You're wrong. In another post, you wrote, "I did my research on Google about the average pay for content writer/copywriter." Since you know how to Google, maybe you should Google social media marketing (SSM)?

In SMM, what you do is develop an intimate knowledge of each platform, its demographics the most effective time of day for posting, the type of content its users respond to, the mix of promotional and non-promotional content that meets that platform's norms, etc.


Then, you analyze your client's market to determine which outlets they are most likely to frequent and when. You prioritize among those markets, so as to focus your efforts on a sector that's being missed or the most profitable sector or a short list of populations.


Then, you write and curate content that appeals to your client's target market AND fits the demographics and social norms of each particular site, and post it or schedule it to post at the times considered optimal for that demographic on that particular platform. While, of course, carefully maintaining a consistent brand image across platforms and with all of your client's other web and real-world branding.

Great summation here about SMM! You really get the point across about the complexity and organization it takes to successfully manage a client's social media strategy.

Why the name change, Faisal or your new name?

Why the collective "We" vs. the individual you purported to be in all 2 dozen of your threads?


@ Moderators - do you realize this person has been spamming all the forums for days now?

I also asked about the name change, and that post was one of those that got removed. 


I'm just wondering if it is against the rules to ask if someone is posting from two accounts, or if the poster went to the trouble of changing his name in the prescribed manner.
