Nicole has nearly 20 years under her belt, leading marketing teams, and delivering growth-focused marketing strategies to companies like the Financial Times, the Institute of Directors, the Association of Colleges, and more.
Fun fact: She’s a Twitter junkie – for its newsworthy, conversational nature, paired with exceptional organic reach/engagement. Also, she’s a big fan of the new bookmarking feature! Now for the editing option…
But for business, you can find her tapping into Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. LinkedIn holds a special place in her heart, simply because it is the only platform where people REGULARLY update their profiles, so… it’s a marketers data sweet spot – thanks, Microsoft!
But, the beauty of social media is that no matter what platform you are on, they all recognise that interests should come first, and have swapped their algorithms to reflect that. Particularly with Vero entering the marketplace. While its growth is impressive, it will be interesting to see how it stays afloat in a sponsor/ad-driven industry.
And the future? It is JUST as intriguing! But Nicole is a strong believer in the fact that children really house the future of the industry. How they interact with social media and how they use social platforms will determine what’s next or where the industry is headed. Additionally, our attention spans will have a part to play, and remain a major challenge we face in the industry!
Her favourite campaign: While she may not be a beer drinker… despite being German, her favourite social media campaign was Heineken’s ‘2017 Worlds Apart‘ campaign.
