Our team at Circul8 has two new faces. Aren’t they lovely?
Say hello to Amanda Alegre (pictured left), our fantastic Content and Community Manager, and Laura Turner (pictured right), our sparkly Account Executive. Together this power duo could easily climb Mount Everest, all while effortlessly pumping out processes, optimising adverts and coordinating the Drake playlist.
Here’s what the girls had to say when we finally found some free time in their busy schedules:
1. How long have you been working in social, and what do you LOVE about it most?
Laura: 3 years. I love how close it has brought everyone online, and how transparent it makes companies.
Amanda: I’ve been working in social for over a year and the best thing about it is contributing to the big pool of great content, with great content of your own!
2. What’s an app that you can’t live without, and why?
Amanda: Instagram – because what kind of aesthetic-obsessed social (media) butterfly would I be if I didn’t?!
Laura: Snapchat. It’s my main form of communication and how I keep in touch with my family back in New Zealand. Even my 66-year-old Dad uses it!
3. What do you enjoy most about digital marketing?
Laura: How innovative it is, how fast it evolves, and the analytics and insights you have access to.
Amanda: That it’s constantly evolving and looking for ways to make conversations between advertisers and consumers more mutually beneficial. That’s something that traditional advertising was never really able to do as cost effectively as social/digital can.
4. What do you think the next big thing is in social media?
Amanda: Personalised emojis! Seriously, how is this not a thing yet?
Laura: A one stop shop where you can do everything… including going on a tropical holiday! Imagine!
5. Where are your top 3 travel destinations?
Laura: Anywhere that’s hot, sunny and sandy.
Amanda: Japan, The Whitsundays and the Greek Isles.
6. Where could we find you on a Saturday?
Amanda: On my couch on a full Netflix binge, doing the Bondi to Coogee walk or dancing to some old school hip hop and rnb.
Laura: Eating an acai bowl on Manly Beach.
