YunoJuno are my recruitment saviours! I’ve worked with them for a few years now and they’ve helped with many resourcing challenges. The platform is really easy to use, it provides a wide range of freelancers to interact with and also means I’m only dealing with one vendor – which makes my internal financing hassle free!

There are several reasons why now might be the time to hire a social media freelancer. This includes:

Time — Setting up and monitoring social media campaigns requires a significant investment of your time. If you’re busy running your business, then you should consider bringing in some help.

Skills/knowledge — Most of us know how to post a picture of our dinner on Facebook. However, a social media professional will know the exact time of day for your lasagna to get the most shares. If you’re lucky, they may even be able to get Gordon Ramsey to re-share it.

Ideas —Success on social media is all about consistency, and if you’re posting regularly across multiple social platforms, then you may find yourself running short of ideas.

Reliability — Social media can be a bit of a juggling act and discovering that you’ve scheduled a post on the wrong day could spell disaster. A freelance social media expert can save you that headache.
