#AgencyLife: Stuff Social Media Marketing People Are Preoccupied With


Recently we’ve had a lot of our clients and friends ask us to share more about life at Firebelly a.k.a our version of #agencylife. The stuff we’re preoccupied with: music, films, books etc. You know stuff that we, social media marketing people, feed our brains, hearts and souls!

We’re not really a self-important group. Words to describe us would be serious about our work, but pretty laid back and irreverent about ourselves and life in general.

Cultural preoccupations of social media marketing agency people

Everyone filled out a short survey so we could share what we’re doing while researching audiences, following trending hashtags, uploading Instagram Stories, developing monthly calendars, running Facebook ads, reviewing content intelligence and other social media marketing agency “stuff.”

At the end of this post, there is a Spotify list of the tracks we’re listening to at the moment!

We hope you enjoy this! Please let us know what you think on one of our social outposts.
