Utilizing my strategy resulted in an increase of 300% follower growth compared to previous months and an increase of 40% likes per post.

MANHATTAN MOTORCARS - GLOBAL CERTIFIED PORSCHE BRAND AMBASSADOR

2013  -  2018

As a Porsche Brand Ambassador in sales, my role required me to meet and greet clients and accompany them on the journey of purchasing a Porsche.  From identifying their needs, offering them our available options, showcasing the amenities and features of the vehicle, accompanying them on a demonstration drive, negotiating a purchase price, proposing a method of payment, and handling the plethora of legal paperwork involved in an automotive transaction; every step of the way, I was their guide.  In addition to being an Ambassador, I also individually managed a social media presence for the dealership and my own book of business in order to generate sales leads.

PROJECTS

For as long as I can remember, every story that stands out in my mind revolves around an automobile. They bring us safely home from the hospital when we're babies. They drop us off on our first day of school. They help us pick up our prom date. They help us bring our stuff to college. They take us home after our first break up. They help us get to our first date with your future significant other. And funny enough, they help us bring OUR baby home from the hospital. Cars play a silent, but integral role in our lives. My passion is telling stories about how cars make us feel and how they're always there, even when they aren't.
