I’m delighted that you’d think of hiring me to handle your social media management. However, I’ve transitioned to a full-time writer and creator, and have not worked for clients since 2018.
But guess what? You actually don’t need me – or any other social media management guru – for that matter. What you DO need is a set of templates for social media, and a scheduler. This will allow you to easily add your photos to already pre-designed templates and publish them with YOUR words and YOUR thoughts online.
You are the one closest to your brand. You’re going to want to keep a pulse on what is happening with your posts, with what images work best for your brand, and emerging trends. You can’t accomplish that if you farm out your work or contract it out.
I know there are many fantastic virtual and personal assistants out there, ready and willing to take your hard-earned dollars with promises of doing a great job for you. The reality is, unless you’re willing to pay someone a decent salary of around $75k a year (fair for a typical sales strategist), all you’re doing is having someone robotically post for you. YOU are capable of doing that.
The other thing is, you don’t have to constantly be present on social media in order to make an impact on your sales. You can use other avenues such as Pinterest and Google to strengthen your visibility and bring in traffic naturally.
If you hire someone to handle your social media or handle tasks for you, you’re going to have to be equally prepared to fire someone, too. Keep that in mind before you hire someone to do tasks you are better suited for! Your brand belongs close to your heart and it’s imperative you keep your hands on it.
You want something done right? Do it yourself! :) I’m all for empowering authors, writers, and business owners to take on these projects and keep everything in-house by learning how to be more productive at it and by using templates that are already ready to go. Having the right tools makes a difference.
