We want to take a second to introduce the face behind our social media profiles and content! Wynee Bermudez joined our Duck Pond back in December 2019 and makes sure that content for every client is unique, relevant, creative, informs and meets specific business goals. Overseeing various social networks, Wynee spends her time brainstorming ways to engage audiences and followers. When she’s not working, Wynee runs the food and travel blog Wynee’s World. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Mass Media from USC-Upstate.
Q: You are one of our newest ducks. What do you like about working at YDM?
A: I love the team environment at YDM. Everyone pitches in when you have a question or need help. We all have specific job titles but no one shies away from helping another teammate out when needed.
Q: What is the most important social media channel to be on? Is Twitter dead?
A: Each social media channel serves a unique purpose. Twitter is certainly not dead as it serves as a news outlet for many audiences around the world. But, if I had to choose a platform that shouldn’t be overlooked at all, it would be Facebook. Facebook is vital to many social media/marketing features such as ads, promotions and creating an Instagram business account.
Q: What do you like to do when you’re not working?
A: When I’m not working I love to travel and eat!! I’m definitely more of an experiences over material things kind of person. Traveling is one of my favorite things to do, even if it’s a quick roadtrip to a nearby city. On the flip side, if I’m not traveling or eating, I truly enjoy just decompressing in my apartment and watching movies or listening to music.
Q: As an avid travel and food blogger, what do you think are the three best dishes in Charlotte?
A: Ugh, do I have to pick just 3?
- Haberdish’s Mac & Cheese with fried chicken skins
- Carne Asada tacos [or any taco, really] from El Nevado
- Ace burger from Ace No. 3
Q: Social media can move quickly at times. How do you keep up?
A: I actually really really enjoy social media outside of work. I’m unconsciously “always on” even when I’m not. I’m taking in every trend, hashtag, photo and new editing app all the time. Although I don’t have to try to keep up, I do like staying informed and reading/listening from experts. Here are some of my go-tos:
- Planoly’s blog posts
- The Influencer Podcast
- The Art of Online Business Podcast
Q: What do you think the future of social media looks like?
A: The future of social media is much more solid than it was 10-12 years ago. I think now, social media platforms have more power than they ever had. We will start to see social media business pages become more of a one-stop shop. Virtual reality will find a way to integrate with social media in ways of customer service. I think the future of social media could be many things, and we shouldn’t be surprised for what’s next to come!
