Staffing for Best-In-Class Social
Running effective social media marketing for any brand or company requires effective internal and external communication. Social media requires input from many different teams and disciplines inside an organization. How you structure and design that communication can make the difference in whether your social media presence is excellent or a flop.
There are many different designs for social media structure, mainly influenced by the nature and size of the brand. You can have the “One Man Show” where a single individual is tasked with maintaining all aspects of social. This design typically lends itself to having more of the social outsourced to another organization rather than keeping everything in-house. You can also create a large scale structure that has more resources and individuals contribute to social. This structure has a greater amount in-house, with whole teams devoted to various functions of social like community management, customer service, content creation, and media buying.
