As a social media manager, you’ll manage an organisation’s online presence by developing and implementing their social media strategy.
You’ll lead campaigns and projects across a range of social media channels, producing engaging content, analysing usage data, building client relationships and facilitating customer service.
Social media strategies often integrate both organic (free content, such as posts, photos, videos, blogs and memes) and paid (advertising) strategies.
Social media management can be a distinct role in larger organisations and is sometimes known as social media coordination. In small and medium-sized companies, the role may be combined with other marketing and communications responsibilities. In agencies, the term social media account manager is often used.
Job activities vary to a certain extent depending on, for example, the size of the company you work for. For example, in larger companies you may have more of a strategic role, whereas in smaller companies you may be more hands-on.
However, as a social media manager, you’ll typically need to:
design and deliver creative and engaging social media strategies
