social media manager
Social media is something that has become both a hobby and a passion of mine. While many people view it negatively, I think social media has an incredible power to connect people and create communities online, and can be so beneficial for individuals who want to spread a particular message as well as for brands and content creators hoping to increase interest in their products or projects.
I love learning about the latest trends on every platform, strategizing about how to best reach an audience, and creating a cohesive and beautiful page. Over the past couple of years, I’ve fallen in love with managing social media for creative projects and the artists behind them. This has allowed me to learn about marketing on both a micro and macro sense; I’ve learned about tailoring each account to its own specific goals, using graphic design and creative copy to draw in an audience, and engaging with the wider community to create a genuine following.
I have run social media for my series Life or Death, Basically from its beginnings in mid-2016, and over that time our platform, particularly on Instagram, has grown to such a degree that we have received incredible opportunities because of the strong content on our page. Tangible things like interview requests, high engagement, and, recently, a distribution deal, but also things like building a community of like-minded people that truly love our content and share our artistic values. I met fans, found friends, and connected with collaborators through that page, and to this day I am very proud of taking it from less than 50 followers to nearly fifteen times that with nothing but persistence and hard work.
In addition to Life or Death, Basically, I also run social media for the new LGBT comedy web series sadfemme, set to premiere on Vimeo in 2019. I also worked on social media for Consentucation Project, a YouTube monologue series created to empower survivors of sexual violence. In the eight months I worked with Consentucation, I more than tripled their follower count and engagement, and increased their viewership through creating engaging graphic design that fit their existing brand.
I love to challenge myself by working on projects outside of my comfort zone, and I would love to help you increase your online following, create a more balanced and cohesive feed, or build a community surrounding something you care about.
