Social Media

Since 2012, I have used social media as a tool to build a loyal community and brand awareness. I have worked with social media for the Northeast Conference, Eye on the Tigers, Based in Wire and WTBU Sports. 

For the Northeast Conference, I used social media to connect with fans during championships. Social media was key in building a loyal following that later allowed me to implement a successful subscription service. With WTBU Sports I revamped our social media strategy, which led to an increase in followers and engagement. 

 

Here are some Twitter Takeovers I conducted.
