REVOLVE Launches Brand Ambassador Program

Revolve Launches Brand Ambassador Program

In 2021, REVOLVE, a next-generation fashion retailer for Millennial and Generation Z consumers, launched its innovative Brand Ambassador Program. This program marked a significant milestone in the company’s influencer marketing strategy and established a new direction in the social commerce arena for digitally native retailers.

The Brand Ambassador Program was designed to empower everyday customers to operate as influencers and get rewarded for engaging with their favorite brands and products. Ambassadors apply on FWRD’s homepage and are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Once approved, they share their favorite products by linking to their social channels via a customized landing page. Commission on applicable sales can be paid in the form of cash or shopping credits on REVOLVE/FWRD.

The initial launch of the Brand Ambassadors in 2021 resulted in the onboarding of over 30,000 members and drew a waiting list of 10,000 applicants. During its nascent period, the program rapidly became one of REVOLVE‘s top sources of traffic, generating incremental net sales and yielding dynamic data insights that will further inform the company’s connection to and understanding of its customers and brands for years to come.

REVOLVE’s Brand Ambassador Program offers various incentives, including commissions, early access to new brands, participation in exclusive events like #REVOLVEAroundtheWorld trips, and access to events such as REVOLVE Festival. Top sellers also have the opportunity to create an X REVOLVE capsule collection, which underscores the retailer’s position as a powerful platform for the amplification of brands and influencers.

A dedicated in-house team under REVOLVE’s Brand Marketing division leads the vetting process for potential ambassadors. Evaluation considerations include factors such as platform diversity, high-quality visual approach to content, history of engagement with followers, and audience size.

The average yearly pay for a Revolve Solar Brand Ambassador in the United States is approximately $45,000, which meets the national average. With the launch of the Brand Ambassador Program, REVOLVE aims to create new avenues for its community to exercise the power of influence and enhance the customer experience.
