It finds short surveys based off your profile you create, and they can range from 15 to 300 points. When you sign up they give you 50 points immediately. I have used the site for just about a month and have earned a little over 1250 points which amounts to a $10 Amazon gift card. Most surveys take less than 15-20 minutes and can be done on your mobile device.”

Looking for a job as a social media manager?

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy here.

This week, we’re going to be talking about some ways to make more money online this holiday season. One of those ways is by working as a social media manager for other blogs or online businesses.

It’s just a given nowadays that businesses should have an online presence. However, so many small business owners are completely swamped with just trying to run their business and having to try to keep up with a Facebook Page and an Instagram or Pinterest account can feel overwhelming.

That’s where a social media manager can come in and not only take a huge load off their shoulders, but also help them build their business and increase their income through a strong social media presence.

What Does a Social Media Manager Do?

A social media manager is someone who oversees all (or some!) of a business or blogger’s social media accounts. This could include:

  • Posting regularly — Sharing about the business, sharing related articles and links, fostering engagement and community, posting inspirational quotes or funny memes, and/or encouraging interaction through comments.
  • Monitoring comments and messages — Regularly checking on comments and messages left and responding to them graciously and promptly.
  • Designing graphics — Possibly using Canva, PicMonkey, or an app to create graphics for social media (some businesses have a graphic designer they use for this).
  • Taking photos or videos — If you are a social media manager for a local business, part of your job, might be attending events that the business is at or is hosting and taking photos and videos to use on social media.
  • Researching ways to increase engagement — Watching trends and reading articles and listening to podcasts to learn what is working and not working for other companies and getting ideas of ways to experiment and improve.
  • Editing videos to post —  Possibly editing videos to include on the business’ social media platforms.

What Skills Do You Need?

If you love social media, are generally pretty organized, enjoy interacting and helping people via social media comments, are thorough and professional, can pay close attention to detail, and work well independently, then you are a great candidate for being a social media manager.

Most social media managers I know don’t have any special degrees, they’ve just been willing to put in the time and effort to learn and become proficient.

How Much Can You Make?

Honestly, the sky is pretty much the limit if you are working virtually as a social media manager. And best of all, you can usually charge a monthly rate for your services for companies, instead of an hourly rate.

This means, that as you learn tricks for streamlining and becoming really efficient and fast, you could fairly easily work up to making an average of $20-$25 per hour — and I know many social media managers who are making quite a bit more than this as they’ve honed their skills!

You can also usually work for multiple companies, since most social media manager positions would require no more than 2-4 hours per week per company.

So let’s say that you work for 5 different companies and work 2-4 hours per week for each company and you charge $300 per month per company. That means you would be working 10-20 hours per week and making $1500 per month.

That’s a pretty fantastic part-time income — and you get to work from home, you get to set your own hours, and you can work from anywhere!

How Do You Get Started?

If you are interested in becoming a Social Media Manager, I’ve got a fantastic resource for you to help you get started! I was so excited about this course when I discovered it and spent hours this weekend going through it to make sure I felt comfortable promoting it to you all.

And yes, this course lived up to my expectations — and then some!

It’s called Social Side Hustle and it walks you through everything you need to know to start your own Social Media Manager business.

In Social Side Hustle, you’ll learn:

  • Why there is such a need for social media managers and how you likely have the skills (or can learn the skills) to start this business
  • What kinds of services you can offer as a Social Media Manager — and what a client is typically going to expect you to do.
  • How to structure your pricing and not overcharge or undercharge
  • Creative and proven techniques for landing longterm clients — and how to prevent issues and stress in business relationships
  • Fantastic time-saving tips for being more efficient and effective in posting to social media so you can make your clients happy and earn more per hour
  • How to keep track of your responsibilities and stay organized as a business owner
  • And so much more (and yes, I know that lists like this usually say that, but there was just so much in this course that I couldn’t list it all off here!)

This course will give you everything you need to know to get your business up and running — and turning a profit! — very quickly! All you need are a computer and a willingness to learn!

Some of you might not know that was started at one of the lowest times in our lives.

My husband had lost his job and couldn’t find a new job. We had a toddler and a newborn. Our bank account was almost empty.

We had just recently moved to Kansas City so we only knew a few families and were struggling to find friends and community — especially since our small church had folded soon after we moved there.

We felt alone, scared, and pretty hopeless. But I remember thinking, “I can’t give up! There has to be some other option than just giving up!”

So I asked myself, “What do I know? What am I good at? What can I do?”

The time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.

I realized that I already knew about blogging since I had been blogging for two years. I also knew that I was good at saving money on groceries and that when I had blogged about money-saving tactics, people just ate it up. And I also knew it would be pretty simple to start a new blog about saving money on groceries.

So, out of that desperate place — and with these things in mind — was born!

I had no idea that it would soon turn into our family’s full-time income, would open up doors I could have never dreamed of, would allow us to pay cash for a house, would give us the opportunity to bless and inspire millions of people around the globe, would literally take us around the globe to South Africa where we would fall madly in love with the work there, would provide the ability for us to give generously, and would allow Jesse to come home full-time.

Do This Today…

I share this to encourage those of who might be feeling like you’re stuck and getting nowhere when it comes to getting your blog and online business off the ground. I’d encourage you to ask, “What can I do? What resources do I have available that I can tap into? What do I already know? What am I already good at?”

Instead of waiting for some big thing to change in your life, what’s one tiny thing you can start doing today to begin heading in the direction you want to go?

I want you to quit fantasizing about the amazing blog you’re going to build and I want you to roll up your sleeves today and make a plan. It doesn’t have to be exhaustive or incredibly detailed. But I don’t want you to go another day just wishing you could figure out how to start a blog.

The time to start is NOW. Even if it feels like you can’t do much; I want you to do something.

It’s time to stop dreaming and start doing.
