Marketing & PR

Corporate Mobile Recycling

Nov 2012
  • Initially I began in a customer services role for mobile recycler Fonebank but after demonstrating enthusiasm for marketing and business development I moved to the sister company SmartFoneStore, an online mobile retailer, where I created the role of marketing manager. Because it is a small, young company I am lucky to have significant autonomy to manage the social media and contribute creatively to the direction of the company. The business development side has been very exciting and has involved creating and promoting new products, developing the mobile site and partnering with companies such as Naked wines and Lebara. I single handedly opened the Madrid office. Key achievements: • Creating blog content and press releases • Improving SEO results • Managing all social media • Starting a monthly newsletter (mailing list now up to 68,000) • Maintaining existing relationships with affiliates • Starting an email remarketing campaign • Using resources to contribute to charities
