Meet Digital Marketing Specialist, Carly Kamm!
Tell us about a typical day in the life of Carly Kamm.
I normally get to the office at about 8 am every day. I always check my emails as soon as I get into the office because there’s typically quite a few! Since I’m responsible for guest post outreach, I am constantly communicating back and forth with publishers and it’s important to keep my responses timely. Next, I usually check in our social media channels to see if there’s any content I should interact with or any posts we should share. I typically do this a few times throughout the day. Then I’ll move onto any blog writing or outreach tasks I have to complete that day. My tasks and schedule change a lot depending on the day which is something I enjoy.
What do you do in your role at Elevation?
I’m the Digital Marketing Specialist for Elevation’s new business team. My biggest task is increasing brand awareness for our company by finding guest post opportunities, creating blog content and regularly updating our social media channels. My overall goal is to keep a quality brand image for Elevation while also attracting new clients to the business.
What is one skill you wish you had?
I think Paid Social is very interesting and I would love to learn more about it. It’s a big part of digital marketing but I have very little experience with it. I find analytics fascinating and really enjoy learning the “why” behind processes.
What is your favorite part about your job?
I love that I’m constantly learning something new. I help write a lot of our blog content and it gives me a chance to further explore new areas of marketing such as influencer marketing, email marketing, etc. The research process I use before writing an article gives me a chance to really get an in-depth understanding of all of these concepts.
If you could switch jobs with one person at Elevation, who would it be?
I think I would switch jobs with our Office Coordinator, Andrea. She plans all of the fun activities we do in the office, like Zoom pictionary and pumpkin painting contests. She’s great at finding fun ways to encourage our team to connect with one another. I think her position would really allow you to be creative and think outside of the box which is something I would enjoy.
What is your favorite activity outside of work?
I really enjoy hiking. I went to school at Northern Arizona University so spending four years in Flagstaff made me love the outdoors since it’s so beautiful there. I’ve been on lots of hikes in both Sedona and Flagstaff and hope to go on more soon especially with the weather starting to cool down.
Favorite travel spot?
Last winter I visited Seattle for the first time and had a great experience. I was able to explore the city and take a ferry to Bainbridge Island which was a beautiful spot. I’m a big fan of gloomy weather and rainy days so that paired with the beautiful scenery made it a great trip! I hope to go back again soon and see more of the area.
