Social Media Training

Looking for a social media Job? Perhaps you just want to just make money with social media.

I suppose you may have heard or seen people making money from social media campaigns. This is true. People make money representing people all day long. When you have legal trouble you call a lawyer. When you are sick you go to the doctor. When you need to launch and compose a social media strategy; you call a social media manager.

I searched long and hard for information that was both relevant and updated to match the changing market. It took me a little bit and Eureka!!! I found a solid source of social media insider information.

So you have been blessed with the gift of gab or perhaps you have an interest in communicating with people in innovative ways. This is what social media is all about. Today’s world feeds on the social media scene.

It’s hard not to see a headline news cast where they don’t mention So and So’s twitter feed or better yet; This YouTube video has gone Viral.  These bite sized news bits are actually changing the way we do commerce today. There is a great economic transition forming on the local, national and global level.

All the big box companies use social media to interact with and to get to know their consumers better. Microsoft, IBM and AMD are just a few of the juggernauts in big business that house social media pages on twitter. These big companies hire people with degrees to do the social media job but when you work for yourself… you create your own social media job!

I found out the way to get a piece of the action is to look in your own backyard so-to-speak. Social media has so many pathways and roadways that can make you dizzy just thinking about them. The fool proof way to make money in social media management is to get the proper training and invest your time.

I have invested in and stand behind the “Let’s get Social Social media training series. After going through Kate’s training I had the opportunity of meeting Kate in person at the BlogWorld 2010 Convention in Las Vegas.

If you were considering getting the proper training in social media I urge you to take a look at Kate’s training and start making money in social media today.

Kate breaks down how to go about managing any company’s campaign.  I really like her training style and I am sure you will too.

Social media clients don’t exist?

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.

So then…

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

  1. Contact local non-profits and volunteer your services
  2. find small eateries in you town/city (ones you patronize)
  3. Flea markets/Farmers Markets
  4. Schools (team up with the student body presidency)
  5. 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

Upward with social media clients

 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!
