A streetwear ambassador is someone who a company chooses to act as the face of a brand. They are considered the “task-maker” among their communities, and rely on pre-existing networks and relationships to market the brand. These tactics include sharing posts on social media, networking with other companies and maintaining engagement with the brand. Additionally, a streetwear brand ambassador will represent his/her company at various events.
The brand ambassador might perform product demonstrations, story take-overs or host give-aways of certain products. Brand ambassadors should be very enthusiastic about what they’re promoting and have high-traction social media accounts. He/she must be familiar with the brand being presented. Brand ambassadors play a crucial role in the evolution of a company and the public perception to rise to a certain group of people.
A Brand Ambassador’s Education And Skill Level
The typical education level required for a brand ambassador is a high school diploma. Some job postings will ask for an associate or bachelor’s degree as well. Occasionally, brands hire young adults who are already in school pursuing a degree. Experience is often more important than the level of education an applicant has.
With some social media or ambassador experience, or even just an extensive familiarity with a brand, an applicant is more likely to be hired. An ambassador should have a naturally friendly and charismatic personality, a strong social media following, and a flexible schedule.
