Sharing your profile and video is one of the best ways to get yourself in front of college coaches so they can view all your information and evaluate you as a student-athlete. Having video is key to having a complete profile on our platform, and in this article, you'll learn how you can share it with college coaches so they can view it easily.
1. Share your Profile Link
One way college coaches will be able to see the video you've made visible on your profile is if you share your profile link with them. By viewing your profile, they'll have the option to click and watch any video on your profile. We recommend this first option because this will direct coaches to your profile, where they will be able to see any of the other videos on your profile, your academic information, etc. Here is an article with more information about your Profile Link.
2. Share a Specific Video Link
If there is a specific video you'd like a college coach to see, another option is to copy the "Video Share Link." When you click to watch the video on your profile, this share option will be located in the bottom right area under the video.
Note: Only videos that are public or "visible" on your profile will have the option to share a link. Videos that live in your video library and are "not visible" will not have this option.
Where to Share My Videos
Whichever option you decide, we recommend using the SportsRecruits messaging system to communicate with college coaches and to share your links. With every message sent using the messaging system, a link to your profile is automatically embedded. This allows us to track college coaches who view your profile and watch your videos so we can send your view notifications and keep a view count on your videos.
If you send a link to your profile outside of the messaging system, you will not be notified of any college coach activity on your profile. However, having your link available to college coaches on social media is still a great option to get exposure. For this reason, we recommend sharing a link to your SportsRecruits profile on any social media pages or anywhere you are sharing your athletic information. This may include but is not limited to:
- Recruiting Questionnaires, etc.
