Influencers vs. Brand ambassadors

Both influencers and brand ambassadors can be valuable assets for a brand's marketing strategy, but they serve different purposes and have different levels of commitment and involvement. Here's a breakdown of the differences between influencers and brand ambassadors:


  • Often have a large following on social media
  • Can have a niche audience that aligns with a brand's target market
  • May only promote a brand for a short period of time or for a specific campaign
  • May have multiple brand partnerships at the same time
  • Are paid for their endorsement or promotion of a brand

Brand ambassadors:

  • Have a strong connection and loyalty to a brand
  • Are often customers or fans of the brand
  • Represent the brand for a longer period of time, typically six months to a year or longer
  • May participate in brand events, create content, or provide feedback on products
  • Are typically compensated in some way, but may also receive perks such as free products or exclusive access to events
