Sports is a universal language that everyone understands regardless of gender, race or religion, and as a global company, OutdoorMaster is looking to be involved in the sponsorship of many events, professional athletes and amateur athletes across a wide spectrum of sports.
We are looking to sponsor individual athletes, events and teams in cycling, skiing, snowboarding, athletics, yoga, running, crossfit and body building (and possible other sports) in the United States and Europe. We are keen on individual and teams with a unique story to tell, so we are always open to hearing your story.
1. About OutdoorMaster Sponsorships
We look at our sponsorships as bringing another person into the OutdoorMaster family and expect that before you even approach us that you already have a great passion for our products. On the same note, we like to develop a mutually beneficial relationship with an event or individual sponsorship. Please consider your willingness to commit to this type of relationship before applying.
Though we’d like to sponsor everyone that submits an application we can only do a set number of sponsorships per year. We are honored that you would consider OutdoorMaster as a potential sponsor and will respond to your request within 90 days, if we are considering your sponsorship.
Because we are a growing company, our sponsorship budget is given as “in kind” product support rather than cash funds. Quite honestly, we think our products rank right up there with cash and we hope you agree.
2. Sponsorship FAQ
What type of events does OutdoorMaster sponsor?
We sponsor many kinds of events…triathlons, running, cycling, rowers, non-athletic, you name it. Events that are centered around a cause or a non-profit entity that is tied to our values of an active, healthy lifestyle is an ideal fit. If your event maintains a blog, Facebook and/or Twitter profile for the event, we want to see that you are actively updating it.
What kind of exposure does OutdoorMaster expect in return?
We look for the most visibility from our involvement as possible, particularly online. This includes social media interaction, text links, logos on websites, e-mail inclusion, printed inclusion, etc.
What type of individuals do OutdoorMaster sponsor?
We typically sponsor professional athletes but will consider anyone who is reaching for their goals that appear to be a “good fit.” More importantly we expect that you are a self-promoter. Having a website, blog, Facebook or Twitter profile is just a start and if you have one or all of these they should be updated at least weekly.
What does OutdoorMaster expect in return?
We expect you to keep us updated on what’s going on in your world. This includes sending us your calendar of races / events, 2 blogs for OutdoorMasters website a year, 1 monthly post on OutdoorMasters Facebook and/or Twitter, 2 hi-res photos for OutdoorMaster to use at their discretion, testimonials for website and catalog use, OutdoorMaster logo on your uniform and website and staying on OutdoorMaster message when referring to brand. Basically we want you to be proud of being sponsored by OutdoorMaster!
What does OutdoorMaster look for in an sponsorship? We look for a sponsorship to be impactful and lasting. We feel like those we sponsor will be part of the family. So what if you’re the most amazing trail runner to ever put on running shoes! Do you play nice with others? Are people excited to be around you? Do you leave the ego at home? Do you return e-mails and phone calls? This stuff matters to us.
