I receive email requests for sponsorship on a daily basis.  Most of the time I get requests from people who aren't fully prepared to apply to become a sponsored athlete, and other times we find our golden candidate. 

So what are we looking for in a Sponsored Athlete?

A sponsorship is a partnership, and since we look to provide our sponsored athletes with supplements, shout-outs, a featured spot on our website, and clothing - in return we are looking for the following:

•  The athlete must be a good fit overall for our brand and carry the physique and "look" 

•  The athlete must have built a social media following, we are looking for candidates with a minimum of 8-10k+ followers on any social media sites, or combined totals from various social sites like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.

•  The athlete must have a competition history or future competitions planned

•  The athlete must have professional photos taken of themselves

In a nutshell, we are looking for ambitious candidates with a great physique, and most importantly we like to see that our candidates are working hard to inspire and motivate everyone around them. Having a substantial social media following is important because as we spread your name, we want you to spread ours.  (*Important note: A lot of candidates send me their Facebook profile as a social media link. However there's a difference between a Facebook PROFILE and a Facebook PAGE. We are looking for candidates with a Facebook page. If you don't understand the difference, do a little reasearch and make sure you link us to your Facebook page, not profile.) 

So what if you DON'T measure up to everything on this list yet? Maybe you don't have the followers, maybe you don't have the professional photos, or maybe your physique just isn't quite there yet. Don't get discouraged. First off, we encourage you to work hard and attain the credentials necessary to apply. We will never rule you out as long as you keep working hard towards your goals. Don't be afraid to reach out to us AGAIN months later when you feel more qualified and let us know how you improved. 

In the meantime if you don't make it to sponsored status, we have a second option for you to become a Boli Nutrition Ambassador.  Click here to find out more about our Ambassador program and how you can become one. 

However if you feel you're ready to apply to become a Sponsored Athlete, send me an email at sponsorship@bolinutrition.com.  Make sure you include your short bio, your competition aspirations & history, and any social media sites you’re apart of. Don’t forget to include any professional or semi-professional photos of yourself, and let us know why you feel you would be a great Sponsored Athlete.

I hope that helps out many of you aspiring athletes out there. Never give up and keep up the good work!
