Freelance Writer & Blogger

Freelance Writer & Blogger
I manage my own website through Wordpress. Prior to setting it up I would read articles on campaigns on a daily basis and tweet these articles to my followers. It gave me the urge to produce my own content and gain some experience in blogging in the process. I write stories on absolutely anything 'as long as its advertising'.

Marketing Masters Student

Dublin City University
I specialised in Digital Marketing during my Marketing Masters in DCU. During the one year course • Achieved an overall grade of 2.1 • Conducted two Google Adwords campaigns for two separate clients. The first was for a start up travel company with the aim to get as many downloads of their travel smartphone app as possible. The second was for a charitable organisation with two main objectives. The first to generate as much funding as possible and the second to drive people who are suffering to specific areas of the website. Both clients were extremely happy with the results that I achieved with their campaigns. • I did an SEO plan for an Irish courier company called Cyclone in which I conduced a full analysis of their website and presented detailed presentation back to them on my findings and recommendations. • I received the highest presentation mark of all students in my class across all modules (86%) and was therefore chosen to represent DCU and speak to BBC NI news team on the current economic recession and how Ireland can market itself given the negative press that it is receiving worldwide.
