The joys of being recognized for what you do. From running a sponsor log to helping Stevesmi host our podcast... and today??
So a few weeks back I was approached by a gym buddy I've mentioned. I did his wedding pics and he's competed on stage, is a judge for as federation and even, among the rest of his Iron Game CV, had a lab all of his very own if only briefly some years ago. He'd been approached by a fella he'd worked with who wanted to resurrect a company he owned. And my name came up as someone to work with. Finally, in today's post, a package arrived. Hoody and a t-shirt. If this does what it's supposed to do I'll be getting a package every month.
These kinds of deals aren't uncommon. But I've seen people kinda f**k it up. As with ANY sponsor type deal you (and they) get as much out of this as is put in. What the company wants is not, as you might think, you using 47 hashtags or posting EVERY DAMN WHERE. It's engagement and value. You're better with one good post a week that works well than 10 a day that annoy people.
So now I'll be banging that drum on Insta and Facebook. Watch out for a couple of photos (I wont go crazy I promise)
