Virtual Social Media Assistant

These days, having a social media presence is almost required for any business. According to one study, 72% of all Americans use some form of social media, such as Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, TikTok, YouTube, LinkedIn, Instagram, and NextDoor. Worldwide, 4.8 billion people use social media to get their news, socialize, and more.

Given the popularity of social media, it is critical for most businesses to have an account on at least one platform. But for many entrepreneurs, it simply isn’t possible to keep up with social media on top of their regular job duties. A great cost-effective solution is to hire a social media virtual assistant to manage your business pages.

Tasks Assistant is committed to helping small and medium-sized companies grow and thrive. We offer highly skilled social media virtual assistants who can take on the burden of social media management for you, with rates starting at just $4.99 per hour. To learn more about how to hire a virtual assistant to run your social media, reach out to Tasks Assistant today. 

What Does a Social Media Virtual Assistant Do?

As a business owner, you probably understand the need to not only have social media accounts for your company, but to regularly update them and interact with people who engage with your page. At the same time, you likely don’t have the time, energy, or specialized skills necessary to manage your own social media. This is where a social media virtual assistant can help.

A social media virtual assistant can take on any and all tasks related to your company’s accounts, including:

  • Brainstorming posts that will generate engagement;
  • Scheduling posts at the optimal times;
  • Following internet trends to take advantage of potential marketing opportunities; 
  • Responding to comments, tweets, tags, and direct messages;
  • Creating targeted ad campaigns; 
  • Following up on leads generated by ad campaigns;
  • Drafting social media posts; 
  • Crafting posts and content for SEO; and
  • Writing blog posts and other content to be posted across your social media channels.

Perhaps most importantly, a virtual assistant can manage your social media in the right way. Just like any other type of business, social media management requires a particular skill set. By outsourcing your social media, you can ensure that you are posting and engaging with a purpose: to grow your business and increase profits.

An experienced social media virtual assistant won’t just post content or respond to DMs. They will do it in a way that is effective based on your target audience and your company’s goals. For example, if you want to reach a certain demographic, they can perform research to determine what types of content is most effective for that group and post it at a time when they are most likely to be online.

Larger corporations often have a dedicated social media manager – or even an entire team of employees who handle social media for them. Most small businesses cannot afford to hire a full-time employee to handle their social media, given that the media salary for a social media manager is $53,005 annually – plus benefits, taxes, and other expenses. In addition, many companies don’t actually need a full-time employee just to handle social media.

By contrast, a social media virtual assistant costs as little as $4.99 per hour. When you hire a virtual assistant, you are not creating an employee-employer relationship, which means that you won’t have to budget for payroll taxes, workers’ compensation insurance, and more. Because your virtual assistant isn’t a full-time employee, you will only have to pay them for the hours that they work each week.

Hiring a social media virtual assistant comes with another major benefit: you are freeing up your own time. When you aren’t saddled with tasks like monitoring your various social media platforms or coming up with ideas for posts, you will have more time to devote to actually running your company. In this way, hiring a virtual assistant to manage your social media is a smart business decision.
