Power Comes with Content How opendorse Revolutionized Athlete Marketing in Social Media

The influencer marketing landscape is at its pinnacle with brands seeking help from ‘prized’ influencers to drive their message to audiences large enough to pack out hundreds, if not thousands, of sports stadiums. But not every influencer is a born marketer.

Athletes are prime examples of influencers who, despite not being natural marketers, get worldwide attention from their social audience. Thus, brands and sponsors see athletes as the “golden chalice” of influencers who have the unique power to reach millions of sports fans with every post they publish on social media.

According to Adi Kunalic and Blake Lawrence from opendorse, the ability to reach the masses on social isn’t exclusive to the most influential entities in sports media. The average athlete has a 6% engagement rate on social compared to the average sports team, which has an engagement rate of just 0.3%.
