A social media marketer is an ever growing important figure in business today as the world is quickly going digital. Generally you will not see a business without a facebook page or website anymore, whereas ten years ago it would’ve been normal to have neither. This has left some businesses dragging behind with the need of someone with a proper skill set to manage their social media presence, hence the creation of a Social Media Marketer position. Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, and potentially a few other social media sites are the main places used to connect with a customer/potential customer base with ease. This has eliminated numerous “outdated” means of contact and such. The articles I have located cover some of the benefits of having a social media presence, the downfalls of not having this, and how it has grown and will continue to grow. I plan to cover all of these points with reference to my own work as a Social Media specialist at my current job.
