Brad Ehney's Summary
Constantly tinkering with everything to understand and develop useful promotional tools for clients.
Currently working with a company a friend and I launched together in 2009. I spend my days coordinating social media strategies for clients. Communicating to my coworkers about content ideas and generation for the social media presence of multiple clients. Editing content calendars for social media accounts including custom graphics or content generated by fans. Community management across all social media channels is something I do almost 24x7.
When I'm not deep in social media I'm working on inbound email marketing campaigns ranging from dental and pet products to event marketing, including concerts.
I'm well versed in advertising on social media platforms including, but not limited to, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr and Google (Google Adwords).
Software and Apps that I'm well versed in are:
Adobe Creative Suite
Google Drive aka Google Docs
Google Apps for businesses.
Pretty much anything you ask me to learn I can pick up in a matter of minutes.
Brad Ehney's Experience
Director of Operations Marketing Strategist | Marketing Technologist | Digital Marketing
Public Company; 1-10 employees; Marketing and Advertising industry
2010 – Present (4 years) Dallas/Fort Worth Area
Managing a team of individuals and coming up with marketing plans for multiple brands via social media including Facebook, Twitter and any other emerging networks.
Gilley's Dallas Complex
Built up and managed multiple profiles for the Gilley's Dallas complex (The Loft, Gilley's Dallas, South Side Music Hall) for Twitter and Facebook. Created posting schedules for profiles that included event announcements, on sales, information about the bands coming to the venues.
This included working with multiple music blogs in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and news organizations to cover the shows by either getting interviews with the bands or doing ticket giveaways.
Organized meet and greets with the artists and their fans via contests promoted through the social profiles. They were exclusive contests that required the fans to be followers of either our Twitter or Facebook profiles.
Built a weekly email that was edited via a Google Spreadsheet that generated the code for the email. This was built so we could easily add in new shows on the fly before the email was to be sent out to our subscriber base.
G TX Catering
Developed an email invitation to go out to a select group of potential clients for our monthly open house event. These events were done to show how well we could cater an event and offer tours of the venues available for rental within the 90,000 square foot Gilley's Dallas Complex.
Launched in 2011 as an independent booking agency and we started booking concerts all around the Dallas area with a heavy focus on the Deep Ellum area. We primarily market concerts in the indie music genre via our social profiles and an email newsletter that goes out to 20k+ individuals bi-weekly.
I also worked on migrating businesses from Microsoft Outlook & Microsoft office products to Google Apps for Businesses.

November 2009 – May 2010 (7 months)
Got my job by creating a social media campaign story here: http://uhype.me/job . Worked to build up the Facebook fan page from scratch to a large following by doing multiple contests that involved meet & greets with the artists. Worked to build up the Twitter following by connecting with our advocates.
Inside the theater we brought the now famous/infamous Twitter Wall where the fans can entertain themselves while waiting for the bands to go on stage.
Also developed a custom video marketing tool that runs on the main theater screen that markets future events. The tool allowed for editing of the playlist of shows each time so that the concerts being marketed fit the audience that was exposed to them. A modified version of this screen is still in use in the theater.
