Social media has become a major part of the business world. Any business with an online presence makes use of social media to target potential customers or to promote their products and services. With around 500 million people on Instagram and 1.69 billion on Facebook alone, social media is a powerful tool that can assist businesses to reach a bigger audience and to develop their brands. Many businesses want to have a social media presence but may not have experienced staff for the job or don’t want to hire an in-house team specifically for this task. For example, social media in the IT industry may not be a priority at first and as a result, IT companies may have no experienced staff to run their social media channels. An effective solution for them is to hire a remote social media team. According to Mobilunity, social media is a dedicated role and, therefore, a committed remote team or company is required for the job. Today, increasingly more businesses make use of remote social media teams because of the many benefits it offers. This includes access to experienced social media professionals and affordability compared to hiring in-house.
