Earlier this month, I started working for See3 Communications, a digital agency for nonprofits and social causes. Because I’m equal levels of ambitious and slight crazy, I moved to a new apartment the same week I started my new job. This is why I haven’t had much time to tell people about it until now.
But alas, I am excited, and I never miss an opportunity to talk about myself at length. So here are some of the frequently asked questions I’ve been fielding about my new gig.
Wait, what were you doing before this?
Working at a fabulous social media marketing agency called SocialKaty. Highlight reel: got Google Analytics certified, wrote hashtags for a living, developed a SnapChat marketing campaign based on weed jokes, worked with a crapload of cleaning franchises to get their Facebook pages up and running, and Kevin Hart retweeted me.
Fun Fact: SocialKaty merged with Manifest Digital recently. This means my talented SK buds have a ton of creative and operational resources at their fingertips and I can drink out of the in-office keg tap when I stop by for a visit.
What does See3 do?
See3 works with nonprofits and social causes to engage and activate people. They develop strategies and create media to make an impact around nonprofit goals like fundraising, advocacy, awareness, recruitment. They have a killer video production team, a talented web dev crew and some skilled social media coaches, and offer pretty much any kind of communications service a forward-thinking nonprofit could want. (Not going to even start on products because this is not a sales pitch, but those are cool too.) If you’re doing social good and you need help with your communications, they got you.
What’s your new title?
Content Marketing Manager
What does that mean?
Content marketers create and distribute stuff their audiences find genuinely valuable with the goal of driving those people to action. In my role at See3, I’ll be developing our in-house content marketing strategy and revising our website, email, blog and social media properties so that they speak clearly to the people who are interested in our products and services. I’m also working as a marketing specialist for some of our amazing clients, revamping our sales and data capture process, and assisting with business development. One co-worker referred to me as the Director of Awesomeness. On my most productive days, that almost feels appropriate.
How do you like it so far?
Two thumbs way way up. My colleagues challenge and inspire me. My clients are doing amazing work that brings good into the world. The work I’m doing is exciting and motivates me to learn new things every day. And apparently when we move to our new office this fall there will be office dogs. Into all of it and incredibly grateful for the path that got me here.
