By stepping out of my comfort zone to ask a role model for a coffee, I was able to walk away with some real, tangible words of wisdom.
As I began my journey as an ambassador, I was overwhelmed by all of the new information I was learning. I was engulfed in this new world of social media that I had not seen before. In the forefront, you see Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with advertisements but there is so much more that goes on behind the scenes. With Monday meetings to partner photoshoots I began taking it all in as fast as I could.
Once I graduated and moved back home to Atlanta, I accepted a position to work as a Social Media Ambassador for Imagine Media. Working for Imagine has been one of the most eye-opening experiences for me so far. Prior to the Ambassador Program, I had zero hands-on experience working for a marketing agency and hardly any experience with marketing tools. However, it has taught me how to work in a variety of marketing platforms that will be useful for my future career. I learned that gaining knowledge and challenging yourself will lead you in the right direction.
Our creative team at Imagine Media is the embodiment of hard work. The team begins with meetings and planning on Mondays followed by two photo shoots per day four days a week. They are constantly on the move and will go to great lengths to capture the most creative and challenging content for our partners. The rest of the team is constantly in awe of their talent and love following along on their adventures throughout Atlanta and beyond. We’ve broken down the creative team and their roles below so that you can get to know the team that makes the magic happen.
Earlier this month the Imagine Media team hosted our eighth Double Tap the Keg event. We invited five panelists to the stage to discuss a trending topic: Company Culture. Our panelists came from a variety of backgrounds and shared a great deal of insight on how to attract and retain employees as well as foster or evolve a company’s culture. The panel included Billy Boughey, Jackie Velez, Nikki Strickland, Ryan Tuttle, and Josh Sweeny. All participants contributed to a great conversation around culture and left the audience feeling inspired. ICYMI, we’ve rounded up some key culture-takeaways from the evening.
The Imagineers have taken flight on the motorized scooter craze that’s sweeping over Atlanta. Our office is located a block away from Ponce City Market, a centralized location with lots of trendy spots nearby. With the introduction of e-scooters like Bird and Lime, the Imagineers have become even more mobile and it’s been fun to see how these motorized scooters have changed our professional means of transportation.
