When you need a social media manager, think of me?
When you need someone to analyze, recommend, implement, monitor, or otherwise manage your internet presence, from being the voice of your Facebook page to steering tweets to evaluating whether the next best tool is a surefire way to outmaneuver your competition, I want to talk to you.
As I elaborate on LinkedIn:
I am looking for a full-time job as a social media manager.
With over a decade of professional experience in technology, journalism, and government, I have worked extensively in social media circles since 2004.
That was the year I blogged for the first time.
It was one of many steps beginning with my playing with computers and dialing into online bulletin boards in the early 1980s and eventually leading to self-teaching myself HTML during college and building my first website in 1996 — while working in tech support for an internet service provider. Remember dial-up internet service? I may have helped you connect!
I created my Facebook account in 2005 and joined Twitter by 2008. Over subsequent years, I worked as an online community manager, led workshops in multiple cities helping business and government managers understand the benefits of the web, and advised nonprofit organizations with case studies on implementing social media marketing.
I’ve been acknowledged for internet advocacy and online coalition building in publications including TechRepublic.com, Poynter, MSNBC, Fast Company, and Federal Computer Week.
I am an adjunct instructor of digital marketing courses at area colleges; and volunteer as President of the Boston chapter of Social Media Club. And, my blog at AriHerzog.com is currently visited by 15,000 people every month! Not bad for a site that’s never used Google AdWords or PPC campaigns.
This is why I am looking for a full-time job as a social media manager. I live and breathe the social web and I’m aching to be your outspoken brand advocate and spokesperson, managing your online communities and suggesting the latest tools to give you an edge over the competition. Maybe you have an opening for this position explicitly, or maybe it’s broader involving public affairs and communications.
