Work Experience

I've had the privilege of working with some amazing organizations where I was able to acquire and exercise different skills. I learned how to build a website from scratch. I learned how to write winning proposals and RFPs. I worked closely with SEO, UI/UX teams, and project managers to pull off a successful web, app, development project.  I also worked closely with C-suite executives to determine the direction of online marketing & the steps we needed to reach there.

SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER & COPYWRITER
2015 - 2016

Spectrum Y&R is one of the oldest advertising agencies of Pakistan associated with the global Y&R agency. I was privileged to work in dual roles with the agency - as a social media manager and as a copywriter. I indulged in writing copy for non-profit organizations, created pitches for high-profile clients and managing the digital accounts of existing clients. 

During my short time here, I was handling the digital profile of multi-national and local brand clients including the Special Olympics (Pakistan). I led SOP's digital strategy to success through organic social media activities. Within three months, we were able to increase likes, shares and enrollment of new participants for the final games. 

Spectrum introduced me to the world of advertising and here too, I played the dual role of a social media specialist and a copywriter; working both in the traditional and digital mediums of advertising.

I was hired as an Assistant Brand Manager and was later promoted to Associate Brand Manager. I was part of the Design & Development department, where I was responsible for managing the company's online design and development brands. The job taught me everything I know today of digital marketing.

Cubix is one of the most popular tech companies that focused on app and mobile game development. Back in 2012, it was an exciting time to be working with these guys because the mobile app industry had just taken off.

 

As the Business Analyst and Content Manager, I was responsible for content strategy & management as well as writing proposals, the technical scope of work documents and training new writers. I loved the multi-purpose role and learned a lot about the mobile app development industry.

It was here that I was introduced to the world of mobile apps and games. With the knowledge and industry exposure that I gained, I was able to create mobile app strategies for B2B & B2C businesses.
