Let’s get started: 

What is a Social Media Manager?

 

Before we get into the templates, it’s important to first establish what a social media manager is and what they do. 

 

Social media managers are people who work either for individuals or for companies to establish a solid, positive online presence through the use of marketing strategies, exceptional content, regular posting, and data analysis. 

 

Some duties social media managers are responsible for include: 

 

  • Creating ads and determining ad budgets

  • Increasing engagement through targeting posts

  • Regular posting

  • Creating necessary contracts for online commerce

  • Analyzing post metrics and adjusting accordingly

  • Managing multiple social media accounts

  • Advising the company or department head (or private individual) of any changes they think are necessary)

  • Maintaining a professional social media presence

 

This list is not exhaustive, but it does represent some of the main duties that a social media manager is generally expected to perform.

#7: Privacy Policy Template

 

Finally, we have the privacy policy template. This one is not so much a want as it is a need if your goal is to protect yourself from legal repercussions. If you’re collecting emails or creating digital products, a privacy policy is required by most federal governments. We recommend picking one up now to protect yourself later!
