Social Media

I offer a range of social media services at all levels, whether it’s helping companies and brands develop an online presence or creating compelling content that gets shared. I help small businesses, artists, independent contractors, and others brand themselves to stand out in their fields.

My account is not just an RSS feed for my own work. I use Twitter to interact with other writers and potential sources, and to get feedback or thoughts from followers. I’m especially interested in tweeting about:

  • Local Portland news and events
  • New music releases
  • Roller derby
  • Freelance writers and writing
  • Pop culture

I began managing the social media accounts of the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (@AAMAinfo) in April 2014. Since then:

  • AAMA’s number of Twitter followers has more than doubled
  • The account’s number of interactions has increased significantly
  • I seek out and reward our member companies who are active on social media and encourage those who aren’t to become involved

AAMA on Instagram

Screen Shot 2015-03-14 at 4.30.58 PMI started AAMA’s Instagram account in October 2014. With staff assistance, I use the account to:

  • Document off-site trade shows and conferences
  • Show in-office “slices of life,” like celebrations
  • Other creative and fun photo-worthy opportunities

This account shows the fun side of AAMA, and includes a regular feature called #MeetUsMonday. This segment introduces followers to a new AAMA staff member every Monday.
