Kentucky star Josh Allen saw his Instagram following grow more than 400 percent during the 2018 college football season.
For NFL hopefuls such as Kentucky’s Josh Allen and Benny Snell or Miami’s Jaquan Johnson, the 2018 college football season also saw big goals — and big gains — off the field. Growing their personal brands on social media, using content created by their school’s creative team and delivered to their smart phones for social sharing via the Influencer (INFLCR) mobile app was also part of the plan, as Front Office Sports outlines.
Allen, a likely top-5 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, grew his Instagram audience by more than 400 percent during the season. And while he and Snell were the Wildcats’ highest-profile stars, the reality was that the strategy of delivering content to the student-athletes helped the entire team grow its audience within the context of the UK brand.
