We are so honored you would like to be more involved with Bewildher.
When we first began building our slow-fashion brand we had no idea so many wonderful women would be reaching out to collaborate with us. In fact, it became something very challenging to cope with. Our wish is to work with all you rad ladies, but alas we do not have the budget and resources to be sending everyone payment and product up front. Picking and choosing and crossing our fingers we made the right choice left us with bad vibes, so instead we've carefully crafted our ADVENTURISTA PARTNERSHIPS PROGRAM to create fair opportunity for all to work with us.
We may be a small brand, but we stand by our values! A few things we firmly believe in are creating fair opportunity, taking ownership of our own success story, and being inclusive. Our ADVENTURISTA PARTNERSHIPS PROGRAM creates fair opportunity for all to benefit from the effort they are willing to put in!
To ensure partnerships are in alignment with our brand values, we do have some criteria. Adventurista's must:
- Have a verifiable Instagram or Facebook following, or
- Be a health and fitness professional with verifiable classes or courses they're teaching, and
- Have read our slow-fashion page and are a supporter of the slow-fashion movement, and
- A willingness to represent the Bewildher brand in the manner described in our "soft selling approach", below.
WHAT WE OFFER:
Approved Adventurista's will receive 50% OFF the full retail price of Bewildher products, for personal or promotional use only*. They can then create their own unique referral code to share with their followers, clients, readers and viewers. The code will take 10% off the users first purchase, plus earn the adventurista 10% in cash payment or store credit. Adventurista's can sign-in to the referral tracking software to view their leads, referrals and total earnings.
*We reserve the right to refuse large orders and orders containing sizes other than usual for that adventurista. Promotional use, such as a giveaway, must be approved by Bewildher.
WHAT WE EXPECT:
In exchange for receiving our wholesale price on products and the opportunity to earn referral commission, we expect at least two of the following per item purchased: (for example: one Instagram post and one Instagram story.)
- ONE SOCIAL FEED POST, within 15 days of delivery. The post must clearly showcase the product, however we believe in soft-selling and discourage product-pushing posts. The written content does not need to be about Bewildher, however if you wish to write a review, please ensure it is heartfelt and of genuine interest to your followers. Our only requirement is that you tag @bewildher in the photo and put apparel by @bewildher at the bottom of the written content. Be sure to include your discount code to earn referral commission!

The videos could be a product review, yoga flow, at home or gym strength training moves or tips for runners. When we post your videos, we will share your discount code for you to earn referral commission!
FAIRNESS, TAKING OWNERSHIP AND BEING INCLUSIVE:
In order for us to say "yes" to all applications that meet our criteria, we must also ask for YOUR understanding that all adventurita's must purchase their first products and earn future products and/or payment. No upfront freebies, 'cuz we can't afford it for everyone and then we'd have to pick-n-choose, and that wouldn't be fair!
Typically, product reps ARE required to purchase their own samples and take self-responsibility for the risks and rewards involved with promoting a brand and their products.
To be completely transparent with you, from our end we see our program as self-weeding. We know only those individuals who truly believe in our brand and in their own ability to represent us will sign-up, and that's exactly who we want to work with; empowered women willing to take risks and work smart for what they truly want and believe in.
We encourage you to "softly" introduce our products to your followers, by simply being yourself while wearing and writing about them. Nobody likes a hard sell, so please carefully consider the needs and desires of your audience before presenting our brand. A great way to softly promote our brand is to wait for those interested in what you're wearing to ask about the product before sharing detailed information. This works great whether in person or on social media!
WHY BE AN ADVENTURISTA?
We've considered some scenarios for you:
- SOCIAL MEDIA: Whether your a pro or amateur athlete, fashion stylist or slow-fashion advocate, if you have a large and engaged social media following, they're likely looking to you for tried and trusted product recommendations. A general sales goal is 1% of your target audience, so if a post get's 100 likes ideally 1 person will make a purchase. Improve your engagement and your social media following could be your new side hustle!
- INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS: While teaching a yoga class in your Bewildher product a student might ask "where did you get those?" and make a purchase. If they do, you just bumped up your hourly teaching wage!
- BLOGGERS: Recounting your fitness journey or travel adventures can be a labor of love, but what if some of your readers took an interest in your terrific tights and shopped our website? All those words will become that much more worth it!
