Social media has become a huge driver of sales for businesses. However, managing all your social media channels can be overwhelming. Reclaim your time with our professional social media virtual assistant services.
Your business is your life. Whether you built it from the ground up or are simply tasked with keeping it running from day to day, you’ve gone all in on ensuring its continuing success. You’re well aware that social media is a viable marketing channel, but the harder you try to come up with content that will engage your audience, the less time you have to run your business.
Social media management can easily feel like a full-time job—and that’s because it is. Hiring a social media manager can give you the space to run your business and still produce fresh and relevant content that will pique people’s interest and prompt them to click through to your website or show up onsite.
All things considered, it’s often more effective to outsource this work to a social media virtual assistant as opposed to hiring in-house.
Keeping current on the latest trends in digital marketing. Want to ride the wave of the next big viral sensation? Your Social Media Virtual Assistant can take care of that.

Updating strategies as the need arises. As your business continues to grow and change, so should your social media approach. A social media assistant will stay flexible and trim the sails so that you can enjoy ever-increasing sales.
Benefits of a Social Media Virtual Assistant
A social media assistant can take your social media management off your hands, leaving you to focus your time and energies on running your business.
But the good news doesn’t stop there.
Lower Cost Than a Full-Time Employee
Especially if you are a small to midsize business, you may have been put off hiring a social media manager due to concerns around your bottom line. But with a remote social media VA from My Mountain Mover, you don’t have to hire another full-time employee.
Instead, you can rely on the expertise of a fully trained offsite social media manager, reaping the rewards of a bustling social media following while still saving time and money in the process.
As Good at Their Job as You Are at Yours
When you first got into this line of work, you didn’t set out to be a social networking genius. And you don’t have to be one. You can leave all that to your new social media expert.
A social media marketing assistant not only understands social media best practices from the bottom up, but they also have the expertise and ingenuity needed to generate ideas and execute them quickly and efficiently.
There was a time when social media activity was just about staying in touch with family and friends. That time has come and gone. Social media is becoming a huge player in the marketing game, and it’s in your best interests to leverage this power to your advantage.
Social Media Boosts Sales
With over 4.4 billion people using social media worldwide, and 72% of all Americans active on at least one platform, a successful social media account can give you access to a huge sales pool.
In fact, 39% of senior marketers surveyed claimed that their highest ROI came through social media posts. And we’re not talking about paid social media ads. We’re talking about marketers seeing their highest ROI through organic social media content.
It’s just a fact: good social media marketing strengthens sales—but only when you have the time and capabilities to post regularly and strategically.
That’s where many small business owners stumble, because there’s always so much else to do. Learn how a virtual assistant can drastically increase productivity without the investment of a full-time employee.
Social Media Drives Growth
A smart social media strategy can also allow you to accomplish the following:
Raise brand recognition. You’re just one popular post away from hundreds, thousands, and even millions of new eyes on you and your brand.
Manage your reputation. Having a friendly and engaging social media presence invites people to feel comfortable entering your space, first virtually and then perhaps even physically. You can also address questions and concerns publicly, showing consumers that you are transparent.
Expand your network. When people online share your content, you’re introduced to their friends and friends-of-friends as well.
Reach new audiences. Remember how there are billions of people using social media worldwide? Here’s a quick and easy way to reach them in the midst of their daily lives.
All this with a relatively small investment of time and money. Just getting started in the first place may feel overwhelming.
Perhaps you already took the leap and got your business started on a social media platform. You opened various accounts in your company’s name online, inserted your logo or a picture of your store as the profile pic, and added a few local businesses as friends just to let people know you were there.
Maybe you even made a social media post or two. Then things got busy, daily operations consumed all your time, and your social media accounts stagnated.
Maybe you even tried delegating social media work to one of your managers or employees—with mixed results.
If you’re going to move from where you are to where you want to go, enjoying a lively and engaged audience, here are a few steps you’ll have to take:
Decide who will be in charge of social media for your business (you or someone else)
Determine which social media channels to focus on (Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, etc.)
Decide what to post about
Find the time to post regularly
Remember to cross-post your content across various platforms (but not always in the same formats, because different social media sites require different styles of content)
Interact with your followers’ comments and answer their questions
Analyze the results to see which posts are catching your audience’s interest
Lather, rinse, repeat. Who has the time and bandwidth for all this?
Fortunately, that’s where a social media virtual assistant from My Mountain Mover can come in.
