Duncan Rice @dunk_rice is a social media marketer and user of hashtagify.me. He recently got a new job and was kind enough to share the story of how he got it with us.
In December (so a little over 6 months ago) my wife and I adopted a
cat from Cats Protection, a UK cat re-homing charity. A few weeks later, she read a Facebook post from them asking for someone to help out with their new website and social media accounts, something I had been interesting in for a while. She showed me the post, we went along to the next homing show and … to cut a long story short, I am now running the @CrawleyReigate Twitter & Pinterest accounts and assisting on FB and the website in a voluntary capacity
One of the other volunteers on the website works in project management for an insurance company and when I decided to open a LinkedIn account, was one of my first connections. He works in the same building at an Internet Consulting firm and, you guessed it, showed the boss of this firm some of the work I’ve been doing.
Another LinkedIn connection followed, a friendly chat was arranged and before I knew it we were talking about social media, content management, web & app based tools etc.
Part of this discussion focused on the use of hashtags – how they could be used and where to find the right ones. We’d used some live testing of tools like OneQube and Tagboard, but Hashtagify was the only tool which enabled us to find related tags.
In the second interview we did another live test with Hashtagify, using the advanced mode to establish links between the most relevant tags. Your tool made a great impression and enabled me to identify a number of related tags which we could use to target specific industries, groups etc.
I’m now delighted to say that yesterday I was offered the position of Digital Marketing Executive with the added goal of increasing the companys social media presence!
Thank you for helping me make that good impression and I look forward to hearing more about the new hashtag timing feature – looks great!
Duncan, thank you for sharing this great story with us! And good luck with your new job!!
