Day in the life of
Promotional Model – Marcia Cripps
I was a product promoter/demonstrator for Nissan during auto shows, Ferrari during Ferrari One Challenge, in-store wine/spirits demos, and misc. department store products.
It would check in with whoever was leading the project and counting inventory when you got to the location. The task that takes the most time is counting up inventory and setting up the area you will be presenting.
After setting up the day usually consists of interacting with customers and showing samples of the product. Not always, but sometimes you get incentivized with a quota. Usually, there’s a prize to be given away. Most jobs ask for you to take photos with customers or the winner to record that you have done the tasks you’ve been asked to do.
The day ends with counting the leftover inventory, breaking down the station you set up, and packing/sending back the inventory at a local post office.
Pays well around $25-$400/ hour and has perks such as travel/lodging covered and sometimes a makeup/hair artist. “Fun” jobs with unique opportunities.
Inconsistent work. Don’t always know when you’re getting paid.
