Employee Spotlight: Five Minutes with Content Producer, Diana Bishop

DSCN1389It didn’t take long for Content Boost’s Diana Bishop to make a name for herself within the Content Boost family. Not only can this writing powerhouse pack a serious content marketing punch—she can crank out a pretty awesome case study—but she is also the first to give a warm “good morning” and friendly smile each day.

“Each day at Content Boost I bring my enthusiasm (I have a lot of it) to both my work and my interactions with my teammates,” Diana says. “I’m the type of person who feeds off the energy of others so I love when our group bursts into spontaneous conversation or when I get positive feedback from a client. It makes me love doing what I do when I can share great experiences with other people.”

Learn more about Diana in our latest five-minute catch up:

  1. Do you have a nickname?

How much time do you have? My family calls me “Di,” among other embarrassing variations of which I will not be sharing, while my friends call me “D.” However, over the years they’ve taken to putting their own twists on my initial—the most popular being “Sweet D.” Whenever I introduce myself as Diana to a friend of a friend I usually get an, “Oh, you’re Sweet D!”

  1. What motivated you to join Content Boost?

I love to write about anything and everything. I’ve got everything from memoir to technical writing in my repertoire. In addition, being able to engage with Content Boost’s collection of innovative clients and collaborate with a team of incredibly brilliant minds were huge benefits in my eyes. I also felt that the position of Content Producer sounded extremely fulfilling since I would be able to execute my passion for writing each day while fine-tuning my marketing skills. It sounded creatively and intellectually stimulating—the most important factors on my checklist.

  1. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be and why?

Hands down, without a doubt, no questions asked: Barcelona, Spain. There’s mountains, city life, the beach, vibrant culture, not to mention the best food in the world. As you might have guessed by now I’m totally obsessed after my semester abroad. I’m still not over it, and I don’t think I ever will be until I can find a reason to go back!

  1. What’s your favorite content marketing vehicle and why?

I’d definitely have to say blogging. There are endless possibilities in this medium, in my opinion. Whether it’s crafting an informative news story, relaying industry insights or offering up actionable tips (like how to improve your content marketing strategy) there are so many different angles for stories and room for creative liberty. Blogging is a fresh canvas and as a writer I can let the story flow where it may; to me this marketing vehicle is more fluid in creation. It also gives businesses an edge in demonstrating their industry knowledge and insights as blogs provide just enough content to leave readers informed and intrigued. They are not as long as a whitepaper or concise like a social media post (which are both great in their own respects); they are right in the middle.

  1. What do you do in your spare time?

420965_10150694198535540_1322422180_nI like to think of myself as an adventurer. Now, I haven’t had quite as exciting of an adventure since my trip to Barcelona. But, anything will do really so long as it’s something new. Whether I’m doing something minimal like exploring the menu of a new restaurant (I’m a brunch enthusiast) or something more adrenaline inducing like the time I biked across the Golden Gate Bridge or skydived (I’ll admit I was a mildly horrified at both but they were worth it in the end), I’m always up for a something that will add some color to my normal routine.

  1. What do you like most about working at Content Boost?

First and foremost, I love the team! It’s comprised of some of the most hardworking and encouraging people I’ve ever encountered. I also love being able to contribute meaningful content to our clients. It’s so rewarding to know that each blog, eBook or case study we write for our clients plays a direct hand in improving their marketing efforts and helping them become prominent thought leaders in their industries. To that end, I also love engaging with clients; it’s so important to brainstorm and I love hearing the feedback. It’s all very rewarding!

  1. What is one thing prospective and existing clients should know about Content Boost that they don’t already?

Prospective and existing clients should know that the team of content marketers here at Content Boost is a group of the adaptable and creative writers. They can write about a myriad of topics and know how to leverage marketing vehicles optimally. I love to read my teammates’ articles because they are so engaging and well written; we are constantly challenging each other to redefine standards of excellence surrounding content creation. Prospective and existing clients can rest assured that our team of experts can tackle any subject with poise and a refreshing perspective.

  1. If you could be on any reality TV show what would it be? And more importantly, could you win?

I’m not big on reality television, but I’ve imagined what it would be like to audition for “American Idol.” Or, maybe I should say “The Voice” because who really watches “American Idol” anymore anyway? I don’t think I could win since I only sing my heart out in the privacy of my own car (for everyone else’s safety), but I do wonder if I could make a big enough impression to at least make it on TV. I used to be a competitive figure skater so there’s a bit of me that enjoys being in the spotlight every now and then.

  1. If Content Boost was an 80’s brat pack movie—what movie would it be and what character would you be?

I’d like to say the “Breakfast Club” just because I absolutely love that movie. But, I do think it’s pretty relevant to our team here at Content Boost because we are all such different, but intelligent and insightful people. And, just like in the Breakfast Club, when our team collaborates we produce some pretty amazing results! I can’t say that I truly identify with any of these characters, but I’d probably have to go with Brian because if that were me in high school my friends would have chosen me to write the final essay as well. Not to mention, he showed off some killer moves in the dancing montage.

  1. Three words that best describe you.

You see, my aunt likes to assign people their own brands of which she defines. She described mine as “friendly and approachable.” But, if I had to add a third one for myself I’d say, creative!
