Anthony Fernandez has recognized the significance of being able to connect to your fans through social media, blogging, and viral marketing.
As an Athlete Branding Expert, he has recognized the shift in sports marketing and sports management in regards to athletes no longer just getting sponsorship’s and endorsement deals based on their performance. Many athletes are measured on how marketable they are as well as how their personality will mend with their organizations product and services. As an Athlete Branding Expert, we work closely with these celebrities to ensure they are portrayed as a marketable figure.
Athletes looking to truly make an early connection with fans and scouts have taken to social media which has given them a gateway to display their personality as well as give the athlete a voice.

The age of social media has arrived and being proactive instead of reactive will empower athletes and celebrities to take advantage of the opportunities that arise with being an early adopter.
