First of all, hello to the subscribers of Digital Ethos! My name is Kishan and I have joined the team Digital Ethos as a Social Media Consultant. Here’s an opportunity to introduce myself and for you to get to know me.
Mic, check one-two. Wait, this is a blog post. Here we go…
So far I have been self-taught in social media over the last 6 years as I graduated in Media Studies at De Montfort University back in 2011. At the time, I was planning on a career within the media industry particularly interested in advertising. I loved the fact that people could be informed and educated in products and services in different ways through TV, radio, and print. Then came digital advertising!
The first time I was introduced to social media was when I was invited to join MySpace in 2005 (who remembers that?!). Then my sister invited me to join Facebook in 2007, who used it to connect with her university friends. So I was intrigued by this concept of connecting with friends from college and people around the world sharing their passions online. As time went on, I was reading a lot of blogs and articles about the impact social media was having in terms of communication. This is where I was able to guide SME’s and start-ups on how to use social media effectively.
In terms of my previous experience, I have been fortunate to work in agencies and in-house where I was able to plan, create, execute and analyse campaigns based on key strategies. I would state, it is vital to understand the purpose of organic social and utilising it to achieve your marketing objectives before implementing paid social. From this, you will benefit from using paid social in the long term.
My First Week at D.E.
As a newbie to Digital Ethos, I have been welcomed by all of the team which has made it easier to quickly settle in. Already, I have been involved with meetings with clients and prospects which is amazing to see how agile the team is over here. I have gone straight in to understand who our clients are and the projects I am accountable for and there has been a fantastic support to answer any questions I have.
I have enjoyed writing up content plans and analysing social media accounts and picking up on the main deliverables to achieve. I have started to draw up strategies for prospects which excites me to be a part of Digital Ethos where we are continuing to grow and take on projects!
So I expect my coming weeks and months to be very proactive in onboarding, setting up projects and implementing strategies and just like the writings on the wall here “Keep smashing down walls”!
I am also an avid food blogger and you can follow my journey on Instagram – IEatMyWages. On my time away from scrolling down timelines, I am a busy bee who loves travelling the world and exploring different cultures. I’m always looking for somewhere new to go! I enjoy watching Netflix docu-series about crime and mobsters, although I do enjoy watching comedies too!
Thank you for catching up with me and I look forward to working with you soon!
