our story

how we started

Braden Social Media LLC was founded in 2014 by Eric Braden Zimmett. With more then a decade of practice across journalism, advertising, education, and customer service, Eric has a well-constructed mix of skills aptly suited social media.

Eric’s work also led to a college-level advertising course, Attention & Intent, created and instructed by Eric at Penn State University in 2014 — and an abridged version later taught in lectures at Juniata College and South Hills School of Business & Technology.

Irish folklore: braden feasa

Braden [Bradán] is derived from an Irish Gaelic word meaning “salmon.” The bradán feasa is the ‘Salmon of Knowledge’ in Irish folklore.
