The Rise and Rise of Social Media Careers – and what a social media career could look like for you

by | Nov 29, 2019 | Marketing

Fifteen, even ten years ago, who would have thought that a career in social media marketing would not only be feasible, but provide such a massive possibility for career growth? Ten years ago, job titles such as Social Media Manager, Digital Marketing Specialist and Social Media Analyst didn’t really exist.

The number of positions available in the social media field are multiplying rapidly according to Fortune Business Insights. Given the numerous advantages of utilizing social media marketing (broad reach, specific targeting, relative ease of use and low cost) over more traditional marketing forms, this is hardly surprising. Social Media College cites LinkedIn having a 1357% increase in social media positions listed since 2010!

So, if this is such a growth area – what could a career in social media potentially look like? Here’s what you need to know.

Common Jobs in Social Media

  • Digital Marketing Specialist
  • Brand Ambassador
  • Social Media Manager
  • Content Manager
  • Community Manager
  • Social Media Strategist
  • Brand Manager
  • Social Media Consultant
  • Creative Director

The list goes on…

Many of these roles offer the opportunity to work remotely at least some of the time, which provides further attraction.

Earning Capacity

Salaries in the Social Media Marketing field are obviously dependent upon various factors such as experience, position and the employer themselves. An average salary can range between $60,000 AUD through to $80,000 AUD, with far greater income potential for higher-level positions.

Melanie

“I engaged Michael Young from Transformed to assess me for the Australian Institute of Project Management Certified Practicing Project Manager. I wanted to be certified as I wanted to verify that the skills and knowledge was in line with industry best-practice. At first it seemed a bit daunting, however, Michael made the process very easy, providing templates for references and self-assessment as well as providing a list of the project management documents I would need to provide as evidence. The assessment interview was very relaxed and more like a conversation than an assessment, which brought out the best experiences to evidence my capabilities. Because of Michael’s current government security clearance, we were able to look at specific of particular projects, rather me than having to spend a heap of time sanitising documents. Since the assessment, I have been successful in gaining a promotion..”
