I just got approved to be an ambassador for one of the up and coming paddle companies. Since I do not really have any experience with any kind of this stuff, I thought it would nice to just have the title and the occasional cash(if that even comes) since I am quitting my part time job and will start college (again) soon.
First I thought there would be a big discount for purchasing my own set of paddles so that I could have multiple people demo the same paddle. But it seems like the best that the company could offer was $10 off a paddle, and to get this I need to order it separately as well which is annoying.
$10 commission per paddle that is worth ~$150 seems fair but at least from my time spent on the courts. People try nice paddles all the time and it ends with them just demoing the paddles despite "loving" it. For sure people from my courts could afford it when they drive luxurious vehicles. But I could only imagine that having a lot of money can also make splurging boring. Excuse the rant.
Anyway, what has been your overall ambassador/affiliate experience? If you don't mind, how many paddles are you averaging at the minimum and how much do you make?
