While social media has become the ultimate branding and marketing avenue for almost all industries today, this was not the case several years ago. For the sports and entertainment industry, agents never explored growth in social media platforms until The NFL Agent pioneered these efforts over six years ago. This seasoned agent became one of the first professionals who saw the potential of social media in the sports scene. Since then, he has disrupted the industry with powerful branding and marketing techniques, which have changed the lives of many NFL players, entrepreneurs, and influencers for the better.
Best known as The NFL Agent, Jesse Foreman has served as a leading agent in the National Football League for over six years. He has represented many drafted and undrafted players that started in the NFL and a Super Bowl Champion. As an agent, he has spearheaded deals with large brands such as Disney, Nike, Adidas, Zoma, Training Mask, Panini, and more on behalf of his clients.
Before establishing The NFL Agent brand, Jesse faced countless challenges in life, which molded him into the empowered personality he is today. From graduating as part of the bottom 15 in his high school class to being only the second high school graduate in his maternal family, life was filled with trials and tribulations. His guidance counselor even discouraged him from applying to college, telling him he would not be accepted in any university. Instead of allowing this to put him down, he used the discouraging words he heard to fuel his determination for college. Soon enough, he became the first of the family to attend college. After a tumultuous journey that involved academic probation, he eventually finished college and became a graduate of the University of Cincinnati College of Law.
During his college years, he discovered a career possibility in the sport he always loved and was determined to become an NFL agent. With this vision in mind, he established The NFL Agent and became one of the few, if not the only, agent who explored social media presence early on in the game. With that in mind, Jesse has consistently taken the lead in the branding and marketing landscape. While almost all agencies today are using social media for more growth, The NFL Agent remains ahead of the times with his exceptional marketing and branding techniques. His success in the field even landed him on the 2019 Top Influential Entrepreneurs list by Yahoo Finance and NASDAQ.
At present, Jesse Foreman has his eyes on doing more speaking engagements on entrepreneurship, branding, and marketing. Together with his business partner Nodirbek Talipov, he hopes to soon help struggling college athletes build big names for themselves. “2021 could bring some big changes in that [branding and marketing] area for NCAA athletes. If the NCAA passes rules to allow players to make money off their likeness, it will be a big opportunity for me to help college players,” shares The NFL Agent.
