adidas NIL Ambassador Instructions


As a student-athlete at an adidas sponsored school, you now have an opportunity to earn commission on sales you send to by promoting adidas products on your social handles and encouraging your followers to use your custom affiliate tracking link. The more you post about adidas, the more potential you have to earn! 


Step by Step Instructions - Note: You must first opt-in to the campaign and be onboarded before moving on to the steps below.  To opt-in visit:


  1. Use your adidas Tracking Link: You MUST refer to this specific link in all of your adidas content in order for Postgame to track sales originating from your posts.  The link is available within your Postgame account in the Postgame App. When you login visit the Menu >> Tracking Links.  

    Note: a tracking link is also referred to as an Affiliate Link (learn more).


  2. Three (3) effective ways to share your link: 
    a). The most effective way to drive sales using your Tracking Link is to post Instagram Stories and using it as a 'sticker tap'.  Tell people to click your link to start shopping.

    b). Share your link DIRECTLY with your family and friends.  Text them your link and tell them to shop using your link. 

    c). Add your link to your bio and refer to it in your Feed or Reel posts - e.g. "Click My Link In Bio to Shop". 


  3. Create Content: We suggest creating lots of content at one time. Find a friend or teammate to help you.  Someone with video editing skills is a plus!  Use a high quality camera. If you decide to use an iPhone, ensure your video and photo quality is set to the highest resolution the phone allows. Create content that can be versatile and used within your IG Story, Reels, Feed and TikTok. Vertical camera orientation is suggested. adidas would like for you to use the copyright-free music wherever possible (search copyright free on Instagram or TikTok).

  4. Post Often: There is no limit to how often you can post - and no limit to how much you can earn.   Consider re-posting content over and over again. 

  5. Get Paid: Postgame will keep track of all your sales and commissions earned.  We will pay you on a monthly basis through your preferred payment method such as Venmo, CashApp, Zelle or PayPal. If needed we will also send you a W-9 tax form and a year end 1099.

  6. Rinse and Repeat: Each time you receive new adidas product from your school, purchase adidas product or simply find something on the site you like, keep posting about them and keep earning as long as you are eligible and playing for a participating adidas sponsored school.
