My internship experience thus far has been amazing. There has been some ups and some downs, but overall it has helped me learn how to communicate in the real world and how to handle difficult situations.

Last Fall, I began my internship working on A/B split testing, conversion tracking, and working with Google Analytics for some of Justin’s websites. I worked on this project with two other interns and it really helped me learn how to communicate with others in a work setting. Another cool thing about it was that all communication was via emails and phone calls. I know that in the future it will be more person to person, but knowing how to communicate via email and phone is also very important and I believe this internship has really helped me in communicating in those two ways.

As I said in my last blog post, I am currently managing two of Justin and Dreama’s Twitter accounts. Through building the followings of the account and posting content to one of the accounts, I have learned that Twitter can be used as a great marketing tool. The more people you have that follow you, the more people will hear of you, and the more people will check your site out to see what you have to offer. Intern Profits is a great program and more and more people are going to start hearing about it.

I am very grateful to have been given this opportunity to work for a company that offers so much, and allows you to be flexible with what you want to do for your internship. However, with that being said, it is a very well-structured internship that really helps you learn what your strengths and weaknesses are, and it helps you to improve on your weaknesses. I would recommend anyone and everyone to apply for an internship with Justin and Dreama because you will not regret it!

Over the past year, I have spent many hours working on my internship for Justin and Dreama Lee. Most recently, I have been managing two of their twitter accounts, InternProfits and SDCashDeals.

For the InternProfits account, I have been strictly building the following and followers of the account. I am working with another intern, Cassie Johnson, who is creating the content for the InternProfits account. For the SDCashDeals account, I am building the followers and following of the account as well as posting content to the account. I have a Google Alert set to San Diego Real Estate so anytime an article with the key words “San Diego Real Estate” shows up on the internet, it gets sent to my email. I pick articles that are interesting and have good knowledge of San Diego Real Estate. Along with just posting articles, I usually ask a question after I post the link asking how they liked the article or what their thoughts on the article were.

I had already known a lot about Twitter prior to this internship, so I figured this was going to be pretty easy to manage. However, I realized that there are a ton of different Twitter tools that you can use to post content, build followings, and automate some twitter functions. Though I have been extremely busy and finals week is just around the corner, I am very fortunate to have been given this internship opportunity because I have learned so much about something I thought was so simple.

It has been a week after the soft launch and things have definitely slowed down a lot. The soft launch was a great success and a lot of data was pulled. This week has consisted of going over the data that we pulled and creating a report out of it. This report will consist of important information that will describe which videos performed the best. It was so cool to see that so many people visited the site which shows that Justin and Dreama did a great job with advertising their site and letting people know how crucial it was to watch their videos. What I find most satisfying is putting the data together and seeing how it all comes together for the videos. I am really looking forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas Break but when we return from break we will come right back for another launch which we are all excited for! It is hard work and it keeps us interns busy but it is also interesting and fun work to do!

About 3 weeks ago the soft launch was just getting under way. Now almost three weeks later, the soft launch is coming to a close. Over these past three weeks I have gained an extensive knowledge for analytics. In the first week it was a little tough to get the hang of the analytics but soon after I got the hang of it and it was just an easy step by step process. Tools such as visual website optimizer, tubemogul, and aweber have really helped Justin and Dreama improve their business. So far I have been very intrigued by the work I have done for this internship. In the near future, myself and two other interns will be putting a report together for Justin and Dreama to help them declare which pages performed better than others. I am very excited for what is to come in the next week!

The second week of my internship was a very busy one. First, myself and the other interns had to get ourselves familiarized with visual website optimizer, tubemogul, and google analytics in order to be ready for the first day of the soft launch which was yesterday. All of these tools are pretty simple to use and they can be extremely helpful to your websites if used properly. On top of this, we had several GoToMeetings with Justin and we had to figure out which interns would pull the data on which days. This internship is really helping to show me how important time management is.

These next couple of weeks will get increasingly more busy but I am prepared for what the future holds. Justin helped all of us on our first pulling of the data and he explained it very well so that we could do it by ourselves for the rest of the pullings. I have enjoyed this week because we put all of our research into action and it is really cool to see how it all works out. I am very excited to see what week three brings to us!

After my first week working for Justin and Dreama, I have become even more interested in this internship than I was when I first started!

To begin the week, we had to do some research on what video player would be best to use out of JW Player, Flow Player, and TubeMogul. We decided to use TubeMogul because you can do a lot of different things with this player. We also had a couple of webinars which are exactly what they sound like, web seminars. They were very cool because myself and two other interns got to communicate with Justin via the internet. We got the ball rolling with some things and even got an introduction into Google Adwords with Justin and his Adword expert friend, Kirt Christensen. We got the run around of conversion tracking, Google Analytics, and website optimizer.

Overall it was a great first week and I am very excited to learn more about the internship and to move forward into what I’ll be doing throughout the year!
