Social Media Strategist or Help Desk?


Jeremiah Owyang published an insightful report on the career path of a social media strategist. He found that after some early success, the social media strategist faces an onslaught of problems that can cause the person to descend into a reactive help-desk list of tasks. He advocates that effective strategists develop a proactive program that gets ahead of the demands and allows them to operate from a strategic planning position.

Owyang identifies several key problems that map closely to the problems I've faced as a marketing director and community manager implementing social media programs. The issues he identifies are the following:
  • Resistance from internal culture
  • Measuring ROI
  • Lack of resources
  • Ever changing technology space
  • Resentment and envy of the role
  • A looming increase in business demands
Of the social media strategists he interviewed 41 percent report to the marketing department. Most of these programs lacked a formalized program with long-term direction. Only 23 percent have the required maturity to overcome these problems.

He recommends these 10 qualities when looking to hire a social media strategist:
  • Hire a program manager rather than a social media "hot shot"
  • Seek candidates with a track record of early technology adoption
  • Scrutinize how they have used social media
  • Seek backgrounds that demonstrate ability to manage dotted-line managers
  • Look for corporate entrepreneur
  • Ensure cultural fit, they will tackle change management
  • Find a natural born connector
  • Celebrate risks, clear obstacles
  • Enable them to connect to peers and grow careers
  • Protect investment by providing new challenges, compensate well
The full report from Jeremiah Owyang at Altimeter Group is found below.

One of the options that students can take advantage of to pay for their tuition fees are student loans without cosigner. Sadly, there are so many students out there without the relevant information on the best way to apply for these loans. As such, most of the applications for student loans without cosigners end up not being approved which mean more problems in financing their education. Cash Advance
