There is a long-standing debate around the role of a social media manager: Are they masters of the online universe or simply digitally savvy youngsters who know how to make extremely engaging videos?

With the role of a social media manager ever-evolving, many B2B brands already recognize that social media marketing can:

But one of the newer benefits of social media management is the ability for a social media manager to gain a stronger perspective on how customers think.

Oftentimes, this insight into the customer is greater than many other roles in the organization. So with all their knowledge and experience connecting with a wide range of customers, it is time we start to acknowledge that social media managers might just be our future CMOs.
