A day in the life of a Social Media Account Manager at Curtis Gabriel

Our busy and dynamic social media team currently run and manage online accounts for some of the largest and most famous brands in the country. For this week’s blog we spoke to Senior Account Manager, Jonny Shafto who has been with the team for just over a year to find out what a day at Curtis Gabriel is really like.

8:00 AM I arrive into the office bright and early to take temporary charge of the portable heater before Connor from the Design Team turns up and demands it back.

8:30 – 8:40 I welcome the rest of the crowd in to the office before offering – and naturally being politely turned down – on my daily offer of making super-milky cups of tea.

8:40 – 9:00 is my chance to respond to any overnight interactivity on my accounts and reply to any client communications and/or requests that have come in.

9:00 – 12:00 is when I complete my allocated daily live work for my clients. This includes interacting with social influencers, sharing relevant sourced content, and listening for potential leads. At Curtis Gabriel we recognise the importance of live work to make sure all our clients get the best, most up to date content out there whilst it is still relevant, things can move quickly in the world of social media and it’s our job to stay ahead! Live work also helps us to increase engagement on our client’s pages.

12:00 – 13:00 means it’s time to take an hour’s lunch break with my right-hand-man and fellow Account Manager Matt Rose, more than likely discussing the previous night’s football action, exchanging awful puns, and making plans for the upcoming weekend.

13:00 – 13:30 Time to return to the office to check and respond to any lunchtime interactivity and client communications or requests that have come in.

13:30 – 16:30 I spend the next three hours scheduling content for my chosen clients for that day. We find scheduling a core level of content ensures that we get a good range of interesting and engaging content out there which can then be supplemented through our daily live work. This also helps me to focus on any special requests and key sales messages that I need to share for my clients.

16:30 – 17:00 A final chance to check and respond to any afternoon interactivity and client requests.

17:00 – 17:30 The last job of the day is proof read all of my scheduled posts for the day before logging off and heading home.
