RyePoint Internet Marketing, a Fuquay-Varina Website Design Company that also does Search Engine Optimization, Social Media Marketing and Video Marketing, and packages to customers worldwide. Today only being my first day, we went over the basics of what the company was really about. My Mentor and CEO of the company, Evan Caulfield, has been in this business for almost 22 years and seems to be a really good role model and I will be able to learn a lot from him. Evan has Team Members, a woman who lives in Panama and a man who lives in India. As for the customers, it could be anywhere from a startup business who wants a website, or a business that is growing in popularity.

Some of the things that we did today include: downloading Photoshop, 1password, and Evernote to my laptop. I also received a brief overview of the website creator, WordPress, my role in that being to create some blog posts to SEO RyePoint’s Website. ASANA is one of the ways I can communicate with the RyePoint team and get projects assigned to me, which is similar to Google Classroom or Remind. Along with these things, I created a Mood Board to get inspiration for new Channel/Social Media art. Inspiration included some screenshots of what not to do, along with some images to help give ideas on what to create. As of now, my role at RyePoint is to help out with smaller projects and help design logos and headers for Social Media. Although there will probably be more projects I will be a part of, these are just the main ones we have already discussed.

A cool thing about this Internship is it’s a Coworking space called Fuquay Coworking that exposes me to other companies and people, which is really great for networking. I find it amazing that I am already meeting new people that wish me the best in the future. Evan has already invited me to a Fuquay-Varina Chamber of Commerce marketing meeting, a Business After Hours, a Google Hangout with a former intern with his own brand.  My main goal in Interning here is to gain real life experience in the graphics field, even though the internship is unpaid, I truly don’t mind it. I prefer to get the experience than earn minimum wage at a fast food restaurant.
