Engineering the next generation of social media managers.

Facebook has gone from being a teen distraction to a business powerhouse

Short Story.

Me: “Hello” *Insert Name*”

Him: “Hi Femi, How are you?”

Me: “I am amazing. I am looking to hire a social media manager. Know anyone?”

Him: “What is your budget?”

Me: *Insert amount*

Him: “If I would be honest with you, I am also looking to hire right now. If I found him/her before you, I would hire him/her and pay double.”

The above is a conversation that actually took place between myself and a friend (one of my seniors in the industry). I had similar conversations with other CEOs and they had the same feedback: because entry barrier is low, the marketplace is saturated with lots of people who claim to know a thing or two about social media, but there are only very few people who really know their onions. I can hear you say; “but I could learn this online”. True. There are tons of content on social media stuff online but;

  1. They lack context. A lot of the things you learn online are based against the foreground of foreign countries. In Nigeria, most of them dont work. We need lessons within a Nigerian context.
  2. Some of them (if not most), are one topic out of many. I want to teach you the whole nine yards.

Why should I teach you though? Excellent question.

  1. I have been a social media freelancer, had a Job as a social media manager, been a social media consultant and now run my own agency. I have gone full circle.
  2. I have worked on over 200 projects over the last 3 years across several sectors ranging from banking, stockbroking, cinemas, events, radio/ youtube shows, human resources, non-profits, movies, schools, FMCGs all the way to mining and solid minerals. So yeah, I have lots of experience.

Here is what one of my students had to say:

Femi is an outstanding instructor who understands social media with confidence. He did a great job in using practical examples to illustrate a point and using easy to understand terminologies to explain the concept of social media.
