Howdy! My name is Kelcey and I am the new SEO marketing intern here at RankHammer. I am so excited to dive into the sea of search engine marketing. This is my second internship in the online marketing field and my first time as an SEO marketing intern. I can’t wait to hone my web marketing skills with this awesome team.
Just so you know, I am not your typical Southern Belle. I absolutely detest the color pink and I don’t own anything with rhinestones. I do not own a small fluffy dog that could fit in my purse (heck, I rarely even carry a purse). I will NEVER own a Taylor Swift album and my hair is not as high as heaven. On the contrary, I like big trucks and getting my hands dirty. I like camping in the woods and all things Star Wars. I’m also a big kid at heart. I love thunderstorms and splashing in the puddles when it rains. I have a loveable mutt named Carly who is my best friend. I wish on shooting stars and dream of going to Disney World (I’ve already been three times). I’m just your average Jane.
Currently, I am a senior at Baylor University pursuing a BBA in Marketing and French. To be completely honest, I never wanted to major in business. I wanted to be an English major and spend my days writing young adult fiction about hunky boys and summer romances that would make impressionable tween girls swoon (sigh); but thankfully, my father slapped some sense into me and encouraged me to try my hand at a business degree. I’m so glad he did because marketing is something I have become truly passionate about. Last summer I interned at an online advertising and PR agency and learned what an integral part the internet plays in creating brand awareness and converting prospects into customers. I speak French and was fortunate enough to study and live in France for four months last year. While in France I learned a lot about brand awareness, consumer behavior, and the scientific method behind each that creates a customer. It was there, in the heart of Paris, that I developed a deeper passion for marketing in all its forms.
This summer I hope to jump the gap from SEO marketing intern apprentice to SEO Jedi warrior, but I still have a lot to learn. Unfortunately, since digital marketing is still a relatively new frontier, universities don’t teach much about how to become successful at it. I will be learning and experiencing all of this as I go; which will be really fun and also terrifying at the same time, as I am sure to make a few mistakes along the way. I hope to learn about search engines the way one would learn about a close friend. I want to find out what makes them tick, what they like, what confuses them, and what makes sense to them; so that through these search engines I can help our clients grow and prosper.
I’m really excited to be an SEO marketing intern on the RankHammer team and to share with all of you my experiences as I navigate this vast and crazy world we call the Internet. Feel free to connect with me on Twitter or at my cooking blog.
