Amobi is a professional soccer player drafted in the first round (6th overall) of the 2010 MLS SuperDraft by Philadelphia Union.
He is also the founder of A Frugal Athlete. A blog provides an insider's look into the personal financial playbooks of professional athletes.
We connected at an event in San Francisco, California.
After 8 years in Major League Soccer, Amobi found himself in unfamiliar territory… free agency. He’s always been signed and had a team to play for, this year was going to be different.
He wanted to share this story, but wasn’t sure how to do it.
We had a pre-production / strategy call to talk goals, vision and execution of the story.
For production, we started with the interview and then followed with filming supporting footage (2 days total).
We created 1 full video and 3 “micro” videos to release across his social platforms.
We launched the full video on LinkedIn. It generated 10,000+ views in the first week.
Amobi noted increased site traffic after launching the video.
Authenticity will always shine through the camera.
Great stories are about persevering, handling change, and dealing with adversity.
You can always repurpose interviews/footage for more content.
