Since I first starting working full-time in marketing just short of 10 years ago (gulp!) I’ve had campaigns and ideas that I thought would be amazing which have totally crashed… but also some others that have been far more successful than I could have ever thought, generating lots of enquiries and sales.
Six months have now passed since I joined the Superfly Marketing team, in this space of time I’ve already learnt so much that I could never imagine myself doing. Being able to design has always been my strong point however the development side of websites was an area I was lacking in experience. With the help of the Superfly team I have learnt the basics of coding such as HTML, CSS and PHP. I have produced a lot of websites for many different clients already such as building contractors, travel agencies, financial planning and much more!

Since beginning working at Superfly I’ve really learnt the ins and outs of social media and the benefits it can have on a business. From what I’ve already experienced, there’s so much more to social media than people really think.
I can’t believe it’s May, which means I’ve been working at Superfly a month already! Before applying for the role at Superfly, I had the worry and stress of finding a full time job before leaving University in my chosen career. From studying a Fashion Communication and Promotion degree, this has given me key skills and knowledge that can be applied within many fields and not just fashion. This benefited me a lot as I found that I could use my abilities across different industries such as digital marketing, PR, graphic design and writing.
When working on objectively trying to improve a company’s marketing activities, I personally think it’s really beneficial to identify which competitors are absolutely nailing their marketing and branding. It’s no surprise that often the more successful businesses in each sector are great at their marketing, partly because of budget but mainly because of their positive and open minded attitudes towards the importance of marketing.
As a designer, no matter how long you’ve been in the industry you’re constantly learning new things. As trends change and software develops, you find yourself coming across new techniques and things you’re stronger at than others. These things are not necessarily a weakness but there’s always some things that you could improve on – mine is fonts.
So two weeks have passed already…wow!
When I received a phone call telling me I got the trainee website designer job I was overwhelmed with shock and excitement. After leaving college in July I was struggling to find a design job straight away so I repeatedly wrote to and even visited company’s with my CV to apply that way.
