Wondering if you should hire a Social Media or Pinterest Manager for your small business or blog?
In this post, I give you 3 simple ways to tell if it’s time to outsource your social media and Pinterest marketing efforts to someone who not only enjoys the work, has time for it, but will be dedicated to getting you where you need to be on each platform!
There comes a time in every entrepreneur or small business owner’s life when outsourcing tasks is not only a stress reliever but a necessity.
With everything vying for your attention, it can be hard to choose between which tasks you’d rather keep for yourself and which ones to hire out. If social media and Pinterest aren’t your strong suits or if you simply don’t have the time for them, you might want to consider outsourcing these areas first.
Why outsource in the first place? Because as an entrepreneur or small business owner, you need to focus on your business’s core and mission — not trying to keep up with the latest social media or Pinterest algorithm changes and trying to learn the ropes of the constant-changing platforms.
For many bloggers, entrepreneurs, and small business owners, their attention and time are best served working on what they started a business for in the first place — whether it’s by writing that 1500 word article to help a struggling new mom, by crafting the perfect crochet pattern for your Etsy shop, or by finding ways to better serve your clients and customers.

It’s Time to Hire a Social Media Or A Pinterest Manager When…
1. You Don’t Enjoy Managing Your Business’s Social Media or Pinterest Accounts
Social media and Pinterest can be hard eggs to crack, and while some people (like me!) thoroughly enjoy the challenge, you may not. And that’s perfectly okay!
Or even if you seem to be a rockstar at being your own social media or Pinterest manager, maybe you simply don’t enjoy the posting and pinning and other tasks that come along with managing and growing those accounts.
If you would rather be writing a new blog post, creating a new product, or editing a new video — whatever it is that you LOVE to do in your business — it is definitely a sign that you should hire a social media or a Pinterest manager (or both)!
2. You’re Not Seeing Results
Social media and Pinterest are absolute goldmines for growing your business or blog, but only when they are used right.
Between all the blog posts, podcasts, and ebooks promising the best tactics or tips, it can be hard to sift through the ones that are actually worth implementing and even harder to see the results that you want and expect.
If you are struggling to figure out how to get “seen in the feed” or have more click-throughs and saves on Pinterest, consider outsourcing these platforms to a knowledgable, results-driven social media and Pinterest manager.

3. You Don’t Have the Time
Between creating new products or writing a new blog post, managing the other important areas of your business, and your personal life, it can be hard to find the time to manage and grow your social media and Pinterest accounts.
Even if you are able to squeeze in a few minutes in the day to post to Facebook or Pin on Pinterest, do you have the time to actually sit down and schedule out a weeks worth of content (both yours and curator), write captions and descriptions that are SEO optimized, create graphics and images that convert into clicks, come up with a gameplan and strategy, or look at your account analytics and measure your success?
If your planner is already too full or if you felt overwhelmed just reading the previous questions, I’d say it is time to go ahead and invest in a social media and/or a Pinterest manager.
Before you know it, you can sit back and focus your time on the things in your business and your life that needs your attention the most.
