content, content corner

Whether or not we realize it, we all consume content throughout the day. Obviously, we have our go-to books and must-read magazines. But today’s definition of content extends past these standard avenues and is at the crux of most modern media that exists in 2019 — even the endless scroll of our Instagram feed relies on it. And all that content has to come from somewhere.


Though we’re not all certified Instagram influencers, the Content Team here at LEWIS features a handful of these creators, and we all strategize, pitch, and draft many forms of content day in and day out. Hoping to share our experiences behind the keyboard with you, we plan to create an ongoing stream of content-related pieces, otherwise known as the “Content Corner” of LEWIS’ blog. But before you read our best attempts at wordsmithing, we first wanted to give you a peek behind the curtain. Meet your LEWIS content crew.

LEWIS tenure: 2 ½ years

Areas of expertise: Cybersecurity, networking industry, B2C tech, HCM software, eCommerce, tourism, film/cinema

Favorite kind of content medium: eBook or Video

Ideal setting for writing: Cozy and cute coffee shop, accompanied by lots of caffeine and plenty of snacks

Where you get your best ideas: Right before I fall asleep (because of course), or on the fly during a meeting. Guess I like to keep myself on my toes

Online brands you love: SoulCycle, Steak-Umm (because who doesn’t love a healthy dose of absurdity), Google, Netflix

Dustin

Dustin McManus

LEWIS tenure: 1 ½ years

Areas of expertise: Cloud technology, open source, AI, B2B & B2C tech, pop culture

Favorite kind of content medium: GIFs and long-form features (I’m a juicy contradiction)

Ideal setting for writing: Any setting where I’m completely disconnected from the internet—i.e. a remote cabin in the mountains, dead zones, airplanes (I refuse to pay for the Wi-Fi), during power outages, my apartment when I forget to reboot the router, etc.

Where you get your best ideas: Oddly enough, early in the morning even though I’m decidedly NOT a morning person. Also right when I lay down to bed because LOL what’s sleep?

Online brands you love: Betches, ClickHole, Dictionary.com, Britney Spears’ fragrance line/Instagram

Fun fact about you: I did department store runway shows as a toddler? I’ve never lost a game of Clue? (This is turning into my Hinge profile…)
 

Maddie

Maddie Linnert

LEWIS tenure: 9 months (elder noob)

Areas of expertise: Content, snarky (but funny) comments, B2C tech, open heart surgery

Favorite kind of content medium: Video, boomerangs, insta/snap stories, tweets

Ideal setting for writing: Anywhere as long as I’m either listening to 90s rap music at full volume or it’s very quiet — there is no in between

Where you get your best ideas: Outside of the box

Online brands you love: The Governors Ball (their insta is 🔥), Taco Bell, NASA, round.boys (if you don’t know, now you know)

Favorite kind of content medium: Infographics or video

Ideal setting for writing: Anywhere I can see the ocean (preferably with coffee or food involved)

Where you get your best ideas: When I’m inevitably overspending at Target or when I’m driving and can’t write anything down. It be like that sometimes

Online brands you love: Trader Joe’s (their insta is inspirational), 1UP Nutrition (also inspirational and makes me hate myself), Thrillist, Buzzfeed, INSIDER

Fun fact about you: I’ve been to nine countries outside of the U.S., so I guess you could say I’m #cultured
