Many business owners (especially new ones struggling with managing all hats of their company) shy away from incorporating social media right away into their business and marketing strategy for various reasons.

This may be due to..

  • Overwhelm
  • Fear
  • Too much going on
  • Issues with posting at the right times – is there even such a thing?
  • Lack of a guide or guidance
  • A hard time keeping up with social media trends
  • Or just simply due to the lack of knowledge on social media platforms

However, a social media manager helps you streamline your posts and brand and tie it back into your business blueprint and overall marketing strategy – getting it all right in front of your target audience.

Let me give you an example..

Suppose you own a service-based business and contemplate running promotions for the holidays. However, your social media is filled with inspiring content – which may or may not is performing well. If you begin blasting out promotional content, you may only hear crickets – why’s that?

It all comes down to a strategy.

A freelance social media manager may approach this scenario this way:

Set a specific date – holiday, event, etc.

Begin warming up your audience with content that makes them feel heard and validated – establish a specific day x days/weeks before the promotion. 

At x days/weeks before the promotion – Begin to give high-value content that solves some of their problems and make sure that your company is at the heart of the solutions. 

Finally, just before the promotion’s precise date, you begin explaining your promotion in relation to their problem and the answer being your business.

As you can see, a highly skilled social media manager will have such calendars implemented within your business’s overall social media strategy and any events that you may be thinking of. It takes skill, knowledge, sophistication, and passion for developing concepts that work for your audience and business.
