I have 10 years of versatile experience in marketing and communications, including 7 years of experience in social media marketing for a variety of B2C and B2B industries and big brands.
I also have extensive writing and editing experience, including magazine articles, frozen vegetable packaging copy, blogs, website copy, viral social media posts, award-winning poems, and a poetry book.
Social Media Marketing
Below are examples of my work as a social media strategist, art director and copywriter for Green Giant.
Timely, Relevant, Brand-Right Content on Twitter:
Barackoli Obama controversy tweet picked up by Wall Street Journal:
In about a year, Green Giant’s account organically grew from <5K to >20K. The growth accelerated after focusing content on helping people #eatmoreveggies.
Shareable Content = People-Powered Reach
The challenge with Facebook is to get both high engagement with your content and reach. You get that through using paid to accelerate momentum of your “people-powered” reach.
I commissioned a food stylist to create a vegetable “gingerbread” lodge. Posted to Facebook where it was shared 40,000+ times. Post migrated to Pinterest, Twitter and other brands’ Facebook pages. Ultimately seen by 2 million+ people for very little paid promotion.
Telling Stories to Create Authentic Connections with Customers
One of our editorial goals for Green Giant was to bring to life the idea that making small, healthy choices each day can lead to big changes.
Through vegetable art, we told the story of a couch potato who decides one day to get off the couch and get fit.
The images of Bruce were posted through the course of a week and got excellent engagement. More important than likes and clicks were the genuinely engaged and positive comments we had from our audience.
After asking, “Who motivates you to be fit and healthy?” we heard from a fan who said her daughter, Nancy, lost 117 pounds by switching to a healthy lifestyle.
I interviewed Nancy for a blog post and she was featured on both our Facebook page and weight management campaign website for her accomplishment.
