They’re everywhere! You can hire them, we see them in the limelight on international television all the way down to that small café only few people outside a village know about - they come in all forms. Ambassadors to their sponsorship deals, and ambassadors to their local firm producing whatever it is they produce. In every instance, they all have the same effect – promote the brand they’re carrying – in a good way.
It has been going on for more years we care to think about but it is done because it works, it’s effective, it’s professional and it’s organised. For those reasons, it is a timeless continuation that brings business and sales to those who advertise their brand.
People Behind the Brand
Having Brand Ambassadors show the public, your customers and your prospective customers you don’t just exist inside a computer but you are actual humans who make the cogs of the brand name work.
For any company, you don’t have to hire these people. Why? Because they’re people right under your nose - your employees!
Employees are an excellent way to get your company and your brand looking professional and recognised in the market place. Not only that, but also within your business as well.
Portrayal of a Brand
In recent times, I have visited a couple of factories, a car manufacturing plant and product assembly plant. One factory was in a fully comprehensive uniform and one in a sparsely allocated uniform, were the staff could have been simply brought in for a couple of weeks to fulfill their peak demands, or were their management couldn’t be bothered with the hassle of a uniform for them. Needless to say, the car manufacturing plant looked professional and the employees probably felt the company that uniformed them would well have had a greater moral rate. The other, probably not as inclined to feel part of the team, or the company, and maybe not operate at the full potential of their capabilities.
It doesn’t have to be expensive to produce a branded effort for staff uniforms. However, no matter how big or small you uniform branding is, it will certainly show professionalism and pay dividends to your company as your employees become ambassadors to the brand.
Even out and about, it makes for an instant friendlier person to approach – why? Because the approaching person has a question about the product, brand or service they bare and that is their introduction.
For sponsors and business’s selling a product, their sales would be no where near if they didn’t have the advertisements and brand ambassadors out their to get it recognised.
For manufacturing, a company with a factory full of employees wearing a branded uniform would go so much further on the professional scale than a company who didn’t have recognition.
As with front of house staff - probably one of the most important sectors where a uniform is absolutely needed; without it, you may as well be invisible.
The above statements probably doesn’t need to be thought about that much to understand it is almost 100% true.
