College sampling promotions and college brand ambassadors!
Each semester at colleges and universities across the nation-marketing firms, event staffing agencies, and brands often pay students to help promote their brands. The brands might be a new energy drink that has just hit the market or a product line that has been around for years. These companies are often looking for very outgoing brand ambassadors to help promote the brand on a college campus. Many of these jobs pay very well and the hours vary. Some brand ambassadors, that are also full time students, that live in a major city often work for multiple companies and represent lots of different brands during the school year. This is not only a fantastic way to make some extra money during the year but is a wonderful way to add to and build up a resume. Ambassadors can gain valuable experience working in the guerrilla marketing field. Most of these types of promotions pay between $10-$25 per hr. If you are interested in signing up to receive emails when events are being held near your school the bes
t thing to do is to research some of the top marketing firms and event staffing agencies. Most of the agencies have a database where you can add your info and make a profile. Then when there is an opening you will receive an email or other form of contact. It is by far best to sign up with as many companies as possible. A good place to start is online at the event marketing magazine and promo magazine, Marketingrockstar.net, and EventPeeps.com Also some companies will post openings for event teams on Craigslist under events or talent. Just like any job, exercise caution of which companies you work with. Find out when and how much you will get paid before you start. Also Google the companies to make sure they don’t have a habit of not paying or paying months and months after the promotion is over. There are a lot of wonderful companies out there however there are some bad ones as well so be careful! Many ambassadors that work hard and give 120% end up as nationwide tour managers and market managers. If you have any questions about a path to becoming a tour manager or market manager feel free to contact us directly. Lucky 415 has been providing college sampling teams across the nation since 2003.
