Our social media team, Shannon, Julie, and Amanda, recently went to California for a trip filled with education, strategy, and team bonding.

On the first day of their trip, the team headed to Oakland for a social media conference. The conference was filled with a variety of topics including Google Ads, Search Optimization, and Keywords. Additionally, our social media team received advanced training in Facebook and LinkedIn advertising to continue their growth and knowledge about the new changes in the industry. After the conference, our social media team began to strategize new approaches and ideas for our clients.

Our Social Media Team: Julie, Amanda, and Shannon

The rest of the week, our team began to construct new social media approaches for our clients. In fact, they were so excited about the new processes that they have already begun implementation.

Social Media Specialist, Amanda, even captured new headshots for Shannon and Julie, so be sure to visit their Creating Your Space team member profiles here.

With that being said, our social team did take time away from their screens to regroup and bond as a team. While social media is an incredibly useful asset to any business, it is important for our team to take a moment away from their computers and recharge before they return to becoming even more creative.

Our social media team had an absolute blast getting to know one another and bonding. They are incredibly excited to share, implement, strategize, and form their new ideas. Be sure to stay tuned and ask about our upcoming social media plans.
