Hello BANGS Ambassadors!!

Upcoming Program Changes
  • We are now aligning terms with months of activity! For example our upcoming term will be called April - June Term 2019.
  • Stickers and Laces are now covered fully by your BA code if you buy a pair of shoes!! Your BA code code applies to any order value of $14 USD or more.
  • We have transitioned into an “opt out” vs “opt in” strategy to move from term to term! If you have posted on all your Blitz days you will be automatically moved into the April - June Term 2019! But not to worry! We can easily remove you from the program if it is no longer serving you. Just PM us on Slack or text us on the BANGS hotline!
  • For Blitz Categories moving forward we will have the same categories each term with the overall theme changes each Blitz! The Confirmed categories are as follows... Shoe Selfie, BANGS Art, Adventure Buddies / Companions, Spirit Guide & Sole Mates, and Wildcard. The wildcard category is completely new built off of BA feedback! This will be a submission box where BAs can submit links to IG posts that they feel should have been included in the survey, either someone else’s post or their own! Winners of this category will be chosen at BANGS’ discretion.
  • We are also adding a Sunshine Day at the end of the term where we randomly select prize winners who participated in all 3 Blitz Days!!

Blitz Survey Guidelines

After each Blitz we release a Survey for our community to vote on some of our most creative images posted! It is one of our MOST favorite times of the year to highlight (some) of your work! Please know that we are not able to select everyone's images (and that the process of narrowing down is HARD!) but if your image is NOT selected is does not mean that you didn't crush Blitz!! To help give you a better idea of what we're looking for check out this list!

Please also know that number of followers, likes, and comments are NOT taken into consideration whatsoever for images selected to appear on our survey.


To make it onto the Blitz Survey, we look for...
  • High quality images (no pixelation)
  • Interesting perspectives
  • Clearly visible BANGS
  • Unique additions to images
  • Creative flare
  • In line with Blitz Survey categories. We will have the same categories each Blitz with the overall theme changing each time! The confirmed categories are: Shoe Selfie, BANGS Art, Adventure Buddies / Companions, Spirit Guide & Sole Mates, and Wildcard. 

Below we have included a series of image examples that have made it onto previous surveys! Click on the image to be taken to the photographer's Instagram page. We cannot wait to see what you come up with!

    Slack House Rules
    • Adventure and positivity only! All controversial topics are left outside of BANGS!
    • Your BANGS Ambassador discount code is for shoes for your feet only! This code should never be shared for anyone. Not even for presents!
    • Friends & Family code can be shared via text, DM, but never on social media!
    Slack Help

    1. How to silence a channel & manage notifications:

     

    2. How to leave a channel

    3. How to add yourself to a channel

    You can join as many channels as you'd like, but I recommend only choosing your top 3 so you don't get overwhelmed! You can also leave a channel at any point if it no longer serving you! Below I have included some ""How Tos"" but I would also encourage you to click around & get SUPER comfortable in Slack. It will be the primary place to connect with the BANGS Community!

    4. Slack Best Practices
    • Please do not spam any Slack channels with your IG handle! The BANGS Slack is a sacred space where we are trying to build a real, online community. It is a place to share & talk, and if you would like to give your IG handle to someone personally, please PM them!
    • Slack has a Desktop App and whew let me tell you! It's a game changer!! After you get your email invite, I highly recommend checking it out!
    • If there is a channel you'd like to see created, share your ideas in the #ideas channel in Slack & a Spirit Guide will help us figure out if we can make it! We will do our best to make all channel recommendations, but cannot make every single one!
