So you want to be a Forever 21 brand ambassador? Well, you aren’t alone. But just what does that mean and how much do they make? These are not to be confused with the in-store sales associates, which they often call brand ambassador. Their online ambassador program is most often referred to as a Forever 21 influencer or #ForeverBabes, which confusingly is also sometimes referred to as a Forever 21 ambassador.
“Do what you love, and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.”
That old saying is just as accurate now as it was back then. If you love your job, it probably doesn’t even seem like work. On the contrary, you might even be having fun on the job.
That advice is all well and good for some hobbies. It’s easy to find a job if you love arguing (lawyer), lecturing (college professor), or working out (personal trainer). But what happens if what you love to do isn’t so easy to monetize?
That’s the case with shopping. There aren’t a lot of companies who will pay you to spend the day shopping. Sure, you can use cash-back apps such as Ibotta or Rakuten to get paid cash-back, but that doesn’t really count as shopping for a living. And it would be pretty much impossible to make it work as a full-time career.
A better option would be to consider a career as a fashion influencer. This means that you will still be around beautiful clothes, and have advanced knowledge of all the upcoming trends. Plus, if you do feel like shopping, most stores offer influencers free clothes or discounts on any of their merchandise.
Forever 21 is one of the many options available to you, should you decide to pursue a career as a fashion influencer.
What is a Forever 21 Ambassador?
For those who don’t know, FOREVER 21, is an American fast fashion retailer headquartered in Los Angeles, California. Forever 21 has locations in shopping malls all over the world. They have 20 locations in Houston, Texas alone. I think at last count they had almost 800 stores around the world.
Originally known as Fashion 21, the first store was founded in Los Angeles on April 16, 1984, by husband and wife, Do Won Chang and Jin Sook Chang from South Korea. Forever 21 is known for its trendy offerings and low pricing. The company sells accessories, beauty products, home goods, and clothing for women, men, and children.
A Forever 21 Ambassador is also known as #ForeverBabes or a Forever 21 influencer. It’s a program where they pay you to promote the clothes they have for sale at Forever 21. Now of course the word “pay” we use loosely because not everyone will get cold hard cash. The more followers you have, the more you’ll get. But on a very basic level, you will get packages of Forever 21 clothing and/or accessories, and Forever 21 gift cards. But we’ll go more into that later.
What are the Requirements to Be a Forever 21 Influencer?
Forever 21 is very specific in the requirements they look for in potential Brand Ambassadors. The good news is, they do allow micro-influencers.
- A minimum of 200 followers
- Follow @forever21.influencer
- Post the image below to your story and then tag @Forever21.Influncer
This does not guarantee you will be picked as a Forever 21 influencer. It’s only a way to be considered for the Forever 21 brand ambassador program. If you want to be a fashion influencer but don’t have a lot of followers, this is a great way to get started.
How Much Does a Forever 21 Influencer Make?
If you are selected into the Forever 21 influencer program you will get a monthly package of clothing and/or accessories from Forever 21. Forever 21 even offers their influencers or brand ambassadors clothing a season before they are available to the public! How cool is that?
In addition, you’ll be sent Forever 21 Giftcards, which you can redeem for any item in their store.
Some influencers sell all the gift cards and clothing they get (after they use the clothes for photoshoots to post on their Instagram) and that can be good money.
Now that being said, Forever 21 as with any fashion company will probably pay you actual money if you have a big enough following. The more followers you have, the more money you’ll make.
So how about it? Are you ready to put your love of fashion to good use by becoming a Forever 21 influencer? Good luck!
