Running a social media account may not be time consuming, but it takes focus. When you want to real interaction with a community, it pays to use people who are professional.

Therefore, even if it feels expensive to hire people to run your social media, the good ones are worth it.

So who is the best to hire to run your social media?

Find someone who understands marketing, not just social media.

Find someone who listens. Who takes the time to understand who you  sell to, and why they buy from you.

Find someone who understands deadlines and schedules.

Find someone who is very familiar with the social media platforms you’re planning to use.

Find someone who provides input to you on where you’re likely to find more of your desired people, if they can explain why they believe what they believe.

The above are but some of the steps to guide you on how to get the best social media hire. Using these criteria helps you make a better hire.
