Topic: Am I an official Street Team member?

I remember signing up for the street team on more than a few occasions, but have never been sent fliers to hand out at shows, or given posters to hang around town. Luckily, street teamers I've been to shows with are armed with fliers that I can help with.

How do I figure out of I'm signed up on the street team list or not? I've been around this forum since 2005, and I'd like to know if there's a glitch or if I need to stick my neck out more to get involved. Just wanting to do my part as a super fan.

thanks!
Nic

Re: Am I an official Street Team member?

I signed up too, quite a while ago. I receive some street team emails, and I've responded, but I've never received any promotional materials.

Promo materials don't get sent automatically.  I email or post my availability to distribute material on the ST FB page a couple of months ahead of my local show.

Re: Am I an official Street Team member?

So what was the outcome? i've signed up as well but not heard anything yet

Re: Am I an official Street Team member?

I emailed Eric, and in my response he asked me to pass out fliers for the next show in a few months.

Moving forward, I plan to contact them to volunteer my services passing out fliers whenever a local show is upcoming. There apparently wasn't a huge response from the Detroit street teamers so my inquiry was welcomed.

Re: Am I an official Street Team member?

Nic FWIW IMHO you have been more than an official Street Team Member for a loooong time just by your sharing the joy with others.
Official Street Team activities are not always obvious but in recent times have been mostly as you found out, helping out locally when they need you . it is not alwasy needed etc. but there is the infinite number of unofficial things you can do to help more folks learn about Joe. just be respectful etc.

and if anyone writes to Eric and does not get a reply, try again and realize he may just be that busy as they all multi-task over there but also they may not have anything to do at that current time

Re: Am I an official Street Team member?

WOW - got a box FULL of cards to advertise the Det. show 4-18. I'll be taking these everywhere I go until they're gone.

Re: Am I an official Street Team member?

does seem like the Street Team thing has gone dormant though
