When I recently asked myself what I thought was the biggest challenge in onlinemarketing, I answered truthfully that it was the upcoming standardization of the professional image of social media managers. My conversation partner was surprised and had apparently expected a different result.
Basically, we have a professional image, which has neither a fixed framework nor such a content. Social media managers are not often referred to as egg-laying milks, because they are required to do just that.
The reality, however, looks different, as many are responsible for the support of their customers' Facebook impressions. Actually you have to say unfortunately, they are not social media at all - but Facebookmanager.
This example shows the need for inclusion and exclusion of tasks and activities to better distinguish between bloggers, Facebook and social media managers.
The standardization of a job description - why?
On the one hand, do not even understand Companywhat exactly they are looking for. While in advertising departments the separation between content and marketing (ie monitoring) is very clear, companies do not seem to take that step and often limit social media to being there.
It's all about more. The point is that there are experts who are familiar with their field of expertise. Social media is still the entirety of the technically supported communication and so it is time that specialists identify themselves as such and experts are recognizable as such.
Conclusion: A log way to go
All these statements should no longer seriously surprise anyone, and yet this article will again hit high waves. Why? Because many feel kicked when their employer mainly makes Facebook and thus other doors are not possible.
Dear Readers, do not worry: It's not about putting you in a worse position, just supporting your position so that your job gets easier and you can not be deducted for tasks that are not yours.
