I am a highly motivated, confident, energetic sales and marketing professional bringing six years of experience to a growing company desiring new media expertise and a dynamic approach to marketing plan development and management. I am skilled in networking with experts in various media fields to develop solutions to the challenges faced by any company in the modern economy. I am a master communicator, team player and customer relations expert. I am ready to reinvigorate a flagging marketing department or support the work accomplished by other executives and directors.
I have had the opportunity to work on one of the most iconic brands in the FMCG industry, Coca Cola. I was part of the team that launched one of the best-performing marketing campaigns in Coca-Cola’s history, that is, the ‘SHARE A COKE CAMPAIGN’.
By specifically targeting consumers who use social media to share photos and stories, as a team, we were able to generate massive amounts of social media content. This gave way to multiplatform conversations on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
As of September 2015, consumers were prompted to create virtual Coke bottles and shared more than 6 million of these bottles. Additionally, Coca-Cola gained roughly. 25 million extra Face book followers, globally, as a result of the campaign.
