As Digital Media and Communications Assistant for Bright Umbrella, one of my primary tasks is managing social media accounts for both the company and our tech podcast, CTRL+CLICK CAST. When I joined the company, I created a DIY strategy for both Bright Umbrella and the podcast.



For both accounts, I followed a similar formula.

  • Based on our brand guidelines, I created a baseline of how to interact in the social media space.
  • I decided on the type of content to share for each account and established basic schedules.
  • I established a system for tracking, analyzing and reporting results and based on that data, regularly revisit goals and fine-tune our practice.
  • I designed optimized graphics to highlight featured content

I write smart, informative content for all of our social media accounts with a daily publishing schedule. I keep the focus, tone and consistency of our brand voice while sharing useful information and creating connections with industry peers and potential clients. For a step-by-step look at how I created these strategies, check out my Social Media Strategy blog series.
