Course Description

Great for students, stay-at-home moms , freelancers looking to increase their streams of income or anyone simply looking to make serious income as a social media manager for brands and businesses. 

It's plain and simple :  social media has grown larger than any other marketing platform in the world. Every serious business wants a piece of this marketing cake, but guess what ? A lot of business owners do not have the time or expertise to run their own social media marketing campaigns.

That is where YOU come in.

Do you :

A) already spend a considerable amount of time on social media ? (Remember : you DON'T get paid when you look at pictures of your friends new baby on Facebook - no matter how adorable they might be)

B) need a new income stream ? (Umm, and who doesn't ?)

C) have at least 10 hours/week to spend managing social media for businesses who will happily pay you to spend time on social media ?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, would you like to learn the ins and outs of starting and running your own social media management biz from someone who has done it and is making a monthly 4-figure income consistently ON THE SIDE ?

Then this course is for you.

I'm sharing all the tips and knowledge that have helped me so far as a part-time social media manager for local businesses. Please feel free to ask questions as you go through the course and I will be happy to answer them for you.

See you on the inside.

Section 2: Your Role As A Social Media Manager + Tools

What exactly does a social media manager do ? As a social media manager amongst other things you will be :

  • Creating content
  • Curating content
  • Scheduling posts 
  • Answering questions for your client/offering customer service
  • Cleaning up spam
  • Experimenting different strategies that will help your client get a better return on investment
  • Running ads for clients

I am not going to lie, creating content for clients can be difficult sometimes. But having the right tools is helpful.


Where to find the BEST content you can curate for clients.


Scheduling tools will make your life as a social media manager less stressful especially as your client base grows. In this video I share why I particularly LOVE Buffer and Hootsuite for my business.

Section 3: Getting Clients For Your Business

The hardest hurdle you'll cross in this buisness is getting your first client. You will have to do things out of your comfort zone but ONLY if they line up with your values as a business owner.


7 places you can go to get your first client.


You are 10 times more likely to get someone to pay you to manage their social media if you have PROOF. Here's how to get that proof. 


What to say when you chat with a prospective client for the first time.


A follow up call following the first call may not be necessary ALWAYS but I have found that it converts prospective clients to paying clients better.
