I’ve had an interest in Social Media ever since I discovered the Internet during college in the early 1990s. The first sites I visited were online message boards and email listservs. I quickly drew connections between the formation of virtual relationships and group dynamics with the real-world principles I was learning in psychology and sociology studies.
I help companies in three key areas of social media for measurable impact.
Social Media Strategy
Strategy includes online personality branding, voice, service philosophy, online reputation management and partnership development. Every campaign aims at a goal through its target market, whether it is brand awareness, customer service or business development. I identify prospective partners & associations that help reach the target in a mutually beneficial and respectful manner.
Social Media Engagement
Engagement is the execution of a social media strategy. It involves participation with customers, prospects and partners. I have led communication management in several campaigns, including one of the largest social networks on Ning.com. I direct communication policy and coordinate external brand messaging in an authentic manner that serves the campaign goal.
Social Media Measurement
I employ web analytics tools, social media aggregators and vendor partners to help measure the success of a campaign during execution. Through active and passive listening and business analysis, I recommend adjustments in Strategy and Engagement.
