You may be wondering what skills you need to be a social media manager?
You will need to have a strong understanding of how the internet works and what makes people click. You’ll also want to have great communication skills, including an eye for detail as well as good grammar and spelling abilities. As more and more businesses turn to social media for marketing, you will need some experience in marketing or advertising, although it doesn’t have to be paid work experience.
You will also need some knowledge of popular social media platforms like Facebook, TikTok, and Instagram. You’ll want to be skilled with content creation including creating graphics or videos that relate to your client’s brand. That being said, you don’t have to know the ins and outs of every platform out there in order to become a social media, most social media managers specialize in one platform.
Social media managers may also need to be skilled in using analytics for measuring their success. You will need to know more details than just follower and like count. These vanity metrics do not truly reflect the performance of the business therefore it is important to know how to analyze the results you are seeing on the specific platform.
As a social media manager, you will be responsible for scheduling posts, monitoring social media feeds, and updating their company’s profiles.
One mistake that I see a lot of new social media managers make is that they assume that it’s easy. They assume since they have a Tiktok account or Instagram account that they’ll know how to grow a business account. The truth is professional accounts are very different from personal accounts, they even differ from industry to industry.
Before you start a social media management business, ask yourself these questions to determine if social media management is right for you…
- Why do I want to offer this service?
- Do I have a clear understanding of how marketing works?
- Am I a good storyteller?
- Do I have an eye for design?
