Let’s face it. Many big time athletes are starting to build and expand their brand to new audiences by connecting with fans on social networks. Shaq and Lance Armstrong are two all-stars who are using Twitter and Facebook and seeing great results. They are doing a fantastic job, but a lot of it has to do with their already “big brand” presence they have offline.
Even if you are not a “big time” pro athlete, actor, entertainer, or brand, there are still things you should be doing online to connect with your audience. Luckily for us, we don’t have to think about how to implement everything online because there are experts like Amy Martin who can lead the way. Amy works with powerful brands such as Shaq, the Chicago White Sox, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), and more. Check out the video below for a few of her tips you should be implementing to develop your (athletes) brand online.
