4th Week of Co-op: What A Ride!

It’s been quite a ride! This is the end of week four of my work placement at Remix, and it’s been another great week. Thank you so much for following my Remix journey from the start till now. I must say I have benefitted a lot from being here, and I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything.

This week was a bit slower, however I did accomplish a lot. I got to learn about lead generation as a part of the on-going training process. Learning how to gain new clients and adding a personal touch to the outreach process is something that I am glad to have learned under the umbrella of Remix, as a lot of what I’ll be doing independently for my music will involve a lot of emails and outreach. I am truly fascinated by the systematic approach to which things are done and sequenced here, by Amanda’s small, but super-efficient team, that I have had the privilege of being a part of for the last four weeks.

Also as a part of my learning, I did a number of trainings this week honing in on social strategy and adapting to the current online ecosystem. A lot is evolving in the consumer experience, and attention is getting harder and harder to acquire (and sustain) in 2019. With this in mind, I’m glad that as a part of my internship, I get access to the present day statistics to truly understand what works and what doesn’t anymore in the digital world. Being a digital marketer is a superpower, I must say. I learned the importance of being more human and sounding less robotic in messaging across all platforms, as people connect more to the intricacies of the human experience than they would to carefully crafted, overly-produced pieces of marketing material. I’ve found this to be true even in my time here, as what I’ve found most attractive about Remix is the non-robotic work culture here, the little jokes and casual conversations shared in between team meetings as we check off our daily tasks.

Other than that, everything else has gone on pretty well. Managing social media has become relatively easy for me, and that’s not something that I take for granted at all. Even though I still have a lot to learn, I must say the platforms are not as intimidating as they once were.

Fun facts

If you’ve been following weekly, you must know by now it’s been my style to talk about Mandi’s treats. This week, she made us some homemade brown bread. I honestly wish she had brought this particular treat in at the end of the day, because on this day I was too hungry to wait for an appropriate spread (haha). But it was lovely! Many thanks to you, Amanda.
