In a line of business that is still up and coming – and changing daily as a standard – it can be hard to describe exactly what it is I do on a daily basis. While the rest of the net understands the term “social media marketing services” and doesn’t bat an eye at the thought of a “social media marketing services pricing guide,” the electronically challenged, the youth challenged, and the non Internet geeks of the world are lost. While we’ve moved on to discuss the latest hashtag fashions, they’re still scratching their heads as to what’s going viral and what type of doctor is needed to treat it.

To help out all areas of audiences, the tech and non-tech alike, take a look at these unique descriptions of social media management or (SMM). If this doesn’t clear it up, we’ll include flashcards in next week’s post.

The best social media management practices are performed by those who use real services to write, schedule, and post companies’ online content. This means accessing different areas of the Internet that are available to help, while avoiding shady practices such as buying likes or friends, or responding to spam content.

In a nut shell: It’s a branch of online marketing that reaches out to appeal to new customers. SMM is done by writing and posting tweets or other social media content. This is usually done for business use, and is meant to access maximum user engagement and grow a brand’s outreach.

Sometimes you gotta work a little, so you can ball a lot.”

2. For the Technology Challenged

People have online profiles where they make virtual friends – who usually have a real-life counterpart. Companies can reach these profiles and offer sales, discounts, and deals to those who interact with them online.
