Local Brand Ambassador Opportunity

Your business represents the unique local perspective residents of Raleigh, or visitors, want to experience.

We know how to craft a personable story in a way that resonates and includes your unique selling points.

That’s a strong brand partnership that can benefit you, us, and our community. It’s strength lies most in a partnership built on trust and longevity via consistent messaging.

Consider us your local ambassadors. The personable and trusted voice that can represent your business offerings in a relatable and fun way to our highly engaged community.

Most of our followers know and believe that “if Caz and Craig give it a thumbs up, then it must be good.”

Our ambassador partnerships are with those businesses and brands we can confidently give a double thumbs up to!

Long-term partnerships make better sense and better ROI.

We’ve had long-term relationships with companies such as Allianz Travel (5 years), Globus Journeys, Ford, Canon, Visit Florida, Visit Idaho, Garnier, and Tourism Queensland (2 years). These brands have had repeated, long-term exposure across our global channels and community. Many have called us the “gift that keeps on giving” and Tourism Queensland is still asking us to return home, five years later!”

Our long-term partnerships have involved creating sponsored content via our channels; being present at events; representing the brand as featured experts in traditional media; speaking at conferences sponsored by the brand; and featuring in the brand’s own marketing materials, including print and online advertising and TV commercials.

Our ambassador sponsorships are always front of mind and regularly featured.

The Opportunity
