It’s ok to ask for help and hire a social media manager or a team of social media managers to take on this task.

Sign 1: You Struggle with Content Creation

Content creation is the process of identifying a new topic you want to share with others, deciding which form you want the content to take, coming up with your strategy, and then actually producing it. This can be done daily, weekly, or monthly. I always suggest batching your content a few weeks at a time to help save time and guarantee that you have content scheduled on time. 

Coming up with fresh ideas or content that is useful to your ideal audience can be frustrating and time-consuming for business owners to do. So if you struggle with content creation, it’s time to get some help. 

Sign 2: You Don’t Have Time to Come Up with A Strategy

Having a social media strategy in place will ensure that your social media efforts are more fruitful and are working to support your broader business goals. Putting a strategy together includes outlining your business goals so that you can work backward to create posts that reinforce them. In addition, your social media manager can take time each month to develop a strategy to help grow your social.

Sign 3: Writing Just Isn’t Your Forte

You may not realize it, but social media and writing go hand in hand. Though having eye-catching graphics is super important, you also have to make sure you have killer captions. Writing can be challenging because you need to make sure you include helpful information, a hook, and a call to action, all while incorporating emojis to draw your reader’s eye. Even if you don’t need help with graphics creation, consider hiring help with creating your social media captions.

Sign 4: Engagement on Your Pages Is Low

Have low engagement on your social media pages? Don’t worry, it’s not your fault! There are a lot of factors that go into engagement, and it can be difficult to manage it all. Results are an important aspect of social media, and taking analytics (especially engagement analytics) is important for growth.

Engagement levels are considered dangerously low if they slip below 10 percent. At this point, something is wrong, despite your best efforts. Rather than struggling with this and stressing over it, it may be time to hand it over to a social media manager. Using a social media manager’s skills and proven strategies, they can boost engagement levels and achieve the results you’re aiming for.

Sign 5: You’re Not Enjoying It Anymore

If it’s not fun – then you need to shift your focus to something else. Social media managers not only know what they’re doing – they enjoy doing it. They love building an audience and engaging with them to promote your brand. They don’t mind doing the nitty-gritty tasks like running reports and brainstorming campaigns.

When you start to feel annoyed and bored with your social media, your audience will feel it. Don’t let your social media be impacted because of not wanting to create killer content. Instead, get the help you and your audience deserves.
