What is a Brand Ambassador?
A Brand Ambassador represents a company and promotes the company’s products either in person or on-line.
Apple Valley Natural Soap Brand Ambassador/Affiliate Program
We want people to have natural, organic, vegan, cruelty-free, options when it comes to health and beauty products. As a smaller business we do our best to reach people with quality, hand-made natural products, but sometimes we need a little help. The Apple Valley Natural Soap Brand Ambassador/Affiliate program was created so that people who love our products can benefit from sharing them with others via social media (Facebook, Instagram, personal blogs…you get the idea).
Don’t Think You’re Tech Savvy enough to be a Brand Ambassador? Think Again!
Okay, let me start by saying: I have never been a tech savvy person. When I tell people this they think I’m being dramatic. Then I tell how I failed my computer skills class in eighth grade. The story goes like this:
We were supposed to program a short animation of a cat doing the following: walking across the room, picking up a can of tuna fish, eating the tuna fish, turning green, and barfing.
After five hours of sweating over my keyboard and mouse my cat did this:
Turned green, walked…upside down across the ceiling, barfed (while still upside down), completely ignored the can of tuna, and then disappeared.
People don’t question me after that.
Steps to Becoming an AVNS Brand Ambassador
I decided that if I could figure out how to become an AVNS Brand Ambassador, you could too. I spent the entire week attempting to learn the ins and outs of being a Brand Ambassador and even if I’m never successful, hopefully I can give you the start you need to become the best AVNS Brand Ambassador EVER.
Step One: Create an Affiliate Account Through Apple Valley Natural Soap
Once you’re on the AVNS website, click on “More” and then scroll through the drop down menu until you find the “Ambassador/Affiliate Program” tab.
The Ambassador/Affiliate Page will walk you through the process and benefits and at the bottom of the page you’ll see a button that says “Register.” Click on it.
Setting up your account is super easy, as is setting up a Paypal account if you don’t already have one.
Step Two: Set Up a PayPal Account
I’m pretty sure all I had to do was enter my email…
If you know you’re putting all your profits towards more AVNS soap, we have an option for your commission to be in the form of store credit as well!
The trickiest part for me was the actual Brand “Ambassad-ing”
Step Two: Create Promotional Posts
We’ve already supplied you with banners (photos of your fav products) that can be found on your affiliate account. Just download the photo you want to post and then upload it to social media. I love Instagram and Facebook, but I quickly learned that I wasn’t as good at navigating them as I thought. It took me a while to understand that I couldn’t share a click-able link on my Facebook and Instagram stories. The trick is to put your affiliate link (which you can find on your account page) in your bio. And then direct people to your bio.
Not sure what a bio is? That’s okay, you aren’t alone! A bio is a place for you to introduce yourself on social media platforms and is typically under where your name is displayed. A blog is also a great way to share products with others
My First Post
I chose the half-sized bar banner because one of my favorite things about AVNS is the huge selection of unique soaps. I put my affiliate link in my Instagram and Facebook bios so that I could redirect people through my story. My Instagram gives me the option to share the post on Facebook and to that I said YES!
When people purchase through your affiliate link you’ll earn commission starting at 6%!
