Synopsis:

We are looking for golf professionals and/or recreational golfers to produce short golf videos for use on our social media pages. These videos could include content like a product review, a tip for a specific product and how you’d recommend using it, or a promotional video for a specific product, etc. These videos would be recorded at a location of your choice and then sent electronically to be used on social media and product campaigns.


In your video submission, we’d like to see you demonstrate your promotional skills by pitching us your favorite golf product: why do you love it; what makes it great; what has it done for you; discuss the features; why should someone buy it; what kind of golfers was this product made for; how many strokes is this product going to save potential customers, etc. Imagine you are Arron Oberholser and this is your version of the C3i. Have fun with it! We want to see your personality shine through in your submission. Just let your video flow off the cuff; try not to be stiff or too rehearsed, we are looking for a relatable, authentic personality that will resonate with golfers. 


If your submission is selected for call back interviews, we will reach out to you to schedule those. Once final selection is made, this would be an on-going opportunity to create content for one of the top independent golf retailers in the industry. We reach hundreds of thousands of subscribers daily and believe firmly in developing talent that our amateur golfers trust as a go-to source for golf products and lessons. 


While we prefer talent to be located in Northern Virginia and the DC Metro, we are open to talent from across Virginia, DC, and Maryland, and we will consider exceptional applicants across the U.S. 


An ideal candidate would be fluent in golf, have a love of video creation, and have experience in direct response sales. Above all, we are looking for a candidate who plays golf on the regular and who has a personality that comes across through their video submission. This is not a one-time filming, but an ongoing project where we’d reach out to you throughout the year to create content. 


If you currently have a social media presence related to playing or coaching golf, please feel free to send any links that are relevant to your experience.
