Our exhaustive recruiting process includes – but isn’t limited to – several video interviews and skills assessments to find skilled, servant-hearted candidates.
We specialize in finding and matching you with the right professional to best serve you.
Where are you coming up short?
Are you struggling to promptly respond to messages and engagements while also posting across all channels?
Are you daunted by learning best practices for all of your social channels? When was the last time you ran a competitive analysis?
Unsure of what, where and when to post, which articles to share, what to retweet, or how to schedule that video? Is your content optimized?
Social Media Manager or Virtual Assistant
Which one is right for me?
We probably know what you’re thinking. “Couldn’t a VA do all this for me?”
Well, kinda. A little. Some of it, but not all of it. Clear as mud, right? Fear not. To make it easy for you to determine if you need a Social Media Manager or a Virtual Assistant, we’ve put together a side-by-side comparison for both. That way, you can be sure you’re getting the right-sized support that meets your exact needs.
You can make the most of your social media presence – and we can help.
Once upon a time, social media was easy enough to manage on your own. A Tweet here, a follow there, and some icons in the footer of our websites and emails. Set-it-and-forget-it, right?
Because now, social media moves at the speed of life – and if your business is growing, it may be time to call in the cavalry.

Who can use a Social Media Manager?
- Small Businesses
- Church Leaders
- Sales Teams
- Marketing Teams
And you, probably!
Sure, you’re managing your social just fine. But what if it could be great?
Social media has in large part leveled the exposure playing field, and its opportunities are endless for businesses to increase brand awareness and new customer gains – all without paying-to-play like in the traditional advertising media days of yore. And all it takes is one quick call to get started.
Of course! You’ll be assigned a Client Success Consultant who will walk through onboarding with you and who is there as a coach and resource for your entire time here at BELAY.
Great question – and a very important one! For our engagement to be successful, we need to know where you are and where you want to go.
You should come armed with your Why – what you’re hoping to achieve on social media; your Who – your target audience and ideal customer; your What – your messaging and what distinguishes you from your competitors; and your Where – a list of social channels you currently have and, if applicable, those you’d like to have.
All our contractors sign a Confidentiality Agreement to protect you and your business. If you would like any additional contracts, then we can discuss that. We highly recommend strong passwords and using a password manager to keep your accounts secure.
We get it. Handing over the decision on who will work with you is a tough one. But what we also know after helping people just like you is that you don’t have time to devote to screening and setting up interviews. We have a proven system to match you to someone equipped to handle everything you need to accomplish.
Of course! We want your Social Media Manager to be an engaged member of your team!
I only need part of this social media service (i.e. account creation only). Is there an hourly rate for that?
No, we only offer a full-service solution and flat-rate pricing.
No, you will have one dedicated Social Media Manager that we match you with based on your needs, industry, personality and working style.
Your Client Success Consultant will be there to help. You’ll work together to find a new match and keep your downtime to a minimum. If there are any minor hiccups, we will address them and find a solution.
That will be between you and your Social Media Manager. If there are times you know are slower, then let your Social Media Manager know that would be a good time for time off. Commit to over-communicate with each other so work can be done ahead of time and productivity doesn’t lapse.
Your Social Media Manager can ebb and flow your hours throughout the month. We just shoot to come in at the contracted amount at the end of the month. If they go over, we simply bill the extra hours, but they do not roll over to the next month. We track and report on those during onboarding to make sure you are at a good amount of hours for the work needed.
What if you do such a great job of matching me that I want to bring my Social Media Manager onto my staff full-time?
It happens all the time! We know it’s a possibility that you’ll get to the place in your business where you want to expand your W-2 team, and we love nothing more than knowing we helped you find your first (or second or fifth) hire. Talk to your Client Success Consultant about the details.
Your Social Media Manager can manage your social channels, engage with your audience, tackle your schedule, and build a strong online presence to help you grow your business.
No, our Social Media Managers are available Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. While communication and availability will respect those hours, additional emergency management and monitoring will be considered and determined on a case-by-case basis with both your Social Media Manager and Client Success Consultant.
