Social Media Marketing

I have been going to school for a year, majoring in communications, doing projects for the salon I work at that involve social media marketing, and have taken them on as my first client.  I am handling all of their social media marketing on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pinterest.  I use the analytics provided by each as well as Google Analytics to measure my progress.  I also use Bufferapp.com, and Hootsuite to manage all of the accounts.  This is where I spend most of my focus for my up and coming business.

Creative Writing

I have always been a writer.  For a long time this was just a hobby, until I began my educational career in English Literature.  My Master's furthered my creative writing skills because the world of Strategic Communications has a a very creative backbone.  I was able to build my writing skills, as well as my knowledge of Communications.

Efficiency

Detail Oriented

Attentiveness

Communication

Confidence

I believe the key to success is believing in yourself, and I absolutely am confident in my abilities.  

Appearance

I believe that caring for your appearance is not a superficiality, rather it puts forth the projection that you care.  If you care about yourself, and making sure you are presentable, people are more likely to take you seriously.  The more professional you appear, the more people will be willing to listen to what you have to say.  This is something that I have learned through working in the beauty industry.

Analytical Thinking

Customer Service

I have been in customer service since my first job at Liscio's Bakery when I was 15 years old.  After this, I worked as a waitress for some time, a Dairy Queen manager, and then of course a hairdresser which is where i learned most of my customer service skills.  Although I was providing a service to my clients (doing their hair) I was mostly selling myself.  This required a special kind of customer service.

Objective

My goal objective is to further my Social Media Marketing presence through networking and meeting people who are interested in my specific set of skills, as well as my innovative and creative ideas.
