How to Get Your First Job Using Social Media



Social media, a word loved by this generation and highly frowned upon by the elderly. Social media is considered as the time-wasting habit, that you get no benefit at the end of the day. Well, this concept is somehow right, a big part of the day is wasted by looking at memes and tagging your friends in posts. As much fun as this sounds, but at the end of the day when you look at the amount of time you have wasted, the depressing point hits.

Social media is not all about fun and games. People make thousands of dollars every day, using these sites. As the years are passing, businesses are shifting on the social media. You might be thinking that not every business is related to social media, but the thing is that every business need promotions and these days social media is one of the biggest platforms for delivering your point to others. You see all the small videos of 6 seconds usually before the actual content; those are adds doing promotions of specific brands. Same goes for the sponsored advertisements.

If you are trying to make money out of social media, here are some ideas that might help:

Choosing the platform

Survey every platform, and see which one is the most popular one in the specific field. The platform you choose must be the one used by your country fellows. If the platform you are choosing is already infamous, how are you going to convey your message to others? For example, in my country, Facebook and Instagram are the most popular social media platforms, and many people use it for the work purpose. You can ask anyone, and even if they are not using the social media, they will have to know how about it. But Tumblr is infamous here, most of the people have no idea that this platform exists. If a person is really into exploring things, they might make an account, but they usually use it less often.

Also, choose the platform, you are already using. So that you have a know the basic outline about it. If you are choosing a new platform, it will take you some time to get familiar. When you have finalized the decision about the platform, make an account on it and log in. Try to increase your social circle, the more followers you have, the better chances you have of getting the job. When you apply for a new job, they will look at your performance as a socialist. The number of views, comments, and likes, play an extremely significant role. It shows that how many people care about what you are saying.

Get More Followers

Ask your friends, your family and even people who are remotely related, to help you in promoting your profile. Constantly update your status, add stories, and be active. People will not care at first but soon they will become used to seeing your posts every hour, and they will start reacting. And eventually you will start gaining followers. If you go inactive for a week, they will completely forget about you. If you are using Tumblr, they have the option to post later; you can upload posts all at once and time them to be posted later. Or if you are on Facebook or Instagram, you can still schedule posts using third party tools like Buffer.



Whatever you are choosing to pursue, research well about it. Make sure that it is something that you will have a lot of content to post.  Increase your knowledge about the topic; you should not feel like an alien while making the posts. Once you have done all the research now, it’s time to make the posts. Make your strategy, adopt a unique style, which has never been used by anyone else.

Have confidence and be motivated and you will achieve your goal.
