SophiaStar Announces New Legacy Packages for Retired Athletes, Actors and Public Figures

groundpalettemasterSophiaStar is pleased to announce the creation of its new Legacy packages for actors, athletes, financial advisors, politicians, musicians, and others in the public eye. The new Legacy packages create an online presence that honors, preserves and promulgates the careers of public figures, particularly after their retirement.

Creating Revenue Streams for Retired Athletes

The Legacy packages include websites that offer career highlights, online shopping for such items as signed memorabilia, and a speaking engagement registration option. Other elements of this new campaign include viral social media of official accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, blogging, Wikipedia editing and more.

SophiaStar President George Magalios elaborates on the relationship between retired athletes and their fans:

“As a diehard sports fan I always found it difficult to write, buy memorabilia and learn more about my beloved athletes. Our new Legacy packages ensure that retired athletes, movie stars and other personalities control the message of how they are perceived online and how they can profit from their careers. A legacy is a gift we leave behind to our children, our grandchildren and friends. Professional athletes need to consider their digital legacies as great money-making tools for their families and an important part of honoring their accomplishments.”

Celebrities In Need of an Online Presence

It is amazing to consider that many A-List movie stars, athletes and politicians have no official website or dedicated online presence. SophiaStar aims to fill the void in the digital domain by creating revenue streams and online presence building entities that allow for a tighter control of one’s image.
