The ambassador application form is what you use to collect applicants for your ambassador program. Once people fill out this form, you can accept them into any tier of your program, which would import them into your Buzzbassador account in order to generate their code and begin tracking their sales.
It's important that you are able to customize this form to ask whatever questions you'd like. You can ask about their follower count, why they want to be an ambassador, anything! Then, you can share this form to start promoting your program.
How to Create Your Ambassador Application Form
1. Navigate to the Application Form page
2. Enter an Application Title
The first field is where you input your Application Title. This title is required, and it will be visible to the ambassadors, so make sure it's correct!
3. Choose from the pre-existing questions
Just under the Application Title field, you’ll see a list of optional pre-existing questions: Phone number, Date of Birth, Address, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok.
These pre-existing questions are there as a default because the data from these questions will populate other parts of the app. For example, the ambassadors’ answers to the “Address” question will populate your Location Card on your dashboard, which shows you where your ambassadors are from.
Even though we do recommend including these questions, ultimately they are optional. If you’d like to remove them, all you need to do is make sure the boxes of the questions you don’t want are not checked (as pictured in the screenshot above).
4. Add your own elements
To add a question or text element, you just need to drag and drop elements from the right side of the application editor. For example, I just added this Header element (in the screenshot below).
Now that an element is added to the form, you'll see an edit icon appear to the top right of the element. To edit the element, click that icon.
Once you're looking at the element editor: In the “Label” blank, type what you want the question (or text, if you're using the Header or Paragraph element) to say. Then, click the "Close" button at the bottom.
Now let's say you're working with a multiple-choice question, like the "Checkbox Group", "Radio Group", or "Select elements. In these cases, you will also need to add the options for your applicants to choose from when they’re answering the question.
To do this, just open the element editor again, and find where it says “Options”. The field on the left side is what your ambassadors will see. The field on the right side is what you will see internally when you’re viewing the completed applications. It’s probably easiest to just make both blanks the same, to ensure that you are able to easily decipher what an ambassador selected for the question.
Once you add all of your options, your ambassadors will then be able to select one or more of the answers (for the "Checkbox Group"), or only one answer ("Radio Group" and "Select").
It’s important to note that for any element, you can require an answer to the question by checking the box at the top where it says "Required".
For some elements, you can also add help text that will appear to the ambassadors in the form of a hover-able question mark pop-up.
There are also other elements you can work with beyond just questions and Header/Paragraph text, such as a date field, a numbers-only field, and even a short-form or long-form text submission field. Feel free to play around with those as well!
5. Save your changes
Now that you’ve built your application form, make sure you save your changes by clicking the yellow "Save" button in the menu at the top of the application form editor.
6. Preview the form
You can also preview your application form with the purple "Preview" button. Keep in mind that whichever logo you uploaded in your Brand Profile will also appear at the top of this application form as a branded touch :)
7. Take note of the referral code question
One last note -- as you can see in the preview of your application form, there is one question that was not present in the editor, which is the one that says "What would you like your referral code to be?"
This question is not in the editor because it can not be edited or removed; it MUST be present in your application in order for the automatic referral code generation system to work. You can read more about how this question & our referral code function works in this article.
It's also important to note that the help text in this question (above, "Ex. Tanya15") cannot be edited, but it is dynamic - meaning, it will update based on the discount rate that your ambassadors' codes deduct. For example, if your program's default Referral Rule is set to offer 20% off, the help text will say, "Tanya20", so that your ambassadors enter their codes using the correct number.
And that's it! Your application form is ready to go.
What if I have multiple program tiers?
If you have multiple program tiers, you may be thinking - do I need to create an application form for each tier? The answer is no! We built this function so that all of your ambassadors can funnel through one application form, keeping it simple and easy for you. All you need to do to keep your applicants separated for each tier is to simply designate which tier you want to accept your applicants into after they fill out the form. You can read more about this process here.
