Social Ape is extremely excited to announce that we've hired Maghen Grice as Social Media Specialist! Maghen is originally from Alabama and has a solid passion for social media. She attended The University of Alabama to earn a degree in Public Relations and is thrilled to now be living in Charlotte and working with local clients at Social Ape.
We asked Maghen a few questions so that you can get to know her:
How long have you lived here in Charlotte? What are your 3 favorite things about the city so far? - I've lived in Charlotte for 9 months now! My favorte things are: the craft beer scene, great food, & the variety of things to do outdoors.
Tell us about your past work experience in Social Media. - After taking a social media class at The University of Alabama, I became more interested in the marketing aspect of social media, and then as marketing intern for Chirrpy (an event-ticketing company out of Nashville), I grew to love social media even more and knew I wanted to do more of it professionally.
Why are you so passionate about social media? - I can connect with friends all over the world, anytime I want! Also, I love being able to learn about Charlotte (or any new city's) beer & food scene through social media. It helps to satisfy my need-to-travel personality!
What will you be bringing to the Social Ape team? - Creativity, new ideas, and my unquenchable thirst for learning more!
What are your responsibilities at Social Ape? - I create the weekly newsletter, the Social Ape Weekly, as well as write blog posts, post to the Social Ape social media accounts, and handle accounts for 2 Social Ape clients.
If you could give one piece of advice to businesses on social media marketing, what would it be? - When customers give words of praise or complain on social media networks, always listen and reply.
