social media manager

1. Do I want leisure or work?

Working in the social web does not mean having fixed working hours. In the employment relationship, this may look different in parts, but one should consider that the customers and activities on the portals mainly take place in leisure time. This means they are asynchronous to the real one World.

So if you can't imagine giving up some of your free time, you have to consider whether social media is the right working environment. For many social media managers, however, this renunciation is not so serious because they mainly deal with the topics that they also deal with privately.

2. Where do I want to work?

This includes, among other things, the purchase of a high-performance laptop with a long service life. After a long struggle I decided on a MacBookPro. A mobile device should also be available.

Due to the current situation on the app market, it is also worthwhile to consider whether the current smartphone is suitable for the increased requirements. In addition to my Blackberry (too short battery time) I have now attached to an Iphone.
