Interested in joining our team?
Ballin’ on a Budget ATX (baller) was started by Terry Fleming as a Facebook page to post free events around Austin to friends and followers. Baller has been run by Terry, Dominic, and Traci for the last several years, posting at least one free or almost free event or deal on a daily basis. We occasionally post other things. We focus on free music, food, drinks, art, and film. Something fun or cheap. We also have a Instagram and Twitter we do not utilize as much as we should.
A few years back a friend of baller gave us discounted hosting for a website and we bought the domain ballerATX.com which is also the username for our fb page (www.facebook.com/ballerATX). If you look at our website we try to post one thing a month, but would love to work with new people who like to write and cover events. Our website has had around 750k hits a year each year for the last 4 years. Our heaviest traffic comes during SxSw where we post a master list of free RSVP events during the festival. Currently from Oct 2018-Sept 2019 we have had 933,369 hits.
We are looking for like minded people that would like to help out in some way, either helping share events on social media or on ballerATX.com by blogging about local events.
Social Media: On the fb page we try to post once a day but with our busy lives, we miss some great local events. We post a lot of stuff day of, but are looking to change it up and get help to post a few days in advance when possible. We are also looking to start posting more to Instagram and trying to get the baller twitter back on track.
If you are looking to share free events on social media, we would give you moderator access and would work with each other on what works the best with everyone.
Website/ blogging: This is for people who want to write about events. We are looking for someone who likes to go to local or nationwide events, food, travel, etc., and would like to write about their experiences for baller. For paid events you would apply for media credentials and basically in exchange for pre and post event coverage, you get into concerts and paid events for free. Basically you are working your way in.
If you are looking to help us out with our website, we would hook you up with a @ballerATX.com email and you are freelance media blogger, emailing events you want to apply for press credentials. We would preapprove anything you want to apply for so there is no overlap by any of us. Also if you are a current blogger and would like to share anything you have written in the past on our website, let us know. Either way you always get full credit for anything you write.
We work on a zero dollar budget, and this is NOT a paid gig. This is an opportunity to build your resume and be part of a community who enjoys. If you find a way to make money while working with us that is great, just let us know. We also occasionally find ways to get paid while also doing something that benefits the website or social media. We sometimes cross promote events in exchange for free tickets, or ticket giveaways.
If this sounds like something you are interested in doing, please complete the form below. Thanks. Dominic.
