Adding a social media manager to your team can help you expand your marketing efforts without adding to your headaches. And if you don’t require the services of a full-time person, then out-sourcing it could be the most cost effective method.
We all know that in order for social media to work, you need to be active all the time. But what tends to happen is that you are active for a few days and then when you login again a few days or weeks have passed. Most of us simply do not have the time to be active everyday and to perform all the tasks that are required to be successful.
And this is where a social media manager can help.
1. Setup Your Social Media Profiles
Joining social media networks can be frustrating. Each network has different requirements and rules which continue to change. Since we interact with networks on a daily basis, we know how to setup your account on a range of networks including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and WordPress blogs.
2. Clean-Up Your Networks
We keep the important information and get rid of the spam. Unlike automated programs that cannot distinguish between the good and the bad, we discuss what is important to you and develop systems and guidelines to give you more of what you do want.
3. Reputation Management
By monitoring what people are saying about you, we can notify you and react quickly if there were any negative comments. Addressing the issue quickly generally reduces its impact and resolves the situation before it has a chance to escalate.
4. Determine the Best Platforms and Tools
The fast pace of change in the online world can be difficult to manage. We research and seek out other networks and test new products to see if they are the right fit for you.
5. Social Media Support
Update your status, answer direct messages, approve friends requests and comments on your behalf are all examples of social media support. Please note that we never post any message that has not already been pre-approved by the client.
Advanced support can also include audience building, content distribution and content creation depending on your needs.
If you’re looking to get started in social media and adding it to your marketing mix or if you want to get your existing accounts back on track, then consider a social media manager. Contact us to talk about your specific social media needs.
