Habits of a Successful Social Media Professional | socialexcerpts.com
What makes you different from other digital marketing professionals?
There are thousands of people, who work on the web marketing space. There are hundreds in your own city. How would you know if you are at all different or belong to the better group?
If you have these habits, you are better than the average.
You are proactive: You love to initiate tasks, no matter what. If it’s a meeting or a strategy session or a brainstorming hour, you love to step in first. This habit can prove super-beneficial for you, if you need to handle client directly. And this is the habit that would set you apart from the rest.
You prefer to have a clear vision: You always want a clear roadmap before taking up any task. In case of a new project, you cannot start it without knowing the goal, tools in hand and opportunities. You love to go with a plan. You cannot start or take a task, just because you are assigned to do it.
You believe in action: You are creative but you are also aware of the importance of meeting a deadline. You always believe in taking action without waiting for the perfect moment. This makes you fast, prompt and spontaneous in handling crisis as well.
You are a good listener: If you are into social media marketing, you already know that you really need to be a good listener. But not every social media professional can be one. Listening is a major quality for a social media person, since he needs to learn, test and respond to client’s and customers’ queries and offer them the best possible solution.
You identify opportunities fast: If you are a good social media professional, you see and identify opportunities everywhere, no matter if it’s your potential business or not. You always try to identify businesses that need better social media marketing and you always end up strategizing for it in your mind, even if it does not flourish into a business deal.
You always learn: For you, the learning curve should never ever be stagnant. You know that social media is a science and like other scientific studies, it develops its periphery everyday. For this reason, you love to read articles, follow industry experts and join different conversations on social networks. You are not afraid to learn from your juniors as well.
