If you’re interested in a longer term partnership with Black Magic, you can apply to be a part of our Brand Ambassador team. Please keep reading below for more information on what we are looking for, and some common mistakes people make that mean their request is less likely to get a favourable answer.
Just because you use a specific brand’s hooks, doesn’t mean you know the brand. Do your research and find out what their values are.
If they have a Pro Team, or a team of Brand Ambassadors, check them out – understand who you’d be working alongside if you were successful.
Research and understand what their content style is and who they target. Being an influencer doesn’t mean you can just post a few photos on Instagram with a brand tag on it. For many brands, Black Magic included, influencers contribute high value, high quality content which is used across multiple platforms to drive brand awareness, product recognition and the long term goal, sales.
Content can be lots of things – photos, articles, information, guides, videos. Know what sort of content the brand creates, and make sure you showcase how you can contribute.
It’s important to be authentic and show your true self. You don’t need to use fancy words to be professional and be yourself. Make sure you clearly communicate who you are, what you do, why you love fishing, and why you’re approaching a specific brand.
Show that you understand the meaning of a partnership and identify how you would contribute.
If you’ve been lucky enough to secure sponsorship with other brands, let us know who they are and how you’ve contributed.
The more a brand can learn about you from the start, the more likely they are to quickly understand if you’re the right fit. If you’ve done your research you should already have an idea if you’ll fit with their approach and values; but every decision comes down to how a person will fit within the wider team and the brand’s business and marketing objectives.
Black Magic Tackle gear is sold exclusively via a network of over 800 retailers around the world.
