Social Strategy

Hey all! Been doing a lot of unofficial strategy work in my official CM role and am now looking to step my game up and be a social/creative strategist. Have you done this transition+how?

Demonstrate how you can view the strategy and not just the tactics. That might mean pitching campaign ideas based on industry trends you’re noticing. I started as a CM and worked my way up to where I am now due in part to thinking bigger than what my role entailed

Find more hours in the day and use those in a creative/strategic manner. This isn’t snark — I was able to automate some tools to cut down around 10-15 hours of my tasks weekly. I also cleaned up some processes that further shaved some time. I used these time savings to work on strategic rationales, finding insights, and other research. If you can’t do something similar, volunteer/hand raise where you can to jump on more creative/strategic projects. Shadow people. Do research, and when you speak up, show the people in charge you have something to say. Additionally, look how you can contribute to ongoing social creative and social reporting. Working as close as you do to the community, you have a pulse on what fans of your brand are/are not saying. Finally, if you’ve been doing creative/strategic work for some time and they are downplaying promoting you and/or giving you a raise, start applying elsewhere. Make sure your resume and your talking points address what you’ve been doing rather than just your current title. Good luck.

Feel kind of silly saying this, but getting more concerned about covid-19. I’m 28 y/o, generally healthy but think I may have high blood pressure, which I’ve read raises risk. Anyone else feel similar

I don’t get why the entire world is freaking out about Covid19. (1) be cautious, (2) don’t visit elderly relatives, but the way I see it- everyone’s going to come into contact with it- it’s inevitable

One of my biggest takeaways from this whole situation is that the Wall Street Journal is a top, top source of daily news. Content, speed, minimal bias.

Anyone else still have the pinned post about the A wanting to WFH? Super irrelevant now (and tbh I find all pinned posts annoying and wish we could opt out...)?
