Employee Spotlight: Camille Vlahos, Senior Social Media Manager & Team Lead

What is your position here at The Modern Connection and what do you do?

I am a Social Media Manager and (newly) the Social Media Team Lead. As a SMM, I manage clients’ social accounts and their online presence. I take on everything from designing a new cover photo to writing a blog to posting to Instagram. Whether it’s daily content creation or doing live updates on social during an event, this job is never dull. As Social Media Team Lead, I’ll be working with each SMM to brainstorm new ideas, review content, help troubleshoot an issue and really anything else that I can do to be of any assistance. We’re always working together to refine processes and streamline.

What did you do before working at The Modern Connection?

I was an intern at LeapFrog PR here in Charleston before I came to TMC. During my internship, I learned a lot about public relations and I got to work with some really fun clients. One thing I was asked to do before my internship ended was to create a social media package proposal mock-up. That’s when I really started diving into digital marketing and the benefits it has for brands, small and large.

How did you learn to do what you do?

I took one class in college that was social media driven. The curriculum was pretty facts-based though, so it wasn’t until my first social media internship that I actually had real hands-on experience running a brand’s social media platforms. I interned there for 3 semesters and was able to take away a lot of new-found knowledge about the industry.

What is your favorite project you’ve worked on at The Modern Connection?

I have worked on so many amazing projects during my time here, each one unique. One of my favorites though would have to be taking photos and styling a photoshoot for a restaurant client and then using those photos to create content for them. It’s so rewarding to see the entire process come together to create something great. A new project that I am thrilled to be working on is Charleston Fashion Week, who we’ve partnered with to help with social media. There are so many moving parts in this project and it will incredible to see everything through.

What do you love about working at The Modern Connection?

First and foremost, I love this team. Every single person that I work with is just the absolute best. But I also love working with my clients. It’s my clients that keep me driven to provide results and I always want them to be 100% confident in the work I do for them.

What is your favorite quote that applies to your work?

“People do not buy goods and services. They buy relations, stories and magic.” Seth Godin

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

After being on the computer and on my phone all day, I am so appreciative of time to unplug. I love being in the kitchen. Baking is a favorite and I enjoying making gourmet dinners when time allows (with a glass of wine in hand, of course). I cherish quality time with my sweet pup, Nelli and my husband, Alex more than anything.
