The Hectic Schedule of a Social Media Manager

So, you decided to be a Social Media Manager.  Seems like it’s the coolest job on the market.  What can be more fun than spending all of your work time chatting on Twitter and Facebook and checking out new videos on YouTube?  Especially when everybody admits the fact that you are busy working and not wasting your time.  On top of that you get paid for what you are doing!   It’s like a dream position for new marketing grads who spend hours on social media channels for their personal needs and wouldn’t mind to do the same for a company with additional compensation.

The problem is that it isn’t that easy.

It’s very easy to underestimate the role of a Social Media Manager.  The job can be very stressful and overwhelming just like any other job that’s out there.  The reality is that even if it’s so much fun to be active on your personal social media accounts that doesn’t mean it’s going to be as easy and fun to implement a social media strategy and be non-stop interactive for business purposes.  Below is a great infographic demonstrating the Hectic Schedule of a Social Media Manager.

See if you are ready to jump into a hectic social media world and let me know what you think!
