Be a Halfbike ambassador
The Halfbike project has come a long way and today thousands of people all over the world ride outside the box. Now we face our next challenge - connect all these people and build strong and vital local Halfbike communities. At the same time we know that finding a fellow halfbiker to share a ride with might be a real treasure and we’d love to help this happen. On the other side, many are curious to try a Halfbike and discover what it truly is, so we want to give them a chance to test ride one locally and learn the basics from a devoted halfbiker.
Riding a Halfbike is a whole new experience and we believe the best part of it is sharing the emotion it brings with others. So, if you happen to share our passion and excitement and would like to join us on our mission, we’d be happy to have you onboard as a Halfbike ambassador.
Here is more or less what we think our Halfbike ambassadors will be engaged with:
• Spread the word about Halfbike in town
• Help build local Halfbike communities
• Find and connect with other keen halfbikers around, ride together and share knowledge and experience
• Arrange individual test rides and help us set up, organize and execute local events. Create a fun and positive ambiance and experience
• Enjoy the ride, have fun and stay positive :)
Basically, there are two main ways to spread the word:
Good old offline:
You probably know from experience that the Halfbike is a real conversation starter, so meeting new people who’d like to know more about it would be easy. Just take the bike out to a nice place nearby and they’ll inevitably pop-up. The ambassador’s job consists of introducing the Halfbike to people who show interest. You could demonstrate how the bike works, let them try it or just have a chat. Whatever you feel adequate for the situation.
Each ambassador will have access to a set of online tools that will help him connect with other halfbikers and people that want to try it. The whole idea behind the online tools is to allow you to ultimately spend more time out, enjoy your Halfbike and do it in a good company :)
Locator: We’ve created a locator for our website where each Halfbike ambassador is pinned on an interactive map and has a dedicated profile page. This way, everyone interested in the Halfbike could contact the ambassador nearest to them and ask for a test ride.
The locator also has a built in messaging system, which allows ambassadors, halfbikers and subscribers to send messages to each other. Therefore setting up a ride with a fellow halfbiker(s) or a demo for a person eager to try the Halfbike will be easier. Everyone’s contact details will remain hidden and you’ll only exchange email, phone number or other personal info with the other person if you like to.
In addition, during the past two years we received a lot of inquiries from people all over the world, curious to see and try a Halfbike. Our ambassadors will be able to notify those people for any activities, events or test rides that they make in the area.
Local Facebook pages: There are places where the concentration of halfbikers is significant. Especially in larger cities and metro areas. So, we’d help our local ambassadors create and moderate a Facebook page which will be open for keen halfbikers from the area to join and meet each other. The page will also be pinned on the locator and this will increase visibility and drive people its way.
Event maker: This will allow any ambassador to create an event on Facebook which will also be pinned on the locator. In addition, notifications about the event will be sent to all halfbikers and subscribers in the area.
Forum: Another thing we are currently working on is a Halfbike forum where everyone interested in the Halfbike could share a thought or ask a question. Naturally, we hope that our ambassadors will be a vital part of it. Note that the forum is still a few months from launch as it’s still in development.
Last but not least, each Halfbike ambassador will be provided with a set of coupon cards. Each card has an unique coupon code on it, so when someone is interested in purchasing a Halfbike you can give them a card. By using the promo code the person will get 5% off one order at halfbikes.com. Thus the customer will be motivated to use the card and not just place an order without it.
The ambassador who gave the code will then receive 10% of the order’s amount as a commission. You’ll receive a notification and a payment from us for any order made with one of your codes. In order to do this, you’ll need an email linked to your PayPal account since this is where all the payments will go through.
