So you want to be a Social Media Manager

Social Media ManagerI know I post a lot referencing Hootsuite, but so much of their content is on topic. Plus, as an Ambassador I get sent blog posts and Slideshares. Very convenient for when I’m in the middle of a semester, like now.

Recently I’ve been asked by a few people how to start a career as a digital marketer. I am working on a larger post, but Hootsuite has just released How To Be A Social Media Manager And Excel At It on Slideshare and it covers many of the same skills. Or should I quote it as hats?

This guide is great because it details the main skills needed to be a social media manager. Some are obvious, like community management and content curation, but being an expert social media manager is more. It’s lots of listening, and coaching and math. Yes, there’s lots of math. Other aspects of digital marketing as similar, whether it’s email, or websites, or SEM.

So until I can write up a proper digital marketing manager post, check this out.
