    this is a bulletin I posted on myspace...


    Like I said I really wanna make this happen. I'm goin for the Hillary method but I unfortunately have no artistic ability so that blocks that off. :(

    If any of you know people it would help greatly.

    i'm an internet whore so plugging the companies wouldn't be a problem.

    Thats fine for fights, but I'm talkin travel/hotel/entry fee on tournies right now. Its a ton cheaper but i can't compete then pay to enter if i win you know?

    Besides, on a sponsorship you're reppin their gear, its not an Oh if I win I'll wear it. their shit goes on my website, my shirt, my shorts etc... so they get free advertising in case of a loss? Doesn't sound right to me. Sponsorships help everyone not just 1 side.

    Ok sponsors want value for money if you are going this route how do you give them this value for money? Value for money means getting their logo/name/product seen by as many potential customers as possible.

    1. Youre an internet whore
    2. You train at ATT
    3. from memory you are decent with a video cam and editing

    The events themselves have minimal coverage for a sponsor you need to exploit the Internet.

    My proposal is start a site with a
    - training/competition log
    - make a few training/highlight/instructional videos
    - Get some biggish names from ATT in some of these videos name drop (for search engine traffic)
    - spam the videos on forums
    = Ideally Id make some videos of your preperation for your next fight (The reality TV contender-TUF-All Access style, this should appeal to even very casual MMA fans.

    Then using the doing it tough trying to follow your dream angle then chuck a support me page with paypal donation button and a contact page. Then once you get the site rolling use it as something to approach potential sponsors.

    I can help out with anything web technical you need a hand with and host it all for you want. Best of luck with it.

    I agree with 2ofdem, you need to offer them more than just wearing a shirt and putting a logo up on a page that most likely doesn't get too much traffic if you really want some sponsors.

    Excellent ideas thank you.

    But how am I gonna go to JZ, or someone "Hey wanna be my tech dummy for this video?"

    Then again I know the Millers are planning to make a tech library that they invited me to get in on maybe I can do it with them...

    Strangely as it seems, there is a regular at my bar who makes indy films and he was asking me if next time i get a fight he can follow me around with a cam and tape my existance..
