How It Works

We’ve made finding that one-in-a-million easy.

Of course you’re wanting to know our secret—how do we do it? How are we able to match Field Agents up with brands so perfectly? Well, it’s not such a huge secret. And no, it’s not magic either—just seems like it.

Our Field Agents are already eating, sleeping, breathing and dreaming about your industry, vertical, category and products long before they even become a candidate to work for you. You’ll be able to see just by glancing at their Instagram profiles—they embody the spirit of your brand. That’s who we’re looking for.

Step 1
Target Persona. We examine the essence of your brand—an exploration of its purpose, products, people and your plan to dominate.
Step 2
ThirdChannel Platform Matching Algorithm. We begin bringing your business objectives to life by matching your brand up with vetted Field Agents who align perfectly with your brand purpose.
Step 3
Suggested Matches Generated. A rolodex of thousands of relevant reps becomes a shorter list based on factors such as social influence, geography, availability, lifestyle, education and experience.

It’s kind of like Uber meets Match.com because we manage it all on our end—only better because they’re excited to meet you from the get-go, because an online date isn’t going to spend every day passionately helping you exceed your sales goals—and because they show up 100% of the time. Voilà!

Step 5
2% Matched! Once they pass our test to ensure they’re truly the best for your brand—then they become yours. Yes, all yours.
Step 4
New Background Check and Validation Interview. A short list becomes an even shorter list of near-perfect matches. We then conduct background checks and interviews.

We needed to be sure our brand was represented the way we wanted and that there was continuity of presence at retail.  We needed help with our launches and we couldn’t be in all places at once. ThirdChannel Agents are more like brand ambassadors that are within the demographic; not just a merchandiser.
