1. I'm innovative, a go-getter, and enthusiastic!
Hello there! My name is Emily Etchart, new to San Diego from Montana. I'm a lover of running, exploring, The Breakfast Club, and, donuts. My degree is in Communication Studies with a minor in Journalism from the University of Montana. I have three years of experience in social media management, content creation, and strategy. Collaborating with others is a strength of mine, but I also work well independently. I'm curious, detail-oriented, and diligent about keeping up with social media trends!
2. I Have a Cute Dog.
Kidding - but really, isn't he sweet? He is Nelson, a cuddly Golden Doodle! Traveling, exploring new parts of the world, and photography are passions of mine. I love the ability to capture even the simplest of moments and make them beautiful. Photography has been a talent of mine for the past two years. (More samples of my work can be found on the homepage of my website!)
3. Experienced in Multiple Realms of Social Media Management.
I have three years of diverse experience in Social Media Management. Previously, I've worked as a freelancer, managed all of the social media channels for the University of Montana (Average Facebook impressions are 28,000 per post with more than 100,000-page likes), and assisted in creating weekly Snapchat content for Ebay and Eye Buy Direct at Deep Focus Advertising Agency in New York City.
4. Knowledgeable in the "Voice" of the Brand.
Regardless who the client is, it's important to understand their audience and what kind of content is relevant for them and their customers. If the client is a beauty brand, hotel chain, or clothing store -- knowing the target audience is very important.
Over the last year, I've worked as a Freelance Social Media Manager for multiple self-sought clients. I manage different parts of their online presence, including reputation and brand management. I create original engaging content through photography and graphics for their audience. Additionally, I create relevant targeted ad campaigns to increase their reach and multiply their impressions.
During my time as a Social Media Manager/Events Coordinator at the University of Montana, I discovered the voice for the university. I managed and created content across their social channels including Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Pinterest, and Twitter. Strong communication with other members of my team was essential. My favorite part of the role was executing creative Instagram Story content which increased the university's engagement and brand awareness throughout the nation.
As a production intern at Deep Focus Advertising Agency in New York City, I saw how an advertising agency functions on a global scale. Calculating burn reports, and communicating copywriting change requests to members of the team were daily tasks. I assisted in art direction during client photo shoots for Ebay, Eye Buy Direct, and Frito Lays.
5. Not Afraid to Hustle.
Working long hours and doing what it takes to keep the client happy are no problem for me.
Thank you for your time and I appreciate your consideration!
