A brand ambassador is basically the ultimate form of "word of mouth" advertising. It’s a person that represents your company in the public space and talks about your products or services in such a way that it makes other people want to be customers. But how do we identify them?

5 Key traits for a good ambassador

1. Established relevant online presence

Visibility is key when identifying your ambassador, Look for influencers that are making waves in similar circles. They may be customer that is already a fan of your brand, or perhaps someone who already promotes a lot of your brands values. You are looking for someone who comes across as genuine and credible in their line of expertise. Look at the kind of people who are following them on social media, look at the comments and the way that they respond to their audience. Do they sound and behave like your customers?

2. Knowledge and appreciation for marketing

Being a brand ambassador can a nuanced job and calls for someone who understands what you need for the role.
