What it means to be a Notion Ambassador

  • Notion Ambassadors are passionate enthusiasts who teach and share Notion in these ways:
    • Community building - creating and managing user groups online and around the world, teaching Notion through workshops, courses and webinars, hosting virtual events
    • Content creation - creating and sharing templates, producing videos (livestreams, tutorials, etc.), creating resource websites, building tools and apps, translating Notion into other languages
  • You decide where you want to go and what you want to do β€” we're here to support you!
  • Communities managed by Notion Ambassadors belong to you, not us. Notion will endorse your communities on our official Community page, but we won't be officially involved. If you reach a point where you can no longer manage a community, reach out to us and we'll help.
  • Content created by Notion Ambassadors belongs to you. Notion may sometimes promote non-paid content in accordance with this policy on our Community page. In general, we love to share what you make with a broader audience πŸ™Œ
  • All participation in the Notion Ambassadors program is completely voluntary. We understand that you have many commitments outside of this capacity. If at any point you no longer want to participate, please let us know. There will never be any hard feelings.
  • If you wish to use your position and skills to generate income, that's allowed! Many of our Ambassadors already do this through courses and consulting (and we're super supportive). But, we strongly encourage transparency at all times. Our Notion Consultants program β€” which connects certified consultants to client work β€” is an entirely separate program.

Requirements

  1. Teach and share Notion. You choose the approach you're most excited about. This could be organizing webinars, running a user group, helping out with language translation, creating templates, producing YouTube videos, creating a resource website β€” it's entirely up to you. All we ask is for Ambassadors to commit to 2-3 hours every quarter in service to the community. Do what you're most excited about and let us know what your plans are so we can continue to support you and what you build.
  1. Connect and share. Participate in our private Slack group by actively posting and commenting at minimum once a week. This is a collaborative community that builds on itself to get better every day. We encourage members to share their learnings and creations, ask for feedback, and help each other grow. Members of the Notion team will be in there doing the same :)

Community Objectives

1. Empower others with Notion.

This can and should have many meanings. Maybe you're introducing Notion to new users who have never seen it before through social media or videos. Or you're helping existing users fully realize their tool-making power through a course or events. This program gives you the resources you need to teach and share Notion in ways that make you happy and that feel rewarding.

2. Inspire each other.

Have fun with the product and with each other. Connect with other volunteers who also love building, teaching, solving challenges, creating content, and more. If this community turned into a straight-up chatroom about cool Notion projects and discoveries, that would still be great. This should be a positive environment, with members sharing, providing mutual support, and inspiring each other.

3. Represent Notion in your community.

Community can mean your local geographic area or an affinity group that matters to you. Maybe you want to host webinars for Notion users in Tokyo. Or you want to create videos just for designers. Get recognized as the community leader you are, build a platform around your skills, and equip yourself to convene other users, support them in their goals, and be their conduit to the Notion team.

4. Do good, together.

We as a group have tremendous power to make a positive impact using our knowledge and network. Take the time to create and participate in these opportunities, whether that means pro bono consulting for non-profits that could benefit from our tools, using Notion to amplify underrepresented voices, or helping students learn new productivity methods. Our team works with hundreds of social impact organizations, and many of them are looking for experts just like you to help them get more organized and productive.

Do I have to be a Notion expert to be an Ambassador?
No, you don't! Our dream for this program is to be able to connect people who have been using Notion for years with people who've only just fallen in love with it. Yes, we want to work with Ambassadors who can be of service by teaching Notion to others, but we're just as thrilled when newer users enthusiastically amplify what they've discovered or built in the product on social media or within their own communities. Don't feel like you have to have razor sharp skills to be an Ambassador. If you do join, you'll get there fast anyway :)
Do I have to be fluent in English to be an Ambassador?
Absolutely not! We're thrilled to partner with Ambassadors from all over the world who speak different languages.
Can I apply to both the Champions and Ambassador programs?
No. To provide the most value for members of each community we only accept applicants into one program. If you would like to learn more about the Ambassador program please feel free to check out our community page here.
