I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the readers of this blog. My name is Danelle Porter and I am an intern for Department Zero (as you might have guessed!). I was born in Orange, CA but I grew up in Springfield, MO. I went to college at Missouri State University where I completed a degree in Psychology and a second degree in Communications (and a minor in film photography).
I moved to Kansas City a little over a month ago to take this internship and to take my life in a new direction. It was scary but necessary. I am very interested in the marketing and advertising world. I knew I needed to move to a larger market somewhere close to immerse myself in it.
I am in love with the idea of experiential marketing. In a world so inundated with social media, digital advertising and the idea of a global community, I feel it is paramount that a brand connects with its customers face to face. The additions of these media outlets are important but nothing sticks in a person’s mind better than something tangible and interactive.
My strengths are listening, organization, leadership, and giving presentations. I have knowledge and experience creating social media strategy plans. I am currently learning the ins and outs of creating scopes and estimates for campaigns. I am soaking in as much of anything else that I can get my hands on.
