You spend your life online – you are a digital native – but you are also a huge fan of culture across a range of subjects and in touch with what’s happening offline and how that can impact the social space. You know how and when to start conversations, as well as when to participate and when to just listen.

You speak through images, animated GIFs, emojis, short videos, memes, and capture content with everything you do. But you also understand how to speak from the perspective of a brand’s voice, not your own – and in fact can switch between brands seamlessly.


• Identify daily, quick-turnaround reactive opportunities — throw lots of ideas at the wall each day with the agency & client teams and see what sticks.
• Identify & track larger ideas that are not necessarily reactive, but based on observations in the community, as well as contribute to a running list of brand-centric behaviors.
• Be an integral part of brainstorming for larger campaigns, bringing the audience perspective to all ideas.
• Monitor conversation on channels such as Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, TikTok and Pinterest — monitoring both people explicitly tagging the brand and people talking about them without tagging.
