Sameera Afzaal

Job Title

Social Media Strategist and Digital Content

Favourite drink

I’m prive to a solid berry based mocktail.

Favourite platform and why?

I have always been a fan of Instagram and it is the platform I create on the most but at the moment I am loving LinkedIn, for valuable connection, industry news and exploring new strategies for my work.

Prediction for what’s hot in digital marketing in the next 6 months?

I’ve got my eye on this whole “digital tv” thing happening at the moment. I am not too sure where it is going to go but the levels of content being generated because of it is quite interesting and it is shaping how entertainment outlets and publishers are looking at social platforms to create, connect and cultivate

What digital marketing trend do you think is totally overrated?

Super curated Instagram Stories, they are really becoming a bore.

Remember back to your first SMPerth, what would you tell yourself to keep in mind?

Have fun and enjoy the company…
