Discipline in Sponsoring Part 2: Up-to-date Profile

19. April 2021

When was the last time you updated your profile?

You can create a profile very quickly at become-a-pro. But in order to give the sponsors an impression of you, the profile should also be completely filled out and always up to date. Your profile is a kind of replacement for your application and you certainly wouldn’t send an application with just a picture and your name, would you? Below you will find valuable tips on how to keep your profile up to date.

On become-a-pro you have the possibility to reach several cool sponsors at the same time without having to send out various applications. Therefore, present yourself like in an application: tell something about yourself, possibly also about competitions in which you have participated or will participate, what makes you special and what kind of sponsorship you are looking for. In addition, you should upload photos and videos of yourself so that sponsors can get a first impression of you. And last but not least, connect your social media channels to your profile.

Once the profile is completed, all you have to do is keep it up to date, in other words: always update it when there are new developments and news to add. This is the only way you can stand out from the competition and grab a popular sponsorship deal.

Our top 3 tips for an up-to-date, engaging profile:

  1. Schedule a date at least once a month to work on your profile. For example, always at the beginning, middle or end of the month. On that day you add all the news, such as a new trick you learned or improved, about a contest you participated in or maybe even succeeded in, and of course also new videos and photos. Eventually, your skills will be shown in more current shots.
  2. Don’t just keep your become-a-pro profile up to date, but also show what you are capable of and how you are developing your skills via your social media channels. This will generate more reach, help you build a community, and increase your profile score. The higher your score is, the more likely you are to be noticed by potential sponsors.
  3. Keep an eye on become-a-pro’s newsletters and posts. Our platform is constantly evolving, so in the future we will add more and more updates that may also be helpful for you and your profile. For example, soon you will be able to connect your profile to TikTok as well, which will enable you to achieve a higher score in your profile.

These 3 tricks will definitely help you to keep your profile up to date and therefore catch the sponsors’ attention.

And now it’s time to update your profile 😉
