Before you start your Australian female athlete’s outreach program on Instagram, let me tell you something you have probably been turning a blind eye to…

Instagram may not be helping you reach your marketing goals

  • Your Instagram content may be reaching only 5% of your followers (If you are lucky!) This is a massive issue affecting thousands of marketers in different industries. 
  • You keep trying hard to build an audience on Instagram that you do not even own.
  • You cannot transfer your hard-earned Instagram followers to your CRM.
  • Your customer acquisition costs from Instagram ads are through the roof.

The solution

I can offer you the best marketing strategy training that will help you:

Tip: Australian elite sporting female athletes are just one section of the sporting industry and you could partner with other popular members of the sports industry:

  1. Top sports manager/couches. Their interviews get tons of views, especially on YouTube.
  2. Top sports presenters. These are the faces covering sporting news on TV.
  3. Top sports commentators. A sports commentator (also known as a sports announcer, sportscaster, or play-by-play announcer) gives a real-time commentary of a game or event, usually during a live broadcast. They can also be invited to a sports show to offer commentary after a popular game.
  4. Top sports entertainers. Sports entertainers are content creators who love making funny videos about popular live broadcasted sporting games and/or matches. You can find them on YouTube, TikTok, etc.
  5. Top rules analysts. In the last decade, live sports broadcasters began to increasingly employ rules analysts to explain penalties and controversial calls, and analyse instant replay reviews to predict whether a call/fault will or will not be overturned. These rules analysts are typically former referees.
