Project Title: Social Media Strategy
Project Description:We're looking for someone to take our social media to the next level by building engaging content and developing ad campaigns based on user insights (number of likes, views, engagement) to drive sales of our cards. With a focus on acquiring over 5,000 customers in October and increased engagement and views on our content. You don't need to be an expert in data analytics for this role, however any prior experience in marketing or social media will be advantageous.

At the end of the project we would like pithy report on 'what good looks like'- i.e a review of what kind of social posts have worked best and why including basic data analysis over the last few months. This will inform us going forward and ensure that we have an effective and efficient cross-channel social media strategy.

During this placement you will be responsible for developing our social media channels (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter) including:

  • Researching relevant and similar keywords and hashtags that do well in our area and within Nottingham
  • Creating and developing content based on data insights on highest levels of engagement
  • Scheduling cross-platform content
  • Sharing our blog posts across our social media platforms and also any relevant third parties
  • Developing relationships with existing and potential followers along with engaging with Instagram influencers to promote our content further
  • Providing uplift on social posts (i.e increased views, likes, comments over time)
  • Attending regular content meetings - where we'll discuss as a team and come up with great ideas for the weeks/months ahead
  • Provide key insights into what competitors are doing
  • Key project outcomes:

    - An evaluation of current social media success and challenges from the past 6 months
