“Sharing is caring” is a popular phrase in the social media industry; some use it from an outbound marketing perspective, but I on the other hand like to think of it as an endearing catchphrase that provides a great sense of solidarity amongst Community Managers alike as we share tips with one another. Managing a community is one thing, but trying to stay afloat with the latest and greatest of social trends is a full-time job in itself, which is why Sprout Social has created a guide community managers will be happy to read (and share)!
Sprout Social recently introduced their Community Manager Field Guide (#CMFieldGuide) on Twitter for community managers to share their tips ranging from social media to ways to unwind and avoid social media burnout. I was honored when Sprout Social asked me to help kick off their field guide, and the tips and insight from other community managers that followed made being a part of this series much more sweeter.
One of my favorite tips comes from Humara Kausar, the Community Manager for health and nutrition company GNC:
Whether you’re first starting out in community management or a seasoned veteran, the Community Manager Field Guide is a great resource to hang on to as it continues to evolve! And be sure to check out the other great tips from the other featured community managers!
