Brand Ambassadors

shutterstock_186343736Majestic Ambassadors are individuals who have shown their commitment to Majestic in one form or another. They are not official spokespeople for Majestic, although they do on occasion provide media interviews about our products. The Ambassador’s primary role is to promote Majestic to audiences within their country/location. It is important to know that whilst Majestic may subsidize public events for Ambassadors, Ambassadors are volunteers and not employed by Majestic. They are, however, required to act with honour and integrity when representing Majestic’s interests, and have given a commitment to the Ambassador’s Charter to do so.

The Ambassador Charter

“Brand Ambassadors to Majestic are volunteer advocates who passionately believe in the Majestic project and want to share their knowledge with others.

Ambassadors respect Majestic 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 has already recognized them as people of integrity and stature.

Ambassadors represent Majestic 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, but remain independent and cannot always speak for Majestic on all things. There are times Majestic has to speak for itself and an Ambassador is not expected or able to make promises on behalf of Majestic.

Majestic Ambassadors are carefully invited from clients and users who have already promoted Majestic 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.”
