What is Freelance Social Media Management + Is it For Me?

Freelance social media managers are independent business owners who guide the social media presence of a brand, product, individual, or corporation. They do this through creating and curating content that speaks to an audience, growing a follower base, starting conversations online, driving website traffic, and measuring performance through metrics. Social media managers can choose to have several different smaller clients or just one or two large clients with steady ongoing work! From fashion or wellness to farming or travel, freelance social media managers are needed in every type of industry!

Sounds great, right?! But I’m sure you’re wondering if freelance social media management is for you! Here are a few questions to ask yourself:

  • Are you willing to put in the work to network and pitch clients?
  • Do you desire the freedom to set your own schedule and work from wherever you want?
  • Are you passionate about social media?
  • Do you love fostering community?
  • Do you enjoy curating content?
  • Are you adaptable and flexible?
  • Are you self-disciplined?
  • Do you long to be your own boss?

If you answered yes to all of the above, then you’re on the right path, love! And don’t worry if you don’t have a formal degree or previous work experience in social media management — That’s the beauty of freelance! If you have the skills, are willing to put in the work, and are passionate about social media, you can absolutely become a freelance social media manager! And don’t let anything or anyone get in your way or tell you otherwise 😉

Finding Freelance Social Media Management Jobs

Oftentimes, new freelance social media managers are so excited to start landing clients and get to workin’ that they work for anyone who is willing to pay them. However, this often leads to working on projects that you don’t believe in, clients who don’t align with your values, and creating sub-par work.

So, before you start searching for freelance social media management jobs, it’s so important that you take the time to evaluate your target market! Think about who your ideal clients are: What industry do they work in? What values do they have? Where is their business located? What value would social media add to their business?

When you’re just starting out as a freelance social media manager, the best way to do this is by having a social media portfolio that showcases your content writing skills, scheduling and organizational skills, community management and customer service skills, and engagement boosting skills! 

Think about starting a blog to showcase your social media expertise, building a website with a portfolio of your work and results, and gathering testimonials from people who know or have utilized your skills. To attract and land your ideal clients, you should showcase that you have the skills they are looking for!
