What Is A Hair Brand Ambassador?
Quite simply this is a person that you pay to promote your hair or product.
Finding a Brand Ambassador
How to find the right brand ambassador has a couple of factors you will want to look at:
Their Social influence
Will it be a Celebrity
Will it be a salon owner or someone that works in the salon
As they are going to work hard to get you sales you should create a nice package for your brand ambassador and provide them with all the tools to bring in the sale.
Brand Ambassador Kit
Your brand ambassador kit should include:
Example of this would be clean boxes, silk bags, lots of cards and flyers.
A thank you card
Maybe some sweets.
Include samples that they can showcase
Some people have added perfumes, lotions, or face mask , brush, eye patch to the kit
Sample of hair treatment based on the type of hair you sale
If they have a huge following, you will want to go all out!!!!
If you want to get in contact with a brand ambassador a simple inbox message will do
The main key is to get as much exposure as possible
A good idea would be to watch other Youtuber’s and see what they received and maybe you will find inspiration from it.
Having a contract is a must I cant stress this enough.
There are a lot of scams out there and you need to keep your business and product safe.
Your contract should be very detailed.
As far as celebrities go some will charge anywhere from $100-$500 for 24 hours of promoting your hair on their feed or page.
After which they take it down.
Try to find celebs with 600k+ followers
Depending on the celebrity, it can cost your anywhere from $1,000-$3,000 for 3 posts on their Instagram.
You also have to make sure that persons audience is the people you are trying to sell to because most of the time if they are promoting something the people don’t usually wear then still no one will buy it
You should also offer your brand ambassador more than just free hair.
Offer them commission based on the sales they bring in.
The percentage can range from 10-30% based on how many sales they are bringing in
So what Is the best way to hire or contact a brand ambassador for your hair business
There are some Facebook groups that are pretty active with people looking to be brand ambassadors
Some people will do it just for the free hair.
If you are just starting out you may not have the option to just give out free hair. So you will have to find someone that is willing to buy your hair maybe at a discount and then give them a percentage of hair sells that they bring in
Don’t allow them to promote any other business while promoting your hair
How to get in touch with celebrities to wear your hair
The easiest way to do this is just by simply going on their Instagram page and finding their booking info.
Get in touch with them through email or phone.
Most likely you will talking to their manager the whole time.
You will more than likely need to provide the hair for free.
Large Following vs Influencers
This is something you really need to pay close attention to.
Finding someone that has 1 million followers and will only charge you a couple hundred bucks might sound enticing but if the people that follow them aren’t focused on hair then you will see a lot of traffic and little to no sells.
An influencer is the type of person Chinese companies hire to promote their hair.
These are the typically the hair reviewers you find on Youtube.
This is valuable because all of their followers/subscribers are focused on one thing. HAIR!!
More reasonably priced
They have a huge following and will only charge around $25.
A following of 2,000 or more is a reasonable start
A following of 500k+ even better.
This is a great option because like you they are starting a business and for the most part will go above and beyond to deliver something worthwhile.
Also its another video for them to put on their profile.
I have an update list of Youtubers that are looking for new clients to review hair for in this article:------------
