So true > 5 hard truths about working in social media (via @michelledigital @antoniaharler @socialmouths)

Social media by itself doesn’t work!

I don’t work for a social media firm. I work for a PR consultancy, which has expanded into the digital sector. But the traditional stuff is still all there. It didn’t disappear and social is an addition to everything that’s been going on for years. My background isn’t in PR so you can imagine that it’s not always easy. I want and need to learn how PR works. From scratch. And that’s just it. Social media is never JUST social media. You’ll have to learn many things that you may not necessarily be interested to make it work for your company or clients.

The job will follow you home!

Social media is constant. And while you may know that, you really don’t until you work in social media. People don’t stop talking when you leave the office at 6. In fact, that’s usually when they start talking. You have to learn how to deal with time differences, constant monitoring and engaging. If you are anything like me you’ll have a tough time ignoring your beeping phone or the constant stream of Emails. You’ll keep thinking about strategies, updates, monitoring etc after you leave the office at night.

Social media equals a sh*t load of research!

Before you do anything remotely connected to social media, you’ll do a lot of reading. A lot of googling. A lot of combing through directories and statistics followed by a whole lot more reading. And once you are done with all the reading, you start to analyse what you just read which then, somewhere down the line, evolves into a strategy. Then eventually, you’ll put the strategy into practice which, again, is followed by a lot of research and analysis. Until you start over.

Working in social media isn’t just fun and games!

Social media is SOO much fun, you say? Well it is, until it isn’t. You have to think a lot. Especially about wording. The way you say things in your private life may not be right for your client/company. You’ll have to adapt your writing style. You way of thinking. And *actually* do some work. It’s not just about playing around on Facebook all day. It’s rather the complete opposite.

You need to stay on the ball!

Social media evolves. Constantly. You can’t afford to miss out on these developments because they may be good for your client. How do you do that? Through reading. As you can see, there’s a pattern.

I sat in a digital workshop last week thinking I knew a lot about what was going on in the digital space, and for the most part, I am informed and can get by, but boy was I surprised with how much is out there and how quickly everything is growing and changing.  In addition to all of the changes to be made to Facebook in the very near future, there are so many applications, social shopping sites, location-based programs, etc., that one can barely keep up.

I share this because you can either be overwhelmed by the social and digital world or you can look at this expansion as opportunity and embrace it.

It is VERY hard to find a job today.  I know this because you are all telling me this.  I constantly get e-mails about how there are no jobs and even limited internships out there, and it breaks my heart that so many of you talented and hungry aspiring publicists cannot find work.  But sitting in this course made it even clearer to me that the times, they are a changin’…

The traditional landscape of PR has changed dramatically.  It used to be about print and broadcast.  Then there were online editors and bloggers.  Now, there is social media, and we are expected to be marketers and master this new non-traditional way of reaching out to our consumer.  And that’s new for us as well.  We used to only be able to speak to press, but now we can connect directly with the customer.  It is a beautiful, yet terrifying, but ultimately incredible thing. 

What am I getting at?  In a nutshell, the jobs are in social media and will continue to be as more brands adopt social and digital media marketing strategies.  They will have to eventually if they haven’t already.  The world is social and mobile and it is moving really fast.  So, more and more companies will be in need of great Community Managers, Directors of Social Media, Digital Media Marketers, Social Media Strategists, etc.

These jobs and roles are not for everyone.  It takes a certain personality to get into social media and enjoy the immediacy and 24/7 nature of it.  But it is where the opportunities lie.  And when opportunity knocks, you can just stare through the peephole looking at it or you can answer the door.  Just think about it…

Tweet..tweet..there is money!

Everybody wants to know how to make money online. There are many different ways to make money online and one of them is to get paid for your Tweets on Twitter.

If you don’t know what a Tweet is or what Twitter is here’s a quick explanation. Twitter is a social network where people write a short message about anything they feel like talking about. The message is called a Tweet. You have a list of followers that can view your Tweet every time you post one. Also for everybody you follow you view there Tweets.

So your probably wondering how to make money online with Twitter. Well there are companies out there that will pay you for Tweeting for them. Some will pay you per click on the Tweets and some will pay you a certain price for your Tweet.

Here’s a example of getting paid per click. Let’s say you have a Twitter account with 1000 followers. You sign up to advertise a companies product and they will pay you for every click on that Tweet. Usually you get around.05 to.10 cents per click. Now that doesn’t seem like a lot but it only takes a few seconds to post your Tweet and it costs you nothing. Now with 1000 followers they will all see your Tweet and so will there followers. So that ad can potentially be seen by thousands of people and if they click your Tweet you get paid.

Now another way is to set your own price you want to get paid for your Tweet. What you do is set up a account at a company that offers this. Once you do you set the price you want to get paid and wait for companies to contact you to use your Twitter account. An example would be you have a Twitter account with 1000 followers. This usually gets you about $1 for your Tweet. As soon as someone contacts you you Tweet their offer and once it’s public you get paid.

So you see their are different ways to use your Twitter account to make money online. The best thing about these ways are that they are free and only take seconds to do.
