#5 Blog Manager
Maintaining a blog is a lot of work.
A blog manager typically takes the text someone wrote for their blog, formats it, finds an image, creates the various social images, schedules and then promotes the blog on all of the client’s social media platforms. They might even work to promote it within shared threads on facebook.
Blog Managers should also be familiar with:
- Basic Graphic Design
- Social Media Marketing
Software a blog manager should know:
- Yoast SEO plugin
- Social media schedulers: hootsuite, buffer, meet edgar, smarter queue
- Tailwind App
This may also relate and tie into Pinterest Management, because if someone has a blog and is not using Pinterest, they must not care about growing their business.
Blog Management could also turn into email marketing and/or ghostwriting.
Blog Managers save their clients lots and lots of time and make money doing so!
