Tweet, Retweet, Repeat: A Day In The Life Of A Social Media Manager [INFOGRAPHIC]

So you want to be a social media manager?

Hey, who doesn’t?

But it’s not all gravy (believe me). There’s so much to do: researching, tweeting, retweeting, scheduling, blogging, commenting, recording, uploading, Skype-ing, presenting, reviewing and signing up for all the latest social media sites (just in case you miss out), before checking everything you’ve done that day for reactions.

And then you get to do it all over again.

In and around this you need to fit in a few hours sleep and some lunch – with, of course, another social media manager.

Of course, to excel, you need to be thinking ‘out of the box’. You strive to be influential and to have purpose, whilst being attentive and adaptable. You’re probably a woman, with 1-4 years of experience, and you get to take home as much as $56,571 a year.

This infographic from Socialcast is tongue-in-cheek, but it’s also very close to the money.
