During this difficult time, Brooklyn small businesses need our support -now more than ever. The past year has been so hard for so many, but with your help, we can make this year a bright one for everyone. To achieve that, we have developed a program which will connect local, talented designers with our neighborhood businesses that need assistance with promotion. See details below for how you can join us to bring some inspiration and support to local businesses this year.
What is the Ambassador Program?
A pilot program designed to connect our creative neighborhood talent with our already established businesses in Greenpoint, Williamsburg and Bushwick. All work is pro-bono and will help keep our businesses thrive and our community vibrant. All designers will be featured on this website for their service.
How does it work?
Our team will match local designers, called ambassadors, with small businesses in need. The ambassador will assess the business’ social media presence and will post pictures of the businesses’ products / services on Instagram, Facebook and other social media sites. That’s it! Be creative. Offer a fresh viewpoint, look, and design for your neighborhood business.
How long does it last?
We ask for a minimum 4 week commitment.
Do I qualify? How do I get involved?
If you know how to use social media, and want to lift the spirits of your local business this year…you qualify! Just fill out the form below.
Any other benefits?
Our ambassadors will be featured on this website as a resource for local, creative services including website design, branding, promotional material (business cards/ brochures) and storefront/ awning designs. We support our designers!
I own a business in North Brooklyn. Is there any charge for this program?
This program is free of charge. However, in exchange for the ambassador’s time and service to promote your establishment, please provide a product or service from your business as a “thank you gesture”. For example, if you own / manage a food establishment, kindly offer them a nice meal. If you own a hair salon, please offer a free hair cut. If your business only offers professional services, kindly offer a gift card to a neighborhood business, such as a restaurant or café. Your creativity and generosity will be very much appreciated!
I would like to be an ambassador for a small business that I am already familiar with. Is this ok?
Sure! You can select a business of your choice. Both parties still need to fill out the application below, so we can put your information on file.
