Miesha Tate Looks for Sponsors on Twitter
Why would you use Twitter to get attention when you can use it to get paid?
That is a rhetorical question that Miesha Tate must have been pondering before the decision to use the social media tool to attract sponsors came to her.
On July 26, Tate posted the following on he Twitter account:
Hey if any1 wants to potentially sponsor me for my upcoming bout Aug 18th hit up BryanCaraway pls
The bout Tate refers to in the Tweet is an upcoming showdown opposite Julie Kedzie, which will be part of the undercard for a Ronda Rousey-Sarah Kaufman main event. Tate is looking to rebound from a first round submission loss at the hand of Rousey, which came back in March of this year.
Tate's Tweet has garnered a few inquiries (visible on her Twitter page), as well as multiple recommendations that she should look specifically to Playboy for some support.
No word yet on whether Tate will take the advice to heart.
If the call for sponsors seems a bit shameless, consider that many athletes have made similar pleas in the past. Twitter just happens to be a bit more public than most avenues of solicitation, making it a double edged sword—it will probably earn some eye rolls, but it will probably work as well.
How will we gauge the success of Tate's electronic canvassing? By seeing how gaudily decorated her trunks and top are when she enters the cage on August 18.
