You’ve heard me say it many times before, and here it comes again: THERE IS SO MUCH WORK OUT THERE. Especially if you have social media savviness and can help clients:

  • Design graphics
  • Create and edit videos/reels
  • Write copy
  • Search for hashtags
  • Publish their content
  • Repurpose their content

If you want to test out the waters and learn how to help clients with social media marketing, then you’re in the right spot. Today, we’ll talk about how to become a social media virtual assistant.

But I get it, it’s intimidating to go all in as a social media manager and feel like you’re responsible for EVERYTHING when you’re new, so I suggest dipping your toes into the water as a social media assistant.

This episode will help you with 4 steps to building out your social media services and becoming a well-paying, in-demand social media manager.
