What to pay for managed social media?

by Ghoster 9 replies
Social media is a full-time job. What do professionals charge someone to offload this? What reports and updates can I expect?

Any info is appreciated!

    Gary Vaynerchucks company charges upwards of 10k a month and I've seen ppl on here that charge 200$ a month. So it's a super wide range of fees. I'd interview and ask questions like crazy to see you're hiring someone that really knows what they are doing (not just posting stupid memes everyday so say they are doing something), and make sure your brand is protected by hiring properly

      Thanks. I can see how it could be worth a pretty penny if handled correctly. I imagine the $10k guy is also doing reputation management, which I think goes hand-in-hand.

    Ya I think Gary is adding in creative work too - almost like you're hiring him as your digital ad agency as his team manages all social media but also sits around and thinks up the best possible posts each time.

    Super over the top, good for big clients like both nfl or Oreos lol.

    Hello Ghoster,

    If you want a Twitter and Facebook post scheduler you can use a free tool like Hotsuite. If you want to manage your twitter followers, to manage your followers and unfollowers you can use unfollowers. No need to pay, there are lot of FREE tools on web. Have a great day!

    You can't ask $150 or $200 per hour or $5,000 costs to a project if there isn't any feasible or positive ROI. I know there are business who spend weekly or monthly on PPC millions to achieve revenue so the balance has to be measurable.

    So once you are Google AdWords Certified you can claim bigger fees. I guess that's true and false. I can't understand why this..Some people know better to do social media and PPC than other who are licensed.

      It can vary. We do total social management. Post content, grow likes and follows, engage with followers who comment. Depending on how much of that varies on pricing. We do the basics of it all for $99 a month. But have different pricing options to help small businesses with smaller budgets, and larger businesses with bigger budgets. Just depends on the company and what they do for the price they offer.

    Gary Vaynerchuk works with big companies like coca cola etc. You can't compare that to an actual internet/socialmedia marketer. He can only make these kind of prices because of the industry he is in. 10k a month for Coca Cola is like $10 for a medium sizes business or not even that.

    I currently have a company that manages several of my social media accounts and they charge $99 per site/month. It's a pretty good deal. You can find quality out there for cheap, if you do some digging.
