Athlete influencer marketing solutions for brands and sponsors

Athletes own the most powerful social media channels in sports.
Now it’s easy to be part of those channels and bring your brand to the right audience with influencer solutions that work.

Reach audiences on social media like never before

Brands and sponsors spend millions of dollars to reach the right audience on social media, yet the powerful distribution channels in sports and social media — athletes — are often left untapped. We get it. Marketers know athletes have the audience and attention of sports fans on social media, but executing campaigns hasn’t always been this easy. Athlete influencer social media deals used to be difficult for all involved. Tedious discovery, prolonged negotiations, and unfilled agreements soured the experience for both sides.

That reality is in the past.

Marketers can instantly access and select the perfect athletes for their influencer campaign using advanced analytics and our network of over 10,000 active athletes. Negotiations and contracts are seamlessly managed, and multi-athlete campaigns can be launched in minutes, not months. Most importantly, once your agreement is in place, fulfillment is guaranteed. Approved content is automatically published in the athlete’s channel.

No more gatekeepers. No more shared passwords. No more copy-paste-and-pray. Just powerful posts in the feeds your fans love.

Welcome to the new era of athlete-driven social media influencer marketing.

Convert fans to customers on social media.


Advanced activations

Brands activate and advertise alongside sports to reach and impact passionate fanbases. Athletes not only provide hyper-targeted distribution to that fanbase — identical content performs 10X higher in their channels when compared to accounts owned by their team and league.

So bring content to their channels. Maximize your content and activations by reaching fans in their favorite feeds.

But inventory for that exposure is limited. Amplify that exposure on social media with the most powerful partner in sports — the athlete.
