Meet The Giraffe Team: Jamie Best
We are a friendly bunch here at Giraffe Social Media and are proud of our staff. We believe that our individualities are integral to the value of our company, and we’d love for you to meet some of us! Up today: Jamie Best, Social Media Manager.
Who are you and what you do at Giraffe?
My name is Jamie Best and I am a Social Media Manager here at Giraffe. I am in charge of running Social Media for a wide variety of clients, all with different tones and goals.
How long have you been at Giraffe?
I began part-time 9 months ago and moved full time in May this year.
What do you like most about working here?
Getting insights into so many different industries has allowed me to broaden my knowledge. You also get to become a part of so many different companies and do your bit in collaborating with marketing strategies.
Has anything happened recently that you’re particularly proud of?
One of my clients Bar Italia Uxbridge received great engagement from content due to campaigns I had been running over the summer. Also, I have effectively carried out effective market research for Designer Fighter, providers of custom martial art gear, which successfully gained insight into what products they should launch next year.
If you could give one tip to anybody looking to boost their Social Media presence, what would it be?
Treat being a Social Media Manager like being a good boyfriend - always listen!
What would you be doing if you weren’t a Social Media Manager?
I’d like to think I’d be a premier league footballer, but in reality, I’d probably just be the kit man.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
Control metal - it could be really deadly and also really handy around the house. That guy from the X-men does not utilise his powers well, that’s all I’m saying. Imagine it - you could do your ironing while having a shower.
If you could meet anybody, living or dead, who would it be?
Michael Jackson - we could go on a few rides at Neverland, chill out with his pet monkey, maybe he could even teach me a few dance moves. Boy, I could do with teaching a few dance moves.
What’s the theme song to your life and why?
AC/DC - Shoot to Thrill. Because it’s high octane, holds loads of good memories for me and is an epic song to enter a room to. And it’s used in Iron Man 2 - I love Marvel films.
Finally, how do you like your eggs in the morning?
Leave the eggs - give me extra bacon.
