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.
I have been an ambassador with Imagine Media Consulting since the end of August (seriously, where has the time gone?) and enjoyed every minute of it. Starting out as a journalism major at Georgia Southern University, I switched to public relations the end of my sophomore year. Making that switch was the best decision and I haven’t looked back since.
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.
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.
Last month a few of the Imagineers participated in the Community Bucket Tech Gives Back event. Community Bucket is an organization that’s committed to giving young professionals a platform to connect and make friends in Atlanta, by combining volunteer projects with social events. The Tech Gives Back event linked professionals from tech industries and gave us an opportunity to network with different agencies around Atlanta.
In anticipation of National Coffee Day on September 29th, we pooled the Imagineers for their top picks for coffee around the city of Atlanta. In an environment as fast-paced as Imagine Media, we need to stay fueled and coffee breaks are a key ingredient to our success. Not to mention, the Imagineers also enjoy the occasional the opportunity to step away from their desks and work remotely from somewhere new. Here are our favorite spots to sip, strategize and create around the city.
Most professionals might be familiar with core values as a list of abstract words that get posted on the wall in your office, introduced to you during your orientation and then never heard of again. At Imagine Media we approach our core values with sincerity and they are part of our daily conversations, celebrations and goals. This is why it was huge news last week when our leadership team announced that we were going to make some changes to our core values. The updates included shortening the descriptions of each core value in order to make them more memorable and changing our I-word from “Innovative” to “Integrity.” Given that we live and breathe these core values, it was very important to our leadership team to know that these were still values that resonated with us as a whole. The team was excited about these small, but mighty changes to our guiding truths. So how do we put these values into practice? Check out this list of ways that the Imagine Media team incorporates core values into our everyday processes and long term goals.
