10 Reasons Why You Should Be a Brand Ambassador

The experiential and event marketing industry is HOT right now.  More than ever, brands are turning to live marketing events to connect with consumers on a personal level.  But that humanization and personalization wouldn’t be possible without the people representing the brand, AKA brand ambassadors.

The primary responsibility of a brand ambassador is to communicate and engage with consumers through face-to-face interactions.  Additionally, brand ambassadors convey brand messaging, assist with giveaways and/or activities, and promote a positive brand-to-consumer association.   Through these interactions, brand ambassadors help to drive brand awareness and form long-lasting connections that create loyal customers.
