and see if you end up being the bright shining star we are looking for.
Does production quality matter? – Yes. YouTube has a variety of awesome tutorials, and with the quality of cellphone cameras these days, it’s TOTALLY possible to make something awesome with an iPhone and a glass of water! (No, do NOT put the phone in the glass of water…)
I’ve only got an iPhone to film my video…is that ok? – I shall answer this question with a question. Is the iPhone quality better than that point and shoot you had 8 years ago?
I didn’t get picked as a finalist. Does that mean the game is over? We are always watching, waiting, and wanting to reward those that show us the love. If now is not the time, later might be!
“I was a professional sponsored snowboarder with Burton Snowboards for 7 years. At the time I was sponsored, I was the youngest person EVER sponsored by Burton. Do you think that I worked my ass off to earn my sponsorship, trained all summer to ride hard all winter, gave it my all and everything, lived-breathed-slept snowboarding? – I sure as fuck did!!! How bad do you want this?” -Brandon H. -Founder of The Spinsterz
