2018 was a great year – full of growth, opportunities, and experiences I’ll be forever grateful for. Before I make a pretty exciting announcement regarding 2019 and the future of H2H Social (and me), let’s round out this great year with some of the final [branded content] touches from Q4.
Okay, so, the goal at the start of 2018 was to post more often with less content. Aaaaaand, it’s April already. To bring these “Jolley Goods” up to speed, I’ve sifted through the first quarter of content and snagged some favorites.
Here’ what I’ve been up to so far in 2018:
An added bonus to MADE this month is that their long-awaited website is live and beautiful! I was stoked to contribute my imagery to the project, and you can see it throughout (click away)! Here are some screenshots- just click on either of them to visit the new MADE Coffee website!
Audrey Lane Collection
I have also been creating blog content for the Audrey Lane Journal. Here are some of my favorite posts as of late. Just click on one of the images to read that particular blog!
Another bi-monthly update is here, and I’ve got to be honest. The number of pieces of content is starting to get too big to share it all. That’s a good thing, though. So, this is the last post I’ll do that features pretty much every piece of content I create over the course of two months. Next time (September/October wrap) I’ll be sharing my favorite pieces of content
So, this is the last post I’ll do that features pretty much every piece of content I create over the course of two months. Next time (September/October wrap) I’ll be sharing select pieces of content, whether it’s because of the success of it or because I just love it that much 🙂
Without any more delays, here’s the wrap for July and August, 2017.
I’ve been working with MADE Coffee for a little over five weeks now. Our goal is to collaborate to create a consistent, community-minded, organic following through authentic Instagram imaging.
Undoubtedly, the MADE can is the focus of their Instagram. But, staying in line with H2H Social’s vision, we wanted to humanize the brand. We started a “Meet ‘Em Monday” post where we feature a local vendor who carries the MADE brand.
And, here’s a fun, little animation to close out our first month of work together!
Creative Mornings St. Pete
Honestly, I can’t say how thankful I am to have met this amazing team of people. Being around like-minded, kind-hearted humans is something I’ve been missing in my every day, and these guys fill it in every way I could imagine! Oh, and here are the photos from July/August! 🙂
Number 9 Salon
As we enter our second year of business together, I am super excited for what the future holds at Number 9 Salon. These two months were filled with fresh ideas and great styling content. Stay tuned for more before the end of 2017!
Pinellas County United SC
I also started working with the soccer club I coach at, Pinellas County United SC. In addition to some brainstorming sessions, I am helping with social media marketing and website management. Here are some pieces of content, including blogs (at the bottom – click the image to read the post).
Through H2H Social I was contacted to create a minute-long video for Salon Norrell Aveda. They wanted to showcase their fun, dream job atmosphere. With all of my footage, I couldn’t help but make a second clip for them (“Primpin’ aint easy”). Check it out!
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.
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.
Today, we’re going to get a little vulnerable. Like one of my favorite authors preaches, vulnerability is not weakness, but rather “the core, the center, of meaningful human experiences.”
First off, there’s a statistic that claims the fear of public speaking is number one, even above death, for most people. I am one of those people. When I was offered the opportunity to give a lecture on social media at The Morean Arts Center, it was bittersweet. I was nervous, but I also had to say, “yes, absolutely.” I knew when I branched out on my own that public speaking would be part of the deal. So, here we are.
To make a long story short, I gave a “Social Media for Artists” talk at the MAC on September 29th. I presented an hour-long, interactive session, and then we had a great Q&A after that.
Now that I’ve scaled the first hurdle in this race, I can truthfully attest to the fact that facing fears is absolutely terrifying. However, it is important to remember that the weight of the reward is much more vast than that of the fear itself.
Being a soccer coach is such a huge part of my life; not in the sense of time, but in the sense of fulfillment. I’ve realized that to live a full life, I must be involved with this game that I love so much.
I was really honored to have The18 reach out for an interview, so I could be published as a ‘Featured Coach.’ I have been a reader of The18 for quite some time, and really enjoy their stories and content. So, when they reached out, I couldn’t have been more excited.
Anywho, HI! Today I’m sharing some of my work from August on the blog; from hair how-to’s and product promos, to a stormy michelada recipe (because, Florida). To see what else I’m working on, connect with me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram: @iAmRachelJolley
