Social media marketer for hire
Growtal connects you with social media marketers who can help you establish a presence, engage with followers, and acquire customers on social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat, and YouTube. The responsibility of a good social media marketer is to understand how to help you build and execute both paid and organic strategies on social media channels. On one hand, they should be able to act as paid social media advertisers, helping you launch and optimize revenue-generating ad campaigns.

Who should hire a social media marketer?
GrowTal places top social media marketing consultants at companies of all sizes and across many industries. Companies that hire social media marketers typically do so for a few reasons:
- They don’t have the time, budget, or desire to hire a full-time community manager or social media specialist.
- They have an immediate team or project need that requires a social media expert.
- They need someone who can take creative ideas and package them into polished content.
- They need regular access to an expert with deep knowledge and experience running point on strategy and execution.
Why hire a social media marketer through GrowTal?
Finding a qualified social media marketing consultant is not easy. Social media sites are constantly evolving—you need someone who is not only proficient but who stays up-to-date with real-time changes to algorithms and evolving best practices on each social media site you want to use for your business. You can waste a lot of time writing a job description, interviewing candidates, checking references, and onboarding your final pick only to find out that they didn’t actually have the knowledge or experience they said they had.
GrowTal eliminates these headaches and more by owning the entire process for you. The social media marketers who join our network are qualified on paper, but we don’t just take their word for it—we go the extra mile to ensure they can write, think, and act strategically to solve the challenges businesses like yours face on a daily basis.
How we source social media marketing consultants
We find talent through our own network.
Our team is well-connected in the marketing industry, and we’ve worked with and for a lot of talented people in past jobs. We regularly ask industry friends, former coworkers, and past employers to introduce us to the best social media marketers they’ve worked with.
This puts us in a unique position to quickly connect businesses in need with people we personally know and trust. The ease of our model also allows us to bring highly experienced professionals into our network who are working full-time jobs and might otherwise never think to take on contract work.
Getting access to these types of social experts is incredibly difficult without a partner like GrowTal.
Our process for pre-vetting social media marketers
We take every person we meet through a rigorous pre-vetting process before deciding whether or not to add them to our network and make them available to clients.
Here’s how the vetting process works when we’re evaluating social media marketers:
Reputation & Resume Evaluation
We evaluate the reputation, resume, and writing samples of the person being considered to better understand their experience and past performance.
Initial Gut Check Conversation
We perform an initial discovery call to hear more from the freelancer. We can usually tell within a few minutes if they will be a good fit for the type of work and quality we and our clients expect.
Deeper Experience-Based Interview
We take social media candidates through a dozen deeper-level questions to gauge their understanding of their role and to evaluate their problem-solving skills, communication abilities, and overall professionalism.
Final Evaluation by an Industry Expert
After the interview is complete, we gather our notes, meet as a team, and leave it up to one of our subject matter experts to decide if the candidate is a good fit for the GrowTal network.
