Facebook & Other Social Platform Community Manager
Where ever you are communicating with your clients online, it needs to be a two-way conversation. In conjunction with my other online work, I often also serves as online community manager, at a minimum to jumpstart conversation and engagement. This includes not only identifying, creating and posting content (text, links, images, call to actions) but also engaging in direct conversation with community members to both help achieve channel and general business goals but to protect the client’s online brand.
In the past, this has included handling negative comments posted online and sent in via private message. Always, Robin communicates with her client regarding what’s happening and the related conversations since most of the time these online conversations relate to issues that initially began as an in person, in store or other online interaction.
