So, as a social media manager, you have to have experience to get experience. You can be experienced so that you can have more experience. You can get experience, you can be more experienced, so you can have experience. You can get experience, you can be more experienced. If you want to learn how to become a social media manager but you have no experience, social media management is a great option because you’re able to do this from anywhere that has an internet connection.

I got started with some local clients, and then it grew from there. I started having clients on the other side of the country or even in different countries. My social media career started when I began doing their social media on the side. It was something that I was good at – creating content, posting on platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, or whatever platform they wanted to be on. I knew how to do that.

Their IT guy saw what I was doing and asked if I would be interested in supporting one of his other clients with their social media. He asked if he could refer me. Well, from there, he referred me to all of his clients. I didn’t even realize at the time that social media was an awesome, lucrative, and flexible business. I found the opportunity I was looking for, and then the referrals came. From there, I knew that if I wanted to keep doing this, I needed to find more opportunities.

So, where I would suggest starting is: If you have a friend, family member, or a business connection that could use social media help, ask them if this is a service you could provide. If you’re just starting and you want to give them a discounted rate or something like that to get your feet wet, I would highly recommend that. However, one thing I want to caution you on is not giving it away for free or undervaluing your service. This is a mistake that I see a lot of beginner social media managers make. They undervalue themselves, and because of that, it’s hard to set boundaries in the future.

That’s certainly a mistake that I made in the past. I wanted all the opportunities, wanted to prove myself, and gain knowledge. But then, I got to a point where I was making over a hundred thousand dollars a month from social media management. When I wanted to ask for a raise or say no to extra work, they had a hard time understanding why. Make sure that whatever you do, even if you give a discounted rate, you make sure you’re setting your boundaries from the start. It’s easier to set boundaries from the beginning than to try to change behavior and expectations later on.

Start by reaching out to someone you know or ask for referrals if you have a friend or family member connected to business owners. Put yourself out there and say, ‘Hey, I offer this service and would love to help.’ If you’re just starting, it’s okay to offer a discounted rate to get started, but don’t undervalue your service.

Another common question you’ll get as a beginner social media manager is: ‘Can you show me some case studies or results?’ If you’re new and don’t have that, you can create a case study based on something you’ve learned or observed. Don’t lie, but show that you’ve studied and are prepared to implement strategies that can work.

As you’re growing in this business, personal and professional development will become key. Find a community, whether it’s a group or an online course, to help you develop your skills. Investing in yourself is crucial. It doesn’t always mean spending money. I started by learning from YouTube and gradually invested financially as I grew.

As you encounter roadblocks, seek out communities or mentors to learn from. It’s also a great way to find referrals. To grow your business, consider building a team. Look for others with complementary skills to support you. As you reach this point, price your services appropriately. Don’t undervalue yourself; find a balance that your clients take seriously.

Remember, growing your skills takes practice, referrals, and continuous learning. As you expand your skill set, you can offer more services and increase your rates. Always prioritize setting boundaries and valuing your expertise.
