Social Media Channel Management
It is important to be present and active on social media, but it is even more important to do so efficiently and correctly, especially with a business account. This requires preparation and organisation, the ability to schedule and publish interesting content, the ability to manage channels with different objectives and the ability to keep updated on trends and mentions relevant to your brand or sector.
Allowing internal resources with little experience of on-line dynamics, community management and social care to manage your social media channels can be risky and lead to project failure. In order to achieve tangible results, you will need professional figures, including social media managers, community managers, digital strategists, graphic designers and video makers, who can be hired or outsourced, based on your needs and resources.
Social Media Managers and Community Managers
These are two key figures for the management of social media channels. A social media manager is responsible for the daily management of one or more brands or project accounts and has an understanding of all active channels (social media, web and off-line) and the project objectives and targets. This information is used to develop a social media strategy (link a Social media strategy), an editorial plan and create content for the relevant targets. A social media manager uses creativity, competences and strategy, and works with digital analysts, graphic designers and video makers to create posts that will engage the target.
The community manager, who works side by side with the social media manager, manages relations with users, answers their requests, and moderates discussions (social care) based on the governance model that is established at the outset of the project and is updated on an ongoing basis. In case of social media advertising, a social media strategist will plan viral or advertising campaigns on the required social networks.
