Many of us would like to have the social media icon Status overnight! We need that top social media status to attract the larger clients.
Why does searching out social media clients feel like searching through the galaxy for the best no bake cookie recipe?
Social media enthusiasts that are looking to break into social media manager status often become discouraged even with the right training because of a lack of clients.
Creating a Social media portfolio sometimes seams like a daunting task especially for those just starting out.
I have compiled a few places that are sure to get you some clients. These clients may not get you that rich payout you have been looking for but they will get you noticed.
Why is being noticed so important?
- It builds notoriety
- Attracts high paying clients
- Tests your abilities to deliver on client satisfaction
If your anything like me you know where I am going with this…
Top places to get clients for new Social Media Managers
- Contact local non-profits and volunteer your services
- find small eateries in you town/city (ones you patronize)
- Flea markets/Farmers Markets
- Schools (team up with the student body presidency)
- Clubs and local chapters (looking to grow)
This list may seam obvious now and some may not pay out too much but by partnering up with them you will serve two very important points to your success in social media.
a) You will find out what you really feel passionate about promoting.
b) You will unleash creative ideas with each new completed project.
Making the Grade>
The main idea when you take on these types of projects is not to weave yourself into a position to offer social media
services to someone for free for life… It is to pick one common goal with whatever organization you will work with and working closely with them until that goal is met. You can even offer up consulting services on their next big project for a price.
Bottom line is that you did not run before you walked and you did not walk before you crawled.
Get yourself out there and prove to others you are that capable person to help mold and shift social media campaigns. When you are successful at this you will have a starting point for attracting those higher paying clients and will be on your way to being the social media icon you have dreamed of!
