Help for Amateur Stunt Scooter Riders
19 CommentsFriday, 18 January 2013 | Stunt Scooters
Getting brand sponsorship as an amateur scooter rider can be pretty tough, especially because many scooter blogs often won’t post content about amateur up-and-coming riders. To get your name known is the first step, yet until you are known it can be difficult to get content delivered to your target audience to promote yourself.
A possible solution?
Two guys called Steve Poole and Kenny Carlile (AKA Scooterdad.com) have come up with a get idea to help with this dilemma. ScootAm.com was launched last year with the aim of providing a totally free resource for amateur and beginner riders to promote themselves and gain exposure. ScootAm provides a voice for any young riders that are endeavouring to reach more viewers with their promotional content, and are not yet making it big in the sport.
How Does it work?
On their website, freestyle riders can upload photo, videos, competition results, and other announcements without even needing to create an account. Scooter riders can then ‘share’ their ScootAm page on social network sites such as Twitter and Facebook. For safety, promos and comments are moderated by the ScootAm staff and this helps to ensure that the site remains positive and hate-free.
Not only a place for riders to promote themselves, this website also then becomes a quality pool for company scouts seeking out new talent, a ”one stop shop” if you like. As riders progress they can update their pages to demonstrate their new skills and abilities. Although the creators of ScootAm are based in the USA promos can be submitted by anyone and they currently feature riders from all around the world.
