My client is hiring a Social Media Virtual Assistant!

From my client: I am looking for someone that can support me in my business using social media primarily on Facebook and Instagram. I also create videos for YouTube so experience with this is a plus! You don’t have to be an expert but I do need someone that keeps up with best practices for the platforms mentioned, always working at how to improve the business goals and can show results you’ve had with other clients. I am looking to form a long-term working relationship with someone.

However, this is not for you if:

You require close supervision and frequent direction, I need someone that is motivated, completes assignments and anticipates needed work and initiates appropriate actions. Making a point for ongoing education is important as social media is always changing.
