There is a stigma that the field of social media is centered on creating content and simply posting it. But, there are actually a lot of creative and technical moving parts behind the scenes. And, when you’re busy focusing on business, you need someone on your team that has the skills to write creative marketing content, research, engage with brand advocates (followers who like your product or service so much they’re eager to tell others about it), and then analyze content – differentiating between what’s working and what isn’t. If hiring a social media manager isn’t in your budget, hire an intern. Many colleges and universities offer social media/social media marketing programs.
