Make ambassadors your megaphone

The influencer marketing industry is changing. Smart marketers are moving away from one-off partnerships with influencers to long-term relationships with all of the brand enthusiasts who matter — including influencers, customers, and more. Enter brand ambassadors. A brand ambassador is any individual, regardless of follower size, who is passionate enough about your brand to promote it, both on and offline. Start the course to find out how your brand could benefit from ambassadors.
