Brand ambassador programs are the new internships. Companies have started using brand ambassadors at college campuses, tech events, and other places where their customers spend their time. More than just recruiters, or promo guys, brand ambassadors utilize one of the most powerful marketing tool known to man- word of mouth.
We know how that works. Someone buys a product and recommends it to a friend. Who then recommends it to another, until everyone is wearing the same t-shirt. With brand ambassadors, you choose the ones who already LOVE your product. Think about how many Apple fanatics salivate over the new iPhone, regardless of what it may be lacking, and go about telling others why they love iPhones. Here’s how having a brand ambassador can help increase your brand awareness.
The Love is There.
A brand ambassador is basically a fanboy. They get excited over every thing that your company talks about and that is good for you. Your social media calendar is filled with the when to post and what to post out there. When it comes to brand ambassadors, they are the ones sharing your content with others. This helps widening your reach not just to your fans, but also to those who may only know about your product through your ambassador.
They use their love to bring others to a realization of how awesome your company is doing.
Brand Ambassador Make Great Volunteers
Events and marketing go hand in hand. However, there is nothing worst than being at a big conference and only having one person at the booth handing out candy. Brand Ambassadors often participate in the same events as your company. This means that they will already be there. This means that because they love your product, they will sport it.
For example, a company that is selling silicone rings at a sports convention could provide their followers the new color they are pushing out. The company’s target audience is right there, but they may not know about all what you do. By having an ambassador walk around with your product can spark conversations that can lead to a deal.
Brand ambassadors are great at giving your company the feedback you need because they are your consumer. You are basically being handed a what it takes to get a sale off me card. Not only that, but they are very vocal about what the competition is brewing.
As a ‘thank you,’ you could release some spoilers about your product to the Scouts.
Your Content is Here.
Use the brand ambassadors excitement by having them write blogs, or post pictures on Instagram or Twitter. Content is a great way to drive traffic to any site. By letting the your brand ambassadors write about what they love about your company is a great way to gain more traction and sell, sell, sell!
