Making the Calls: Past and Present Philadelphia Athletes On Cameo

Looking for the perfect gift for a sports bettor or Philadelphia fan can be tough. They probably have their favorite players’ jerseys and plenty of other team apparel. If you are looking to up your gift-giving game, a personalized message from an athlete on Cameo.

Besides social media, there aren’t many ways the average person can connect with players. With the rise of Cameo, Philly fans are one step closer to hearing from their favorite athletes.

What Is Cameo?

Cameo is a video-sharing website that allows users to pay for personalized videos from celebrities, athletes and media personalities. The platform launched in 2017 and recruited more than 30,000 celebs by May 2020. According to the website’s current statistics, it boasts 8,149 athletes.

How to use cameo

Cameo celebs offer one-on-one live calls, direct messaging and promotional videos for businesses at varying price points, but the most popular feature is the personalized video. For example, you could drop $1,000 to hear from Philadelphia 76ers exec Daryl Morey or pay $60 for Phillies legend Larry Bowa to wish your parents a happy anniversary. Some high-profile celebrities choose to donate the money they make on Cameo to charity.

Thanks to new NCAA policy that allows college athletes to profit off their name, image, and likeness (NIL), Cameo is gaining traction with young players as a way to make money. 490 NCAA athletes are currently available for video services on the website.
