Designing Content for Virality, Engagements & Impact
As a copywriter and social media manager, I led social media marketing campaigns for many brands — often from scratch — at Jack In the Box Worldwide (2011-12). This growth chart is based on actual Facebook data from some of my happy clients.
My speaker deck, “How to write perfect sentences for Facebook (Twitter, Linkedin, websites, headlines, brochures, etc),” has trended on SlideShare with 50K+ views; it contains original samples of my Facebook posts, writing and design.
In February 2017, I helped a leading digital publishing startup in India to fine-tune their approach to content marketing. These are actual performance data for Feb 1-23 (23 days) compared to previous month Jan 1-31 (31 days) while I led the in-house digital marketing team as a content marketer.
