NIL Network


We Simplify NIL.

NIL is complex, nuanced, and ever-evolving. It can feel overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be.

Our industry-leading support and services were developed off thousands of conversations with NIL leaders, a year in-house as an NIL administrator, and three years of exclusively studying the development of this new space.

Michelle is one of the most plugged in resources in the name, image, and likeness (NIL), industry. Her experience in-house with a university and it’s student-athletes, along with what she has built with NIL Network, makes her the most well-balanced industry leader, who takes pride in giving the best insight and perspective from all sides. If you are looking to build anything in the NIL world, having Michelle in your corner is a must.

Learn From a Balanced Industry Leader

An Experienced NIL Admin: As one of the first full-time NIL administrators in the country (at San Diego State), Michelle played a pivotal role in the development, launch, and management of SDSU's NIL Program. Her leadership and innovation were further demonstrated by her creation of an NIL admin monthly meeting and slack community, bringing together admins nationwide to discuss current issues and collaborate on solutions.

Established in the NIL Field: Now in it's 3rd year, Michelle founded and grew NIL Network into a go-to source for reliable NIL information and has built trusted relationships with hundreds of industry professionals through her work as a speaker, consultant, and author. She has established herself as a thought leader in the field and is highly knowledgeable about the challenges surrounding NIL and the unique pain points of each stakeholder.

Since 2020, Michelle has dedicated herself fully to the study and advancement of name, image and likeness.

Having a resource who is knowledgeable of every level of collegiate athletics and the entire Name, Image, & Likeness ecosystem is a huge asset. Working with someone you trust has the best interests of athletes, institutions, and partners alike gives us a lot of confidence in a constantly evolving industry.

I have known Michelle for a few years now and not many people have as deep of an understanding of the NIL space as she does. She truly cares about helping athletes succeed in this new space and the resources she is providing for all stakeholders is extremely valuable.

NIL has way too many moving parts for coaches to track on – state regulations, school requirements, legal issues. Michelle Meyer started studying NIL six months before it happened, and studying it from the perspective of female and male student-athletes in sports without mega-audiences and million-dollar TV deals. The help she is providing to our coaches is invaluable.

In a landscape that is still new and evolving, Michelle is up to speed on everything NIL.

As NIL grows rapidly and enters 2024 as a billion dollar industry, more brands are jumping in and reaping the benefits of college athletes promoting their products or services. Unfortunately, there is a misconception that only the biggest and most popular athletes can deliver campaign results. Here, College Athlete Influencers explores why that’s not the case and how brands can maximize their ROI through college athlete influencers.
