As a Social Media Manager/Consultant I am a bit bias to this post, but non the less having someone that takes care of your online marketing is crucial in today’s world of promotion. I absolutely love working with businesses that see huge results from the work that I do for them through the virtual world. There are some businesses however that don’t see the need just yet for Social Media Management, and this post will help decide when is the proper time to not only hire someone for your marketing but WHY you need someone! Here we go!
Have you ever had that voice in your head that tells you that you need to post on Facebook or Instagram, but by the end of the day you #1 forget, or #2 don’t even know what to say? You are so dog gone tired that doing that last stitch effort of Social Media posting is just exhausting to you. Have you ever thought or felt this? Having a Social Media Manager will help keep you consistent with your audience online. This way, the posting NEVER stops! You have a consistent voice for your brand online and someone that does it for you! Consistency is the #1 key to a healthy online presence.
2. Brand Representation and Customer Service
Having a Social Media Manager will help respond to those positive and even the negative comments about your business online. They are your virtual online reputation manager. Make sure to double check the packaging in which you are hiring this Social Media Manager. Not everyone offers this type of service for your business with a lower package. 🙂
3. Steady Growth and Engagement
Having someone that is working for you to grow your business online and create engagement for you is priceless. Your customers and clients will never miss a beat because someone is there engaging with them. While you do, what you do best (hint: your business) there is someone growing your online presence and engaging.
4. Having A Plan
Social Media Managers should have the know how in order to help put a plan into place. This means heavy knowledge about Facebook, Instagram, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest or whatever Social Media platform they recommend is the best for YOU. Without a plan, you have no idea what your efforts should be. You also need this plan to know where to draw your audience. What would you like for your audience to click on? To view? To Buy? To Share? These are some calls to action within the plan that will help. Having a Social Media Manager to execute this plan is part of your success.
