Handing over control of your social media accounts to somebody else is a daunting thing to do.
But if you’ve reached a point where you just can’t keep up with the demands of your social platforms, or know you should be doing more but don’t have the time (or knowledge), hiring help is the perfect solution.
Here are 6 reasons to hire a social media manager:
1) They’ll take away the pressure and stress
Imagine never having to worry about what to post on Instagram or Facebook again! Of knowing everything is taken care of and that you can relax and forget about it.
Whether your social media is currently booming and you can’t cope with the extra work or you feel totally overwhelmed at getting started, a social media manager can help.
They’ll take away the pressure and stress so that you can get on with the important job of running your therapy practice and spending time with your family.
2. They’ll find and connect with your ideal clients
Building a strong social audience is about more than collecting followers. It’s about collecting the right followers!
A social media manager will know how to find and build relationships with your ideal audience so that they’re more likely to turn into clients.
They’ll spend time engaging with your online community so that your followers grow to trust your brand and look out for your content.
3. They’ll work to a strategy
Creating social media without a strategy is like setting off on a long car journey without a destination in mind. What’s the point?
Social media is a time-consuming business, so you need to make sure that your time is spent wisely and your social accounts are working hard for you.
A social media manager will create a detailed strategy which not only outlines your goals for your platforms but sets out how to reach them.
4) They’ll keep up to date with platform changes
Keeping up with all the constant changes on social media can feel like a full-time job in itself!
And knowing whether you need to invest your time in jumping on the latest craze – hello TikTok – is another thing altogether.
It’s part of a social media manager’s job to keep track of the latest platform updates and decide which ones will work best for you.
5. They’ll try, test and tweak
A good social media manager will carefully monitor how your content performs and use this to your advantage.
They’ll figure out which content your audience enjoys and engages with and then they’ll tweak their strategy to ensure you give your fans more of what they want.
Over time, your engagement rate will increase and the algorithm will show your content to more people.
6) You’ll be ahead of your competition
Do you ever look at your competitors’ pages and worry that you’re falling behind?
When you hire a social media manager to run your accounts, you can forget about comparison scrolling and start feeling proud of your profile pages.
Your social media manager will get up to speed with your competitors’ tactics – and make sure yours are better!
It’s time to hire a social media manager if:
- Social media feels overwhelming
- You don’t know where to start
- Your posts don’t get any engagement
- You spend too much time on social media (and get nothing back)
- You worry that you’re doing it wrong
- You don’t know how to find your ideal clients or customers
- Your platforms are booming and you can’t keep up
- You want to get more strategic about your content
