Anna Clarke

Social media marketer

Anna initially went to university to study primary school teaching, but after completing her degree decided to complete a Masters Degree in Digital Marketing during the Covid-19 2020 lockdown. Although learning the concept of marketing from scratch, she excelled throughout the course, resulting in a first-class honors degree and multiple certificates for winning projects.

While undertaking the masters, Anna took several free-lance digital marketing projects under her wing, including a local interior designer and a nationally recognized singer/songwriter.

Following the completion of the Master’s degree, Anna joined a Dublin-based digital marketing agency for a summer internship. She worked in unison with a team of graphic designers, SEO specialists, and PPC specialists to carry out digital marketing strategy for clients within the electronics, construction and wholesale industries. While being offered a full-time position within this company, Anna had a passion for the social media side and was then offered the position of Social Media Executive at Louise McDonnell.

Since joining the company, Anna has become an expert in the fundamentals of social media, and has helped over 200 academy members learn their social media potential through being an active support member of the Sell On Social Media Academy. During this time she has also managed social media accounts for over 20 clients, including government organizations.
