Thinking of Pursuing a Career?

Have you ever thought about pursuing a career in social media? Do you love social media and want to figure out how to get paid to do it? Well, if that’s so, here are some tips for strengthening your social media profile. 

If you want to be an expert in social media, it’s a good idea to zone in on one platform you’re interested in and are motivated to get further training. Love photography? Go with Instagram. When you’re deciding which platform to use, don’t just make a random decision, do some research! As you research, you can find out which social media platforms are the most popular and performing. You can also gather the data you find and discuss it so that you can build authority and show off that knowledge to clients or employers.

It’s also a good idea to develop a personal brand. This is an important thing to start with if you are just starting out. So, where do you start? Think about what types of things you like to blog about, the impressions that your photos offer to the world, even think about your favourite designs. Choose something about yourself personally and professionally that stands out. Something that you feel great about and represents you. Finding a personal brand is about sharing your own story, so have fun with it and remember that it will likely be a bit of a journey, so you don’t have to decide on everything at once.

A big thing to remember is not to overdo it. Don’t wear yourself thin trying to maintain ten various platforms and keep them consistent. It’s much better to have just one or two unique profiles and keeping them up-to-date and on-brand than to spend all your time scheduling out a million posts.

If you want to have a career in social media, you’ll need to learn the ins and outs of social media marketing. There are so many social media jobs out there and with a little grit and creativity, finding one is probably not as complicated as you think. The more fun and creative you are while still staying professional will make it something you love doing and not just a job.

  1. Great tips to keep in mind if you choose to work in the social media field. I agree that less is best as far as the number of platforms to use, otherwise, things could get out of control real fast.

  2. I agree, less is more when it comes to social media. There is so much information out there to learn about all the different platforms and find the one that works best for you or your place of work. Thanks for you post!

  3. Hi ISABELLAPALMIERI,

    I find that social one thing that people will need to keep in mind is the fact that social media is constantly changing and evolving into either new trends or new platforms. I started with Facebook and over the last 3 years, I had to add Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn to my expertise. One thing that is very important to understand is that it is not about us, but mostly about what our clients and followers want. Today they can all be on Facebook, but if tomorrow most of them decide to go on TikTok, well you better learn that platform quickly to keep up.

    Looking forward to your comments.
