Molly Symonds-Hall, Digital Marketing Executive

Hello everyone!

I can’t believe it’s been a couple of weeks already since I joined Green Ginger Digital. I can’t wait to see what the future brings and all the tricks of the trade from Emily, Nick, and Marcus – and I’m super excited to get stuck in and be a part of an actual Digital Marketing agency! This has been a goal of mine for quite some time and I’m pretty proud of myself for getting my foot in the door in the Digital Marketing field.

My background is in Graphic Design and my previous jobs didn’t utilize my skills and I found myself stagnating within my career, so I applied for GGD on a whim (as I honestly didn’t expect anything from it) and here I am! I’ve learned so much already and I know I’m in great hands with Emily and Nick.

Without further ado, here are 10 things I have learned since starting at Green Ginger Digital.

1.    I am going to be working with some great clients. From small to large businesses and in many different fields. No two days have been the same and I’m so excited to get stuck in! From confectionary to motorbikes, you really can’t get more of a mixed bag!

2.    I like to challenge myself – in past jobs; I have often found myself hiding within my comfort zone and the past couple of weeks have forced me out of that habit and it’s not as bad as I thought! I’m actually enjoying learning on the job (even if it is a bit scary) and looking forward to this, even more, when we are back working in an office.

3.    I really do not like remote working but I’m making the most out of it while I can. I’m spending the time that I would take to commute to an office by preparing myself for the day by writing out to-do lists and catching up on life-admin and I’m grateful for the extra time I have. Also making time for a nice breakfast and a good coffee can set you up for a great day too.

4.    That GGD has great integrity, and I am proud to be a part of that. The honesty and transparency when it comes down to working with clients and the value of the relationships with each and every client are very high up on the agenda and I cannot tell you how refreshing to work in an environment like this is.

5.    I would be lying if I did not say that I’ve learned so much about Digital Marketing in the past couple of weeks! I was kindly gifted ‘This is Marketing’ by Seth Godin and I have been really enjoying reading that whilst working alongside everyone at GGD. It has been a great experience to be involved in some of the smaller tasks right from the beginning of my career, I’m happy that Emily and Nick trust me.

6.    My new colleagues are all great! We are a very small team and I have so much to learn from each of them. Emily and Nick have done such an outstanding job with building GGD in only the past 12 months, I have no idea how they found the time to do it all! I’m looking forward to going for a beer on a Friday with them when lockdown is over.

7.    Not to sweat the small stuff – working from home in a new job in a new field with new colleagues and new clients can be a little stressful but if there is one thing that lockdown has taught me; it is to not sweat the small stuff. It really doesn’t matter that I’m dying for a haircut (because so is everyone else), what does matter is making the most out of a slightly awkward situation. Keeping communication open with group chat messages and video calls has kept me in the loop so I can provide the best work I can for now. (But I seriously can’t wait to be in a fancy office and bring a desk plant in).

8.    Healthy working relationships are crucial to productivity. It doesn’t matter what office you’re working in – if you don’t get along as a team, things aren’t going to work. The past year has been hard for everyone and I’m amazed at how much support I’ve received off of each colleague as this admittedly is my first job in the Digital Marketing sector. It has been great working with a team that shows so much patience and trust with tasking new work to me.

9.    That I have gained extra confidence already! Just in my first week, I had met several new people (albeit via Zoom) and even took over the GGD Instagram account for a day. As soon as we are not working remotely anymore, I think you will see a lot more of me on the GGD social media. I am excited to get more involved and start networking!

10.  That despite being the newbie and definitely a novice, my thoughts and opinions are valued and not dismissed. It is a great feeling to be respected and appreciated for what I can bring to the table. Sometimes a fresh pair of eyes can really make a difference.

I’m sure that there will be many more things that I will learn in the near future. If you want to hear more from me, check out my LinkedIn and send me a connection!

Pitchy were one of Green Ginger Digitals first clients and we were really impressed with how they took onboard what we wanted to achieve and put together an impressive plan of how they could help us get there. Results were impressive and the team were always professional and approachable.

Green Ginger Digital came to us with a clear brief and set of requirements. Their communication and ability to make key decisions quickly and effectively made the design and build of their website an easy process. Clearly knowledgable in their field, I'd recommend them for any digital advertising type campaign and certainly hope to work with them in the future.

We needed serious help with our PPC campaigns as we were wasting a lot of money on ads. The team at Green Ginger restructured everything, advising and adjusting as necessary along the way to really focus the campaign. We were really pleased with the revenue growth we achieved in such a short amount of time, and although early days still, we are seeing promising results! Very happy and would highly recommend the team at Green Ginger Digital.
