Here is a list of social media management skills you can learn and turn into profitable services for paying clients.
When it comes to creating content for social media, the ability to craft well-worded and high-converting captions is important. The good news is, most content on certain platforms follows a pretty simple formula. Once you learn the formula and start practicing, caption writing becomes easier! There are also tons of tools you can use to help you with this as well.
Social media strategy
One of the BEST services you can offer as a social media manager is to create high-converting content strategies for your clients. Your clients don’t want to pay you just to post content for them, they want you to post content that is going to get them their desired RESULTS! Understanding how social media marketing works and then creating a custom strategy for your client is what will keep them getting the results they want and allow them to keep paying you month after month for your services.
One of the hottest services right now is engagement. As a social media manager, this means that you engage with relevant accounts on your client’s profile which leads to more meaningful interactions and conversations on their profile. This can mean simply answering comments on their profile, all the way to sending DM’s to potential new leads. This is an amazing service that can really boost results when done right!
Photo and video editing
With the rise of TikTok and Reels, video editing has become a super in-demand service! Learning how to edit images as well as create engaging video edits is an incredible service to offer clients as a social media manager.
As a social media manager, you will most likely be sharing multiple posts for multiple clients per day. This means that you need to learn how to use a scheduling tool to properly plan out and schedule all of your client’s content so that you never miss a post! Apps like Later or Planoly are great for this!
