Social media management isn’t just for the young crowd. Nowadays, everyone’s online, and knowing how to handle a company’s social media is a great way to land a work-from-home job. Think Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest – businesses big and small need savvy folks to connect with customers on these platforms, either as part of their team or as freelancers.

These social sites are key places for marketing. Customers and potential clients like to talk to businesses through social media – whether it’s in the comments, direct messages, or posts. If you take on this role, you’ll chat with customers and keep the company’s online presence fresh and engaging. Plus, working as a media manager from your own space can pay well – the average salary is about $64,845 per year according to ZipRecruiter.
