26: Welcome to the team, Makenna! We are excited to have you on board. Tell us a little bit about yourself!

Makenna: Hi! My name is Makenna and I have lived and worked in Howell, MI for the majority of my life. Some fun facts about me are; I have a mini Bernedoodle puppy named Kakashi, I am very into fitness and lifting, I’m a sucker for karaoke nights with friends, and I love taking up new hobbies, my current fixation is learning how to golf.

26: What past experience do you have in digital marketing? 

Makenna: My digital marketing journey began while I was managing a cafe in downtown Howell. To increase sales, I prioritized consistently creating content for our social channels and website. Eventually, falling in love with the marketing part of my job and getting picked up by a small agency in my town. I worked at the agency for over a year as a full-time social media manager and content creator before I found TwoSix Digital! 

26: What is your favorite social media channel for personal use and for professional use?

Makenna: As a typical Gen Zer, my favorite social media channel for personal use is TikTok, I know… shocking, right? As much as I do love the hilarious trending audios, I truly believe that TikTok completely changed the game for short-form video content on every social media platform. My favorite social channel for professional use is Facebook because of the vastly different audiences you can reach and range of creative content you can post.

26: TwoSix Digital works exclusively in the travel, tourism, and hospitality industry. What is the most magnificent place you have ever visited?

Makenna: The most magnificent place that I have ever traveled to is the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. My family stayed in a cabin in the mountains and the views were absolutely beautiful. 

26: What is the best piece of digital marketing/advertising advice you’ve ever received?

Makenna: The best piece of digital marketing advice I have ever received is to always view your content with the eyes of your intended audience before posting. Doing so can create a closer relationship with your audience since you are now “speaking the same language as them”.
