When you think of your favorite brand, what comes to mind? A favorite product? A company with a rich tradition? A car make, a tech company, a soft drink?
How about your favorite super star athlete?
That’s right, athletes are brands too. Like any product, an athlete has a unique story, a set of core values, a different group of loyal consumers, and receives an individual perception from the public. An athlete can enhance his or her brand and grow his or her brand following and loyalty, just like any company. A great strategy combined with the right opportunities will allow each athlete to become more than just a name and a number.
Jordan, Lebron, Tiger, Serena, Brady, Manning. The list goes on and on. These are all brands. Like any other brand, they have a story to tell and an image to portray.
