Newest addition to the TF Family!


My name is Dana and I am the newest addition to TalkingFinger! I first met these guys during the summer when I interned with them, and I am glad to be back!

I recently graduated from Southern New Hampshire University in December, a semester earlier than planned. I majored in marketing and minored in both social media marketing and fashion merchandising. My roommate and I were actually the first two day undergraduate students to graduate with a minor in social media marketing because the program was introduced just last spring.

First two undergraduate day students to get a minor in social media marketing!

I love that social media is so versatile and can be used by anyone. All over now, companies are directing people towards their Facebook or Twitter instead of their website. QR codes are popping up everywhere; even containers of strawberries and grapes now have them printed directly on them. Applications on smartphones also make it easy to access all social media outlets practically anywhere. 

After taking note of all of this, I knew it would be a good idea to look into the social media aspect of marketing. I feel that if a company does not look into social media, they will be left in the dust behind their competition. It is also a great way to connect with others and allows you to meet people you never would have had the opportunity to meet with otherwise. 

I am excited to be back and to learn all I can about social media from Bill and Erik. They are some of the best social media marketers out there and I am happy to be working along side them.
