It’s the most magical time of the year! It’s also the busiest time with a massive opportunity for a boost in sales! So how can you use your ambassador program to help your company increase sales and acquire new customers?

Here are some fun holiday campaign ideas to give your company the boost you need this season!

1. Create a gift guide and have your ambassadors promote it! 

Campaign Idea:Create a gift guide and have your ambassadors pick their top three gifts and post about it! Choose one person that posted their top 3 and fulfill their wishlist.

2. Have your ambassadors give a product testimonial of their must-have product!

Campaign Idea:Have your ambassador post what they would "Ask Santa" for from your brand and have them give a testimonial of why they love this product. For the reward, you could choose one person's wish and give them two of them, one for a friend and one for themselves!

3. Give your ambassadors individual promo codes! 

Everyone wants to hook a friend up with a discount on their favorite products! Why not give your ambassadors a code to share with their friends and family for the holidays?

Did you know that if you are a Shopify client, every one of your ambassadors has the power to make unique codes to give to their friends and family? Even if you aren't a Shopify client, we still have a great way you can track attribution! Contact us for more information!
