Our Social Advocates are driven by their desire to fight hunger and provide opportunities for artisans around the globe to impact their communities. Sales experience is not required, and we are happy to train you in everything you will need to know! However, if you are a rockstar in sales and you’ve ever dreamed of working for HALF UNITED, we’d love to hear from you! Email sales@halfunited.com for more information!

Our Social Advocates are encouraged to be authentically themselves as they share about our beautiful products and the impact they have. Each Social Advocate is expected to sell $250 in products/month which can be met in as little as one social media post or one product sold per month, given the product chosen, your influence and following. We will supply you with a guide to keep branding consistent as you post at least 1 post per month to 1 or more social outlets of your choice. We also expect our advocate team to participate in/watch the monthly Zoom call training so you can be up to date on the latest to keep you as successful as possible. We can’t wait to have you on the team!

Social Advocates are not required to carry inventory, and our teams at the home office are responsible to fulfill the orders placed.

Our home office handles all of the orders, so you don’t have to deliver products. This allows you to have the freedom to focus on your role as a part of the Social Advocate team and grow your business while fighting hunger.
