WHAT IS A BRAND AMBASSADOR?
That’s a good question and don’t worry about not knowing because most people don’t!
By definition: “A Brand Ambassador is someone who is hired to represent a brand in a positive light and by doing so they help to raise brand awareness and provide consumers with a memorable face-to-face experience with the brand.”
Simply put, Brand Ambassadors are the friendly people you see wearing branded t-shirts who hand out and demonstrate products at music festivals, trade shows, sports games, nationwide tours, nightclubs, retailers, fairs, concerts, and other super fun places!
Throughout my years as a Brand Ambassadors, I’ve had the awesome privilege of representing big ol’ brands like Nike, Samsung, Chevrolet, Coca-Cola at amazing events such as Coachella, The Super Bowl, Comic Con, and NBA games.
One of the best parts about working Brand Ambassador jobs is that you get access into these hard-to-get-into venues foh FREE-99 and are able to explore and party during your breaks and after your shifts!
During my shifts, I ALWAYS catch myself thinking, “Is this real life? Am I really getting paid to do this?”
The truth of the matter is, it is very real and anyone can work Brand Ambassador jobs and even get started as early as this weekend.
WHAT DO BRAND AMBASSADORS DO?
I get this question left and right and it’s always hard to answer because there are so many different types of Brand Ambassador jobs.
But in a nutshell, a Brand Ambassador’s main objective is to create a fun and memorable experience for consumers usually by:
- Giving away free samples and swag (e.g. sampling at events, high foot traffic areas, within retailers)
- Having people test new products (e.g. testing the new iPad or the new Chevrolet cars)
- Setting up and breaking down events (e.g. setting up 10×10 tents, tables, feather banners, etc.)
- Interacting with consumers face to face (e.g. greeting people at the door, being Emcee, or overseeing a section of an event, etc.)
- Increasing brand awareness by wearing branded uniforms or costumes (branded shirts, branded hats, costumes, etc.)
That’s just a snapshot of what happens during Brand Ambassador jobs but there are a million other ways you can promote a brand once you become a Brand Ambassador.
There are also many different Brand Ambassador positions within the promotional marketing industry that you can be hired for and they all have different responsibilities and even higher pay rates.
You can do everything from managing promotional marketing events, to going on nationwide tours, to even pumping people up as a costume character!
HOW MUCH CAN I MAKE BY WORKING BRAND AMBASSADOR JOBS?
Oooo we’ve reached the question I bet you’ve been wondering about!
It always blows my mind when I think of how much we can make for working Brand Ambassador jobs. You’d think that such a fun and flexible job couldn’t possibly pay well. In fact, you’d think you’d have to pay money just to do what we do!
If you’re just starting out, you can expect to make an average of $20-$25 per hour but that rate can quickly go up once you start managing your own events and going on tours.
Once you reach this management level, the sky’s the limit and you can be earning as much as $50-$100 per hour. Promotional marketing agencies will even start paying for your flights, hotels, and food just to have you at their events.
Yes…they’ll pay for your food…Mmmmm….
I’M SO DOWN! WHERE DO I FIND BRAND AMBASSADOR JOBS?
Brand Ambassador jobs are everywhere!
You just have to know where to look for them.
Here are my 3 of the best places you can use to find Brand Ambassador jobs in your area.
The Brand Ambassador groups on Facebook are surprisingly the most popular and convenient way to find Brand Ambassador jobs.
Just type in “Brand Ambassadors of [Your City]” or “Brand Ambassadors of [Your State]” or “Promo Crew Network of [Your City]” and join as many Facebook groups as you’d like.
Agencies and other hiring managers post Brand Ambassador jobs throughout the day in these groups and it’s great because they are required to include the dates, locations, and pay rates.
To apply, simply find the job poster’s information in the job posting and send them your resume and a couple of nice pictures of yourself.
Facebook is an amazing resource so keep your eyes peeled and apply for the Brand Ambassador jobs that sound like a good fit!
While Craigslist is usually used to sell stuff, it’s an amazing place to find Brand Ambassador jobs as well.
Once you get to your city’s page, click on “Event” under the “Gigs” section of the homepage to find Brand Ambassador jobs near you.
Similar to Facebook, you’re going to want to find the job poster’s information reach out to them with your resume and headshot.
One word of caution though is to be careful who you email your information to. Craigslist is not moderated as well as the Facebook groups are so the occasional scammer may post a job that sounds good to you. Be smart about it and don’t send any of your personal information to any job listing that doesn’t seem legit to you.
With that being said, most of the Brand Ambassador jobs that are posted on Craigslist are very legitimate so definitely don’t be scared to use it as a resource!
I really like Stuck for Staff.
It’s a great website for Brand Ambassadors to register a profile with because it was made specifically for Promotional Marketing purposes and it makes it really easy for agencies to find you for their events.
You get to login and and share your availability so that agencies can see when you’re free and book you accordingly. It’s a great way to be found for Brand Ambassador jobs and most of the agencies that use it are very great agencies to work with.
Brand Ambassador jobs are ridiculously fun, lucrative, and flexible to work as a full-time job or even as a part-time gig and the fact that you can get paid $30-$100/hr just to promote cool brands at cool events is amazing!
If you have a friendly and outgoing personality, this is the perfect way to make some dough, and I’m really excited for you to get started!
I can’t wait to hear abut all of the cool experiences you have out in the field!
