“To show a relevant presence in social media, you need two things: a broad understanding of people’s needs and good relatable content that pleases the targeted audience. At this time and age, the community is attracted to various niches of content, so there will always be a new innovative approach to make something viral. It is more than okay to make bold statements, and you shouldn’t shy away from that, but you ought to keep in mind the aspect of what is necessary”, Astraea said.
As a young undergrad with great people skills and the experience to analyse and understand who a person is, she chose a BS in marketing as her major as it coincided with what she wanted to pursue. Her warm and amiable behaviour rewarded her with a good reputation among clients. She was natural at it, and in 2019 she started working as a talent manager wherein she tailored client-specific strategies and techniques for their success. She has acquired the requisite skills essential for networking, branding, and management throughout her career.
Her versatility can be viewed from the fact that she has shouldered different roles in such a short amount of time and continued to excel at each new thing she took on. Currently, she is the CEO of Revoura LLC and oversees its brand visibility and recognition. She has her unique working methodology wherein she improves the quality of content through content production, websites, and social media management. Striking and quick results can be seen through her marketing tactics mentioned above.
