Welcome to our second “Meet The Team” blog post, where I interview new members of Schaaf-PartnerCentric and talk to them about how they ended up in the affiliate marketing industry and how their experience is here at Schaaf-PartnerCentric. In today’s Meet The Team blog, I have decided to interview Gayoung Lee who is an Affiliate Marketing Analyst for Schaaf-PartnerCentric.

What is your background and how did you find Schaaf-PartnerCentric?

“Before Schaaf-PartnerCentric, I was a Marketing Manager at an exhibitionist center in Korea and spent seven years as a director in a private school in South Korea. I started using Social media campaigning in Korea and the U.S. and I received a MBA from St. Edwards University in Austin. What brought me to Schaaf-PartnerCentric was their need for a Korean Marketing Analyst and I was amazed by the size of the industry and it’s potential for growth.”

What do you do for SPC and what do you like the most about your position?

“My daily routine starts by checking my emails with publishers and then creating weekly and monthly reports for clients with data. I also aid in recruitment and generate sales and new accounts as well as data mine for potential client recruitments. Other duties that I have throughout the day are PR reports, correcting data, aiding with program manager support and trademark monitoring. Whenever I am free from working on reports, I also work as the team photographer by taking pictures for new members as well as pictures for our networking events.”

“What motivates me when working is knowing that I am helping people by giving them good information. I love learning more about the industry as well as compiling data and integrating it into reports. I take pride in being very detail-oriented and making sure all of my data is correct before presenting it to clients.”

What do you like the most about SPC?

“I love the company culture, the idea of how it was founded, and especially the team members that I work with. I like the idea that everyone is open for change and improvements with the company.”

What do you work on outside of SPC?

“When I am not working in the office, I like to work on my Korean blog, manage a movie social media platform, and produce international documentaries. My other hobbies include loving animals, traveling, and taking photos.”

What advice would you give to new hires here at SPC?

“My job as a marketing analyst is very specific and the industry is always changing. New hires do not expect to know everything right away so keep an open mind when learning about the position. Everybody is nice and helpful so try not to stress out and remember to relax to the new information and the environment.”
