Putting your recruiting dollars to work

28 05 2009

Once again, our friends from Recruiting-101.com have delivered some good articles to help guide high school student-athletes and their parents through the recruiting process. There are two that stuck our to me in recent weeks and that I’d like to share with all of our loyal readers out there.

The first deals with the costs involved with the recruiting process. It’s more of a bulleted list as opposed to an in-depth analysis, but I think it gives you a quick glimpse of how much things costs these days and just how quickly those costs can add up. When you look at this article, ask yourself three questions:

  1. How am I spending my recruiting dollars?
  2. What kind of returns am I getting on those investments?
  3. Where could I afford to cut back?

Because everyone’s situation is different, it’s difficult for us to tell you exactly what’s worth spending your hard earned nickels on and what’s a complete ripoff. If people have the funds and want to spend them, we can’t stop them. However… hopefully you’ve realized by now that SportsPage encourages athletes and parents to take the recruiting process into their own hands. We’ll say it until we’re blue in the face. Our goals are to Educate you (which is what you’re getting by reading this post), and then Empower you by giving you FREE online tools to turn that knowledge into action.

So, take a quick look at this article and then examine your current situation. In the end, we think you’ll be able to find ways to spend less money on recruiting, and, to make sure that the money you are spending is being put to good use.

Click here for the first article, and we’ll cover the second one next time. Thanks for reading.
