CRC Press

CRC Press / T&F Group | Web and Social Media Marketing Manager
Boca Raton, Fla. | 2008 to 2011

crcpress siteManaged comprehensive online marketing program for this leading global scientific and technical publisher that publishes over a thousand new books
a year across a variety of disciplines

As the Web & Social Media Marketing Manager at CRC Press, I was responsible for managing the web and social media content for this international, academic publisher. I was involved in taking their new website, CRCPress.com, through beta and it’s ultimate debut online.

In addition to managing their comprehensive ecommerce site, which includes thousands of titles, I also had an opportunity to develop a few sites that were dedicated to individual titles that held a lot of promise, including the You Can Count on Monsters site, and a companion site for Physical Properties of Materials.

I was deeply involved in developing their email marketing program, using MagnetMail, and was also integral in getting the press up on the social media outlets. I have also included links to some of the videos I compiled for our budding author video program, which was successful in drawing a lot of attention to the titles, authors and editors.
