No. We connect athletes (and their management) with paid opportunities, and handle the booking and payment process through our online platform. We are a marketplace and do not have exclusive agreements with talent or management groups.
Sport Endorse gives you autonomy over what brand opportunities you apply for. You can personally apply to the opportunities that suit you best online via the Sport Endorse Platform. Sport Endorse also never takes more than 16% commission on the successful deals you apply for on our online platform which is much lower than our competitors who normally take upwards of 20%.
To register with Sport Endorse you need to be considered an elite talent in your sports category. Elite talent is defined as a person who is either a professional in their designated sport and/or has competed at national or international level.
There are many different forms of sponsorship available to you via the Sport Endorse platform. These include becoming a paid brand ambassador or paid keynote/motivational speaker, as well as doing a one-off paid product/company endorsement or attending events. It is also common for brands to offer their product or service for free as a form of payment.
No, you will only be notified whether your application was successful or not. You will be advised and subsequently informed if the Brand has shortlisted you and their final decision, but no further feedback will be given.
A good bio is one that contains as much informative data as possible to ensure you are attractive to brands, yet also tells your story in a compelling way. Include as much information as you want, and feel free to supplement this with videos (upload directly or link in from YouTube), and links to articles. You should also connect up your social media accounts if you have them as some brands take your number of followers into consideration.
Yes, by filling out your profile with a photo of yourself in action and the correct information you can make your profile more attractive to sponsors. This includes your sporting discipline, team, achievements, sporting goals, brands you use daily and brands you would like to work with and some fun facts about yourself.
It is also important to include your social media accounts, as sponsors will be more likely to work with you if you have a large social media following.
Staying active on the platform with photos and videos of your sporting progress and achievements will also improve your chances, as it shows you are marketable and able to post regular content which is an important skill to have for growing an engaged audience on social media.
The Sport Endorse app is an online portal where elite athletes get to apply to commercial opportunities posted directly by companies and PR agencies. We have over 300 such brands listed on it currently from multiple industries.
When a client and star agree to work together, Sport Endorse requires a 50% deposit to confirm the booking. Booking deposits are non-refundable if you cancel after booking a star. If a star cancels and Sport Endorse is unable to find a suitable replacement, we will refund the full amount you have paid us.
If you book within 14 days of your event, we will require the full payment within 7 days and prior to the event to confirm the booking. If the sports star does not turn up to the event, Sport Endorse will provide a full refund.
Marketing agencies and approved clients may qualify for customised payment terms. Contact us to discuss.
We offer flexible payment options by Corporate Credit Card, via Stripe. Stripe is an Irish-American financial services company specialising in online payment processing, similar to Paypal. Payments can also be made by bank transfer. In both cases the platform will automatically generate an invoice. You may also choose to part-pay the athlete with some of your products or services.
Yes, this can be done in the description of the opportunity or it can be discussed directly with the talent via the messenger within the platform. Please note also some talent may have some restrictions of their own due to sponsorship arrangements.
By joining Sport Endorse you will have access to over 1350 athletes, all of whom will be able to help you promote your brand using their large followings, increasing your brand’s public exposure which leads to more sales.
