Looking to get sponsored?
We get hundreds of sponsorship applications a day, how can you make yourself stand out from the rest? We consider sponsorships to be a partnership between parties that will be mutually beneficial. The sponsorship will help to support you but in return we expect that you will help to support us by promoting the store and living the SCS Lifestyle.
Sponsorship requirements are tricky because there is no cookie cutter formula that can help us determine who would be a good fit for Team SCS. Every applicant has their own strengths and weaknesses and can not meet one requirements but excel in other categories. There are three ways for someone to get a sponsorship -- through a popular YouTube channel, through good WCA rankings, or through both. In regards to YouTube channels, we are generally looking for channels that average 500 views or more on majority of their videos. For example, if you have 10 videos posted, you would need to have at least 500 views on 8/10 videos. Another important thing to keep in mind is that your channel needs to pertain mostly to cubing. It doesn't do us much good to sponsor a YouTube channel that is not seen by our target audience! WCA times are where things get tricky seeing as there are so many events and times are continuously dropping. We usually like to see our Team SCS members finish in the top 5 of their favorite events but this can vary depending on the event and other stats.
Should you submit an application?
It takes us a lot of time to review sponsorship applications since we want to make sure that we thoroughly evaluate each applicant. If you clearly do not meet any of our requirements at this time, we ask that you please refrain from submitting an application until you do. This way, we are able to devote more time to those who have a good chance of making it onto Team SCS. If you currently don't meet the requirements, don't worry! Keep up the good work and we are confident that you will someday; and when you do meet the requirements, we will have a spot waiting for you on Team SCS.
How to submit an application
To submit a sponsorship application, please submit an application and be sure to provide valid links to your WCA profile and / or YouTube channel. It is also important to provide a brief caption letting us know why you feel that you are a good fit for Team SCS.
