Andrew receives all kinds of requests and messages every day. Many are detailed questions about obscure subjects, and others are simply to send good wishes. If you’re about to ask something of Andrew, start by showing your support in some way, for example, become a Patreon supporter. Andrew would love to respond to every message, but that is impossible given the volume of email requests he receives. So show your support before asking for his. It makes ALL the difference.
As a rule, it’s a long shot. Andrew takes close friends on his trips and rarely considers strangers who ask.
Q: I’m an influencer. Can I invite Andrew on one of my trips or visa versa?
It’s worth asking. One of the challenges with joint trips is that when Andrew creates an expedition, it’s primarily Andrew’s trip. He must be in charge for him to know that his work can be completed successfully. A trip is not a holiday for Andrew. He works tirelessly to get the content. If he goes on someone else’s trip, then their tasks and goals must take priority. It’s only fair that it does. Andrew will tell you that one cannot have two directors and two different films being made on one film shoot.
Very much, yes! But you must use the Patreon message board. It’s the only easy way for us to know you’re an active Patreon.
You can support Andrew through Patreon, yearly subscriptions, donations, purchasing merchandise or his fine prints. If these aren’t possible, then you can always subscribe to his content or use the tip-jar on the homepage.
Andrew left Facebook in 2019 but returned for the occasional visit in 2021. Do not use Facebook to message him because he is unlikely to see it and if he does, won’t respond. Andrew may see your post or comment on Instagram. But don’t count on a reply if you send one.
Andrew will consult with you over Zoom or MS Teams for a A$350,00 p/h fee, min 1 hour. Most common subjects include:
- Vehicle builds
- Expedition travel in Southern Africa.
- The global 4WD industry
Andrew reads messages on his LinkedIn page. It’s a good way of reaching him. But if it’s a general comment or question, it may be ignored. Use LinkedIn for business contacts and not for general chat.
You are free to, but you won’t get a reply. While he doesn’t want to appear standoffish, if he spent his time answering just half of those requests, he would be overwhelmed. So I suggest you don’t ask. Sorry. But he does respond to Patreon’s questions.
Andrew gets a lot of these. Because some people would like him to stay over for all the wrong reasons, the offer may be declined. (Once bitten, twice shy). And if you want to invite Andrew over to discuss your business hoping for some publicity – that’s also a bad idea. Far more effective is to send an invitation or proposal via LinkedIn. KEEP PROPOSALS BRIEF!
Andrew gets a lot of these too. Long drawn-out proposals are the norm, and they are the wrong way to get Andrew’s attention. Here’s what to do: Use LinkedIn. And keep your proposal brief. He’s a very busy person and will expect you to respect that. Get to the point quickly in an opening summary. If he wants to take things further, then he’ll do that. Oh, and another thing . . keep it brief!
