HOW DID YOU GET INTO CREATIVE DIGITAL MARKETING?
I started blogging when I was 15 years old and in 6 months, I had thousands of visitors on my blog which led to collaborations with brands. I was doing digital marketing without knowing what it was. After high school I went to study my BBA in Haaga-Helia and MBA in Eastern University of Finland where I studied international business and marketing. During my studies I started doing social media for a few companies and then learned more skills on my own (website design, branding etc) with the help of my studies. Then I just started growing my client base and getting experience in different areas of digital marketing by being an entrepreneur (kevytyrittäjä). Everything has grown from there with hard work, passion, and a little bit of luck.
WHAT’S NEXT FOR SELENE CREATIVE?
Selene Creative is now approximately 1,5 years old. We have grown from a one woman show to a small team of three. We have some internationalization aspects but first we still want to get a better foothold in Finland. We aim to be an exclusive boutique studio with the most unique and aesthetic customer experiences.
WHERE DO YOU GET INSPIRATION FROM?
Life, my mom, spirituality, and social media.
