Don’t Hire an Intern to Manage Your Social Media Presence
Social Media is a Marketing Tool: Why would you let an intern manage your brand?
Interns can and often, leave.
Do you want an intern taking your core values and best practices with them to their next real job?
The way we think about and use Social Media changes everyday and these posts were written over a year ago. That said, this is one of the few things that will remain constant for social media: Don’t hire an intern to handle your Social Media.
Social Media is a conversation, one that you as your business/brand, need to own.
Who better to tell your story – how you got started, why you’re so passionate about what you do, why people should trust you, why they should work with you etc. – than you?
Social Media is not as difficult to understand as you think it is.
If you already have an online presence, then chances are you already know how to use several Social Media tools.
In as little as a month, you can learn how to accomplish your online goals in about an hour a day.
The Social Media Agenda is for health coaches, direct marketing farms and artisanal food brands looking to increase their online visibility and connect their onground marketing efforts without breaking the bank.
I’ve spent much of the past 15 years talking to people online and in person about why they should volunteer, donate, participate, buy, or otherwise engage in X meaningful project I believe in.
I’ve also spent a lot of time getting to know and understand what really motivates people to consider a brand or cause. I’ve taken that information and compiled it into a cost-effective how-to for health coaches and food and ag professionals who don’t have a lot of time and money to spend marketing their business, but understand how vital it is to market their business.
