Johnathan Jones is a Houston brand ambassador who loves meeting new people and always works with a smile. He enjoys a broad spectrum of events, from everything to event setup and production to working with kids. He is also recently engaged to married! (Congrats Johnathan & Dionna!)
How long have you been doing promos?
Do you have a favorite Oxford Marketing event that you’ve worked?
Definitely the Go RVing/Bassmaster Classic events. Strange as it sounds, I genuinely enjoy jobs that include manual labor. Being part of the set up adds a certain kind of pride and comfort when working the actual activation. I also love kids, and seeing all the little kids run around with their country accents made my day.
What do you enjoy most about being in this industry?
Too many things to count. Of course, there are practical things like flexibility. But organically, I enjoy meeting people. I’ve met some good friends through being a BA! I also enjoy representing different clients. For a day (or however long the activation is) I get to enjoy being that client to consumers and owning it as if I’ve done it my whole life! Whether it’s a truck company, tech company, or sports activation, for that period of time you get to experience a piece of what life would be like in that profession.
What skill should every BA possess?
That’s simple for me. Every Brand Ambassador should possess a true sense of leadership. Leadership to me is not being in a high lofty position. I often argue that it’s the opposite. True leadership is having a servants attitude. A leader possesses the ability to be whatever they need to be whenever they need to be it for the betterment of the task at hand. Whether you are leading a project, working as a BA, or volunteering, a true leader is a true servant regardless of what title they carry.
What are some hobbies that you enjoy when you aren’t working events?
I’m a spoken word artist, so poetry is my passion and I often put that at the top of my list. I also play guitar and can’t go too long without picking it up. Working out is also extremely fun to me! And I’m currently working on my first novel, so I have to add writing. Lastly, I’ve always been a gamer, so whenever I can find the time I do that as well!
