You’ve probably heard us say that people aren’t Socium’s most important asset; the right people are Socium’s most important asset. That’s why we started our Socium Spotlight series, where we shine a light on the diverse and unique personalities that make up the Socium team.
For this month’s Socium Spotlight, we’re excited to feature our Associate Director of Paid Search, Frances Skakel!
What made you choose this career path?
I always wanted a career that involved creativity & experimentation which is why I was initially drawn to digital marketing. Platform best practices are constantly evolving, which creates endless opportunities for problem-solving & thinking on your toes (I still have all 10).
What’s your favorite job perk that Socium offers?
Free lunch! Anytime we’re in office we can expense up to $18 toward the cuisine of our choosing. My go-to meal? Sweetgreen. My latest regret? Sushi from an establishment not to be named here.
What did you do before coming to Socium?
I worked at another digital marketing agency for about 2.5 years prior to joining Socium. Before that, I worked at a shoe & handbag company based in NYC.
What piece of advice would you offer fellow digital marketers?
Less is more! Quality goes a lot further than quantity.
How do you like your coffee or tea?
Reheated in the microwave a few times throughout the day because I forget about it.
Thank you, Frances, for working with us on this month’s Socium Spotlight!
