Social Media Manager Ultimate Guide

Social Media Manager Ultimate Guide 

I've been a social media manager for the last 5 years and I love it!  My days are spent doing whatever I choose to do that day. I can work literally from anywhere (as long as there's internet). And I genuinely enjoy what I do. The best part is I'm only 30 and I make 6 figures a year. That is why I created this guide to show you how to become a fully booked, greatly paid social media manager. 

What is a Social Media Manager 
social media manager is the individual in an organization trusted with monitoring, contributing to, filtering, measuring and otherwise guiding the social media presence of a brand, product, individual or corporation.
What Does a Social Media Manager Do
Social media managers are in charge of representing a company across social channels as the sole voice of the brand. They respond to comments, compile campaigns and create content. These experts provide organizations with the guidance needed to enhance their online presence. 
6 Steps to Become a Social Media Manager
Learn Social Media
First, you will need to learn about social media and how to use each platform effectively. We offer a course for only $10 Bucks! . But socialmediamanageruniversity offers a more in depth course for $99! Both courses teaches all the lingo and information you will need to become a social media manager. You will learn things like Facebook ads, Facebook Insights, ROI etc. and every aspect of becoming a social media manager. 
Join a White Label Agency
Next, I suggest joining a white label agency. The truth is most business owners are simply not sold on the fact that social media works. So you will need  another way to get their attention. Web design, SEO, and Lead Generation are all services that business owners understand and know are necessary. 
Working with a White label allows you to offer these services. .A white label is an agency that does the work for you at an extremely low cost. I have used quite a few different practices in the past such as Fiverr and Upwork, but it's really hard to guarantee work.... and the language barrier can affect the work. For instance, I hired a social media manager from the India to help me with my Chiropractor client but a lot of the techniques they were posting were not techniques Americans use. I also tried Vendasta which has a great platform for keeping your clients organized, but their prices were too high to be effective. I Now use ProjectMyTeam because their work is simply amazing and their prices are perfect if you want to scale your agency.
Get a Website 
Once you join ProjectMyTeam White Label Agency they will create a website for you for $50! Their websites are absolutely perfect and it only takes 48-72 hours!
Build a Portfolio
You will need to market your work. Of course if you are just starting out you will not have any work. Which is another reason why  joining a white label is great. Their work is your work. You can use their case studies and portfolio as your own until you begin getting your own. 
Securing Clients 
The best way I secure clients is what I was taught in socialmediamanageruniversity.
You can reach prospects via Email, Text, or Facebook messenger. However, cold calling is the best and easiest method. This is probably the most crucial step getting clients...I highly suggest taking the 7 Day Ultimate Challenge that will guarantee you get your first high paying client.
The Actual Work - Getting Results
 You have to get training. There is no way around it. Simply posting pictures and content is not going to grow your clients page, get them sales, and increase their brand awareness. Again, we offer a training that teaches you what you need to know for $10. We also have free resources throughout this blog. 
Working with a white label agency can also help in this department as they can do the work for you while you are learning. But, it is best to learn all that you can too. 
After working as a social media manager for 5 years I'm at the stage where I have virtual assistants to help me get the work done. I still oversee everything. I do believe that if you truly want to scale your agency you will eventually have to make this leap. 
Keep Learning
Don't Make this hard. I hope you learned some tips. Feel free to reach out to me.

How to Use the New Shopping Feature in Instagram Stories

Instagram recently released a new shopping feature for Instagram Stories which enables businesses to add shopping stickers within Stories. This is a huge leap for the shopping market on Instagram as online stores are no longer limited to linking products using the ‘Swipe Up’ feature. The best part is that you don’t have to be verified or have 10,000 followers to use this new feature!

When followers watch an Instagram Story, they can tap on a sticker to learn more about the product or make a purchase!
