You might already know that a social media marketing agency is responsible for building online brand awareness.
But, who are the people behind an agency that gets the job done?
Let’s take a moment to talk about the key roles inside an agency and why these team members should play a critical role in your marketing strategy.
In today’s post, we’ll be about who does what at an agency.
Let’s jump right in!
Who Does What At An Agency: Key Roles Inside An Agency
1. Account Manager
This person is more or less the face of the agency as far as your business is concerned.
An account manager should be your point of contact at the agency, and he/she should have a very clear understanding of your marketplace and business.
The account manager will work very closely with the other team members within the agency to ensure that your marketing objectives are met.
2. New Business Director
This team member is responsible for all sales activities for the agency.
A successful new business director will have a clear plan of action for new business development, which includes
- generating leads,
- qualifying leads,
- presenting, and
- bringing on new accounts.
3. Social Media Specialist
Social media has become one of the most effective channels for businesses to promote themselves.
Unfortunately, not every business is skilled in social media.
And the ability to work with a social media specialist is frequently…
…the reason why businesses choose to outsource their social media marketing strategy to an agency.
A social media specialist will be responsible for the following:
- posting of content,
- reputation management,
- follower growth, and
- advertising for multiple social media accounts.
In addition, he/she knows the right types of content to use to engage your audience and when to share it.
A savvy social media specialist will have a strong understanding of social analytics and will regularly re-evaluate your strategy for optimal results.
4. Web Designer
Your website is your business’s face on the internet, and its website design should represent your brand well.
Understanding that your website will play a huge part in the success of your social media campaign…
…as most traffic is directed back to your website, agencies will keep a web designer in-house to facilitate any web design needs of a client.
5. Content Creator
The content creator will work closely with your account manager to identify the content marketing types that will be the most relevant to your audience.
This person is responsible for delivering relevant, high-quality content (images and copy) in a timely manner and within budget.
Many small business owners that choose to keep social media marketing in-house end up wearing all of these hats.
And this takes a considerable amount of time away from running their businesses.
If you can relate, consider outsourcing your social media marketing to an agency that is armed with a team of professionals…
…that specializes in helping businesses successfully grow their online presence.
