  1. Thank you so much for the lesson, I learned a lot! I really feel your willingness to share knowledge to others

  2. I would love to be able to talk to you directly. I kinda just landed in doing what I'm doing but I need a little more help and guidance. Please and thank you

  3. I have a query. What was the time of your first job? I mean was it a 9-5 job and then you also worked on side hustles? How to find time and manage that? I work a 9-5 job and even though I try I can't work on side hustles. Although I have to spend solid 4 hours in transportation could be a fact but still.

  4. I am interested in social media marketing. From which books I can learn about this and will be helpful for me

  5. I am a student studying Integrated Marketing and Communications. I want to be a social media marketer and preferably be a freelancer. This is such a great and informative video! Can’t wait to watch and learn more from you!

  6. This was really helpful! I work at a nonprofit and have become the de factor SM manager and I really believe in the power of SM for nonprofits but I'm still learning how to make it effective so this kind of info is very much appreciated.

  7. Something I've recently have been struggling with is understanding that "Just because you have a degree doesn't mean you're experienced enough to take on a role". Just wanted to say that I really appreciate your video and how informative it is. Thank you.

  8. Thanks for all these jews! Just received my first portfolio project. Could you make a video on how to write a job proposal to clients/companies.

    Bless up.

  9. Latasha I love this video it was well thought out and thorough. Definitely will be looking forward to more videos! A LinkedIn video is something I would love to see

  10. Where do you suggest placing your portfolio like what platform and how would that look? Do you have any examples?

  11. "I recommend getting this guide if you want to learn how to make it on Social Media: its an amazing opportunity in 2020, want to share it with you guys."

  12. "I recommend using this if you need points:
    its so epic that it exists in 2020…."

  13. "I recommend getting this ebook if you want to learn how to make it on Social Media: it worked in 2020 for me already, want to share it with you guys."

  14. I was inspired with your video. I'm glad to saw it. On Tuesday I'm gonna share my experience to be a social media manager hope you watch it. Thanks 🙂

  15. Wow! Thank you so much for all the wonderful information Latasha! Your video was jam-packed full of such great information.

  16. When you worked in the customer service position, was it a remote job? Im interested in finding a job that deals with only chat/emails. Not sure where to find one. Everything I come across is phone only.

  17. Hey, I loved watching this video. It is very informative and I appreciate it, I'm currently looking for a career change. I've decided to go into Virtual Assitance, as it will free up a lot of time for me. I'm experienced in customer service, sales steering, managing people. however, many businesses have asked if I can do Social media management. I have dabbled in some content posting for my website, social media, but never for business. Please help!

  18. I had to like this video you were at 666 lol Good info thanks for the info, I'm building my site as well in Digital Marketing in Orlando

  19. Hey Latasha great video! I have a question. How do you manage clients social media when they are in a competitive/saturated market? I tried growing my last Instagram account, used hashtags and posted consistently. It didn’t go so well. I guess chalk it up to a learning experience

  20. thanks for the insightful video Latasha, i just sent you a connect request on Linkedin and hope to read more of your content there, too. Love what you do! Also, xoxo from Michigan. (I am from Malcomb, it's on the other side of Kalamazoo)!

  21. I’m a student and want to start social media management freelancing but didn’t know where and how to start. That was really helpful and informative thank you

  22. Thank you! This was very helpful ☺️

    I started my agency almost one year ago and I feel like it’s time to improve 🙌🏼

  23. There's an opening for Social Media Manager at my company, I'm looking for someone with a little bit experience and a positive attitude in life! Anyone want to apply can email their resume at

  24. I notice a lot of people just flooding the media sources with content. Even if the content is subpar, it's like a spray and pray mentality. The Majority of top sites use tons of clickbait and sex appeal. It's the common short attention span denominator on hits.

  25. I've been on the creative side of ad agencies for 30 years. Been on my own for 20 or that. I really appreciate your willingness to share you knowledge. That is rare. I am trying to combine the old school creative with the new school mediums. I think experience is on my side. Thanks for your help!

  26. Your video was exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much for sharing this helpful content and insight. That was so informative! 👍🏻
