May & June, That’s A Wrap!

projects, social media marketing

It has been another busy month, and I couldn’t be more happy about it! A major highlight to note: I won “Best Local Social Media Professional” for Mashable’s Social Media Day Tampa Bay 2017! Look for a separate post about that coming up, but for now, here are some work samples from May and June!

Creative Mornings St. Pete

I love being a piece of the Creative Mornings puzzle via the local [St. Pete] chapter. Every month I get to help out by snapping images from the events. These are some of my favorite captures from May and June’s events.

May

 

June

 

Number 9 Salon

In May and June, Number 9 Salon wanted to focus on trending topics, so naturally festival inspired videos and pride-infused content were our go-tos. Enjoy!

 

Morean Center For Clay

Joe Pintz’s solo show at the Morean Center for Clay turned everyday objects into masterpieces. I was able to create some content for them to help tell that story. 

 

USF Alumni 

Here are some super-fun content samples that did well in May and June for USF Alumni, Pinellas.

 

H2H Social

Social Media Day 2017 was a hit! Here’s the back-story of the celebration, where I also worked in a CTA to “Vote for Rachel” for best social pro in Tampa Bay! (It worked because later that day, I won!)

DTSPeats
“At Home With DTSPeats” is a fun way to give a recipe to followers through video. I’m already cooking up next month’s feature!

March & April Work Samples

projects, social media marketing

As we transition for Q1 to Q2 and from winter to spring, let’s recap with a few pieces of content from the last two months!

Number 9 Salon

Video has proven to be the most effective and engaging form of content on Number 9’s channels. Here are some user favorites from March and April.

USF Alumni

Again, I love dabbling in graphic design; especially when it’s for my alma mater! I was happy to help USF Alumni get the word out about their Spring Social.

Creative Mornings St. Pete

I joined the Creative Mornings St. Pete team as an event photographer. For the first go-round, I focused on capturing the event details, from signage to candid interactions. Check out the photos!

H2H Social

Never underestimate the power of simplicity. I loved making this content checklist for my company, H2H Social. It was a top performing post, too!

TED Talk: Passion Triumphs Over Failure Every Time

inspiration, ted talk

A few years back I hit a roadblock professionally (also known as “writer’s block), and a near/dear friend of mine sent me this TED Talk given by Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of Eat, Pray, Love.

From time to time I revisit the talk, and I love sharing it with fellow creatives/professionals.

If you enjoy a good TED Talk, regardless of your passion or industry, this is a must-watch that can be used over and over again.

Quotable from the talk:

“I loved writing more than I hated failing at writing.”

Update: January & February Content

projects, social media marketing

G’day! It has been quite a few weeks since my last update, because things have gotten pretty busy around H2H Social HQ. Here’s an update on what I’ve been up to.

  • First off, I have been shooting more and more photography with the brands I’m working with. Below are some behind-the-scenes shots from Number 9 Salon, plus some fresh head-shots to help spruce up Thank You Mama’s website.
  • Here are some videos I made throughout January and February, including the world renowned Florida Heat Woodfire at the Morean Center for Clay, as well as new Number 9 Salon content, and a couple website videos for Thank You Mama; all located in downtown St. Petersburg.

  • I was also excited to do a few more graphic designs for social sharing. Check them out.

 

  • Lastly, after having a brainstorm with Number 9 Salon’s CEO, we wanted to create a fresh vibe on Instagram that would be more consistent with appearance. So, I created three forms (I call them “pillars”) of content: 1) black and white imagery/video 2) before and after polaroids 3) just great hair.

Here’s a screenshot of the final product, but you can also check out the Number 9 Salon Instagram, to see what it looked like before.

NSCAA Course Completion: LGBTQ+ Diversity & Inclusion

soccer

I was really happy to see the NSCAA show its progressive side with a course on inclusion and diversity. I’ve been a big fan of Athlete Ally, who helped create the course, for a long time. These two forces joining together is a very, very positive relationship for athletes in every sport, regardless of who they are.

December: A Busy One

projects, social media marketing

In my most busy month yet, I was able to create a slew of video posts for my collaborators. There are quite a few, so I will keep the descriptions short! Enjoy:

I just finished my first Q as a small business owner (H2H Social), and with the new year celebration, I wanted to highlight what I’ve been up to!

Things have started to rev up with the Morean Arts Center and the Chihuly Collection in St. Petersburg, Florida. Here is a demo from the Morean Center for Clay, and one from the Morean Glass Studio & Hot Shop!

Number 9 Salon was a lot of fun in December; between the glitter hair and champagne toast for New Year’s, I had a blast! Here are most of the video posts I created for them during December.

New to the H2H Social list of collaborators, Thank You Mama wanted to do a quick social media video to help with engagement after the holidays. Thank You Mama is a holistic, alternative medicine practice in St. Petersburg, Florida.

I was really excited to finish the coursework and exam for Social Marketing from one of the most respected pioneers in the social media industry, Hootsuite. It was the perfect way to ensure that I’ll hit the ground running in 2017!
