You have to have a reputation for being an innovative modder, with a proven track record of completing builds on time and with vision. You have to have the right tools and the right skills. Youre too big of a risk to even be considered at this point. And its not just "getting free stuff" as some say, it is a business relationship, to get their products you have to show them how you will showcase their products, and get people to buy them. Posting on multiple forums is often a requirement, and having a following helps. Honestly, I bet I could count the number of modders on one hand that could get all those things for one build, and probably only then if it were for a corsair event. Honestly, some people get sponsored, then find it is too much work to post on ten forums, create a facebook page, answer all the questions. They find there is barely any time to do modding and they decide to go it alone once again.
But this is OCN, we love amateur modders, and almost all of us are and that is what this community is about. If you think you have what it takes, start small, work your way up, win a MOTM, that will increase you chances of getting you noticed, sell that build, save up for another one, make it bigger and better. Show you can be creative, show you have passion, show youre different from everyone else, even if you dont spend a ton of money. Thats how MyBadOmen got sponsored by NZXT, which led to other sponsorships. Now hes too good for us
Bottom line, the likelihood that any of us will get sponsored is low, but it is possible, and OCN is a great way to learn the basics and from then on, its up to you
