Getting a Social Media Marketing Job

After deciding on what you want to do and garnering the necessary skills, it’s time to start looking for an exciting new job.

Here are the steps to follow in finding that coveted social media marketing job your heart desires:

1. Update Your Social Media Profiles

Most companies will check out your social media profiles before interviewing you (even if they don’t ask for it).

So, make sure you showcase the best version of yourself and clean up any content that might be seen as unprofessional – or offensive. It’s also a good idea to create a custom background image for your profiles to stand out from the crowd.

2. Be Proficient on All the Major Social Media Channels (Particularly, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter)

Your social media presence is your calling card in the industry. It’s, therefore, recommended that you become proficient on all the major social media platforms – particularly LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook.

Also, keep in mind that each platform has different social norms and rules or basic etiquette that you’re required to follow.

3. Be Active!

Being active on social media is the best way to demonstrate your industry knowledge and establish your thought leadership.

You, however, don’t want to overdo it. Post consistently and make sure that your social media strategy aligns with your career goals – be it gaining experience or finding a job.

4. Network

Networking in the social media industry can help you in two ways:

  1. It allows you to build relationships with other professionals who could potentially become future clients or employers.
  2. It allows you to show off your industry knowledge and develop a valuable skillset. A great way to network with people in this industry is by attending conferences, events, and meetups.

5. Be Prepared for Any Questions

Many companies require that applicants answer a few interview questions when applying for a job.

Common interview questions might be:

“What is social media marketing?”

“How would you go about building a loyal following on Twitter?”

If you’re going for an in-person interview, it’s best to do some research beforehand – so you don’t fumble when the interviewer asks these questions.

6. Show Off Your Expertise

We’ve already established that social media is a competitive industry. With thousands of people entering the field every year, it’s only natural that you would want to stand out from the crowd.

7. Learn the Lingo

Are you already an expert in another industry?

If so, it can be a great advantage to have industry-specific knowledge. But you might need to brush up on the terminology and jargon specific to social media marketing.

Learning some of these terminologies will help you understand what’s going on in the industry and go a long way towards impressing your new employer.

8. Do Your Research

Nowadays, social media plays an integral role in the success of most companies. Most businesses have a strong presence on at least one social media platform, which they use to engage with consumers and promote their brands.

While most companies may not require a degree in social media, they’ll most likely be looking for individuals that understand the industry – such as best practices and trends.

Aside from gaining experience or applying directly to companies, another way to learn more about the industry is by reading articles on social media channels. Not only will this help you to gain knowledge and develop your skills, but it can also give you the chance to test out your writing.

9. Be Confident

Employers are looking for people with confidence and enthusiasm – so don’t be afraid to promote yourself. Social media marketing is an industry that grows every day, with thousands of people joining it every year. It’s a competitive job market, quite strenuous for new entrants trying to find work.

10. Keep learning

As we’ve established, social media marketing is an industry that’s evolving rapidly.

With so many new developments, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed and under-qualified.

The best way to handle this situation is by staying on top of industry trends – while also learning about other relevant topics — such as online customer engagement, social CRM, and content marketing.

The Future Looks Bright for Social Media Marketers

The future looks bright for social media marketers. As consumer online behaviour evolves, companies will continue looking for individuals who can implement and manage their social media strategies.

You can give yourself a leg up by increasing your knowledge and experience in the industry. That could be done by taking social media marketing courses or self-learning through articles and case studies.

Along with this, you should also consider networking and showcasing your skills by becoming a content writer for a company or a volunteer moderator for an organization.

As long as you’re willing to put in the effort and dedication needed, social media marketing is an industry that offers rewarding opportunities – regardless of your experience level.

Social Media Marketing Career Trends to Watch in 2022

The social media industry is booming, with thousands of people entering it each year.

But since it’s highly competitive, so you’ll need to put in the effort and research required to get ahead.

By staying abreast of trends and increasing your knowledge of related fields, you’ll be able to develop the skills and experience needed to find work and land the job you want.

So, what should we expect from social media users and advertisers from 2022 and beyond?

Social Media Marketing Requirements

While social media itself will continue to grow, some trends can indicate what skills marketers should have.

For example, due to the introduction of chatbots – AI-driven digital assistants designed to make customer service more interactive, companies will likely invest heavily in virtual assistants.

Social network integration is also another trend – with platforms like Instagram and Snapchat becoming more like mini-websites.

By having the skills to manage social networks, you’ll be able to make use of these opportunities.

Influencer Marketing Requirements

According to Hootsuite’s 2018 survey of over 1,000 marketers, 44% saw influencer marketing as the most effective form of content for their brand.

As a result, it’ll be important for marketers to have the required skills to work with influencers and manage this type of partnership.

Personalized Online Experiences

With the popularity of chatbots and AI-driven assistants, companies will find new ways to personalize user experience.

To keep up with these changes, marketers should invest in learning about other digital trends – such as virtual reality, augmented reality, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and the internet of things (IoT).

Social Media Marketing Employment Trends (2022-2025)

According to a 2021 Forbes report, social media will continue being popular, with many companies hiring skilled marketers.

By skilled, we mean having experience in the following areas:

  • Social selling skills
  • Influencer marketing
  • Marketing automation expertise

In addition, it’ll also help to know about content marketing and paid advertising.

Given the increase in competition, having a marketing degree will also be beneficial, along with experience in related fields like customer service and sales.

Given how quickly trends can change, you’ll need to be flexible and willing to learn new skills such as UX (user experience) design, vital for all types of businesses due to its ability to improve conversion rates.

Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) Skills 

AI has become a significant area of focus for social media marketers, with companies looking for marketers who have skills related to machine learning.

At present, marketers are using AI technology to automate tasks that only humans would do. That not only improves efficiency but also minimizes the chance of human error.

With its ability to streamline processes, provide real-time insights, and improve customer experience, you can see why social media marketers view it as vital to their workflow.

In addition, this trend is expected to continue into 2022 – with AI impacting almost every industry in some way or another. The number of companies looking for AI-related skills on LinkedIn has also doubled over the past two years.

How to Gain Social Media Marketing Experience

Now that we’ve looked at how social media marketing is likely to change let’s look at how you can start working in this industry.

So, what sort of experience do companies expect from people looking for work in social media marketing?

LinkedIn found that 88% of employers consider it vital for marketers to have social media skills, with 60% preferring to hire marketers with at least two years of experience.

That means it’s in your best interest to find a project that allows you to gain experience in this area.

If you don’t have any prior experience, try using Fiverr or Upwork to find short-term projects to help you build relevant skills. That could be anything, from writing blog posts for small businesses and promoting products using social media ads to creating infographics.

Here are some additional tips to help you develop the skills you’ll need to secure a job in the social media marketing field:

1. Get the Education You Need

You don’t need a formal education to jumpstart a social media marketing career, but a degree or any other certification can be extremely helpful.

A degree program will offer you the skills and knowledge you’ll need to work in the industry while giving you practical experience through internships.  That can help you secure a job – especially if your internship is with a well-known company.

As more students choose to study online, you can choose from a range of flexible certificate, diploma, and degree programs. Many of these programs are taught by industry experts and allow you to study at your own pace.

2. Start Volunteering or Freelancing

Social media is all about building connections, so why not start now? Many social media marketers started by contributing to forums, writing for blogs, or starting their own blog.  The experience you gain will help you build your skillset.

One of the best ways to gain experience in social media marketing is through volunteering or freelancing. Look for opportunities that allow you to learn new skills and gain valuable industry experience.

That could be anything from running a live Twitter chat to copywriting for an animal shelter’s blog or taking over a small business’s social media.

3. Get Strategic

Social media marketing isn’t just about slapping together a few random posts or ads, so it helps to have a strategy in place.  That means finding the perfect influencer for your brand, establishing your voice, and gauging how much social media you should be using.

To become well-known in this space, you’ll need to share that strategy with brands or companies you work with. You have to prove that you have a deep understanding of social media and its role in the online marketing world.

During interviews, you want to demonstrate your strategic knowledge, like using in-field organic posts to drive traffic and sales.

4. Build a Portfolio

In addition to gaining experience, you should also try building a portfolio of your work.  You can share it on social media and with potential employers.

Don’t just send out a link to your LinkedIn profile – create an easy-to-share digital portfolio that features all the best work you’ve done in the past.  That could be anything from a simple PDF document to a detailed case study.

Adding samples of your work can help you stand out from other applicants and show that you value your skills.

5. Look for Small Businesses that Need Help with social media But Have a Small Budget

While big brands might have the budget to hire a dedicated social media manager, many small businesses can’t. That means you could find a lot of work by looking for opportunities with these brands.

One way to get started is by reaching out to local businesses in your area.  If you want to work from home, start using sites like Craigslist and Gumtree to find small businesses in your area that need help with their social media.

You could also look for online jobs by using sites like Upwork or Freelancer.

6. Get Certified

In addition to getting an education and gaining experience, you should also consider getting certified in social media marketing.  That demonstrates your commitment to learning and could help you get ahead when applying for jobs.

Certification programs include courses in social media marketing and other relevant topics, such as how to use analytics or market a business on Facebook. Some certification programs also add the opportunity to network and build relationships with professionals in the industry.
