I’m a Social Media Expert. I say this not because I am in any way vain or conceited, but rather because my knowledge has spewed forth so freely, that people cannot help but worship my social media opinions. This title should come as no surprise, as I read and write about social media every day. I’ve been using some of the social media sites for a long time, so my wisdom comes from experience.
Here are some steps you can do to be a social media expert like me.
- Write about social media. Social media people love reading about social media, even when it’s making fun of them and they don’t realize it because they are skimming because they are overloaded with information. By writing about social media, you establish your authority.
- Dress sharply. We know there’s a uniform. Wear it. Show up in pictures with it. If you look official, people will buy into it.
- Get Listed. If you’re listed on Twitter by someone else as a Social Media Expert, then it’s really official. Solicit being listed, even though the vast majority of users don’t use lists or care about them, because every list you appear on makes you look that more awesome.
- Retweet Mashable. This seems too easy, but clients think it’s amazing. Your clients will think you find clever articles, and you’ll rake in the cash.
It’s not hard to be a social media expert. Make it a priority, and you can do it in a day.
