Staffing Toronto :: Perks of Being a Brand Ambassadors

What is a Brand Ambassador?

A brand ambassador offers the opportunity to personify a brand’s values while creating uniquely crafted consumer experiences for potential leads. Overall, it’s a great goal-oriented way to meet and interact with new people, create memories and diversify your network. Being a brand ambassador means being the face of a brand by creating a positive consumer experience and leaving a lasting memorable impression.

These positions are high in demand, especially in the larger Canadian markets such as Calgary, Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal. Tigris Events Inc. is an event staffing Toronto agency that recruits brand ambassadors from all over the country to represent reputable brands such as Facebook, Google and Nike.

According to a global report by Olapic, 76% of individuals surveyed say that they’re more likely to trust content shared by “normal” people than content shared by brands – and that’s where brand ambassadors come in. Whether it’s handing out free swag or distributing promotional material, brand ambassadors are a crucial part of any experiential marketing campaign.

The Role of a Brand Ambassador

Often, a brand ambassadors’ role includes generating leads, engaging with attendees, distributing promotional materials, spreading key messaging and much more. Staffing Toronto agencies look for high energy and outgoing individuals to work events. Candidates often describe the position as “too good to be true” because there are so many reasons why it’s the ultimate job; here’s to name a few:

#1 Flexibility

Wouldn’t it be great if all jobs worked around your schedule? Essentially, being a brand ambassador allows you to be your own boss and determine the hours you want to work. There’s an opportunity to take full time or part-time work by picking up shifts based on YOUR availability. Even though this line of work doesn’t guarantee stable hours, many brand ambassadors’ are also students, actors, etc., looking for the flexibility.

#2 Competitive Pay Rate

Being a brand ambassador is an excellent opportunity to generate a second source of income. Many brand ambassadors work in the industry while also working their full time job or completing a degree. It’s a great way to earn some extra cash, and gain experience in addition to your full-time job or studies. Extra money in your pocket is pretty sweet, I must say.

A brand ambassador makes anywhere from $17 – $50/hour. The pay rate depends on the length of the shift, the volume of shifts, and what responsibilities you will take on. Often, there are opportunities to increase your pay by taking on team lead or event management positions. You can also expect a higher wage if the promotion requires a specific skill, which can include anything from mascot work to acrobatics. Recently, a client requested to have two promotional poker dealers work a private event, and because it’s a specialized skill, we compensated the staff at a higher wage.

An increased pay comes with increased responsibilities, which can include managing a team, coordinating breaks, communication with coordinators and clients. Working as a brand ambassador allows you to develop new skills and find a unique way to showcase your talents while networking.
