To get to know who we are and what kind of person we are, we ask a few questions. Here are the questions and answers of Daphné Vermeiren
Describe yourself using only emojis
What's the best place you've traveled to?
As I did one of my internships at an animal shelter in Zambia, I must definitely say Southern African countries stole my heart. During my internship, I visited places in Zambia (Victoria Falls is definitely high on my list!), Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Cape Town in South Africa. Two months of saving animals combined with traveling - a dream come true! 🌍
What's your role at Wheelhouse?
As a Marketing Manager for Wheelhouse, I make sure digital marketing is on point. 🚀 To summarize my job: I make sure the team is seen on social media, I write blogs and share the team's insights, design visuals, come up with campaigns. I basically do anything that's marketing-related.
What's your favorite food?
That's a hard choice. As long as it's vegetarian, I love it! Maybe pizza? Or fries? Or tacos? Or salads? (I guess you can imagine the struggle of my boyfriend asking me what I want to eat). 🍕🥗🍟🌮
Can you speak more than one language?
Yes, actually! I can speak and write in: Dutch (Flemish), English, French, Spanish, and some rusty German. Some better than the other. 🤪
Are you a cat or a dog person?
I used to be a dog person. I even worked in a dog hotel for four years as a student. Since I moved to live on my own, I got a little cat called Maurice a.k.a. Momo and he stole my heart. I would consider myself as a dog-and-Momo person now. ❤️
Fun fact: my favorite breeds are golden retrievers, dwarf dachshunds, and white shepherds.
This year, sport-wise, I want to do a quarter triathlon and I’m even considering getting started for training for a full marathon, but I’m not ready to commit to that resolution for 100% 😜. Marketing-wise, I would really love to hit 2000 followers on the Wheelhouse LinkedIn, so go ahead and follow our page while you’re at it! 😉
- Apple Pencil
I recently ordered an iPad Air via our flexible income plan and so far, I mostly have been using it to watch Neflix (oops). To actually start using it for work, I’m having my eye on an Apple Pencil. This way, I can get creative on my iPad as well and take notes.
As a marketing manager, keeping SEO in mind is important. As there are a lot of SEO tools out there, I have tried and tested many of them. Ahrefs really did stand out to me. It lets you check any URL’s top organic keywords, while also estimating how much traffic a competitor receives for any given search term. You can also identify a site’s top-performing content and sources of backlinks.
It's amazing to analyze your own website and those of your competitors.
