NIL is for Everyone

We’ve heard from countless athletes, coaches, and administrators, and the message is the same: NIL education is critical for everyone. From the Division I college athlete to the high school junior starting the college recruiting process, there are NIL opportunities for you. 

If you are just starting out in your NIL journey or don’t know where to begin, we are here to help. We’ve simplified the process and broken it down into an online game plan to help you make the best decisions about your potential NIL opportunities. 

And while NIL may serve you in college, you’ll be learning skills that will prepare you for life after college. 

Let’s figure out how we can maximize your potential.

Your Future Begins Now

The Players NIL is an online educational program that equips you with the financial and brand building skills to navigate NIL opportunities.

We are not a brand representative or a deal maker. We educate and develop your intellectual property and give you the tools to make the best decisions about your NIL opportunities.

      Mark Koesterer
      Founder

      Welcome. I’m Mark Koesterer, founder of The Players NIL, and I have a deep passion for this work. My background includes a long and extensive relationship with the sporting industry. As a former college athlete, I have first hand experience navigating the collegiate world. As a father of college athletes, I was actively involved with supporting the requirements needed to compete at the highest level, while maintaining focus on broader life goals. As the president and CEO of Sports Studio, I helped build a successful Hollywood sports and entertainment company.

      At Sports Studio, I interacted with athletes, brands, production companies, professional sports leagues, and agents. All of this gave me expert-level experience in digital marketing, branding, production, group licensing, sponsorship, influencer marketing, apparel design and production, and fan engagement.

      It’s ALL of this collective experience that I offer, while bringing you a premier level of service that will help you reach your goals. If you would like to learn how to build your brand and maximize your NIL potential, contact me today.
