As a Social media account manager it’s all about day-to-day content management that never ends. Don’t be swayed by consultants who say they’re ‘industry specific.’ You need a social media partner who understands social media, period. If you understand social media you can apply that knowledge across many different industries. Social media accounts demand constant monitoring.
You need me as your Social Media Account Manager, or not?
In today’s digital world, it’s crucial to build a social media following to engage with your audience, build your brand and manage your companies perception. Being a Social Media Account Manager is a dedicated day to day job. It’s not enough to simply throw a couple of links or images on Facebook every few days and hope for the best; there’s significant strategy behind what to post, when to post it, and how to craft content so that it reaches as many people as possible.

That’s almost an entire workweek – and unless you’re running a travel agency or a video rental shop, you can’t spare a workweek out of each month to spend on a social profile.

Social media management can be a double-edged sword for small businesses. But when done improperly, it can do more harm than good. Determining whether to hire someone to handle your social profiles for you is a highly personal decision, but it ultimately comes down to what’s best for your business.
