Photolink: Week 5

Social Bookmarking

I was abit panicked when I heard this week my tasks revolved around social bookmarking! I have come across some social bookmarking sights myself such as Digg and StumbleUpon, never finding them the easiest things to grasp. I was then introduced to a few more; Delicious and Reddit. I was asked to login in and create some accounts for Photolink and start to populate them with pages from their clients webpages, mainly centred around Campo, Regis and Supercuts.

After working my way around each of the bookmarking sites, I found out how to add links and share all the interesting updates!

StumbleUpon I found to be my favourite, I like the layout and the fact it shares images with each post…

Digg I had used before to source interesting news articles, I found uploading data hard and was not so keen on the layout for adding your own links…

Image

Delicious I found the easiest to use, upload and share links however the layout is boring, I find the images with the articles eye catching and fun…

Image

Finally Reddit,Rsimilar to Delicious I found the layout boring however it is aimed for a more techy audience, I think it hits that perfectly however for new users it is hard to use and only lets you post every so often which made my job for the day difficult. Uhh Ohh you seem to be a new user….

After panicking at first, I loved learning about a new area and how to work with new sights. I also did my first tweet from @photolinkdigi  account, expressing how pleased everyone in the office was to be voted 7th in the Prolific North top 50 integrated agencies 2013!

Until next week,

Photolink: Week 4, Halloween

After having a week off for a placement day at university I was looking forward to getting back into the office. We got straight down to our daily tasks and we were then given 3 different training sessions for the end of the day, social media, blogging and SEO.

My daily task, the ‘social butterfly’ meant that my work for the day was centred around all of their social media pages, making posts and interacting with other users. Starting with the Regis Google+

I decided to use Halloween as a theme to my posts, updates and uploads! I found updating both Regis’s and Supercut’s Pinterest the most fun, searching for unique hair ideas for the spooky festivities.

Our training sessions towards the end of the day were extremely interesting, we were taught more into SEO and how to link build, using different programmes and analysing techniques. We then had social media training which was particularly helpful for me and my daily task, again we were given tools and techniques to use such as Feedly, to keep updated on particular industry news. Finally our blogging tutorial was extremely interesting finding out how the company find and contact bloggers to work with them on certain campaigns.

Looking forward to keeping you posted!
