The US college athlete world has changed.
What does this NCAA NIL rule change mean? What can student-athletes do now?
For student-athletes, this means that they will now be able to profit off of their name, image, and likeness. Until July 1st, this has been illegal and there have been many cases where college athletes have been penalized and punished for doing so (such as UCF Kicker Donald de la Haye aka. Deestroying).
This rule change opens up a whole new world of opportunity for student-athletes to, instead of raising money for their school or charity programs, raise money for themselves and use it for whatever they like. It offers student-athletes a way to earn some extra money on the side to help support themselves.
What is SPRTER?
We are a sport-tech company based in Philadelphia that has developed a new sport experience platform for iOS. The app, SPRTER, is a revolutionary sport-specific social media application designed to change how sporters and supporters interact.
The SPRTER app has a big emphasis on charity and we are hoping to empower sporters and supporters to unite and make a positive difference using the power of sport. Not only do we want to change the world of sport, we also want to change the world through sport.
What is the SPRTER app?
The SPRTER application is a free sport experience platform for iOS. It is a sport-specific social media platform that allows sporters and supporters to connect through fan experiences.
It provides sporters with a tool to: easily build a strong brand, better connect with existing supporters, get exposed to new supporters from across the globe, promote the charities and causes they are passionate about, and monetize!
It provides supporters with the opportunity to: discover a whole new side of their favorite sporters, discover new sporters, brand yourself as a top supporter, show support for charities and causes that sporters support, raise awareness and even crowdfund for their own causes, and purchase unique fan experiences from sporters!
One of the most exciting features in the SPRTER app is the Experience Store. Each sporter on the app can enable this feature for free and start monetizing by selling unique fan, and business, experiences. And the experience store is now available to student-athletes.
How can SPRTER help student-athletes in the monetization process after the NCAA NIL rule change?
This new rule change is huge, but where to start? Many student-athletes might not know how they can start benefiting from this rule change. Enter SPRTER. The app can be an effective free tool to help in just this. It is important for student-athletes to start developing their personal brands, but this needs to lead to something, money.
The SPRTER app allows sporters to highlight everything that their supporters and potential sponsors would like to know about them. But, not only that, they can also start selling unique fan, and business, experiences right on their profile!
All the sporter needs to do is enable the feature, choose all the experiences they want to sell, add all the necessary details (experience description, availability/completion time, and price), save their store, and start promoting it to their followers!
Sporters can sell things like a round of golf, gaming together, a meal together, 1 on 1 training sessions, game film reviews, Zoom calls, secret handshakes, and much more to supporters!
Sporters can also sell sponsorships, endorsements, product testings, appearances, and much more to businesses!
Once a sporter receives an experience request, they can negotiate with the user and then decide whether they want to accept or reject. Once the experience has been accepted, the payment will be held in escrow until it is complete, then it will be released to the sporter.
Sporters get paid in an in-app currency called SPRTER Coins, which can be cashed out into US dollar through PayPal or Venmo.
Did we also mention that we don’t take a cut from earnings made through the app?
Everything a sporter earns goes straight into their own pocket, unless they want to opt into our personal assistant service, SPRTER GOLD, through which we essentially take care of everything on the sporters behalf (profile and Experience Store setup, day-to-day management, creation of promotional content, cash out process, charitable donations).
