Social Media Jobs Oh My!

Need a job? Look no further!

In Wednesday’s issue AWAI’s new The Writer’s Life, I mentioned how I was seeing more and more social media jobs every week.

So after I emailed you, I sent our DirectResponseJobs.com Site Manager a quick note to see if she was seeing the same thing.

Her response cracked me up …

“Social media jobs? Are you kidding? THOSE are so easy to find! Watch how many I can find for you in five minutes …”

I’ve pasted the list she sent me below. IN FIVE MINUTES!

Although like I said earlier in the week, it makes a lot of sense why the demand is so high all of a sudden.

According to Forrester Research, companies will spend $935,000,000 on social media marketing this year.

And on Wednesday, Nick Usborne showed you just what kind of opportunity writers can expect, and how you can set yourself up to profit from it in 2011. (If you missed it you can access that article here.)

Now is the time to leverage social media expertise, whether you do so to add value to your own freelance business, as a means to increase traffic to your website, or to help your clients achieve their marketing goals. Or all three!

And on January 18th you can learn how you can take advantage and profit from social media during a free teleconference with noted online copywriter and experienced social media expert, Nick Usborne.

During this teleconference, he’ll explain everything you need to know about the opportunity of becoming a social media expert and how you can get started generating multiple streams of revenue for yourself and your clients.

It’s been a while since we’ve offered an opportunity as big as this one. So if you’ve been looking for an opportunity to generate more income for yourself, don’t miss out. Reserve your spot today.
