Congratulations to the NBL and Australian Basketball Players' Association on their new three-year Collective Bargaining Agreement that sees minimum wages and conditions improve considerably for players. ⠀ ⠀ “The players met regularly throughout the pre-season and season to discuss our key priorities for the NBL and the overarching theme was to ensure we delivered the most professional conditions possible for players,” ABPA Andrew Bogut said. ⠀ ⠀ “This agreement delivers upon that priority, ensuring players are supported during and after their NBL careers. ⠀ ⠀ “It reflects the NBL’s status as a world-class league and athletes being recognised accordingly,” he said. ⠀ ⠀
If you’re heavy into social media for your business understand that change is inevitable. With these platforms changing their algorithms and policies so much, most users and businesses get blindsided by them. Luckily, this is what I do. So here’s some changes you might wanna be aware of: 1. Instagram has already started hiding likes in Canada and will be implementing that in the US very shortly. So say goodbye to “likes”. It’s all about the engagement now. All posts should get your audience to engage and comment. 2. Facebook is really pushing their mission to provide more privacy. The next wave is now Groups. They’re trying to create more of a community platform for businesses and influencers. This may be good for entrepreneurs who wanna start mastermind groups, etc. 3. By the summer, anyone will be able to create their own Instagram Stories filters using Spark AR Studio. Thats a good look for my fellow creatives entrepreneurs 4. A new camera mode is coming to the Gram with a new design. 5. Instagram is currently testing an “Away” mode for bullying or just ppl who dont wanna be bothered. This would give users a chance to step away from the Gram and its notifications temporarily, without deleting their account. 6. Instagram Stories will be getting a “donations” sticker for non profits and fundraising ✌🏾
𝐏𝐒𝐀: You don’t have to post to prove it. I guess I’m old school. I started out before Instagram and Facebook ads. Back when you had to have a real track record and you had to show results. I think social media has folks confused. People are so concerned with looking like their working and neglecting doing the actual work. Entrepreneurship isn’t a trend. It’s a way of life. It’s cool to post moves. But it’s cooler to execute on em.
With over 2000+ professional athletes in Australia, how do you stand out? . Building a brand and following takes effort and commitment. Those who do it successfully with a strategy in mind will reap the benefits! . #morethananathlete#thecommercialathlete#agencyxtip
I came to understand that the best way to see ourselves is through our relationships with other people. We can only be triggered by something we’ve experienced ourselves. The things we tend to dislike in others are usually the things we do not like about ourselves. 𝐁𝐄 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐑𝐄𝐅𝐋𝐄𝐂𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍 𝐎𝐅 𝗪𝐇𝐀𝐓 𝐘𝐎𝐔 𝗪𝐀𝐍𝐍𝐀 𝐒𝐄𝐄 𝐈𝐍 𝐎𝐓𝐇𝐄𝐑𝐒. Drop a ❤️ and show yaself some love
It's important to stand out from the crowd, and build your brand. ⠀ ⠀ It's not always about being the best athlete at the peak of your career. ⠀ ⠀ It's about how you can engage your fans and build new ones! ⠀ ⠀ #agencyx#thecommercialathlete#agencyxtip ⠀
A commercial athlete won't just leave it to their sport or club to promote them, they'll take control of owning their own brand. ⠀ ⠀ A-League players @henrique.silva_33 and @rolybonevacia are two great examples of athletes who use their own designers to produce content promoting their next games and engaging fans to come and see them which promotes their own personal athlete brand. ⠀ ⠀ Shout out to Roly whose developed his own personal logo. ⠀ ⠀ #agencyx#thecommercialathlete#morethananathlete ⠀⠀
2x Olympic gold medialist and World Champion skier Mikaela Shriffin, wants to be more than just an athlete she wants to use her platform to become an example for the world. ⠀ ⠀ Caring for your image and engaging with your community is very important for athletes. ⠀ ⠀ #agencyx#thecommercialathlete#morethananathlete ⠀
👊 Athletes + Fashion! . Fashion allows athletes to showcase their unique attributes and show their personalities, allowing them to show they are more than just an athlete, and to attract new fans outside of sport. . Which athlete did it best at the Met Gala?
It’s important as an athlete that you own your name and control it’s use everywhere! . Whether you plan on having a website or not, it’s important you buy your URL, this is your website domain name. . If you don’t someone else may buy it and the bigger your profile gets the more it’s going to cost you to buy it later. Websites are becoming a requirement for many athletes to assist in promoting the brands they work for and to raise their profiles. . If you need help with this or are interested in building a website DM us. #agencyx#agencyxtip#morethananathlete

Every interaction an Athlete has, has the opportunity to change someone’s day, life, goals, perceptions and dreams to name a few. . These kids were buzzing after meeting Jack. . Then to watch Dylan sign and give away multiple boots to the kids, he sure won the hearts and dreams of many kids. . You have a platform as an Athlete, never forget the influence you have, and sometimes it’s as simple as giving a high five! Great job @jack_hingert and @dylanwenzelhalls #morethananathlete
So good Mr Bauthéac! Eric makes World News with the cheekiest penalty shot ever. 👉 @bautheaceric ・・・ Failed panenka or should we be calling it the escargot? 😂🐌👏 #repost @foxfootballaus #agencyxtalent#agencyx
As an athlete you have a platform which is attractive to brands, don’t be afraid to ask brands for what you want. It’s a two way relationship if you can appeal to their customers, and you like their product it’s a win-win. #agencyx#agencyxtip
What an addition Henrique (aka The Slippery Fish) has been for the A-League, the quiet Brazilian who has scored some of the most game changing goals ever seen in the League, including winning the Brisbane Roar FC the 13/14 Championship. ⠀ ⠀ He still holds the A-League record for the most goals scored off the bench, and holds two Premiers Plates as well as three Grand Final victories with the Roar. ⠀ ⠀ He is a club legend, our friend and we will miss watching him play. 👉 Follow @henrique.silva_33. To work with Henrique contact us today! #agencyx#agencyxtalent
HARD WORK + PATIENCE I’m honored to be acknowledged amongst such a talented list of individuals. This is just an example of dedication. Tap in with me at this year’s Millennial Empowerment Expo #gratitude #mee2019 🏁
Direct from an athlete who recognised the power and responsibility of his social platform. . #repost This hug changed me. There was a time I got lost in social media. There were times I deleted posts because they didn’t get the amount of likes or comments I thought it would. This night that changed when this amazing lady cried in my arms telling me that this post stopped her from committing suicide. What if I deleted the post before she saw it because I didn’t have enough likes? There’s a chance she could’ve took her life smh. This is bigger than me, bigger than likes and comments. Share your message because it can literally save lives! #itsgametime . 👉 @stillinthegame Devon Still Former NFL Player
Women make over 70% of all household purchasing decisions... a female athlete has significant power to influence purchases. ⠀ ⠀ They also have powerful stories of overcoming adversity, time management and accomplishment, making them terrific speakers for any event. ⠀ ⠀ Consider supporting female athletes with your next sponsorship or marketing campaign. ⠀
Own your story and you decide the next chapter. ⠀ ⠀ Congratulations to @santalab11, @carlvaleri21 and Alex Brosque on announcing their retirements, and allowing the fans to appreciate their final games in the A-League. Well done to the Clubs for supporting these athletes on these monumental moments. ⠀
Congratulations to @greg_inglis1 calling time on his own terms! . One of the greatest footballers of all time, he has weathered a few storms but always remained authentic and genuine. . We will miss watching him play... he will forever be a custodian of the game. . Goodluck to whoever can break his record! . Origin won’t be the same!
