    How can you position yourself as the expert when there are so many 'experts' already?

    How can you position yourself as the expert when there are so many 'experts' already?

    These days there are so many 'experts' out there sharing their advice, strategies, hacks etc with regards to social media marketing.
    So how do you position yourself as a leader, someone who knows their stuff when you don't have thousands of followers, a blue tick or professionally designed graphics?
    In this episode, we dive into what we think social media managers should do if they want to be taken seriously, and how to deal with the imposter syndrome that can appear when there are so many experts out there.
    We also explain our 3P framework for creating content that'll not only help you show up as an expert but will lead to more sales with your audience.
    The Content Bank contains hundreds of post ideas for freelance social media managers and follows our 3P framework. Check it out here.

    The things we wish we could say to those annoying clients (but can't!)

    The things we wish we could say to those annoying clients (but can't!)

    We've all had those annoying questions from clients, haven't we?
    Can you make this go viral?
    I'm on a small business, Can you give me a discount?
    Why aren't we getting sales yet (when you've only just started working on the account)
    So we thought we'd share the responses we wish we could give to these kinds of clients. Think of this episode as a form of therapy for us and all you social media managers listening!
    We'd love to hear the worst things you've heard from clients (or prospective clients) so come and tell us in our Facebook community, The Social Media Managers Hub and let us know what you wish you could say! We'll be waiting with our best gifs in response!
