I still get funny looks when I tell people that I get paid to send Tweets and Facebook updates… While there is obviously more to being a social media manager than just playing on Facebook, the truth is, my job is way more fun and wayyy more lucrative than the jobs the people giving me those funny looks have.
NOW being a social media manager is more official than ever and is seen as a viable and high paying business PROFESSION. Check out this video and you’ll see for yourself!
In case you missed any of those juicy statistics…
On average, social media managers make $ 50,000/yr. starting out. Pretty fair compensation for managing social media accounts right? I bet I won’t be getting as many of those funny looks anymore
If you fit the job description of: ”Someone who understands Facebook and Twitter and would enjoy tweeting, posting and engaging customers through social media” Then there is a big opportunity out there for you.
