As an industry professional, social media marketing jobs are slowly becoming more and more necessary. Since there are very few training courses available to the general public, I can answer some of the common questions people have about social media marketing jobs.

Do you do more writing or strategy or data words for social media marketing jobs?
I say it’s a lot of all those for social media marketing jobs. I don’t really do a lot of writing like writing a lot of emails and then doing reports. I don’t really work on a lot of the strategy stuff. I helped put together the data to formulate it but that’s definitely something that someone who was higher level will do more than I do.
Do you think social media marketing jobs would be easy for someone to switch into?
I definitely think so because social media marketing jobs are basically a lot of sales, especially for influence or marketing just getting people to be on board to be a part of campaigns. It is kind of like selling a brand. It is like selling this to the influence or why it is a good campaign. At the end of the day, you are trying to drive purchases from a customer with your people skills. Social media marketing jobs are very demanding of how well you can communicate your campaigns to your customers and how you can drive sales. I feel like having those persuasion skills is really important for social media marketing jobs and I feel like that would be such an easy transition.
