Help for Amateur Stunt Scooter Riders

24 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. 

Check out ScootAm.com for more information and to get involved.

Let us know what you think...

Thank you for posting this article. We hope that ScootAm will be a valuable resource for riders all around the world. :)

Here's our "What Is ScootAm?" video that might help further explain what we do and how riders can use it:



Thanks again!

Hi Oliver
Many Thanks for your contact. We don't currently sponsor. Try the above site ScootAm.com as they have a place to upload clips or check out brands on Facebook like Crisp, Mod etc as they often announce on there when they are looking for new riders to join their teams.
