The Ambassador program is by far the most influential way to grow our brand, meet new talented seniors and juniors like yourself. It’s about growing a brand that carries on our beliefs as a brand. The Ambassador program was designed as a way to give back to a select few members of the Senior and Junior community with fun and creative photo sessions to wow your friends and get them thinking about their own sessions. The Ambassador program is designed to be about teamwork, creating a community of people that enjoy photography or enjoy having their pictures taken, and talking about their experience with others. We’ve had huge success with special events including a New York City trip complete with a Blue Man Group concert to cap off the evening, awesome Halloween special events, water and flour dance photography, and so much more.
If you’re up for the challenge, love having your picture taken, LOVE social media and spreading the word about us, this just might be a huge opportunity.
The Ambassador program has been such a vital and successful part of our marketing system that we’re constantly changing and re-developing how our program works and we’ve got some big changes for 2021. As we try new things, we’re met with new challenges that may or may not work. After expanding our Ambassador program in 2020, we’ve decided to cut back in 2021 and really focus on our Juniors and Seniors. We want to be available to you on your schedule as much as possible. We know how busy your schedules are, and as we get busier with more and more clients, we want to make sure we can make the time for you as much as possible. We want to help you through this crazy rollercoaster called life during these unprecedented times of COVID-19. We want to be there for your homecoming and prom pictures even if you don’t get a prom. We want to be there to celebrate your upcoming graduation with grad pictures that showcase your individual personalities. We want you to challenge ME with your visions of something out of this world. If you have this most awesome idea for senior pictures, we want to know about it and make it come true.
Ambassadors for Thomas Kay Photography are our main and exclusive spokes-models (marketing reps). It starts with your fun and unique on location that are tailored to your unique personality. We want you to feel appreciated, and get the most out of the partnership as possible. Most of all, we want you to keep coming back and invite others to work with us. We love our clients and we love sharing the experience of our photo sessions with them and people they know.
Now is where you excel to help us, by telling all of your friends about how much fun and what your experience was like with us, Thomas Kay Photography. We want you to encourage them to choose Thomas Kay Photography for their Senior Portraits. BUT, our side of the deal isn’t over yet; as you refer your friends; they’ll let us know you referred them and/or turn in your Ambassador card for some free wallets. Each referral earns you stuff too!
Senior Ambassadors are chosen based your application, preference is given to referrals from prior year Ambassadors. Have we mentioned the club is exclusive? You get to recommend and help choose next years Ambassadors! Part of being an exclusive Senior Ambassador also means you’re loyal to Thomas Kay Photography. We’re helping each other out! Once selected you’re required to agree not promote another studio or post images from another studio until after you graduate or without consent from Thomas Kay Photography.
Fill out our application to tell us more about you. We are looking for out going and active individuals, who aren’t shy and willing to brag about their session and our studio! In the application more expressive you are, the more we learn about you. Tell us WHY you want to be a Senior Ambassador. We don’t decide Ambassadors based on your activities or clubs, this isn’t a college entrance essay. We are just looking for someone outgoing and willing to work hard as our Senior Ambassador.
You deserve the credit! Make sure your friend let’s us know that you referred them to us. We’ll make sure to get you compensated as such. For every photo session someone else books as a direct result of your referral, you earn a 20% commission. That’s right, 20% commission on every single person you refer. You’ll be making back your application fee in no time.
As we said, we’re really changing things up this year and rightly so. As we’re expanding, our calendar gets pretty full but we still want to make sure we have time for the people that REALLY want our services, and appreciate what we do. Starting in 2021, we’re only going to select a very select few individuals that really want to help us out and we’re adding on a fee to our Ambassador program this year. The fee associated with the program is $400 per accepted applicant. That fee covers the apparel and the time associated with your two photo sessions plus editing time. At $475 per session, plus the costs of the apparel, this saves you well over $540. Not to mention, there’s plenty of opportunities for group photo sessions that don’t go against your 3 free sessions. Remember, we pay commissions. At 20% pay back, that means just 4 paid referrals starts making you money. Did we mention that we also include the digitals? The only thing we DON’T provide our Ambassadors is rights to print.
Thomas Kay Photography is CONSTANTLY adapting and looking to experiment with new creative opportunities. Access to these creative sessions are ONLY available to brand Ambassadors — so you DON’T want to miss out!
