23 Ways to Use Twitter to Play College Football WHEREVER You Want...

  • Mindset 1: Accept that your name is a brand. 

  • Mindset 2: A brand is your reputation - what people think about you when they hear your name. 

  • Mindset 3: Your brand is either going in the direction you want it to, or the direction of where someone else wants it to go. Be active in your management of it. 

  • Mindset 4: When you full take advantage of the platform of social media, and you have something valuable to offer, anything is possible. 

  • Separate personal from professional social media accounts. It takes a lifetime to build a reputation and a second to ruin it all. Set all your account settings to maximum privacy on your personal settings. 

  • Clear profile banner and picture. 

  • Give them the meat and potatoes - list all info they would want, name, school, graduation year, GPA SAT ACT, accolades pin hudl tape. 

  • Stick to a format - don’t do stuff that is whacky. Stick to a script. i.e. post a quote and a video working out. Any college visit you do as well to a college is helpful to show you are WANTED. 

  • Create valuable hashtags that are related to ranking camps. 

  • Create a running video of 10-12 kicks that mimic a prospect camp. 

  • Create super pictures/videos/slo-mos…These are the things that will get someone to watch. 

  • Go live when you kick/punt/snap…reality is the new TV kicking is no different. Challenge yourself when you go LIVE. 

  • Send DM’s to college coaches that follow proven scripts that work (check out site for this clutch-kicks.com/blog for this).

  • Post workout videos of yourself doing the lifts that no one else likes i.e. squats, dead lifts, front squats, single leg. 

  • Post videos/photos of community service events. 

  • Post videos/photos of positive inspirational quotes. 

  • Post videos/photos of cardio workouts.

  • Follow/Unfollow/Then Follow again to try to attract a college coach. 

  • Select the right time/place. There is a time and place for everything under the sun - most college coaches will be on their iPhones between 5am - 10am or 8pm - 10pm, especially on weekends. 

  • Post photos of you and a college coach with all the team’s appropriate hashtags for their program. 

  • Consistency is everything. Don’t be the guy with 3 random Twitter posts from 4 years ago. Actively manage, tinker and tweak it!

  • You are what you like/retweet. Even if you SAY NOTHING, you will be judged based off of what you retweet, tweet, and like. 

  • Thank everyone who follows you - you never know who they know with a personalized DM.
