A common inquiry we receive here at In a Breeze Marketing is: ‘How do we use Twitter? I don’t get it’, especially from athletes. Twitter for Fighters is a crucial part of career development, gaining exposure, building a fanbase and of course the opportunity for an Athlete Sponsorship! Twitter for athletes can be quite overwhelming, and time consuming if there is a lack of understanding the platform. Quite frankly, it can be a very overwhelming platform, if you are inexperienced.
We are launching a Twitter for Fighters Program, with a FREE one page guide to help you effectively manage your own Twitter account in 20 minutes per day!
Don’t give up! There is help out there for you! We have been training just as hard for the Social Media Game as you have for your next bout.
Here’s a great article from MMABlogsomnia regarding what sponsors are looking for.
“What are the 3 best things a fighter can do to get your attention?”
As you read their replies you’ll see these key points repeatedly stated:
- Have a large social media fan base
- Engage your fans on social media
- Promote sponsors via social media, word of mouth, and media appearances
- Use your unique personality to market the sponsors’ products to your fans and friends
- Reach out to sponsors
- Be a positive role model and brand ambassador
- Be loyal to a brand
What’s the number one issue you see above? Social media! Remember, as an athlete, YOU ARE YOUR OWN BRAND!
