We are excited to welcome our new Director of Special Projects, Trisha Hagadorn, to the TwoSix Team! Read on to learn more about her!

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

Trisha: Great to be here! Well, I’m originally from the Livingston County area. Being from a small town, you tend to get a bit stir crazy. So, after I got my Associates Degree from Lansing Community College, I left my family and moved to Minneapolis, MN.

Then I was onto the south. I packed the cats up, again(yes I’m a cat mom & proud of it!), and relocated down to Atlanta, GA. Let me describe that city in one word –TRAFFIC! Seriously, add an hour to wherever you’re doing. Regardless, I loved every second of living down there; the atmosphere, southern hospitality, food etc.

After a little over two years, I got homesick and moved home. I then graduated college with my Bachelors degree double majoring in Marketing and Sports & Event Management (big college football fan — GO GREEN).

On top of that, I’m also a Certified Personal Trainer and spend my free time training my community as well as lifting [very] heavy things up, just to set them back down.

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

Trisha: I know, I’m typical but I absolutely love Instagram. It’s a great resource to stay up to late with the latest fitness and fashion trends but also to keep up with family and friends (and your favorite celebs).

It’s hard to choose between LinkedIn and Twitter for professional use. Depending on your audience and message. LinkedIn messages should be based around business professionals and trends. While Twitter is a quick and efficient way to get a message out while also easily engaging with your follower base.

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

Trisha: Easily the Rocky Mountains. However where exactly in the Rocky’s I was, is still a mystery. On my first trip out to Colorado, I wanted nothing more than to see snow (yes I’m that person). So we all packed in a car and started driving up into the mountains.

After about 6 hours of driving up and down windy roads we ended up in this valley that was covered in a fresh coat of snow. Just nothing but snow covered trees as far as you could see. The most gorgeous, peaceful (and liked photo on my Instagram account) place I have ever traveled to.

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

Trisha: Keep it clear and simple! We live in a world where you hear hundreds of ‘voices’ (via print/digital media, ads, social posts, etc.) per day.  A lengthy social media post, webpage, blog etc. can lead to readers from getting distracted or bored. Make sure to create clear, concise, and simple messages that engage and maintain readers.
