Friends of the Internet,
My name is Will Todd and I am excited to be a summer intern for Creative New World!
Hold your applause, please.
I was raised in Beaumont, TX in a family of five. I really enjoy photography, music, soccecr, ultimate Frisbee, computer gaming, and making people laugh.
I began my collegiate career by attending Texas A&M University in the fall of 2007 with a business degree in Management of Information Systems. This degree gave me insight on the info system background that makes businesses run in this modern technology-demanding world that we live in. The degree also gave me the realization that I did not want to directly pursue this field as a career. Thus, I sought for more business knowledge.
I ended up applying for a Marketing graduate program at Texas A&M University. Thankfully, I was accepted into the program and began the graduate degree in August 2011. Apparently, I can never leave my Aggie roots. Do not hold it against me!
Currently, I am living in Austin for the summer. I moved here in mid-May and feel slightly overwhelmed by the size of this place. It will take some getting used to! I won’t call myself an Austinite yet, but only time will tell! What is interesting is that I am working satellite, conversing with my team leaders and co-workers via telephone and, of course, telepathy.
I will be working with the company in its marketing capacities. My efforts will be geared towards online marketing for Creative New World and outreach to the online communities. I will be furthering my knowledge of online marketing techniques such as SEO (Search Engine Optimization), SEM (Search Engine Marketing), link building, SMM (Social Media Marketing) by partnering with some of Creative New World’s marketing masterminds.
Hopefully my work during this summer will prove to be valuable to the company. Making an impact is my top priority, as well as becoming more educated in the marketing realm. Although Creative New World is only months old, I can tell these guys are passionate about what they do. The company exists to find ways of enhancing others’ business efforts and to be an outlet for creativity and passion.
So why am I writing a blog for Creative New World?
Well, this blog will contain my learnings and increased insight from my summer marketing internship with the company. I will be passing on information that I deem to be valuable in hopes that it will be beneficial to any visitors of this website! I hope that whoever is reading this blog will walk away with some good information that can be applied wherever it can.
