My name’s Eddie and I just recently became the new Social Media & Digital Community Manager at a professional body for solicitors called The Law Society. I’m based in London and I love chatting about new content ideas, as well as the ‘why’ behind all those ideas! I’m also really keen to hear from you all about how, as social media managers, we can work smarter and free up more time to do the parts of the job we love!
Hello Everyone! My name is Ashley and I work as the Social Media Coordinator & Content Coordinator for my company, Wrk, an automation solution provider. I am responsible for creating all of our organic social media content, publishing it, and overall managing our channels and launching new ones! I am located in Ottawa in Canada.
I love to chat about all things content, professional development, and books as I read a lot! I hope to make more connections in the space so we can share knowledge and learn from each other. A big goal of mine for the next year is to build and establish my own personal brand a bit more and write more for pleasure!
Hello, my name is Alissa Paolella. I’ve been a social media manager since 2014 and am currently the senior content editor and copywriter/storyteller for a digital marketing agency in central Ohio. I support marketing efforts, including social media, for the agency and clients. I also run a freelance digital marketing business. Connect with me on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/alissa-paolella/.
I love talking about justice, inclusion, mental health, and my cat, Midge.
I’m Roger Burnett, rajabee to many, soGOODRaja by day, leading the charge to keep our clients branded merch/swag/promotional products (whatever title you assign to the stuff bearing your company logo) OUT of landfills.
I founded Social Good Promotions in 2019 with a strong dose of inspiration that came from my role as co-founder of PromoCares back in 2018. PromoCares is a branded-merch industry initiative dedicated to elevating the perception of our marketing medium in comparison to other advertising spend, and we’ve been championing the efforts of those in our marketplace focused on an objective beyond profit ever since. It was in those go-go early years of PromoCares that I realized how little and at the same time how much our marketing medium can provide in terms of value, when done well, when done in conjunction with other forms of marketing, when it’s not an “oh crap, we need some merch, somebody buy something” kind of reactionary purchase.
We’ve pulled off some amazing things in the 5 years since we started PromoCares, and it was in the sessions with my co-collaborators that I planted the seeds that became soGOOD Promo in 2019. While my clothes and my family are found just north of Ann Arbor, MI, we travel the US in our converted Sprinter van for weeks at a time, traveling the country connecting with others seeking ways to use their businesses to make the world a better place, documenting it all and sharing the highlights on our numerous social media channels dedicated to those efforts. (PS - I manage all those channels along with my day job as our primary salesperson for the company, no small feat for a non-digital native!)
I love talking about big ideas, exploring ways to tell the stories of others who share my love for focusing our business efforts on something greater than profit, and beer. (ok, bourbon too) I can’t wait to connect with as many of you as would be interested in doing so, as while I have much to share, I have even more to learn from all of you.
