B2B & B2C

Artesian Tan came to the DMC (Digital Marketing Clinic) on Baldwin Wallace's campus to gain a refresh on their social media strategies. I as well as a group of digital marketing majors was assigned to Artesian Tan to tackle this project.

  • Research Pinterest best practices to create a guide for future posting

  • Edit and revamp Artesian Tan's Pinterest account

I was an account specialist for BW's Digital Marketing Clinic and a part of the group in charge of Artesian Tan's digital marketing needs. I was solely in charge of Artesian Tan's Pinterest and completed all research, client communications, and project completion for Artesian Tan.

I successfully increased Artesian Tan's Pinterest account from 11k monthly viewers to 168.7k in a few weeks. I also achieved a new look and voice for the brand for this platform. Belinda informed me this also improved site visits and an increase in sales during their slow season due to the Pinterest improvements. 


Several posts received over 2k impressions and 1-2 posts received over 10k impressions. 


Created a new page called "Self-Love" where Artesian Tan celebrates everyone's body in an attempt to step out of the exclusive identity the tanning industry has.
