You may recognize the author of our second INTERNal Perspective blog entry. Already famous for her many amazing “Petal Talk” posts, Interactive Marketing Intern Chelsea Ripp gives her insights from an inside view of interning at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM in her own words:
“My name is Chelsea Ripp and I am a Marketing and Graphic Design double major at the University of Notre Dame, home of the Fighting Irish. My passion for both the creative and analytical part of business has brought me to 1-800-FLOWERS.COM this summer, interning with the search engine optimization (SEO) team. I was welcomed with open arms and instantly immersed into the company’s flowering culture (pun intended!) I have learned everything from SEO and SEM tactics, the elements of a good online advertisement, the difference between a paid and unpaid search, the crazy world of social media marketing and affiliate business. The skills and knowledge that I have obtained during my time at the company has been invaluable and I’m sure will benefit my career!
Additionally, I recently sent my cousin Sick as a Dog from the a-DOG-able collection while he was recovering from major surgery. His face lit up as soon as he saw the arrangement and told us that he instantly felt better! My aunt took a picture of the a-DOG-able and sent it out to the rest of the family, becoming viral sensation throughout the Ripp family. 1-800-FLOWERS.COM not only gave my summer and education a boost,but also my entire family’s mood!”
