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.
