Whether you are a local small business, a solo entrepreneur, or a large agency owner, you need to hire a Social Media Manager.
As defined, someone who has an above-average to advanced level of knowledge & expertise in all things social media.
A person who lives and breaths the comings and going of social media trends.
An individual whose sole role for your company is to ensure you are properly and effectively represented in the ever-changing and busy world of social media.
In this article, I am going to share with you my reasons for why it’s important to hire a Social Media Manager.
Before I begin though let me just say this; I am a Social Media Manager for local small businesses. I plan, create, schedule and engage in their content on their behalf.
I ensure my clients stay front of mind to...
Did you know there are Social Media Dos & Donts for Small businesses? Yup...
But, Social Media... Do we learn to love it & use it? Or do we just simply put up with it as a necessary tool for societal connection? I think the way in which you answer depends very much so on how and why you use the platform. Using Facebook as a business is going to look very much different than how you use it as a 30 year old wife and mother of 2. There are a lot of common social media dos & donts for posting and much more detail we could get into regarding how to use social media for your business or to grow your online influence. But for now, I wanted to provide you with a quick and simple Social Media Do's & Don'ts cheatsheet for the 4 social media channels that I use the most and that I find most of my friends and clients use as well.
Let’s talk about hashtags… because everyone else is, right?!
These 5 questions are going to get answered in the next 5-10 minutes (depending on how quickly you skim through or read ) and you are going to want to make sure and bookmark this so you can come back to it in the future!
Well my fellow small business owner and online entrepreneur, shall we dive in?
Hashtags (n) a word or phrase preceded by a hash sign (#), used on social media websites and applications, especially Twitter, to identify digital content on a specific topic. (source Oxford Language).
So essentially, it’s a special way that social media sites can find and identify content on their platforms.

Over the last 7 years of being in the entrepreneurship space and I've been able to meet a lot of people who have so many wonderful ideas for starting a business, creating a product, etc. but most don't end up doing it because they're "waiting for a sign" that they should do it. (I've been there too at times!!)
Don't get me wrong... I'm definitely one to pray on big decisions, seek wisdom from trusted mentors, and try not to rush into unchartered territories. But I'm also very aware of whether it's a matter of needing "confirmation" (or in honesty, approval from others)... OR if it's more of a COMFORT ZONE issue.
Yeah, I'm going there with you my friend... I want to give you some encouragement and perhaps a little bit of my story can inspire you, because with all honesty, starting my freelance marketing company in June 2018 and then moving full time with it by October that year happened both quickly & a little bit unexpectantly.

What are the must have tools for a social media manager to have in place in order to run an incredible social media management business? Well, that's what we're going to cover today.
For me and my business, when I started it back in 2018, I kinda was just figuring things out on my own. I had five years experience in the digital marketing arena.

So I would be on the front lines of working with businesses and helping them to figure out what type of marketing strategy they needed for their business.
