A day in the life of a Social Media Guru

There’s a lot that goes into creating and managing social media and it’s not just Tweeting, playing on Facebook, watching YouTube videos or generally surfing the net.

If you are a business pondering over what your Social Media Manager does all day here follows the demanding 24/7 schedule:







06:30am to 12:30pm

Briefly review all notifications on the phone...from bed.
Check all mails received overnight (obviously gurus you receive mails from all over the world).
Start Tweeting and sharing valuable content.
Write a blog post.
Interact with the online community; answer questions and comments, verify that the overall general feedback and sentiment is positive.
Be ready to capture a great moment with your phone camera at any time; this will go on Instagram of course.

From 12:30pm to 07:00pm

A well deserved lunch, most likely with another expert, to discuss the latest online developments and buzz. Foursquare and Facebook Check-ins included.
Weekly presentation, or a Skype conference call, to the Management.
Write a blog post, as scheduled, for the client’s blog.
Prepare Facebook scheduled post and Tweet so there’s no need to wake up at night.
Meeting with the Social Media team to recap on what’s been achieved and if in line with objectives.

From 7:00pm to 06:30am

Check all stats and insights and compare them to the performance indicators previously set.
Prepare tomorrow’s video-seminar.
Test the latest social network and write a blog review.
Check mail for the last time.

Isn't it one of the best jobs in the world! ;)
