thanks cosmo for telling everyone...

I picked up the latest Cosmo today after work - Lady Gaga on the cover convinced me to make the $5.49 purchase. While reading, I came across the "Want a kick-ass new job?" article. One of these newly-discovered jobs - a Professional Tweeter.

Cool. Thanks Cosmo for announcing my dream job to the entire English speaking world. Yes, I realize that it really wasnt a secret to begin with, but that many more people now know.

It's not just Tweeting professionally, its a new marketing lifestyle. It's Social Netmarketing.

This is what I LOVE to do. You get to be engaged with the customers, reach out to them, connect with them. I can honestly say that I now have an area that I am truly interested in with advertising and marketing.

Blogging. Facebooking. Tweeting. Here's the "secret" everyone: get into a marketing or PR firm that has or is in dire need for a social networking strategy. Yes, there are TONS of people that can Facebook their way up and down a street, but how many can actually use it to a companies benefit?

For us SLC grads, we know 2 things well: Advertising and Facebook. Well... we can now add blogging to our list ;)

So Saatchi wont take you in as an intern and you "settle" for a local small biz. Use it to your advantage - show this old school company the new social netmarketing ways of the future. An unexpected position is social marketing may just open up for ya.


  1. Congrats on the aha moment! You're bang on.

  2. This seriously is a new job description. I've seen it posted as "Social Media Coordinator"...personally I like "Twitter Diva". You've found your calling. Now put it out there. Use that skill to get recruited!
