What Is the Value of This Athlete's NIL?
The only Data Driven, Objective way to have this conversation.
Our proprietary algorithm, the Klout Machine Score, measures the value of an athlete’s name, image, and likeness (NIL) both on and off the field. We arm athletes with data to defend what their time and reach is worth. We help businesses find the best athletes for their brand.
What We Do

How do we rank athletes?
We’ve created a marketplace that uses a common currency to value NIL. This currency is called the Klout Machine score and it ranges from 0-100.
This score explains how performance on & off the field relates to exposure – which then translates to a dollar value based on the engagement.
Klout Machine handles all aspects of your NIL deal. As a brand, Sign and Date. As an athlete, Show Up. It’s that simple.
