Active social media presence
Blog management experience preferred
You eat, sleep and breathe social media. You don’t think twice about connecting to people on twitter, sharing a story, commenting on posts, starting conversations, capitalizing on trends and generally building excitement wherever you go.
You’ve got a network of 1000s that tune in to your blog to find out what you are going to say next! You capture more attention in 140 characters than most people do in 140 words. You know the best times to post on twitter, pin to Pinterest, join LinkedIn groups or update Facebook. Importantly, you know how to make all the different networks work together in a comprehensive social media management plan.
Also, you love dogs. You could look at pictures and talk about them all day long. They are just the cutest things in the world! You know which celebrities have dogs and even know their twitter handles. You also love event planning, coordination and promotion.
Finally, you are a self-starter who can quickly understand our vision, strategy and UVP and come up with your own tactics in order to advance that strategy. You don’t need hand holding, in fact, you prefer to work autonomously in order to let your creativity soar!
