What is a Community Manager and why you need one

The online community manager role is a growing and developing profession. Online community managers may serve a variety of roles depending on the nature and purpose of their online community, which may or may not be part of a profit motivated enterprise. In the past community managers evolved from forum moderators and developers. They would enforce their community’s policy, social norms, and retain order. While there are some similar requirements and educational backgrounds that companies are seeking in community managers, the only general theme between them is that they are seeking brand evangelists. These brand evangelists will shout from rooftops (blogs), converse with friends and connections (social media), and occasionally toast to it as well (tweetups and meetups).

In order to be truly successful, and to adhere to social media manager responsibilities, a company should incorporate a community manager position in their social media training. This way, the company’s social media foundation can be established and maintained so that their presence can stay strong. Below are five reasons why your business should include a community manager position in their social media training efforts, and why social media manager training is incredibly important.

  1. Become One Voice – To avoid having your company’s voice sounding like it was pieced together, a community manager can create one unified message and voice to represent the company’s services and products. Having a streamlined voice can boost loyalty and good customer services skills.
  2. Manage A Community – As one of the most important aspects of social media training, the community manager can be a strong advocate for the company’s efforts. They will be able to spend time reaching out to different clients and potential viewers to help the growth of the company. This way, a strong social media presence can grow.
  3. Increase SEO – In the social media training process, a strong community manager will understand what it takes to boost SEO. They will be able to create unique content and be able to navigate through search engines and other social media platforms that will help the company’s productivity. For example, if a college offers a paralegal degree program, they may be able to write content that boosts this career field, possibly an article on success stories of being a paralegal.
  4. Build and Trail Campaigns – The community manager will have the proper time and dedication to develop campaigns from the ground up and will be able to see through the company’s social media endeavors. Additionally, having this position will make communication easier between different departments in the company in order to support various campaigns. Another great aspect of having a community manager is that this employee will have the proper social media training to monitor campaigns and shift their focus to improving the company’s efforts. They will be able to see what is working or what is not working and strive to improve the company’s online presence.
  5. Possess the Right Knowledge – An effective community manager will have the necessary skill sets and knowledge to understand the business world. As the social media voice of the company, the community manager can interact and engage in trending strategies.

With their focus on social media trends, a strong community manager can implement new techniques for boosting your company’s online reputation and progress. They will have the opportunity to spend the time researching best practices and constantly improving the company’s growth and development. Overall, hiring a community manager will take the weight off of many people, which will help cut back on stress and multitasking. Additionally, having a community manager will keep correspondence and the social media presence alive and consistent.

Kids have a lot of work to do – like developing who they are and discovering the world around them. So having the right things at home can make it a little easier. From the day you bring them home until they’re all grown up, their children’s furniture will help you turn your home into the best possible playground.

We look forward to this partnership and the unveiling of this children’s line that we know it will be fantastic just like the rest of their products. Follow the conversation on twitter using hashtag #IKEACataLOVE.
