We LOVE to give back to our loyal fans and customers! However when it comes to giveaways and our customers we take privacy very seriously. We will NOT post winner's names on Instagram, Facebook, etc. It is the individual account holders decision whether or not they want this shared. If they post a pic of their gift, we will potentially repost it. So when a giveaway is completed, please don't ask who won. Just keep an eye on our account and you may see a post of a particular winner.
Like we mentioned in the first part of our "Blocked on Instagram" post, we don't want fair weather fans or bandwagon followers. We have an app that automatically blocks any account that unfollows. Most of the time you can get your account reinstated after a 30 day suspension, however if you unfollow a second time you are blacklisted.
Were you blocked on Instagram?
There are two possible reasons you were blocked; either you unfollowed or you used inappropriate language on one of our posts.
The reason we block for unfollowing is that we don't want fair weather fans on our account. Plain and simple. If you would like us to review your account for a possible reinstatement, please email us at email@example.com. In your email briefly explain why you think you were blocked and we will look into the matter for you. If we do reinstate your account we will let you know.
So since posting the above changes to our programs, we thought we should clarify a few things.
1. Just because you don't qualify to become sponsored doesn't mean it will never happen. By becoming an Ambassador you are taking the first steps to become sponsored. You could do great things and we will waive the 6k minimum on followers.
2. Becoming an Ambassador or being sponsored is not a right, its a privilege. We only want reputable people and accounts that represent our company in a positive light.
3. Figured we needed to say this again, but NOTHING in life is free, so don't ask for a handout!!
If we missed anything please feel free to comment here and we will answer your concerns or questions.
It’s time consuming and a little repetitive to answer the same questions every day, but it's great to hear from all our fans! If you tag us in a picture wearing an Asylum shirt or showing off your wax we’ll see it. If you shout us out on your account in a video you made we’ll watch it. What other companies can promise you can speak directly to the Staff almost around the clock? That being said, what is the main question we receive each day, over and over? Can you sponsor me? Can I become an Ambassador?
We decided to give everyone the answer to this question and give you some tips as to what we are looking for in sponsored accounts and Red Chip Ambassador accounts. Do not ask to become an Ambassador or become sponsored if you are not following us!! Also, unless you have at least 6k followers you will only be eligible to become an ambassador. If you do have at least 6k followers and want to become sponsored please email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do your research before you reach out to us. Go to our website and look around. Learn about the different wax formulas we have. Read some customer reviews. Get familiar with our brand.
Don’t ask for free products! Nothing in life is free. You have to earn everything, one way or another. Bauer doesn’t pay the same to their A List stars as they do to the 4th liners that rep their brand. It’s a scale based on skill level, marketability, popularity, and exposure. The same goes for Instagram accounts.
Buy some wax and start promoting it on your account. We notice ALL the shout outs we get, and we take note of the most creative and impressive videos/pics that feature our products. Once you are sponsored or become a Red Chip Ambassador you will start earning bonus Elite Points towards free products. Check out "Elite Rewards" on our website for more details.
A good example would be @hattrickhockeycompany – she bought her first tins of wax and started working on some sick trick videos, and pics showing our brand. She also took some overseas and gave it to some of her new friends! It pays to work hard and create good content on your page!
Being an Ambassador or being sponsored by Asylum sets you apart from all the other companies. Asylum Twig Wax formulas are one of a kind and can’t be duplicated by any other company because we have a sole provider who ONLY sells to us our secret ingredient. This is a lifetime contract solely for Asylum Hockey Outfitters!
Benefits of Being an Asylum Red Chip Ambassador:
-Official Lucky Asylum Red Chip Poker Chip
-Personal shout outs/reposts on our 6k+ follower Instagram account to help you gain followers.
-Discounts on future orders while you earn your way to free wax, antifog, and apparel.
-Double Elite Points on your second purchase.
-Fast Track to higher Elite Status
(To qualify as a Red Chip Ambassador you must make a purchase)
(All current sponsored accounts are grandfathered and do not need to change their accounts. However their benefits remain the same unless they request a new sponsorship and meet the new requirements)
Due to most customers purchasing Protect Formula in place of Goalie Zen and others purchasing Original Formula in place of our Pond Formula we will be discontinuing the making of these two formulas.
If you REALLY want either we can do special custom batches of both but will not offer them on the website any longer. In order for a special batch to be put together a minimum of a 6 pack will be required for the purchase. If you find yourself in that position and want to order please email us at email@example.com and we can accommodate your request.
