WHAT IS AN EXPERIENCE TENNESSEE AMBASSADOR?

An Experience Tennessee Ambassador is someone who represents the South Central Tennessee region well through their photos, videos, and blogs on social media. It can be someone who fancies themselves as a foodie, an outdoor adventure seeker, a historian, or someone who simply loves our beautiful state of Tennessee. Ultimately, it is someone who makes us want to go out and Experience Tennessee.

We're looking for a team of people from all over the 13-county South Central Tennessee region to be Experience Tennessee Ambassadors. We want to feature your amazing adventures and talent, so we're looking for people who are exploring, photographing, and posting about the outdoors, dining experiences, shopping experiences, festivals, attractions, and all things Tennessee. As an Experience Tennessee Ambassador, you'll receive:

  • Experience Tennessee swag (t-shirt, stickers, cap, and other things throughout your service)

  • Experience Tennessee Ambassador Credentials

  • Experience Tennessee Ambassador Service Pin

  • Usage for an Experience Tennessee Digital Badge to use on your website

  • You'll be invited to attend various "FAM" opportunities across the region (familiarization tours)

  • Featured on our website as an Experience Tennessee Ambassador with following instructions and profile

  • Featured on our social media platforms, we will tag you and introduce you to our followers

  • Featured on our blog (we'll share your blog post from your blog if you are a blogger)

  • You will also be able to use the title "Experience Tennessee Ambassador" on your social accounts and website

  • We will also provide you with a letter of recommendation (by request) outlining your time as an ambassador

The ideal Experience Tennessee Ambassador is someone who is passionate about the beauty of our state, small businesses, and exploring the area. We want positive people who radiate positivity and share their talent to help promote our 13-county region here in South Central Tennessee.
