Why Your Online Image Matters

  • 16 Mar, 2017

The way you present yourself could not only have a profound impact on your sports career but also in life. Your personal IMAGE is the perception that people have about you and it can affect your success in every aspect of life. That’s true because, no matter who you are in most cases your success can ultimately depend on how other people PERCEIVE you but most importantly would be how you REACT to it. If you want to prove someone is wrong, will you be able to work hard to show them what yo are made of? That’s up to you.

At WeGotPlayers, we truly believe that whatever you do on and off the field, your image can play a major role on your success. Why? Because you need a chance to be heard but unfortunately not everyone gets that chance because of lack of preparation. The more desire and confidence you express, the more professional your IMAGE will be and the bigger the impact you’ll make.

Why Your Online Image Is Important

When you want to expose yourself effectively in front of your preferred audience there is nothing more important than starting by showcasing your own professional image. And all that starts with a well crafted resume that highlights your on and off the field abilities. Please make sure that if you have multiple online profiles, you keep them all updated with the same message.

Your reputation is important and that’s how people perceive you to be. But your character is the most important because that’s who you truly are. If you can express your true character thru your online image then that’s something remarkable.

The sports industry is very competitive and college coaches often times look to recruit character first and ability second. A players that’s coachable will always listen and go the extra mile every single time. A player who more advanced in abilities may not always go the extra mile. So the character part is what will decide the attitude of the player which often times can predict how far s/he will go.

We highly believe that in the sports industry you always need to have a positive image and become the best role model you can be. Your social media accounts such as Instagram, Snapchat and the rest need to show who you truly are.
