Answer: I’ve been in digital marketing for over 10 years working with both marketing and advertising agencies. My strengths are my attention to detail, organization, and ability to think strategically about how to approach a campaign. My weaknesses include working in an environment where there is minimal supervision and long hours are typical during crunch times. I enjoy using social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram because they provide the opportunity for people’s stories to be heard or seen by others who might not otherwise hear from them. There’s a sense of community and support that people often get from connecting with others on Instagram. At the same time, there’s a certain kind of sad sentimentality to Instagram that comes from being in the digital age with everything we’ve lost in terms of interaction and touch. The idea that we live in an age where stories have to be seen or told through social media is something that can feel quite lonely.

How do you measure ROI for a campaign?
Calculating Simple ROI
You take the sales growth from that business or product line, subtract the marketing costs, and then divide by the marketing cost.
(Sales Growth – Marketing Cost) / Marketing Cost = ROI1
So, if sales grew by $1,000 and the marketing campaign cost $100, then the simple ROI is 900%.
(($1000-$100) / $100) = 900%.
That’s a pretty amazing ROI, but it was picked more for round numbers than for realism.
