We’re looking for networkers – people who can make and keep valuable contacts using the various social media platforms. Is that you?
It’s not just the sheer number of ‘Likes’ or ‘Followers’ you can acquire, it’s also their level of interaction. Our clients will want you to build the foundations for a growing band of dedicated followers who are keen to hear the latest developments from their chosen author.
What we need are people who like other people and who are totally at home with Twitter, Facebook, RebelMouse, Pinterest, Digg, Tumblr etc. Obviously the sort of people whom you’ll need to attract will be dictated by the customer’s target market but we’ll discuss that with you beforehand along with giving you a thorough briefing of what exactly is required and what ideas/constraints apply.
If this describes you, why are you reading this instead of applying?!!! Seriously, though, please do read on!
The sort of things you might be expected to do on behalf of our customers include:
- Setting up ‘home’ pages
- Writing or putting up posts
- Sharing posts
- Generating followers
- Boosting the number of ‘likes’
- Maintaining social media sites
- Training up our customers to take over from you
FAQ’s for Social Media Gurus Wanted
Here are some specific FAQ’s for the Social Media Gurus Wanted Jobs section:
How long do I commit for?
You commit on a job by job basis.
What if I can’t or won’t do a particular job?
Just be honest at the outset and we’ll wish you well and find someone else (maybe you can recommend someone).
What do I get paid?
We prefer to pay on a specific job basis so all you’re agreeing to by signing up is to receive offers of work and to comply with our conditions once we’ve settled on a deal with you. We are generous but we do expect perfection in return. Does that sound fair?
Are there any limitations on who else I can work for?
None whatsoever (as long as they’re above the law!).
Who comes up with the ideas?
The customer will provide you with a:
- Detailed briefing about what they want and who it is to be aimed at
- Concise description of their books so that you can quickly gauge the nature of their writing
- List of any ideas they’ve come up with
You’ll then take this information and use it to create a growing following of potential book-buyers via the social media platforms you love working with.
What do you want from me by way of an application?
- Some brief background information about yourself
- A summary of your social media presence
- An indication of your areas of specialism
- Your fee structure
What happens after I apply?
We’ll assess your application, confirm to you either way whether you’ve been accepted onto our list of approved social media gurus or not and, if you have, get in touch when a suitable job arrives. At that point we’ll tell you what we’ll need from you, what the work entails and what our best offer of payment is. Then it’s for you to say ‘Yea’ or ‘Nay’.
