Everyone is looking for a sponsorship. Many people bring a lot to the table. Some of these folks know how to leverage what they bring to actually benefit the company they are courting. It is only a select few of these athletes that actually find their way into spokesperson positions. As you can imagine, it is not an easy position to attain and there are many worthy athletes that unfortunately are unable to land the coveted spot.
All that being said, it is imperative that you understand the power of your social media presence if you want to be one of those few that get the position. Your presence online and your ability to live up to it in person WILL MAKE or BREAK YOU! We have recently had a couple of articles here on MensPhysique.com teaching you how to land that sponsorship, so I won’t keep harping on specifics at this point. What I will do is share with you a real life HYSTERICAL attempt at getting sponsored.
Recently a Facebook email came to a supplement company regarding an athlete looking to get sponsored. To the immediate left of his message to check out his fan page was this picture: (The photo has been cropped to hide the identity of this hopeful athlete)
As you can imagine, this is not the way for this athlete to get sponsored. He will be hard pressed to get picked up by any supplement company until he learns to value his Personal Online Brand.
Don’t make the same mistake. Be sure that you are putting your metaphorical “best foot forward” online, if you are looking to become a sponsored athlete.
