About me

 

I currently hold the position as Marketing Manager at Snupps, a social media app based in London. I have been in the position for a year and was originally bought onboard to develop the women’s fashion and beauty segment, an area which has grown exponentially since my arrival. In addition to this to my main focus has been on the development and implementation of strategic marketing initiatives and user acquisition. I manage partner and key user relations, as well as plan, implement and track various B2C marketing campaigns. I am also in charge of our email marketing campaign and day to day social media management. I begun working at Snupps in January 2015 as a Marketing Associate, and was quickly promoted to Marketing Manager in May 2015, to lead a team of 3 others. Previously I completed a MA in Strategic Fashion Marketing from London College of Fashion, with a distinction. I have also completed internships with London based fashion house Mathew Williamson in Digital marketing, and German based fashion brand Hugo Boss, for which I interned for a year in Product Management ‘Boss Black’ in Switzerland. My time working, has taught me a lot about consumer demands, and the importance of a well structured branding & marketing strategy. I am energetic and goal orientated with a strong work ethic. I pride myself in being able to think on my feet and overcome problems when they arise. This combined with my relevant and up to date knowledge of digital marketing initiatives makes me well qualified for the role you are looking to fill.
