Podium Platform is a blog site dedicated to helping amateur athletes obtain the tools and know-how to approach potential sponsors. It’s founder, and main writer Kevin Jagger played a very instrumental role in getting my site up and running. Over the course of a couple months Kevin and I held skype meetings and discussed my plan of attack and what I would need to set up a successful website. Kevin also gave me great tips on how to go after potential sponsors. The skype meetings were terrific, but Podium Platform was such a great tool to guide me through this whole new world of athlete branding and sponsorships!
I would strongly suggest to any athlete looking to get sponsorships to read each and every single blog post on Podium Platform! The information it provides is invaluable and the great part about the site is that a lot of the articles feature Canadian amateur athletes! And i’m not talking only about big name athlete’s either, but any athlete that is doing something unique or fresh in terms of ways to attract sponsorships. As an athlete I’ve learned a indispensable lesson, and it’s that someone will always be better than you. But instead of moping around and sulking, the best way to improve is to approach those who are the top in their fields and ask them what they are doing to be so successful! Podium Platform gives you just that, a platform to ask questions to other athletes and inform yourself on what they are doing, and how they are being successful at funding their amateur careers!
I have encountered nothing but positive response from those that I have approached who have been featured on Podium Platform! Obviously some of us participate in more popular sports than others but we are all in the same boat, all facing similar challenges. From what I’ve seen, every amateur athlete out there is usually willing to lend a helping hand to a fellow athlete because they were once in your shoes. How great is it that you could be very well be opponents on the playing field, but off the field you are all friends trying to help each other out to reach the same goal? The spirit of sport is truly amazing!
MR2S recently had the honor of being featured on Podium Platform for it’s unique way of displaying its sponsorship package. Whenever someone approaches me about MR2S it is usually to compliment on the quality of the site. Something that I can’t take credit for. I have be fortunate to have such an awesome brother who happens to be a graphic designer and also a weekend web programer. Like I’ve said before, if it wasn’t for my brother’s generosity and patience MR2S would have looked like it had been put together by a 5 year old. So I just want to take the time and acknowledge my brother Marc for all the wonderful work he has done over the last couple of months, and for never getting frustrated with my all my questions and demands. What a brother! This one’s all you bud! Thanks for everything!
