Unlike most agency field teams, our Brand Ambassadors aren’t preoccupied with getting a paycheck. Quite simply, they’re focused on bringing innovative brand stories to life. Mariano Events takes pride in guaranteeing that our partners are represented professionally, enthusiastically and authentically at all times. All Brand Ambassadors in our nationwide database are carefully screened, interviewed and thoroughly monitored. Before representing a new product, Ambassadors receive detailed training presentations and are required to attend virtual calls covering everything from brand history to top product selling points. In addition to coordinating Ambassador availability, we communicate with appropriate store/event personnel to schedule and confirm logistics.

From event photos to consumer feedback, our team provides clients with comprehensive weekly recap reports. We’ve invested in advanced software where Brand Ambassadors check in and out of demos and upload detailed recap reports. These reports contain both qualitative and quantitative event insights to highlight the ROI your brand is getting. Whether it’s documenting the number of product samples handed out or tracking preferred flavors, our team is ready to get you the customized feedback you need. All Ambassadors are required to take interactive photos of demo displays and customer-product interaction; we recognize the importance of visual imagery and its power to build & sustain brand awareness.

Products only tell one part of a brand’s story. The rest of the narrative can be conveyed through meaningful experiences--ones that go beyond making a sale and developing short-term recognition. Mariano Events matches clients with purposeful venues and event opportunities that support and encourage healthy, active lifestyles. Sampling your product in grocery stores is an effective way to engage every day consumers, but engaging in real-world scenarios brings higher value. Our team plans fun, educationally driven pop-up samplings to showcase your products in unconventional yet opportune settings. From coffee shops to fitness studios, our team is ready to connect you with our extensive network of popular venues which align with your target market.
