While I may not be the most amazing, or most experienced rider applying to be Bit of Britain's next top rider, in the grand scheme of a partnership, that isn't necessarily the most important factor in helping promote a company- no matter if it is a big or small one.
Over the past few years, I have been fortunate to learn about the importance of supporting a brand at the shows, on my social media, and in real life. Three years ago, I was selected to be one of the ambassadors for C4 belts. Both that year, and the following year I was able to use my time at shows, my social media, my website, and face to face interactions to help increase awareness of the C4 brand, and both years was the top selling ambassador. While that was exciting for me to know I helped increase their sales as well as helped promote their company, my dedication and determination also led to me being offered the job of "ambassador coordinator". Through this job, I have definitely seen some amazing ambassadors who work HARD in order to help promote a brand they, and I, love, but I have also seen some that are definitely just wanting to "get free stuff"!
To me, I want to support and promote a brand that I would be willing to buy from even without the promise of something free or for receiving any recognition. More and more, lately, I am seeing the importance of supporting a company as a partnership through loyalty, hard work, and by being creative in finding new ways to promote!
Whether I am showing my Intermediate Event Horse, or retraining one of my OTTB's next year again at the Retired Racehorse Project's Thoroughbred Makeover, Bit of Britain is a team that I would love to be a part of, a team I would love to support, and be a part of a marketing partnership that would fully support Bit of Britain and do all I possibly can to help the team grow.
