HERO Event Ambassador & Online Marketing Internship
This Fall Internship is 70% engaging with young athletes and their families at local sporting events as a brand ambassador. Each weekend HERO attends sporting events (typically swim meets) where we sample HEROFUEL and engage potential customers. This requires approximately 5 hours on a Saturday and/or Sunday and consists of setup/take down, sampling product, handling customer transactions, and speaking with interested parties. You will be paid (wage+commission) for each event you attend.
The remaining 30% of this internship will be working closely with the founder to execute an online content & marketing plan consisting of:
- Social media posts (Facebook & Instagram)~2-3/week
- Blog posts (nutritionist/influencer guest posts, company & product updates)~1/week
- #TeamHERO featured athlete profiles ~1/month
- Email campaigns~1-2/month
This portion of the internship is unpaid.
This is an opportunity to work with a new company and get hands on experience in building and growing a business. HERO has established itself with hundreds of families in the Bay Area as the best nutrition bar for young athletes and now it's time to grow even more! That's where you come in! If you are a self starter and interested in working with a startup and learning about online and offline marketing, then this role is for you!
Outgoing/Personable- As mentioned, 70% of this role will involve being a brand ambassador at events. You will have strong support from our team but this still requires regularly engaging people in a friendly manner. Retail or sales experience is a bonus.
Strong writer- As an e-commerce based business, we communicate with our customers through the digital medium whether it's our website, email, or social media. In order to effectively communicate, you must be a strong writer.
Responsible- This role comes with a great deal of responsibility. While at events you will be representing the HERO brand and dealing with cash and transactions. In addition, we are not a large company that will watch over you closely and hand you a neat to-do list each day. In many cases you will be responsible for developing your workflow and owning it.
- General interest in health and nutrition
- Experience working with kids in youth sports a bonus!
- Big bonus if you have swim experience as our biggest market is young swimmers!
