  • What to charge as a social media assistant to an influencer?
    by /u/cosmic_cat17 on February 27, 2024 at 3:16 am

    I’m considering take a part time role as a social media assistant to an influencer. I’m meeting with her in a few days so not sure if she has a ballpark number in mind, but I’d like to know what to expect. Duties are inclusive of strategy and calendaring content, pitching brands, pitching partnerships, etc. I have nearly 10 years experience working agency side in social media, have experience in influencer marketing, but all from the agency side in partnership with brands. I make a good salary working in social media at an agency today (100K) but I am wanting to go full time freelancer. I have some brand clients and I’m comfortable with what I charge them ($100/hr). But I would love to get some experience working with influencers in social media and this seems like a good opportunity to start. I’m okay making less than my regular rate for the experience, but does anyone know what I might expect the hourly rate to be? This influencer has about 500K followers on IG and 1.5M on TikTok. Has anyone ever worked with someone in a similar capacity? No idea what to expect pay to be. submitted by /u/cosmic_cat17 [link] [comments]

  • Multiple Facebook pages
    by /u/NecessaryTask2055 on February 27, 2024 at 2:42 am

    I’m helping my company revamp their social media profiles. It makes sense for them to have LinkedIn, which is active and fine, and a Facebook page. The company has multiple branches and I’m not sure who did this but between 2008-2014 they had each branch (7) make a Facebook page. They each have basically no content and the goal is to remove them all and have 1 company Facebook page. The problem is I’ve reached out to Facebook and heard nothing back. I also tried to create the new page, but it won’t let me access it without sending them a photo of myself? I’m wondering if anyone has dealt with this and how they made it work? submitted by /u/NecessaryTask2055 [link] [comments]
