We know that being a skater is a passion and everyone who skates would love to be sponsored by a company! HOUKIE is just getting off the ground with our product and we want to eventually sponsor skaters Around the World!
Early in 2017, we will have everyone interested in getting sponsored by us send us a video of them skating and telling us why you want sponsored. We will choose skaters to sponsor at that time.
We will be looking to sponsor skaters of all talent ranges. Our main requirement is that you love to skate and are trying to improve daily. Promote our products as well as promote the love of skating and the betterment of the skateboarding community.
All sponsored skaters will get Houkie Sponsored Skater business cards that they can hand out to everyone to let them know they are sponsored by us!
Here is a pic of what the business card will look like. Flow sponsored skaters will have their name printed on the card!!
- SHOP SPONSORSHIP
We will be looking to sponsor a large number of skateboarders who are at any skill level. The minimum requirements will be waived for this sponsorship. The Shop sponsored skater must make a continuous effort to improve their skating abilities and properly represent our company and product in the skating community. The Shop level sponsored skaters will receive discounted prices on equipment and apparel from us in return for a commitment to use that merchandise or equipment at public skate parks or local competitions.
- FLOW SPONSORSHIP
We will be looking to sponsor 50 skateboarders who have a higher skill level than most. There will be minimum requirements for this level. (Skill level for this sponsorship has not yet been determined…. when we are ready to launch sponsoring, we will advise of the skill level needed) Flow sponsored skaters will receive free merchandise from us for their continued improvement in skating, proper representation of our company, and involvement in skating/community related activities.
***Flow Sponsored skaters for HOUKIE will be paid a 10% commission for any sales from the HOUKIE webstore (www.houkie.com) that are shipped to the area the sponsored skater lives in. This is a bonus for promoting our product and to say thank you for your hard work and great repping of our company.
- AMATEUR SPONSORSHIP
We will also be looking to sponsor 5 skaters in this category of sponsorship. There is a higher level of skating talent that will be required for this level of sponsorship. The amateur sponsored skaters will receive free merchandise and occasional monetary payments to a skateboarder who has made specific time and effort commitments to the sponsor. This may involve short-term reciprocal arrangements related to specific events or competitions or longer-term commitments on a contractual basis.
**SPONSORSHIP IS EARNED AND THE SPONSORED SKATER MUST PARTICIPATE IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN THEIR SPONSORSHIP STATUS. SPONSORED SKATERS WILL HAVE MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS THEY MUST MAINTAIN, SO IF YOU ARE JUST LOOKING FOR FREE OR DISCOUNTED STUFF WITHOUT SHOWING THE LOVE OF SKATING THEN OUR SPONSORSHIP IS NOT GOING TO BE FOR YOU.**
