We recognise that our existing customers are our greatest asset when it comes to marketing glawnings. Who better to sell our products than those who are already using and loving them, right? In return you get a free glawning bundle for doing what you already love doing – hanging out at festivals and shows talking about glawnings. You'll also be part of our Glambassador Village at Glampfest!
There are some other perks to the scheme too. Read on to find out more.
At present we are only accepting applications from customers who own a glawning. It’s essential that you know and love the product and are able to talk to prospective customers about your personal experience of your glawning. We have been running the scheme now with existing customers for a few seasons with great success.
Free trade pitch at shows and festivals, a free glawning bundle worth up to £1600 that you can sell on at the end of the season, free tickets to our own events, great experience you can add to your CV and lots of good times!
We also offer special glambassador discounts from time to time and the chance to try new products first.
SHOWS: You will be required to attend a minimum of 4 shows within a year – specifically as a Glambassador. These shows will be pre-agreed with the glawning team (you need to tell us at the time of applying which shows you are interested in attending. The shows you can attend may be limited geographically so that you don’t end up doubling up with other Glambassadors. At other times we might suggest a particular show to you that is not on your territory and requires a few hours driving. It’s entirely up to you which ones you sign up for.
BLOGS AND MARKETING: We really appreciate any vlogs/blogs/pics of your travels for use on our socials and website– we’ll take anything of any length and about anything relevant to our industry, e.g. a recent personal camping trip, some camping gadgets you find really useful, a festival you have attended, meals you like to cook on your stove, or something entirely different of your choice etc. People are interested in real people enjoying glawning/van life and these blogs are really helpful for promoting the lifestyle and community created by the glawning.
YOUR TIME: Sometimes if show set up is on a Thursday or Friday by a certain time you may need to take annual leave from your day job in order to give you the time necessary for travel and set up. It is your responsibility to be aware of set up restrictions of the shows you are attending and leave ample time for journeys.
TRAINING: From time to time we put on training for our glambassadors online or via trial at a festival run by Glawning or Mighty Events for you to attend where possible.
BE A GOOD REPRESENTATIVE OF THE BRAND: Whilst we don’t expect you to remain stone cold sober at these events we would like you to portray the Glawning brand professionally and would appreciate you to be turned out well with a tidy glawning and no tinnies in hand!
Once you are accepted as a Glambassador, we will ship a display glawning bundle to you. You will take this one to the shows at which you are representing glawning. You will need to decorate the glawning and make it look as appealing as possible. You can take your own glawning to the show too if you want if it’s in good condition and if there is room on the pitch or you have booked a separate camping pitch. You might want to stay in your personal glawning with your family, or you might have enough space at the show to display two with different styled interiors.
No, you are purely there to show off your glawning and chat to anyone who saunters by. The product sells itself! You will be sent a supply of marketing materials. You will not hold any stock. When a customer wants to place an order, this must be done on glawning.com and they must use your specific code which we will provide prior to each show. The code is only valid for the duration of the show and up to the Wednesday of the following week. You get an emailed update before every show about anything that is out of stock so you can let customers know when they are buying if there will be a delayed delivery.
No. We supply and pay for the trade pitch and promo material, the latter remains the property of Glawning Ltd. The glawning bundle you receive is free for you to do what you wish with after your show quota is complete.
Your initial commitment is for 12 months – and within this year you must attend a minimum of 4 shows. If this becomes a problem due to unexpected events or illness, we will work with you to manage the situation. This could involve putting your agreement on hold for a number of months until you are able to resume attending shows. You will be asked at the end of the season if you wish to continue.
From time to time we put on training for our glambassadors online or via trial at a festival run by Glawning or Mighty Events for you to attend where possible. We also provide a list of FAQs for you to memorise!
After your initial 12-month period your contract will naturally come to an end. You can then apply to extend this for a further 12 months or disappear off into the sunset - either way the free glawning bundle is yours to keep or sell on as an ex-display (if you decided to stay on you will be supplied with a new one for the following season). If you terminate your contract with us early and do not attend the required number of shows the display Glawning bundle must be returned to Glawning Ltd.
OUR EVENTS: All glambassadors get a free ticket to Glampfest and Glampout every year should they wish to come. Glampfest is our very own family festival raising money for chosen charities and bringing together many Glawning owners and other campers in a big field in North Yorkshire every May to have a fantastic time. You are all pitched together so ‘Glambassador Village’ is a popular attraction and whilst we may ask you to put in a few hours to help us out over the weekend the main aim is for you to have a whale of a time for free as a thank you from the glawning team. Glampout is a completely different and very quiet affair at Druridge Bay where you can relax with your glawning and the most you’ll be asked to do is smile for a group photo.
FREE FESTIVAL TICKETS: Sometimes we get additional tickets for festivals and offer them out to glambassadors to go along for their own enjoyment. These are offered out on a ‘first come first served name in a hat’ basis and are not guaranteed.
You need to complete the application form and submit some photos of your glawning done up to the nines – so that we can be sure you’ll create a really appealing display for us at shows. Once we’ve received your form we will get in touch to talk more.Apply now
