6 Profitable Social Media Jobs that Investors Should Try

Social media jobs are a very popular field, especially for technically talented people and influencers. The market is gradually developing, and there are plenty of opportunities for people with influence. It's a lucrative endeavor for people who have already built up their follower base and possess the skill set to produce quality content. However, with so many options, knowing which social media jobs are the most profitable can be hard.

Here are social media jobs and the opportunities they bring influencers and other technical talented people:

1. Brand consulting: Brand consulting services are a great way to get your foot in the door as an influencer by partnering with larger companies that will pay you to manage their accounts and provide insight into how they can make the most of their presence on social media.

Social media is still fairly new for some businesses, so they may be hesitant to jump in without someone on hand to guide them through the process. If you have experience managing social media accounts, you could offer your services and adopt a consulting role. Your large following or talent will warrant the trust of the employer. Once you've demonstrated that you know what you're doing, there's no reason why they couldn't ask you to manage their account on an ongoing basis until you either decide to move on or charge more for your services.

2. Content sharing: Content-sharing sites have exploded in popularity, with giant platforms like Facebook (News - Alert) and Instagram reaching billions of users per month. As a result, many companies have started to rely on content-sharing sites as a primary driver for traffic and revenue. In addition to a large number of users on these sites, there is also a great deal of potential for content creators. If you can create appealing or interesting posts that receive a lot of engagement from your audience, you can set yourself up for success as a content creator.

However, one problem that has emerged with content-sharing sites is how difficult it can be to manage multiple accounts. Most people who run popular pages need help curating their pages and ensuring they are posting at optimal times to maximize their reach and engagement across all their different accounts.

3. Strategy consulting: If you have a combination of an entrepreneurial mindset, analytical skills, and experience with social media marketing, you should consider entering into the strategy consulting business. Strategy consulting firms are increasingly seeing their revenue increase by applying the principles of social media to traditional marketing techniques. The most successful companies have already realized that social media is not a fad. It is here to stay and will be a powerful tool in your marketing arsenal.

4. Paid (News - Alert) Social Media Campaigns: Since most advertisers pay tons of money for marketing campaigns that can't be tracked very well, they are often willing to take a financial hit by paying talented people and influencers on similar platforms to run their campaigns. However, you need a lot of experience and know-how.

5. Instagram Influencers: If you've got a knack for photography and can take great pictures of products in unique situations, then you have what it takes to be an Instagram influencer. Most companies will pay you just for sharing pictures of their products at cool events or doing fun things with them.

6. Creative consultation and advice: Most people looking to generate income from social media focus on the technical side of things- leveraging their influence or attracting an audience. But for many social media jobs, you don't need technical knowledge at all. Instead, it's about identifying your strengths and figuring out how to use them in a new way. One example is creative consultation. Consulting is meant to help people trying to strategize and create their own content. A good example is when companies hire "influencers" like models or actors to post pictures on Instagram that they can use as promotional images on their websites and social media accounts. Another example is when entrepreneurs or business owners get advice on presenting their company's image on social media platforms, particularly if they're uncomfortable with social media themselves.

Key Takeaway

If you are an investor or want to earn extra money, you should try social media jobs. The social media tasks include: posting updates, promoting the product, and many more. You can work from home and set your own hours. The great thing about social media jobs is that they allow you to earn a decent income without an investment, start-up cost, or even a website.
