The Running Buddy Launches Brand Ambassador Program

From high-profile athletes and runners to busy moms and avid travelers, the brand’s new ambassadors are telling their own stories 

CharlestonSC  Over the past two years, The Running Buddy, a retail brand selling innovative lifestyle products, has exploded in popularity. The Running Buddy is best known for its line of Buddy Pouch products, which are water-resistant pouches that magnetically attach over any waistband, allowing users to store essential items like smart phones, credit cards, ID, cash, keys, and more right at their hip. Though the pouch was originally designed by a runner for other runners, the accessory quickly sparked the interest of other individuals, including avid travelers, dog trainers, parents, allergy sufferers, students, and beyond. It was even featured on QVC three times in the past year.

Due to their growing loyal fan base, Running Buddy owners Julie Bradfield and Greg Smith decided it was the perfect time to introduce a Brand Ambassador program. “One of the best parts about what we do is having the opportunity to hear our fans’ stories,” said Bradfield. “So it seemed natural that the next step was to give those fans a platform to share their stories with others, thus creating a positive community around our products.”

Running Buddy Brand Ambassadors are invited and encouraged to share their thoughts and collaborate with other ambassadors in a variety of ways including: social media outreach and engagement, sharing audio or video clips, outreach to potential Running Buddy retailers, writing informative blog posts or articles, sharing photos from marathons and other activities, and more. Upon being invited to become a Running Buddy Brand Ambassador, these individuals are provided with program details as well as an ambassador badge that they can use on their social media accounts, blogs, or websites.

Several Running Buddy Brand Ambassadors are currently featured on TheRunningBuddy.com, with additional ambassadors to be added as the program continues to grow.

The Buddy Pouch and other Running Buddy products are currently available for purchase online through www.TheRunningBuddy.com and through Amazon Prime. Buddy Pouch products are also available to retail stores across the country.
