esd and associates, others put San Antonio In Social Media National Spotlight For The First Time

San Antonio #socialmadness winners esd and associates, a full service digital creative agency, and Firstmark Credit Union are showing the country why San Antonio is a social media force. The two companies are hosting a Tweetup Wednesday, July 25, 2012 from 5 – 7p.m., at Silo Elevated Cuisine & Bar on Austin Highway. The San Antonio Social Media Tweetup will bring  dozens of local businesses together, joining forces to make it to the next level of a nationwide competition.

esd and associates won the local round of the first-ever #socialmadness social media contest for the small business category while Firstmark Credit Union won the medium company category. Now the two businesses are rallying together to take on the nation.  The national winner receives $10,000 for the charity of their choice. esd and associates has chosen Morgan’s Wonderland as their charity.

“We wanted to host this Tweetup for a few reasons,” said Michelle Julazadeh, Social Media Strategist for esd and associates. “First of all, we wanted to create a space for the most vocal San Antonio business professionals to come together and share ways to grow online and become even stronger thought leaders. But more importantly, we want to create conversation, share strategies and put San Antonio on the social media map.”

These sentiments are echoed by Firstmark Credit Union, esd’s event co-sponsor.

“We couldn’t have come this far in the Social Madness contest without the support of other San Antonio businesses and fans,” said Firstmark Marketing Promotions Manager, Kelley Farwell. “This event will be a great way to say thank you and rally the best and brightest online local networker to help the San Antonio winners get to the top of the national competition.”

Meet Our Intern Tristen! "I thoroughly enjoyed my time at esd. The esd team truly exceeded my expectations of what I thought it would be like as an intern. I was challenged, taught, and encouraged. I am thankful for the people who helped me start my growth as a business professional and am excited to continue learning and gaining experience in the marketing industry. With graduation in the near future, I hope to find a marketing position with a company that advocates for saving marine life, while continuing my education with a graduate degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from the University of Mississippi :)"

Meet Our Intern Madison! "As an intern at esd I was welcomed with my first real office work environment. I was able to use what I have learned in my courses at school and put them into real world projects. Networking, filming and editing for our big name clients has really helped me fill out my film reel and resume. Using new equipment and software outside the classroom has been a real perk of this internship. I have been taken in by all parts of the esd team, helping across all departments for projects, and learning things from everyone and their jobs at esd. Gaining as much knowledge and more skills to make me more well versed in my field. After college, I am looking forward to working on more video productions for film in Austin and making a name for myself as a director."
