My love for Social Media Marketing began when I was in my second year of university. Like most students, I realised I needed more money and decided to get a part time job to help pay my bills. I worked for a sleep company whose social media was absolutely amazing, and it was my first personal experience with branded social media and digital marketing. I had the opportunity to get to know their Social Media Manager at the time, and through talking with her about social media and digital marketing I completely fell in love! I knew that I wanted to break into social media as quickly as I could, so at the end of my second year I traded my full-time studies for full-time work and part-time online university. I’ve never looked back.
It’s been absolutely amazing! Starting a new job from home in the middle of a pandemic has been…shall we say interesting (Zoom has been a God-send!), but everyone has been so lovely and helpful! I’ve been able to get involved with things really quickly, and am already running client meetings and managing client projects. I feel incredibly lucky to have been welcomed into the team at Twentytwo, and I can’t wait until we’re all back in the office again so I can get to know everyone properly.
I’ve learnt so much! I’ve only ever worked in-house before, so having the opportunity to work with clients from such a wide range of industries has been incredible. I’ve learned that social media can completely change any business, no matter what industry they’re in – you don’t have to have a ‘sexy’ business to succeed online!
I’m hoping to continue to grow my social media knowledge, and learn more about paid social. I’m also hoping that some of my colleagues’ art and design skills will rub off on me, as the only thing I’m currently good at is stick figures!
Give me dark chocolate, vegan pizza, and a dog to snuggle with and I’m happy.
