Step 1

Strategy

To kick things off, let’s talk about your goals, timeline, KPIs, and more to maximize value for all parties involved.

  • Who are the storytellers?
  • What are the stories about?
  • How many stories?

Step 2

Story Selection

Once we have defined the roadmap , it’s time to find and select the right stories. You can either select the stories yourself or let us do the work for you. We use surveys, research, and other tools to ensure the perfect stories for your objectives.

Step 3

Platform Setup

To maximize corporate partner awareness, we build a custom, white-label platform for your school where all stories will be published on. This is set up as a subdomain of your main site and therefore seamlessly integrates with your existing digital presence. Because our platform is custom-made for each partner, we can easily adjust the layout, CTAs, and more to match your and your corporate partner’s needs and wants.

  • Custom & Responsive Design
  • Custom CTAs
  • Social Sharing
  • Tracking & Analytics

Step 4

Athlete-Driven Content Creation

Our team then creates powerful and authentic stories about selected athletes, written from the perspective of your student-athletes

Step 5

Review Process

To protect the brands of all parties, before any content is ever published, we send it back to you and the student-athlete for review first.

  • Storyteller Review
  • Partner Review

Step 6

Publish & Promote

Once everything looks good, we publish the content on the platform and also provide you and the student-athlete with social media graphics to drive traffic to the story.

  • Publishing
  • Social Sharing
