WHO AM I?

I am a Digital Marketing Analyst at Seafoam Media. It’s my job to convert measurable data into actionable results for our clients.

MY MISSION AT SEAFOAM:

WHY I LOVE WHAT I DO:

I’ve always loved solving problems. Diving into data and numbers to find ways to move the needle for our clients creates unique challenges and gives me the opportunity to find new solutions to age-old problems.

MY QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE:

Prior to joining Seafoam Media, I worked at a direct marketing agency in New York City for 4 years. I learned classic methods for reaching customers and growing brands.

I also worked for the largest online chess website, Chess.com, for 4 years. I worked extensively on growing our online presence along with managing our analytics for our streaming video content.

IN MY FREE TIME…

I play a lot of chess, despite being deeply mediocre at it. I’m in a bowling league, despite being deeply mediocre at that, as well. I love spending time with my fiance and my dog, which I am fantastic at.

To maintain a graceful and professional presence while going above and beyond to both make clients happy and collaborate with the team in a positive manner. Basically, to be awesome at my job and continue learning throughout this journey I have been lucky to embark upon.

I want to be the bridge that helps lead everyone safely to the other side. :-)

MY QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE:

I have experience in digital marketing, content writing, coding, and client relations. I believe my plethora of experience is vital in working to be a successful and vital addition to my clients' teams.

IN MY FREE TIME…

I spend time with my puppy Piper, Roku & chill, cook spicy things, write "stuff," read memoirs, watch horror movies, hike when I am lucky enough to be in the mountains, travel (ultimate goal: Machu Picchu in 1 year + Belize!), and enjoy being an "amateur photographer."

Going, Going, Gone: Social Media and FOMO

By Holly Sinclair
Industry Insights

The fear of missing out (or FOMO) can drive us crazy and make us technology obsessed! But it can also be an amazing motivational tool. Maybe you will be inspired by seeing your friend run a 5k to get those running shoes out, or that jealousy of your coworker’s beach trip will get you planning your own getaway! FOMO only stinks when it starts to affect your life in a negative way. However, it can also make you get off the couch, inspire you to achieve your goals, and get going. And for marketers, a sense of urgency is an incredible tool.

To correctly use FOMO in your online marketing, you should understand how to use the concept on each social media channel. You’ll want to understand what each channel is for, why your audience is using it, and who they are. To shine, you need to create compelling content that caters towards your demographics.

While FOMO can generate some debate about marketing and ethics, we think a smart marketer can use it in an honest, yet profitable, way for their business or clients. The below infographic will help you understand how creating a sense of urgency for your product or service can really work for your social media strategy in this day of instant gratification.
