It can be tough to recognise and acknowledge the tell-tale signs of needing to hire a Social Media Management Partner. Yet, the signs are there and making the hire is essential not only for your business and team but for your sanity and productivity. After all, it is 2022, and social media presence is crucial.

Yes, this is an additional expense, but consider what is valuable to your business and its objectives. If any of these signs ring true for you, it is time to pause and think strategically.

7 signs that it is time to hire social media expertise

  1. You finally feel ready to invest more in advertising. What an exciting time in your business, and if done correctly, the ROI could be significant for business growth and brand awareness. A social media partner will ensure professional alignment to your brand corporate identity.
  2. If you are already stretched thin and cannot possibly fit another item into your day, you must consider hiring someone who can take your social media off your long list of to-dos.
  3. If you don’t have a graphic designer on hand, or at least someone who can use available apps to professionally represent your brand, outsource… there is nothing worse than seeing poorly designed posts.
  4. Does the variety of social media platforms overwhelm you? Are you able to keep up with trends? If you answered no to these questions… It’s a sign!
  5. If you can manage your social media but do not measure channel performance, there is a gap in your social media strategy. There are many tools available to help measure the performance of your content. Analytics is a valuable aspect of social media, especially with the constant algorithm changes.
  6. Consistency is gold in the social media universe, and it is only getting more valuable. Consistency across all of your chosen channels requires planning. A social media manager is the solution.
  7. Lastly, if you are not enjoying it anymore, it is time to hire someone who can capture your brand vision and deliver on relevant content creation with passion!

Recognising the gaps within your business is a sign of strength. If you going to do something, do it right with a specialist.
