Whether your dream is to become a well-known influencer or you’re a college student looking to make a couple of bucks on the side, becoming a brand ambassador is an exciting step.
But what is a brand ambassador? And how do you become one? Read on to learn more.
What is a Brand Ambassador?
Simply put, a brand ambassador is an individual who is hired by a company to raise brand awareness and spread brand positivity.
Brand ambassadors can be online or offline brand ambassadors. Below is the difference between each.
Online vs. Offline Brand Ambassadors
An online brand ambassador posts about products or businesses on their social media. This might include product hauls, reviews, recommendations, or encouraging online users to attend brand events.
An offline brand ambassador’s number one goal is to create a fun, memorable experience for consumers.
You’ll find offline brand ambassadors at large events like conferences or conventions, using conversation to spread brand awareness.
Some roles and responsibilities that a brand ambassador might be asked of can include:
- Engaging consumers, exciting them about the mission, and elevating the brand message
- Sparking word-of-mouth conversation about the brand
- Spreading brand education
- Donning branded uniforms or costumes to drive brand awareness
- Conducting product demos

How to Become a Brand Ambassador
So, how can you become a brand ambassador? Here are some tips.
Clean Up Your Social Media Profiles
As a brand ambassador, you want to maintain a cohesive online presence. Make sure that your social media profiles showcase who you are and feature the type of brands you’d most like to work with.
For example, if you want to work with fitness brands, maybe you have an Instagram highlight showcasing your love for a certain sport or strength training!
Create and Post Eye-Catching, Shareable Content
Ensure your content is polished and well thought out. Consider what types of brands you want to work with and post content within that same general theme.
Use all media types to your advantage: videos, photos, audio clips, etc. Explore all of the awesome features social media has to offer (*cough cough* TikTok and Instagram reels!)
Be Active on Social
The cat’s out of the bag: You don’t need to have millions of followers to be a successful brand ambassador! What’s more important is that you have an active social media presence. After all, your followers trust you and turn to you for advice!
Be sure to remain active in posting but also ensure you respond to messages, comments, and questions.
