We're not an agency.
We're a first-of-its-kind think tank dedicated to championing athletes in the business of sport by equipping athletes and other stakeholders with innovative branding and marketing practices — so they can maximize their earnings, influence and impact, during and after their playing careers.
We are not an agency. We’re strategic advisors and your secret weapon: athlete branding and marketing "quarterbacks" who work with the world's most forward-thinking athletes (and their representatives) to pioneer the way today's athletes monetize their personal brand (and the brands with which they're affiliated), strengthen fan loyalty, and build an ever-growing fanbase, while minimizing the investments of time and money.
We win when athletes win.
Like an offensive lineman, we like to play in the trenches. Our hands-on, interactive training programs are custom-tailored to the specific, measurable, timely goals of our partners.
We provide both on-site and virtual training to athletes, agencies and other stakeholders that want to hone the most advanced, up-to-date athlete branding and marketing skills; acquire additional expertise and insights; and move the needle with their own practices of athlete branding and marketing.
RESEARCH & ADVOCACY
With a limited portion of in-depth and up-to-date research and advocacy about athlete branding and marketing, we pick up the slack for athletes, agencies and other stakeholders that want to develop a greater understanding of the most innovative approaches to building, scaling and monetizing athlete brands.
We design and distribute custom surveys – as well as spearhead research projects and advocacy programs – on behalf of athletes, brands and organizations that seek greater insights into the far-reaching benefits of modern-day athlete branding and marketing.
Although academic institutions are doing their best to keep pace with the fast-changing digital world, there's always room for improvement.
In addition to the vast amount of educational materials we publish on our website and around the Web, iABM partners with academic institutions that want to equip their students with the most advanced, up-to-date and comprehensive curriculum; modern-day, real-world knowledge; and a diverse set of skills related to the disciplines of athlete branding and marketing.

We are driven by the metrics that matter: fanbase size, exposure, fan engagement, and most importantly, additional income.
Always curious about new possibilities, we're on a constant quest to be better today than we were yesterday.
We operate at all levels of customization, from a simple sacrifice bunt to a game-winning grand slam.
We stay connected to the details, audit frequently, and are skeptical when metrics and anecdotes differ.
