Modern Companion 2021 Model Application
Thanks for your interest in our model search. Modern Companion is a pet company that caters to all pets from all over. Please read ALL of the following before you apply.
What does being a model for us mean?
As a model, you get exclusive access to the other-side of Modern Companion. You see the hard work, support, and dedication. You become part of a team that feels like a family. You get to see ideas and upcoming releases before anyone else. You get to help influence our brand.
All selected models will get invited to an affillate portal where they will sign up with their information and be provided a unique link to share with their friends, family, and social accounts. QR codes are also available with other ways to share your unique link.
Models will get a 5% commission on all orders placed through their affiliate link and can only redeem as store credit. If a model shows a positive attitude, creativity to the brand, has created referrals or commissions over $50; they will be eligible to upgrade to Brand Ambassador status. Models must reach one commission per year to stay within the program.
They will also get a special 10% discount code off ALL products to use on their own orders.
Depending on the amount of dedication and ideas you show, we tend to move models up to brand reps at any time.
There is no time frame of how long a model is a model for us. We don't believe in getting rid of models to bring in new ones. As long as you keep up with the requirements and believe in our brand, you are a part of the MC team forever.
Who do we look for?
We look for PUBLIC accounts that are actively interacting and supporting our brand. You must have an active account that is 50% dedicated to pet-related things or is a pet account.
In order to apply, you must-have made at least one purchase from us before in the last 2 months. This means our own products. Not toys, chews, etc. NO EXCEPTIONS. Please do not apply yet if you have not purchased from us before. You will be asked to upload photos of your pet in our product!
This assures us that you have tried, tested, and trust the quality of our products and feel good about sharing it with others. Remember, we're a small business made up of a very small team. If you are looking for free products or just a flashy model code, you have come to the WRONG place. We're trying to build an awesome brand filled with love and community. Through the ups and downs of running a small business we need you to be here for us and our brand.
We don't care about how many products you have bought or how many followers you have or that you may have just found out about us. We care about the people and pets behind the account. Are you creative? Are you passionate about pets? Do you feel like you can influence our brand? Are you consistently taking good photos of your pet.
Can you commit time to our brand? Just to set the record straight. We get the human behind the account has a life. No one can ever be 100% on top of everything all the time. We sure aren't. Life happens, and we get that, as long as you don't ghost on us without reason, we are cool.
What are the requirements?
Our requirements are simple:
- You must be over the age of 21.
- You must be posting 3-4 times a month about pet-related things. These posts are things that aren't about our brand at all. We love to see that you are engaging with your followers.
- You must be able to post at LEAST once a month of your pet(s) in our brand
- The pictures you take must aesthetic and creative. At this time we are only looking for aesthetically pleasing accounts that can show our brand in the best possible way.
- You have to be willing to take photos with you in them occasionally.
- You must be participating in the slack group chat to an extent. Feedback is essential.
- You must be interacting with our posts/stories on a weekly basis. We don't need you to share every post or story all the time.
We are all about supporting other businesses related to ours. We believe there is space for everyone in the industry. We have no rules about models being models for similar companies. We encourage you to support and model for companies who you believe in. We do ask that things we share with our models are not discussed or used outside of us, unless with specific permission.
Because we want to show new ideas to our models, the model representing us mustn't be interested in starting their own company that could be remarkably similar to ours (in the pet accessories) We love seeing you're creative ideas. Honesty and transparency are super important to us. Since there is no end date on a model term, we may have our models sign a non-compete form for a set time to allow them to start their own similar company down the line if they choose so.
Being inspired by one's company is super encouraged and admired, but copying one's company isn't. If you're looking to start your own and would love some help, we are more willing to share some resources on starting a business in the pet industry. Just not through our model program.
If you feel like being a model for our company is right for you, please apply below. The deadline to apply is Aug 31st, 2021.
