social media seriously and they embrace it wholeheartedly because they understand the benefits you clearly fall into the second category and if I get to work here I know you will fully support me in

let's move on to the next question what would you do within the first four weeks of starting work as our social media manager so don't sit there and think off the top of your head what you would do in the first few weeks of starting instead have a pre-prepared answer to this question to show the hiring manager that you are fully prepared and ready to get working here's my suggested answer I expect to be very busy within the first four weeks of starting the first and perhaps the most important thing I would do is sit down with you the senior managers to establish what it is you want me to achieve but also to find out your long term commercial goals this will give me a clear focus to work towards and it will also allow me to plan accordingly and create effective results driven campaigns I will then get to know everyone within the team and also find out as much as possible about the products and the services you offer and how I need to fit my campaigns around these I have already carried out some work prior to the interview to ascertain the social media channels I believe we should focus on and the types of campaign I would work on initially following that I would continually test tweak and optimize my campaigns to ensure they are meeting the predetermined objectives I like that answer because it shows you're ready to get working you know what you're gonna do within the first few weeks and you are also demonstrating to me that you can add immediate value to my business so the next perhaps toughest interview question for social media managers is explain the strategies you would use to generate leads so the only way you can really answer this difficult social media manager interview question is to provide the hiring manager or interviewer with a comprehensive in-depth response so don't just give them a short week answer go in detail about the strategies you would use to generate leads here is my suggested answer there are five different steps I would follow to generate targeted leads as part of my social media management strategy step one is to ensure the company profile is fully optimized including all relevant contact information the branding is on point contact information is accurate a link to our company bio and also call-to-action buttons are present step two would be to create easy to use professional and engaging landing pages now it's pointless spending time effort money on social media posts that fail at the landing page element the landing pages must be closely aligned to the post content easy to navigate and also compatible across all devices step three would be to create clickable content that goes to those landing pages now the truth is without compelling and engaging content we won't be able to collect quality leads there is also a fine balance to be achieved between posting clickable content and useful informative and personable information step 4 would be to use social ads however I would only start using social ads once I am convinced the platform is correct and I also know which posts have the most engagement I would take care of the budget and make sure it converts to achieve this I will ensure all relevant pixels are integrated on their landing pages and I would only use ads when there is an incentive for the potential customer this would include discount codes and competitions for example finally step 5 would be to measure the performance of the posts and refine and tweak them based on the data I'd collected via analytics so that shows you have a strategy in place you're talking about five different steps for generating leads which shows you have experience and know how to do it correctly sorry correctly so what I recommend you do now is go through to that page in the top right
