What is social media marketing?

Social media marketing is the promotion of products and services of a business or organisation across digital platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter and TikTok. There has been a growing demand for talent in this field due to the need of creative and analytical professionals being comfortable in creating content that's creative, impactful and revenue generating.

Many organisations and businesses benefit from social media marketing as on most occasions, they can potentially grow their revenue and audience without paying for advertising if they have an effective content strategy. However, to maximise audience reach and have an increase in revenue, companies and organisations are encouraged to have a budget set aside for digital advertising across social media platforms. 

What are the benefits of a career in social media marketing?

Social media marketing is a growing field so there is no shortage of jobs right now if you take a look at the current market. If you're naturally creative and consider yourself a digital native, you may benefit from a social media career.
