Brand Ambassadors are friends of Majestic SEO who are located around the world. They are individuals who have shown their commitment to Majestic in one form or another, and continue to promote the work of link building, data and reports which Majestic SEO produce.
The Majestic SEO Ambassador Programme is part of the company’s global marketing plan designed to provide value to both Majestic SEO and Brand Ambassadors alike.
The Brand Ambassadors
Majestic SEO Ambassadors are not official spokespeople for Majestic SEO, although they do on occasion provide media interviews about Majestic SEO products. The Ambassador’s primary role is to promote Majestic SEO to audiences within their country/location; but it is important to know that whilst Majestic may subsidize public events for Ambassadors, Ambassadors are volunteers and not employed by Majestic SEO. They are, however, required to act with honour and integrity when representing Majestic SEO’s interests, and have given a commitment to the Ambassador’s Charter to do so.
The Ambassadors Charter
“Brand Ambassadors to Majestic are volunteer advocates who passionately believe in the Majestic SEO project and want to share their knowledge with others.
Ambassadors respect Majestic SEO at all times and Majestic always ensures Ambassadors can remain true to their own values. They will never be asked to promote a product they do not believe in, or asked to be someone they are not. They are, however, Ambassadors because Majestic SEO has already recognized them as people of integrity and stature.
Ambassadors represent Majestic SEO on a world stage and receive on-going training of the product, giving them insight and knowledge that they wish to share with you when you meet them online or in person. They are often the public face of Majestic SEO, but remain independent and cannot always speak for Majestic on all things. There are times Majestic SEO has to speak for itself and an Ambassador is not expected or able to make promises on behalf of Majestic SEO.
Majestic SEO Ambassadors are carefully invited from clients and users who have already promoted Majestic SEO of their own accord, and shown a customer loyalty as brand advocates, that any business would be proud to have. We trust our Brand Ambassadors and entrust them to you.”
